The superfriendly people made us feel at home straight from the beginning. The food with homegrown vegetables, so carefully built houses and the lovely arranged garden all added up to an unforgettable stay. We loved the feeling to support the sustainable development of the local community with our stay here. For us and our kids this was the discovery of...

Like others after the grueling journey from marrakech, one night with nicholas and his family turned into three. Calm, good food, games for children, generous breakfast, charming staff, lovely pool in beautiful grounds made it all very difficult to leave. The best aspect was the space so no-one ever felt crowded in the slightest, both with the accommodation and the...

Even just a night in the Sawadi riad and you start to relax. The French family who own and run it are incredibly welcoming. They employee local staff for the gardens, cleaning and waiting in the restaurant. The rooms are nicely appointed with a Moroccan feel, of course, and the bathrooms are simple with homemade soap. Don't expect a power...

We spent two nights here in December with our three children. This was one of the highlights of our two week stay in Morocco - Sawadi was a fantastic choice and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Despite being winter and cold at night, the rooms were warm. They are beautiful from the outside and very nicely decorated inside...

We spent the night at Sawadi as part of an Untravelled Paths tour to the Sahara desert. The organisation of this tour company was extremely good but your days are long as the distances are vast.

We had such a wonderful stay at Sawadi. This is an amazing eco-friendly little establishment that's completely self-sustainable. Everything we ate was from the property. The jam, the juice, the meat, the vegetables it was all delicious organic produce. The owners were extremely friendly who took us for a tour of the property to show us how the farm side...
