“Serene and Beautiful Retreat Gives Peace of Mind”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2012

Just 5 km outside Ouarzazate is the Oasis de Fint, a lovely valley with date Palms, a small oued, carefully tended private gardens, and lovely authentic Berber villages. Herein lies the comfortable and accommodating Auberge La Terrasse des Delices. Small and simple, and family run, this hotel and staff will strive to meet all your needs and make you feel like part of the local culture. There are opportunities for tea with locals, learning Berber cuisine, observing the local potter, carpet/textile weaving, touring nearby villages by foot or by donkey, mountain trekking, or just peaceful relaxation on the Terrace observing the beauty of this Valley Oasis. The serene quiet of the location, the deep rich colors of the earth and the mountain, the richness of the rays of the sun, the softness of the gentle evening breeze, the songs of the chirping frogs, the lulling baaahhs of the local sheep and goats will relax your mind and body from the stress of work and the hustle and bustle of travelling. Experience the Berber Life. Come and Enjoy!

Near Ouarazate(Hollywood of Morocco) exists the oasis village of Finti. In this remote village is a true oasis Terracces de delices. This fammily owned and operated inn is a delight in this vast desert. Authentic Moroccan food is prepared and served by the family. Away from the cities noise and crowds. Listen to the morning doves and the night frogs. Count the stars while being cared for by a wonderful family.

Room Tip: The rooms are sparse and small but clean and air conditioned.

An incredible setting, peaceful to the exclusion of phone and internet service. Fantastic Berber hospitality and family traditional dishes all served with friendly smiles.
At night traditional music and dance..brilliant.loved it!! and at night when the lights went out...the stars came out..sooooo many stars...and the frogs chanting in the river just added to the romantic feel. The people are so in tune with the land here and there are several treks to take from here with the local Berbers to see and appreciate how they use the natural resourses. I look forward to my next visit!

Thanks to Trip Advisor reviews we decided to stay here during a two week independent tour of Morocco, and avoid the fairly uninteresting nearby town of Ouarzazate.
If you are looking for an authentic, traditional, Berber experience in a superb setting - an incredible and extensive Oasis (Fint) - then this is for you. The USP's of the Terrasse des Delices are:
* Location and views
* Lovely large outdoor terrace overlooking the valley on which breakfast is served
* Authentic and local experience
* The people running the place (our daughter named them the 'furious five' like the characters out of Kung Fu Panda!)

Accommodation is basic but comfortable and clean with hot water. Food was extremely good, both the breakfast with stacks of delicious pancakes and lovely locally produced honey and the evening meal - set in the dining area around a roaring open fire - followed by Berber music and dancing later!
The area is stunning. We had planned to stay one night but ended up staying two as we just had to explore this Oasis. Ismail (aka 'Tigress') took us on a superb morning's walk, where we experienced a young lad catching a barbel out of the river, women catching fish out of wicker baskets, freshwater turtles, heaps of brightly coloured frogs...and we even managed to catch a couple of Viperine snakes (non poisonous water snakes). In the afternoon we went in a different direction, this time on donkeys, the kids had such a laugh (especially as Lee's was just like the Shrek donkey!).
We wouldn't hesitate to go back. This is a paradise for nature lovers, walkers, trekkers. I'd recommend it to independent travellers who are used to staying in 'tourist' class properties but want 'an experience', not just a stay in another hotel where you could be anywhere in the world.
Thanks to Rachid, his father, family and all the team!
PS: I have one question to the Lonely Planet Editorial Team - why is Fint even as a destination not even mentioned in the Morocco guide book????

This is a true esvape from civilization. No phone or wi-fi and amazing view of an oasis. Rooms are tiny and a bit spartan, though the terrace, service, food and quiet worth the travel to this place. We stayed for 2 nights and enjoyrd every minute. The staff took us to a three hrs walkibg tour in the oasis, amazing.
Highly recommended. Make sure you get there during day light, it is very hard to find it at night without help

The Oasis at Fint was absolutely stunning. We were driven across a very barren landscape not far from Ouazarzate and dipped down into a verdant hidden valley lush with palms and small cultivated gardens fenced with brushwood. We forded the river and arrived at the Terraces de Delices and were met by the friendly owner. We went for an evening walk through the cultivated gardens down to the river. Back at the Auberge we were given a lovely meal by a roaring fire and then treated to some live Berber music even though we were the only people staying that night. Our room was basic but comfortable and clean with plenty of hot water to shower. In the morning we wandered to the older deserted village and down by the river where the women were busy communally washing clothes accompanied by the croaking of frogs. The arrival of electricity seven years ago does not seem to have made this place change too fast. We wanted to find a place off the beaten track with the feel of an oasis but without too much driving from Marrakech with a child susceptible to car sickness, and this certainly fulfilled all our expectations and more, it would have been good to stay longer.

Our stay at l'Auberge la Terrace des Delices was the highlight of our trip to Morocco. Nothing could have prepared us for the contrast between the jostling crowds and noise of a city with the tranquility of the Oasis de Fint. This place is a rare jewel and well worth a visit. Whether you want a casual stroll or a strenuous hike in surroundings of magnificent scenery and wildlife, this is the place for you! The warm welcome we received and the authentic cuisine and comfortable surroundings make a stay at the Auberge la Terrace des Delices a must. Beware, progress by car over the last 8 kilometres to Fint is slow, but the end result is truly rewarding. We were even met by one of Rachid's brothers on the outskirts of the Oasis - clearly Rachid is prepared to bend over backwards for his guests. He will arrange 4X4 trips and airport transfers from Ouarzazate for those without the use of a car.
