We stayed here for 3 weeks and absolutely enjoyed it! We were working in the desert most of the days and to come back to a crisp clean room and great snacks was an absolute treat! There is only one pool but still quite sizeable. The food is ok but there's a bunch of great restaurants nearby to choose from. Overall great value for money, very central, and definitely one of the better places to stay in, on Ozz.

I was in Ourzazate working on a film so this was my home for quite a while. The service was great and the people were friendly. The food here is pretty dicey and they make coffee from unfiltered water... Beware. The best restaurant in town is across the street so that makes this place worth it on that alone. The wifi only worked in the lobby or by the pool while I was there. We visited a few other hotels to visit and I definitely had the impression that this place was the best big hotel to stay in within town. With that said, it's not saying much.

Ourzazate, the film capital of Morocco, is a remote town, the gate to the south and it's desert so don't expect big city luxury here but, that said, the Berbere Palace had nothing but good wibes for us. Good value. Charming staff, all of them, excellent no nonsense service, the best, meaning very fast, WIFI (free and everywhere), several good restaurants serving much better fare than the ones in town, very flexible meal offers and times, desert sunrise excursions oblige breakfast starts at 4,30 AM !. No effort is spared to make the clients comfortable. The staff is obviously happy to work but do not omit to tip them, they are poor and deserving. Funny "kitch" decor of movies having been shot around here. A charming hotel which even the sometimes too large tour groups could not spoil for us.

The highlight of this hotel is the pool, which given the hot weather was the place to be. The room was spacious, but a/c didn't work well so they tried to repair it and then switched us to a different room after a hot, sleepless night. Food was okay, quantity over quality and drinks were very expensive.

The hotel is beautiful but the rooms aren't very clean. The service is great and the staff is very polite. The hotel manager watches everyone closely so everything works perfect. I didn't like the food although it was beautifully presented. The location is good.

This is THE place to stay in Ouarzazate for comfort and luxury targeted for Westerners. Beautiful lobby and side areas with interesting movie props and set pieces. Fantastic pool surrounded by well stocked bar, adjacent sitting areas and a large, shaded harem tent, all nicely lit in the evening and a perfect setting for cocktails. Dinner in the main dining room was a buffet, more Western than Moroccan, but good with enough variety to choose. That was okay, considering my friend and I visited in July which is low season. Rooms are in buildings behind the main building, and at the other end are pleasant sitting areas and even a modest gym. The hotel is just a ten minute walk to the plaza at the center of town for some local Moroccan ambience. The staff is attentive and professional, and on that subject, I wish to extend many thanks to concierge Azdin, who immediately accommodated us to change from a large, beautiful room (probably pricey in high season) without balcony, to a smaller one with a balcony, which we requested. (We prefer to smoke outside and not in the room). Also, the next day after visiting Ait Benaddou in the morning (we were staying for two nights), I felt ill and he was immediately at my rescue with immodium and the head maid (she's terrific too) with a plate of bananas. A few hours later, I was back at the pool feeling better. With a huge smile, good sense of humor and great personality, Azdin is the guy to go to for all your needs. If a riad or Moroccan style hotel is what you seek, do it in another city. If you've been on the road with more road to do, but need to catch your breath before moving on to Marrakech, Fez or the desert, stay here.
