The owner and staff (especially Ibrahim) were very helpful and focused on making us comfortable. The hotel was a former residence that has been lovingly converted into a boutique hotel with excellent furnishings. Our lamb dinner was excellent. Breakfasts in the courtyard were very charming. This hotel was adjacent to date orchards away from the center of town. This worked...

Everything about this place is excellent. Very impressive Riad nicely decorated full of art objects, photos & details. We stayed different times here and it never disappoint us. For sure is the best food available in Zagora. Highlights for the staff, for the rooms and the service. Probably the best in Morocco.

We stayed 2 nights and used it as a base to venture into the desert at M'hamid, an easy drive away. The hotel is beautifully and characterably finished and the staff are extremely personable, friendly and helpful, especially Ibrahim, the manager and the restaurant staff. The food was amongst the best Moroccan cuisine which we enjoyed during this visit to...

Omar & Abraham are the kindest hosts! They made us feel like stars after a very long journey. We shared opinions on music that we love and Joseph and I finally found an alcoholic drink (wonderful Moroccan made Rose wine). Hotel is gorgeous, with terraces and a pool. We were lucky enough to get the top floor room with our...

As ever this a delightful Riad. Our friends were very impressed. It has style and would make the prefect base in Zagora for a few days relaxation. We only stayed for lunch on this occasion but have stayed twice in the past and it's one I always look forward to for comfort and ambience. The pool and rooms have a...

We stayed here with a group on a wonderful Moroccan adventure. The garden room we had was well appointed with comfortable beds, soft pillows and fine linen. The free wifi worked well in our room. The food was delicious both for breakfast, dinner and lunch, and is served in the lovely garden beside the swimming pool. The bar has a...

We have had a wonderful time. We are here on work and have had to extend our stay here for two nights due to rain. The staff, especially Abraham at reception has done everything to make our stay memorable at this beautiful hotel.

At the risk of sounding less than objective I just can't praise this place enough. The grounds are just beautiful and the rooms were perfect. But for me it was the service. All the staff were very obliging and more than happy to go out of their way. There was group of four of us and we dined and breakfasted...

This place! These people! What a beautiful place to arrive at. The whole hotel is just gorgeous, the rooms are lovely and restful - we were lucky enough to be roof top - WOW... spoilt.
