Dar Rita
Ranked #10 of 63 Ouarzazate B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 February 2013

It was cozy,warm,friendly and in the heart of the old town. The location enabled you to get a glimpse of the "real" Morroco. Rita's place was very colourful and looked beautifully Morrocan. Rita was a lovely host,great chef and was extremely friendly. One of our highlights was having a picnic lunch on the rooftop terrace, under the shade of the cabana. We had 4kids aged 10-14 in our group-they relaxed, felt safe running around (even playing soccer with the local kids).
Our group enjoyed it as it felt like a home away from home-thanks Rita. Our kids have not stopped talking about when we are going back to Rita's!

The reason to stay at Dar Rita is Rita! Our party of seven stayed for only two nights but we were treated like royalty and the food was as divine as many other reviewers have stated. Be sure to plan a dinner with Rita! it was our best meal in Morocco and we said that everywhere we went until our last night which was with Rita and there was no contest. Rita arranged two different trips for us which went like clockwork in clean moder vans with a wonderful courteous driver. Our rooms, the meals and the travel Rita arranged were both our best value and our most enjoyable in two weeks in Morocco. We cannot recommend Rita and her lovely guesthouse highly enough,

Probably the most enjoyable meal we had in Morocco during our entire tour was at RIta's Dar. The dar is nicely decorated - a bit unique in some aspects - very comfortable and comparable to many other residences we stayed in Morocco but Rita's home cooked food was uncomparable. Very highly recommended for a great dining experience without compromising the quality of stay.

We stayed at Dar Rita for four memorable nights and can not recommend this haven highly enough. The welcome we received on arrival was an indication of things to come - mint tea, cakes and Rita telling the children to treat her house as a home. These comments they took to heart and if asked what they would like to do in the day would answer "stay at Rita's". We strongly recommend having dinner there -delicious, delicious, delicious and all in a very cosy Morrocann style atmosphere. We can not thank Rita enough for all she helped us with during our stay.Rita you gave us the best start to our Morrocan adventure. Merci

We arrived to Ouarzazate after a long day and a little concern for our 4x4's tyres.
We easily found the cosy square where everybody in the neighbourhood knows Dar Rita, and we were accompanied to the front door and entered this little oasis of kindness.
The tea and the pastries we were welcome-served left a mark and made us feeling very good right away.
The international flavour of the place and the close connection to the local people that it offers to the travellers looking for the human touch make of it a very good memory for us.
Rita also recommended the perfect place for a nice dinner too, and stayed with us until she waved at our departure.

Darling Rita runs a small guesthouse off a small side street in Ouarzazate, close to the bus station. We spent 2 nights and ate dinner there both nights. Rita put flavourful food on the table and a friendly atmosphere. Unfortunately, the pipes froze overnight on our second night, we couldn't have showers before our taxi out of town. Fluke weather aside, a great place to stay on the way east out of Marakech.

I stayed 3 days in this guest house located on a traditional neighboorhod in Ouarzazate city. It was a bit difficult to find but after asking few people we got there easily. Also my husband's phone map was very useful. Dar Rita is a 3 floors house with a very friendly Portuguese host called Rita. She served us tea and presented us to a very well decorated house. I got to have the biggest room of the house and my daughters got a twin room just close to us. Other clients were on the riad but rita had time to talk with us about her experience in this exotic country. During 3 days we visited the unesco Ksar of Ait Benhaddou, Tifoultoute Kasbah, Taourirt Kasbah, Fint Oasis, Film studios and cinema museum. This was a very nice relaxing city after one busy and euphoric week in Marrakech. We loved the amazing breakfast - the BEST in Morocco no doubt about it. The house is spacious and just perfect for our little family stay. We would love to come back.
