Most amazing helpful staff! Especially the help of the owner in advising us the spots to visit were the best. Good clean rooms, and a nice pool. The breakfast was typical Moroccan, and delicious. They even washed our car for free! If you are going to visit Ouarzazate, you should definitely stay at Dar Daif.
