Being new to morocco we travelled down from marrakech via Ait Ben Haddou. The Riad Sofian is a luxurious complex with swimming pool and garden setting. A very welcome surprise for our desert trip staging post. A very different proposition to Marrakesh Riads and relatively cheap for the quality. The town itself offers little so it is a great option... More

Architectural interesting on first arrival, it's layout reminded me of designs of bygone era with a central descending staircase. The rooms are of a high standard of bedding and furnishings whilst the pool area is excellent. The staff of friendly and informative. This really is sanctuary after a long drive and well worth the booking. It's now our firm favourite... More

we stayed at the Riad for one night on our way to the desert. it's an oasis of calm, stylish architecture and traditional art objects, a very large swimming pool surrounded by palm trees, friendly staff (thanks Ibrahim!) and fantastic dinner with home made fresh bread. the vegetarian couscous is highly recommended. the rooms are spacious and comfortable, wifi is...

This has to be one of my all time favourite hotels - I fell in love with Dar Sofian the minute I arrived. This is a little piece of magic in a barren desert landscape with beautiful decoration and plants, cozy rooms, nice food, a great pool and a very welcoming personnel. I wish I stayed longer - but this... More

We stayed in this Riad alas only for one night whilst enroute to the desert. The Riad had been pre-booked by OUARZAZATE UNLIMITED as part of our Sahara Desert trip. We arrived at this beautiful, peaceful Riad to a warm welcome and mint tea, dates and olives by the pool. The whole Riad is beautifully appointed as was our bedroom.... More

The best riad/guest house in Zagora.... .maybe Morocco. Had to change our travel plans at last minute and Booking.com charged us 80 Euro cancellation fee. However when we showed up 2 days later the owner (Slimane) was very understanding and we stayed that night at now further charge. Fabulous rooms, courtyard and pool area. Super comfortable beds.

We arrived by motorcycle and were very tired. The hotel provided impeccable attention and service. The motorcycles were under surveillance the whole night and all the facilities worked well. As an added bonus, they are pet-friendly and considerate to animals, especially the hotel's cat Good swimming pool, courteous staff Pricing on the up-scale end but well worth it for a... More

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
