If you like the Moroccan countryside, picturesque walks, traditional cuisine, and excellent accommodation enhanced by good quality service from Aziz and Ahmad - you must visit here. We have been to many places in Morocco over the last 10 years and this is one of the best. Aziz has a new phone number +212 (0) 661955366

The host was really nice and the treatment has been in perfect moroccan style! The dinner and the breakfast were very good. We had a great time and would truly recommend for everyone to spend a minimum one night at this wonderful spacious place.

Aziz came to take us in Ouarzazate (20km) for free. Then he gave us 2 rooms at a very low price. The place is wonderful and clean. We've been in december so we couldn't use the swimming pool but it was splendid and ready to go. Aziz is one of the most gente person I have ever met, not just...

We were met with mint tea on arrival by the lovely Ahmed, who later on that evening played music with us and shared stories from his culture. Before dinner, the owner Aziz drove us into Ait Ben Haddou to see the sunset over the kasbah, and...

We chose this Riad because of the pool (base on pics from Booking and TripAdvisor). After a long day in the car, we looked forward to a nice dive in the pool. We checked in and got tea, which was a nice welcome. Unfortunately the nice ended there. The bottom of the pool wasn't visible due to brown water. So...

We paid 400dhs for a spacious double room with a/c, shower etc. Dinner was served in a large communal dining room along with a very nice bottle of Moroccan wine called Ksar (140dhs). The highlight of the stay was the after-dinner musical performance of traditional Berbere music. Leaving the hotel from the bottom of the garden one can explore the...
