We were only coming in for 1 night as a stopover from the Sahara to Marrakech, and you actually have to make a small detour to get to the Dar. There's no official place to park your car, but if you park it on the curb of the Dar, someone will look over it. Once inside you'll be amazed by...

Large,old and genuine riad. Staff were exceptional and the food even better They took such good care of us. We had a lovely room with views. My only regret is that we only stayed there for one night. WiFi was spotty but we were lead to believe it was due to satellite issues. Wouldn't have mattered normally but my daughter...

Dear Travelers, hello We thank you for your message on your return after your stay in Dar Daïf, and we are very happy to know your satisfaction with the welcome in Dar Daïf. - Indeed the wifi is very weak for several months, independent to our choices.

Once you made you way to Dar Daif and enter the door you leave all the dust behind you. A nice garden with well, pool, small tables to rest and singing birds. The rooms are small but charming. We had dinner just on the veranda in front of our room. Dinner was excellent as well as the breakfast. Friendly people...

Dear travelers, Indeed we have designed the restoration of the Dar Daïf kasbah to be a resting place for travelers, like caravanserais once.

The view from the hotel balcony was very relaxing. The Beautiful Kasbahs also offered dinner and spa. The staff gave us a wrong room. Normally I don't mind to pack the bags again and move to a new room, but after 6 hours driving, I was exhausted and already changed clothes. It was a very unpleasant discussion at the reception....

You feel at home, that is the best way to say it. Extremely nice and friendly staff, beautiful rooms.....They also have excursions in the area, it is a bit expensive if you are alone, but cheaper if you travel with other people.

A great Ryad in Ouarzazate and probably one of the best in whole Morocco without exageration. This place has such a special athmosphere !

From the moment you step through the arched door, you are treated like a guest, rather than a customer - from the welcome of mint tea and moroccan cookies in the room, to the slippers provided to walk around the residence, it seems that everything at Kasbah Dar Diaf is done with a mind toward the comfort of the guest....
