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!

Very clean and comfortable. Excellent service. Friendly atmosphere. Good price. International and local residents.We are spanish students travelling around morocco during easter. We found this lovely hotel by chance and they were kind enough to fit us into a very nice room when there were, technically, no rooms available.

We had stayed at Riad dar Sofian in June 2013 and I have meant to write a review ever since. This is a very charming, luxurious hotel. Service was superb. The pool was fantastic, after a long day of traveling in the desert. The restaurant was great. We are vegetarian and the kitchen staff was wonderful about creative interesting meals... More

During our stay the Manager/owner was not in town, but the rest of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was nice, although the Baby bed was no longer fully functional (one end sagged down) and we don't understand why such a nice place does not have doors between bed room and toilet area, just curtains. Then we... More

We were here for only 1 night, and regretted having to leave so soon. We were taken away by how beautiful the outdoor lounging area is, especially at night when the lights are turned on. It would be heavenly to lounge outdoors by the pool during the hot summer months! We enjoyed a delicious 3 course dinner in their beautiful... More
