Does Ouarzazate has modern conviniences?

I am considering for a night stay in Ourzazate and wondering if

the place has:

Hotels/Riads

Hospital in case of emergency

I am looking for comfortable settings and I am wondering if that

is the case for Ouarzazate?.

And I have done search, If any of the destinationExperts

wants to advise me on using the search button :-), please

do the search and provide me the link since I certainly

could not find the answer on my own..

Ouarzazate is a city, so of course it has hotels and hospital and other facilities a city should have.

People like Brad Pitt, Krussel Crow, Jean Claude Van Damme, Micheal Douglas, and Timothy Dalton would not come to shoot movies in a place without hotels or hospitals.

Good info, thanks.

You never know, celebrities have so much money that they may be

carrying their own hospital around :-) Joking aside, some of them may

have their personal doctor that travels with them if they go to remote

areas. And they may even drop some change considering

their income and buy or rent a home in the area.

What about Merzouga? is there a town and hotel and hospitals around?

I keep seeing the name in travel books but no other info.

Of course when a large film crew comes to town it has its own medical personnel, plus the facility to do evacuation by air ambulance or helicopter. This is a requirement laid down by the film's insurers and by the studios which back the film.
