I liked staying here. THe breakfast is large and very good. My favorite part was walking in the palm tree forest behind the property. If you are bold you can make it into town in about 20 minutes. They also have a nice collection of books in english available for reading and alot of cosy nooks to read in.

Despite being almost the only people staying here the staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful. The rooms are immaculately clean and comfortable. All have aircon/heating.There is a variety of styles and sizes - we chose a roof top terrace one with its own sitting out area. We ate here and the food was excellent - even more... More

We decided to stay in a comfortable place the nights before and after a 6-day trek in the desert. And I must say the Riad dar Sofian which my lovely wife has chosen was more than perfect! It was like entering a little paradise! We were looking forward to returning there during the whole desert trek - even though the... More

We spent two nights here, our jumping-off place for a visit to the desert arranged for us by the hotel (not cheap, but well done). The building is exquisite. The pool is lovely, and we had it to ourselves. The staff was very friendly and helpful. And the free camel ride in the palm grove near the hotel was fun.

From the moment you pass through the front door, you are almost overwhelmed by the beauty, peace and tranquility of this Riad. The office area is one floor below the entrance and opposite a "water wall" that extends over three or four floors! Antiques abound, all Moroccan and not nailed to the walls so you can actually handle and feel... More

We stayed one night at this beautiful riad and had a fabulous room on the top floor with a very private terrace. The staff was very warm and friendly. The young lady who checked us in did not speak English and we don't speak French but everything worked out fine. The food was great and the service outstanding. We had... More

We stayed at the Riad dar Sofian for two nights. The hotel has a beautiful interior design, a wonderful pool area and great food. The staff is extremely friendly and we had very interesting conversations with the owner. Would definitely recommend this to anyone planning a trip to Zagora!
