First off, friendly staff. Aziz played a great host. He was welcoming and talked to us about things to do around Ouarzazate. Its almost important to have a layover in Ouarzazate when driving to the desert or back to Marrakech. This is a nice refuge where the riad is nice, clean, and well maintained. The morning breakfast was delicious as... More

Nothing to complain about this place. Rooms are clean and nice staff helpful and breakfast freshly cooked. Good value for the price in Ouarzazate. It is a bit hard to find but signs indicate clearly the route. The neighborhood is quiet and away from the touristic spots. We appreciated our stay.

You need to make a few twists and turns to find it, but Dar Rita is worth the effort. Friendly and welcoming staff, lovely decor and architecture, pretty reliable hot water, and good food make a combination that is hard to beat in this price range.

It wasn't hard to find, but the location of Dar Rita is a little out of the way. Tucked within dusty Tassoumaat village -- a very local, working class residential area -- it is about 1.5 km to the centre of Ouarzazate town. The route to the town centre is straightforward (along the main road) and there is a bus... More

An overnight stopover at Ouarzazate on our way to Erfoud at this property was indeed a wonderful experience. Quite close to the city centre, This place is aesthetically done up with artefacts and brilliant colours. The manager Aziz with his ever smiling face welcomed us and since we were hungry after a long bus ride, whipped up an awesome Moroccan... More

This was one of our favorite stays in Morocco. We originally booked only two nights, but after my wife and I became ill during our stay, Aziz the property manager was nice enough to let us book a third night to recover. The service was excellent...top quality. The breakfast was the best we had all trip...many places only offer bread... More

With board games and large common areas Dar Rita is set up to encourage guests to socialise and trade travel stories. Unfortunately, due to our time constraints we couldn't take full advantage of this but we enjoyed relaxing on the roof top (where we could hear goats bleating from the neighbour's roof!). Although we would have liked to walk to... More

Here you'll live in a typical/ characteristic neighborhood with friendly staff and great level of cleanliness. We recommend! They also serve a very good meal and have a beautiful terrace where you can rest at the end of the day.

The review is a bit overdue as we stayed at Dar Rita in March. The hosts were absolutely fantastic - Joao went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable, picking us up when we were quite lost in Ouarzazate. The other staff were extremely friendly, as were the guests. We got some great tips on where to go next... More

Dar Rita has the most enthusiastic staff we encountered in our travels. Very friendly and always happy to help. Dinner here is a must, the food is fabulous, definitely one of the best meals we had in all of Morocco. Amazing. Rooms are spacious and clean. Only complaint is the location, a bit of a walk from the city centre... More
