I was in dar daif with some friends. We spent one night, it was for us beyond our imagination. We didn't want to leave. The architecture, the location, the colors, the stuff, and the very friendly owner. Everything seemed to be perfect. I would love to go there again

Most amazing helpful staff! Especially the help of the owner in advising us the spots to visit were the best. Good clean rooms, and a nice pool. The breakfast was typical Moroccan, and delicious. They even washed our car for free! If you are going to visit Ouarzazate, you should definitely stay at Dar Daif.

The road that leads to this gorgeous Riad reveals nothing of the beauty that will be revealed to you as soon as you are inside Dar Daif. The building is large and complicated.

This Kasbah/hotel is not located in the city center so I would only recommend if you don't mind driving a few kilometers out of your way to reach it. They have secure parking.

Simply the best place I have even been to rest. I will return and I will tell everyone will pass to Uarzazate to pass at least one night in the Dar Daif. The ambient, the apartment, the people, the hammam...everything is incredible.
