Wonderful experience staying in riad.Fatima was a wonderful host and the staff are very friendly and helpful.We had two evening meals there by the pool which were very enjoyable and home cooked , our best meals in Morocco.Would suggest booking in for for dinner as the restaurants are too far to walk.Would have liked to stay longer and enjoy the setting.

It's in the newer part of the city. Everything there is great, service and value for money.

Great staff and French owner, a very lovely riad with a wonderful pool and terrace, and the food--exceptional dinner and breakfast. I only wish we had time to spend more than one night there and relax.

Encouraged by the positive reports on trip-advisor, we stayed 2 nights in "Le Petit Riad" on our way to the desert in M'Hamid and another 2 nights on our return before visiting the Dadès Gorge. We can certainly confirm all
the positive reports: Fatima and Jamel were very helpful and friendly hosts.
The meals were delicious, the rooms charmingly decorated and clean and the swimming pool very welcome after a long day's driving/sight-seeing.
Ouarzazate is well-situated to visit Ait Ben Hadou, The Draa valley and the
Dadès Gorge and we were extremely satisfied with the standards offered
in "Le Petit Riad".

10 of us with 10 motorbikes stayed here for one night in early May.

Absolutely beautiful guesthouse - entrance area with lovely decoration and artworks (the owner is an artist), small but gorgeous swimming pool area with amazingly vivid colourful flowers everywhere. The food was terrific, probably the best tasting we had in 2 weeks in Morocco.

The owner hardly speaks any english, but the guy who works there (sorry can't remember his name) is pretty good. He is so friendly and helpful - nothing is a problem and you are really made feel welcome here in their home.

We did not explore the town so can't say how good the location is, apart from the fact being beside the (very quiet) airport it is really easy to find.

Watch out for the loud call to prayers at around 5 am.

The owner and staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. We always looked forward to breakfast in the poolside garden.

Fatima and her staff out-did them selves and her amazing villa "La Petit Riad". The food was out of this world; incredible staff; and the villa itself was a slice of heaven!~ There were four of us (two couples and a 1 yr old baby) and it was a relaxing retreat that would make couples, friends, families or individual travelers feel right at home. I can't say enough about our stay here, and would highly recommend it to everyone. Merci, Fatima!
