I have problem with this hotel, I don’t want to be unfair, I spent there two separate nights, in two different rooms. First night was nice, with birds waking me up, but second, because of not working air condition was the most terrible hotel night I’ve ever had, additionally that room was on the roof and just in front of...

This accommodation wasn't our choice as it came part of a pre arranged package for our Marathon Des Sables event. We did a quick check on line before we arrived and thought the hotel however would be fine, the photos of the pool and the hotel look nice, and on arrival it looks the part.....from the outside. The rooms however... More

The grounds were stunning with lots of fully grown trees. Pomegranates grow by the pool with dates and citrus higher up. The rooms were palatial in appearance but needed a slight bit of maintenance (door locks, AC units not up to the task in such large rooms). Food ok but a low point of the stay. Fresh breakfast pancakes cooked... More

Quite an average hotel really and certainly not one of the best in Ouarzazate. Rooms were clean but tired looking and in need of updating. Outside pool area is nice to sit at with a drink, but never saw anyone actually swimming and the food was ok, but nothing special.

Abismal is the only word for this run down hotel. From the rude and offensive staff demanding a tip. Very rude to the women, to the disgraceful breakfast. Dry and stale breads/pastries. Dinner was JUST enough for a group of 11. We were the only guests in the hotel the entire night and even then they couldn't manage a smile.... More

Rude staff, broken toilet, big rooms; something that I adore in a gorgeous plush hotel, but in a broken down room with a broken tv cracked tiles and bad lighting it made me feel like hiding in the corner with a blanket and crying. The staff were rude and unhelpful. I will never stay here again if I can help... More

We stayed here just one night as part of our tour after a very long day travelling. We arrived just before sunset and felt we could not enjoy the hotels full facilities but was very impressed with what we did enjoy. The pool was a very good size with the usual surroundings of pool bar, sunbeds and by night this... More

This hotel really has two parts: one as a 3-star hotel close to the main road and a 4-star riad further away. We stayed at the riad. The room was huge - living room, bedroom, two toilets, separate bathroom, but slightly rundown and not entirely clean. The rest of the hotel has the charm of a package holiday resort. Dinner...

This was one of the most depressing hotels I've ever been to. The location, Art Deco architecture and garden should make it a lovely place to stay as a stage ing post for the desert. Sadly, the large rooms are dirty and very strangely decorated. Bathroom facilities ranged from bad to farcical, as the showers didn't work, bidet pipes not... More
