My wife and I stayed at La Perle du Sud for one night when we needed to make a last minute trip to Ouarzazate. We were pleasantly surprised by the place, it is nicely decorated, and we had a spacious and comfortable room with air conditioning. The hotel has a nice (small) pool, which also had a bar that served beer during Ramadan (not the case everywhere). Reasonable price, also included breakfast which we did not eat. About a ten minute walk to the main square and (in the other direction) to the Supratours stop.
Let's just say that if you like no wifi, hard beds in a room that's been smoked in (the airconditioning still breathes the smell) and a callgirl at the entrance, you're good here. The service is allright but other than that, I wouldn't recommend this hotel. Oh, and the swimming pool looses sunlight after 16.30h.
As this was the 1st night for our Exodus tour, we booked in for another night the day before the tour, in order to see a bit of Ouazzarzate. NOTE: We booked a Junior suite using one of the Tripadvisor search engines, as one of them had a price of 40 euros, which is less than the 500 dirhams for a standard room on the hotel website rates list!
The suite was huge, with a lovely outdoor balcony.
As others have noted, the nighclub next door is very loud, bring earplugs!
The breakfast is average and suffers from bored-I-don't-care staff.
At the price we paid, it's a good hotel. If we'd had a standard room for the same price, I'd rate it a 1 star!
We have stayed at this hotel several times and always forund the staff most accommodating and helpful. The rooms vary in size and facilities so it's always worth checking them out before you decide which one you'd prefer. We stay mainly in January/Feb when it's not very busy and have always been treated very well. Internet booking has given us great value all the time.
The breakfasts are great and this year the evening meals have also been good, particularly the lamb tagine which has plenty of tender, tasty lamb and good vegetables. One tip for the choice of rooms - there is a night club and piano bar adjacent to the hotel on the ground-floor. These can get noisy late at night and, if you're an early-nighter, you might prefer a room at the back or side of the hotel - again, check your room choice first!
It's not really a pearl of the South but it is an okay hotel for a stopover in Ouarzazate. The rooms are a bit outdated but clean. Breakfast was good, with pancakes which were made at the breakfastbuffet. The location is fine, you easily can get to the main square in Ouarzazate and are on the right side of the town for a visit to the filmstudios.
