“Decent”
Reviewed 18 March 2013 via mobile

Quite an average hotel really and certainly not one of the best in Ouarzazate. Rooms were clean but tired looking and in need of updating. Outside pool area is nice to sit at with a drink, but never saw anyone actually swimming and the food was ok, but nothing special.

Stayed March 2013, travelled with friends

Abismal is the only word for this run down hotel. From the rude and offensive staff demanding a tip. Very rude to the women, to the disgraceful breakfast. Dry and stale breads/pastries. Dinner was JUST enough for a group of 11.

We were the only guests in the hotel the entire night and even then they couldn't manage a smile.

Refused to take our bags to the lobby because one couple refused to tip - the guy insisted on a tip very loudly and rude.

No choice of meals - chicken tangine and fruit. No coffee, no alcohol no after dinner options.

I would not recommend this hotel - cheap yes, cheap and nasty.

Bathroom stunk, towels were ripped and dirty. Asked for replacement towels - they made an issue about it so just gave up. Bed sheets were torn. Toilet leaked water, shower curtain mouldy and stunk.

Not worth your valuable money

it's a nice hotel specially as Ouarzazate is a small town.

rooms are nice with very good air condition, nice bath tub, but the water taste is very bad try not to drink tap water.

staff are not so friendly but ok.

breakfast is good

the pool also is good.

wifi only covered in the lobby but you can find a coverage in the room.

Rude staff, broken toilet, big rooms; something that I adore in a gorgeous plush hotel, but in a broken down room with a broken tv cracked tiles and bad lighting it made me feel like hiding in the corner with a blanket and crying.

The staff were rude and unhelpful. I will never stay here again if I can help it. Awful. Just awful.

Room Tip: Only stay in the riads. i never saw inside but they had to be better than the rooms, it has to be im...

We stayed here just one night as part of our tour after a very long day travelling. We arrived just before sunset and felt we could not enjoy the hotels full facilities but was very impressed with what we did enjoy. The pool was a very good size with the usual surroundings of pool bar, sunbeds and by night this complex looks beautiful with its ambient lighting and gazebo area. We found the hotel very clean, friendly and spacious with many areas to "chill out". The rooms were very spacious, clean and the bath/shower was lovely, hot and had good pressure both night and day. We only had breakfast here and that was usual continental and was very good.

Room Tip: We had a very good room outside in appartment style blocks. As we only had one night here we are una...

This hotel really has two parts: one as a 3-star hotel close to the main road and a 4-star riad further away. We stayed at the riad.

The room was huge - living room, bedroom, two toilets, separate bathroom, but slightly rundown and not entirely clean. The rest of the hotel has the charm of a package holiday resort. Dinner and breakfast were O.K. There was free WLAN in the reception, but not in the room.

The location is very close to Kasbah Taourit, but there is little else of interest in the vicinity.

Reviewed 23 August 2010

This was one of the most depressing hotels I've ever been to. The location, Art Deco architecture and garden should make it a lovely place to stay as a stage ing post for the desert. Sadly, the large rooms are dirty and very strangely decorated. Bathroom facilities ranged from bad to farcical, as the showers didn't work, bidet pipes not attached and the tiles were crumbling from the walls. You need your own soap, as that provided was not enough to wash your hands. Certainly, no mini shampoos etc here.
Tho the food was good, it was delivered with no style or pleasure. Totally rushed service.
This is ripe for a remodel/takeover.
