We enjoyed a very nice and confortable stay (one night) at Jilly and Hassan's. They were very friendly and supported us in every request we had. The Riad is very nicely decorated, the roof terrace has great views and the food was very delicous. In case we will come to Quarzazate again, we will definetely repeat our visit. Unfortunately the...

This is where we stayed our first night in Morocco. Our guide recommended it and even called ahead to have the heat turned on in the rooms. The staff was wonderful and extremely friendly. They fed us a feast and played music while we ate. Our room was cozy, with a comfortable bed and clean bathroom.

It is a lovely hotel, everyone is friendly and helpful. It is cozy and tidy. The view is magnificent, just behind the hotel is a palmery, futher is the town of Ouarzazat and you see the mountain range with snowcapped summits. Tasty meals. Here you really relax and enjoy. Rik and Christine

We arrived at this hotel only to have a lunch but finally we stayed 3 days. The staff was the kindest we found in Morocco: Khalid the receptionist welcome us warmly and take us to the restaurant. There, Bahsini the waiter make us laugh a lot while he was serving us the tasty food cooked in the same riad. After,...

Away from the main drag on the North edge of town. An attractive building with interesting, traditional and slightly quirky decor and a welcoming feel. Great view to the mountains from the terrace. Good food. Comfortable room. The staff were very patient, helpful and had a good sense of humour. One of us had a really bad head cold and...

We stayed at Dar Barbara two times during our trip in Morocco; the first time after being put in another "good" hotel by a bad travel agent. The Riad is very quiet, clean and has good AC. The food is excellent, and Hassan and his family are very friendly and make you feel at home immediately. The only slight disadvantage...
