“Great side trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

If you've had enough of Kasbah's, tired of haggling at the Souks, weary after a long drive, this Oasis will be the perfect antidote. Off the beaten path, on a side road from Ouarzazate, it was a great stop over for us and one we wished we had more time to explore. There are villages all around this Oasis, dependant on it from food to washing, it is as close to the locals as you will get.

“Superb visual contrast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

On a recent visit to Ouarzazete with temperatures around the 40s I decided to spend the day at Oasis Fint. The piste is a little on the rough side but as the oasis is just a short distance, it is accessible without a 4x4drive if you drive with care.

A superb visual contrast from the heat of the black rocky escarpments is the sharp green of the lush oasis. If the weather is not too hot, take some time to walk through the main village or follow the road to Bivouac des Aigles. It is cooling to wander along the water with the turtles, frogs and fish or to sit with a picnic. There are several auberges in the oasis if you decide to stay the night.

I enjoyed lunch at Auberge/Restaurant La Roche Noire; Chicken brochette, fresh crispy cold salad with flat bread, followed by icy cold melon. Beautiful and refreshing on a hot summers’ day.

I would definitely recommend a day or longer here to rest, relax and rejuvenate.

“This is what they call an Oasis!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

Perfect for a few hours to really understand the Oasis concept. I could image coming over the rise and seeing the palms and river. Aziz for tea was an experience, a real character.

“oasis in the desert”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

I would liked to have stayed longer or to have had a guide to explain the history of the place, it is not to far from Ouarzazate and will pass a couple of hours .
