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

We were driving from the uk to m hamid south of zagora. I stopped to see if they had any rooms for two nights, we stayed in the tent of the hotel. So glad we did, a great place to stop for a rest at a good price. The staff were great in being helpful and friendly, the manager was... 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. Lounge with big... More

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

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.
