My husband and I flew into Ouarzazate directly from Paris, so this was our first experience in Morocco. Our hosts could not have been more helpful. They arranged an airport pickup for us, gave us a gracious welcome with mint tea and cookies by the pool, a lovely room with a private outdoor sitting room, and a delicious breakfast. We also had dinner there and it was probably one of the three best dinners we had in our 10 day visit to Morocco. It is very near the sirpory, but only a short taxi ride into the main town. Thank you do much.

We stayed at this Riad for one night as a half-way stop between Marrakech and m'Hamid (the desert). We wanted to alter our reservation at the very last minute to a different
day and were able to do this with no problem at all.
Our room was clean and comfortable with a lovely big bed and large en suite bathroom/ wet room.

Dinner was delicious- freshly prepared traditional Moroccan food.

This Riad is lovely and peaceful- a perfect place for us to recharge prior to a trip to the desert.

My husband and I stayed at Le Petit Riad for just one night on our way back to Marrakech from the Sahara. We wish we could have stayed for longer! The Owner is so friendly and accommodating. We chatted with her as we enjoyed our mint tea in the courtyard by the pool upon arrival. The breakfast was delicious and it was very relaxing to enjoy it by the pool in the morning. Our room was on the second floor and was beautifully decorated. The bathroom and room were both spacious. A large terrace on the second floor provided an area to enjoy the outdoors.

It should be mentioned that the riad is not right within walking distance of the main area of Ouarzazate with shops/restaurants. It is worth staying here for the hospitality and tranquility though. Without a doubt, I would recommend this riad to anyone looking for a hotel in the area!!

I saw many reviews and believed that it would be a very good stay. In fact, the dinner there is amazing (I dare saying the best I had in Morocco). But we had problems with hot shower and the owner arranged us a driver that did not speak English, although we have asked that. Despite the fact that we showed our dissatisfaction with this situation in the very first day, she only showed concern when we Ieft and they arranged an English speaker guide to take us to Marrakesh (totally unnecessary).

One point, the staff is really, really kind and sweet.

The room is simple, but one can live with that. To sum up it is a good price for the room and again, for the dinner, really outstanding. I recommend, but knowing that it will be a simple stay and you may face some problems.

Room Tip: When I arrived, no room was being used, so I saw all of them. I stayed at the one in the up floor, a...

We stayed at the Le Petit Riad for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff were very friendly and always went out of their way to help out. We had an early start (2:30am) one morning but had breakfast prepared before our departure. They were also great at organising taxis for us to go to and from places of interest. The Riad doesn't have a set menu but they do provide food which was another highlight. The chicken skewers were absolutely delicious. It's a bit of a walk to get to the main medina but that's a minor inconvenience. I'd highly recommend this as a place to stay.
