Zaghro Hotel
Ranked #16 of 40 Hotels in Ouarzazate
Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

Although two star has many redeeming qualities. Great aircon, large pool, large dinner and breakfast. The shower is less than what we had hoped for, felt like a typical ship bathroom. Tv had no English channels (all we wanted to do was laze after a long day).

But has everything we needed, inuding wifi in the rooms. Much better than we were expecting!

I booked a room at this hotel based on a recommendation. I was skeptic based on the 2-star ratings but was happily surprised once I arrived. You must have a car as it is not in the Ouarzazate downtown area. Other than this, it was a superb value for the price paid: very good Moroccan dinner, clean room with A/C and WiFi, good breakfast before I left for the desert. There is also a pool inside the premises but I haven't used it. Could be interesting for those hot summer days!

A great option on your way to the desert for a halt!

The host is a smiling young man, modest, honest and very helpful without being pushy. The riom were nothing specual, but were clean, had wifi and airco and were very reasonably priced. The breakfast was included. No fresh orange juice but the fresh crispy bread still made it a very fine breakfast. In other words: friendly place and good value for money!

It's a nice hotel with clean rooms, a large pool and good food. But don't be fooled. Ouarzazate is not a quaint small morrocan town. It's a large hot bustling city and there's little (if anything) to do within walking distance.

Stay here if you need to do some admin and shopping in town before heading into the desert, but don't stay here for the destination itself. Go somewhere much nicer in a real small Riad out in one of the many small villages nearby and experience another world.

We spent one night here in early June 2013.

The place seems like it would be a fine hotel, but we didn't have the best experience.

It was probably just bad timing, but they were doing a construction project where they were tracking dirt across the main tiled courtyard... this meant that sitting in the courtyard was unpleasant and the large and otherwise attractive pool was lined in dirt (and there were gross bird feathers and other things floating in the pool too).
Because the courtyard was not enjoyable due to the construction, we spent time in our room. The view from our room was of a construction site, and there was a lot of noise from the project. We also had some trouble with the bathroom plumbing in our room and our TV didnt work properly. We complained and they seemed concerned and they moved our room to another that they sprayed very heavily with a chemical deodorizer, but it was a nicer room with a pool view and a working toilet.

They cooked us a nice dinner and the fresh fruit for dessert was a highlight.

Overall, I'd give this hotel the benefit of the doubt and assume that it's usually a nicer place to stay - but we had a bad visit. As we were checking out the following morning, we saw them cleaning the pool, and it looked much more appealing... but it was too late for us to appreciate.

I'm actually not sure why anyone would visit this town - we spent the night here because we were traveling from Marrakesh to Merzouga and wanted to break the drive up into 4-5 hours a day... This town is known as "Morocco's Hollywood" - there is a major film studio there- and we did a tour of the move sets. The move sets were actually relatively intersting but I wouldn't bother to visit the town if it wasn't a rest stop en route to the dunes.

It is an average hotel - the room was OK, the shower was not that clean, but nothing that we couldn't handle. The swimming pool is absolutely divine, but no-one uses it.

They try to over-charge you for dinner, but it you talk to them, they lower the price. The staff is nice.

Hotel Zaghro isn't bad at all. Rooms are clean, with TV (who needs it?) and private facilities. Staff pretends to be professional, but is fixed to serve the needs of big tour groups, who invade the place in the evening hours.The pool is cleansed just before the arrival, no one uses it though - not only because during daytime it is grubby. Stuff speaks French - and only very little English - and no Spanish at all. So if you have a problem, you should speak proper French. Otherwise "I don't understand" is the most common phrase you'll hear. In my case they charged me more for the room than it was offered and reserved through their website. When they presentes the bill, they simply told me, the room I reserved was a different one than they gave me. Complaints about this business practice were answered with "I don't understand". Sorry, not again.
