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... More

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

We stayed two nights at Riad Salam. This hotel offers a very good price/quality ratio (60 € a night). The room was very large, actually two separate rooms with TV's in both. A little old fashioned and bit dark, but lots of space and clean. There were air conditions in both rooms. The breakfast is good and served in front... More

I liked this hotel. It had quite a lot of character, and a slightly French atmosphere. The rooms were large and well-furnished, with separate WC and separate bathroom. The room did have some traffic noise. The pool was pleasant, and there was free wifi in the poolside area and lobby. The restaurant offered a buffet meal which was perfectly adequate,... More
