This is a very large hotel, yet well organized and runs efficiently. It was a quick stop, in at the end of the day and out the next morning first thing. We were delighted to have a suite and there was more than enough room for our quick stay. The shower and tub were in separate rooms which made for easy clean up time. The buffet in the large dining room was extensive and lots of good choices to be made and delicious. The only problem we had were the extensive number of fruit flies in the tub.

The hotel is nice, very clean and well placed for the town, the staff make this hotel a pleasant stay as they cannot do enough to help you. drinks are expensive and there is inconsistency with room rates. If film crews are staying here, its noisy and the pool area is crowded

Room Tip: all rooms are private

We stopped here for one night on our way to Marrakesh coming from Erfoud. It's a very nice hotel and makes a feature of all the films that have been shot in the area. Our room was spacious and very comfortable. We didn't eat dinner in the hotel as someone had recommended a local restaurant. Breakfast was served buffet style which was perfectly fine. The whole experience was very comfortable but the actual hotel lacks the charm of many of the other riads and hotels we stayed in. It could have been a hotel in California or Arizona. HAving said that, it is very conveniently located and all in all a very nice stay.

In general, I think it matters greatly whether you are traveling to or from the desert. Obviously, if you have been roughing it, the hotel will seem more glamorous and comfortable. If you are coming from urban, five-star accommodations it will seem less so.
Specifically here are three responses to earlier reviews and room tips -- working backwards to the beginning of 2013:
May -- There is good shopping down the street as well; don't limit yourself to the stores you can see from the hotel entrance.
March -- The rooms are not the same; there are lovely suites available as well.
January -- I thought the "cheesy" movie props were actually rather charming -- celebrating Quarzazate's film industry (Atlas Studios is one of the largest in the world.).

This is a lovely hotel, with a very large restaurant and bar area. The room was very private in the way it was situated - the hotel is laid out with rooms as separate "cabanas" - and in our case, only two rooms were in our "cabana". We enjoyed the breakfast buffet - the selection was wonderful. Don't miss the shopping across the street from the entrance!

Would recommend this hotel if you are planning to visit the Sahara desert as the hotel is 4 hours hair raising drive from the airport over the Atlas mountains! We went to see our son come in having run the Marathon des Sables and the trip was expertly arranged by Complete Morocco. info@completemorocco.com who only arrange bespoke trips to unusal places in Morocco. The hotel itself was beautiful and the service super - they even provided a full lavish breakfast for us all at 2.45 a.m. before our 6 hour drive to the finishing post ! Frankly, we were only expecting toast and jam. The rooms very comfortable and clean and the swimming pool and surrounding areas first class. Would highly recommend.

This is like an oasis of luxury in the desert city! The facade resembles a Casba wall, and seems foreboding. But you step inside, and it's all calmness, tranquility, and amazing movie memorabilia from many movies shot in the area by the local studios.

The rooms are laid out in garden style, and, again, from the outside appear quite ordinary. But inside, the decor is a perfect harmony of colors, textures and accessories: plush rugs, comfortable couches with large throw pillows, tapestries. The bedroom is a nice mix of modern furniture with local art & craft enhancements, large comfy bed, and spacious closets. The bathroom is equipped with all the latest amenities and top-line toiletries.

The restaurant is well-staffed, the service is efficient & courteous, though our dinner was a bit boring and flat in imagination and taste. However, the grounds of this property are absolutely amazing: everything is pristine, beautifully landscaped, also dotted with large movie props in the garden and around the pool, where the large draped cabanas, equipped with plush chaises and sofas, beacon you to step in from the heat.

If you are in this area, and want to sleep where the stars have slept, this is the place to be.
