“Hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

This beautiful riyad is in the outskirts of Ouarzazate, with a backdrop of rocky hills where goats travel. The surrounding neighborhood is not much to see in terms of beauty, but is still a fascinating look into everyday life in rural/small town Morocco. We watched the goings on from the rooftop terrace and enjoyed seeing the goat herds come in and be fed, chickens running in and out of the house across the way, and the family preparing couscous on their back patio. We did walk after dinner, not far because there were no street lights .
The pool and pool area is inviting and comfortable - a welcome dip in the hot afternoon.
The decor in the common areas and in our rooms was low key, tastefully beautiful.
What stood out was the food. We had a superior breakfast and dinner that, although common Moroccan fare (breakfast crepes and pastries, vegetable soup, chicken tagine with vegetables), it was so well done that it seemed like totally new dishes .
Bathroom and shower were great.
We had excellent service from cordial staff.
I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms have air conditioning but no ceiling fan.

1 night stay in this new complex and was here to just relax as part of an overnight stay on a tour.
The room was large, clean and new. the food was excellent both in the evening and morning and the service from the porters/desk staff was excellent. The pool area was nice also as you can see from my picture attached.

Newly build riad a few kilometers outside Ouarzazate. Its very nice, very good food, only thing is that there s nothing outside, it s a big construction site, so a walk around during the evening or something is not possible. Hassan the owner comes to you to ask you to improve the riads performance by reviewing it (not on TA, but direct) If you need to do a stopover in Ouarzazate this is a good place if you want to stay in Ouarzazate I should suggest a riad or hotel downtown.

The riad was recommended by Maroc Excursions (strongly recommend) and it was a good 1 nite stay. The food was excellent and the staff was friendly. I enjoyed the beef tagine and creme brulee very much. Very delicious. The wifi network was strong and working well. :) I stayed on the rooftop floor and it has an excellent view of the city.

We were greeted with tea and amazing cookies, and they insisted on taking our luggage up to our spatious, clean room. The pool and the patio are very clean. Dinner consisted of vegetable soup, rice spring rolls, beef and apricot tagine, followed by strawberry creme brulee. The breakfast was served buffet-style but was also very good. We cannot complain about this 5-star accomodation located a few kilometres away from Ouarzazate!!!

We stayed here for one night as part of our tour (with Roughtours - also highly recommended). It was a great place to stay after a night in the desert - very calm, relaxing with great food and friendly staff. They really make an effort to make it a beautiful place to stay, lighting candles at night time and serving breakfast on the patio. Highly recommended.

This riad was part of my tour arrangement and it was a nice selection, though I would not have located the place on my own. It was nice to look over the town/village from the top of the nearby hill and hear the symphony of roosters in the morning; stayed only one night but would have been happy to stay a couple more in this comfortable, cosy place. The staff and owner were wonderfully warm and hospitable... thanks Hassan!
