We stayed at the riad which is decorated in a very lavish (and kitch) way... The beds were comfortable and the heating worked, but I didn't have hot water (or any water really) at night so couldn't take a shower (we were staying at the top terrace room. We couldn't see the stars because of the military base lights just... More

Our planned two night stay here was very quickly increased to four! The friendly yet efficient and professional staff members, together with the beautiful surroundings of the cactus garden and pool area, plus the amazing decor and furnishings inside the Riad (all kept very clean and attractive) made our stay here a truly unique.and relaxing experience.

The dar Sofian is a real gem! The house and all its rooms are most beautiful. The garden is a pure oasis! The staff is very friendly and we enjoyed a very tasty dinner. We wish we would have had more time here to spend. Come, relax and enjoy, pamper yourself :-)

We planned to stay in this riad for just one night before our planned trip to the desert. But immediately after our arrival we realized that this place is so beautiful that we have to stay one more night. The riad has beautiful garden with palms and pool where one can enjoy breakfast or dinner. Breakfasts are wonderful and tasty... More

Gorgeous riad with beautiful, unique furnishings. The owner has put some real thought, not to mention talent, into the interior design. Rooms are more minimal with comfortable beds and crisp white sheets, quality duvets and pillows. Room lighting and aircon great too. Everything was clean and new. Service was 5 star - both Ibrahim and Khalid the staff on duty... More

My husband and I stayed one night here on our way to the desert. It is set in a beautiful palmerie and the riad itself is gorgeously decorated. We arrived in the late evening tired and hungry. The staff was super friendly and accommodating--they were there to greet us when we pulled in and arranged for us to have dinner... More

We got here after a long day of drive. We didn't booked a place in advance just searched trip advisor... Probably the best place recommended... Make no mistake. Ibrahim and his crew made our stay unforgettable. A tour by sunset at the local Casbah... A dinner next to the pool with great atmosphere... Miss it already.

It's one of the more expensive hotels in Zagora but absolutely worth every Dirham. Stayed here 2 nights instead of the one we originally booked, I guess this says enough... The Riad is exactly as pictured on the photos, English and French is spoken, excursions and/ or walking tours can be booked in the riad. You need a car to... More
