Review of Dar Daif Ouarzazate, Morocco

Located in the suburb of Tabounte, some 3 kilometers outside town, Dar Daif is one of the best places to stay in Ouarzazate.

This is essentially a pise Kasbah beautifully restored by its French owner into a charming and traditional guesthouse set in the midst of an authentic village. The rooms are decorated in romantic southern Moroccan style and the views from its terrace over the High Atlas Mountains in the background are simply amazing.

In all, there are 9 rooms and 2 suites. Facilities include swimming pool, a tree-filled patio and a traditional hammam. Jean-Pierre, the owner, and his Moroccan wife are very helpful and will even arrange excursions to the oases and the deeper desert.
