Nous habitons le Maroc depuis quelques années et avons passé les vacances dans le Sud du pays. Nous y avons trouvé une région désertée par les touristes, vacante, ruinée. Pour l'hôtel à Ouarza, on craignait le pire. Tout était fermé, boutiques barricadées, sites déserts, dunes sans traces, chameaux absents.,.. Nous n'avions rien réservé, échaudés par ces sites qui débitent votre carte de crédit, confirment votre réservation et ne vous disent pas, mauvaise surprise, que l'établissement est fermé depuis deux semaines. Au Temple, nous étions seuls, ma femme et moi. C"était le soir d'un 31 décembre qui s'annonçait Coronasinistre. Deux messieurs "très comme-il-faut" aurait diit ma grand-mère nous ont accueillis dans les règles (thé, amuse-bouches immédiats), installés dans la meilleure suite comme les nababs que nous aimerions être, et suivis de leurs courtoises attentions. Un détail dira tout : nous avions emporté (c'était quand même le Nouvel An!) une bouteille de champagne. Ils nous l'ont gracieusement frappée à coeur, servie dans la chambre dans un seau avec son linge blanc et ont rempli les coupes selon le grand protocole. Essayez ça au Marriott ou à l'Intercon !! Sans doute ont-ils dû, un soir pareil et seulement pour un couple, réveiller le chef, réputé ici, et relancer sa cuisine. Toujours est-il que nous avons mangé un repas tout simple et extrêmement raffiné. (Briouates et côtelettes d'agneau. Je connais beaucoup d'agneaux de Sisteron à Saint-Rémy-de-Provence mais on ne m'avait pas encore fait la surprise de m'en cuire les côtelettes comme ce monsieur.) Tout le reste, oui, oui, l'hôtel est irréprochable. Au-dessus des choses mesurables en étoiles, on trouve au Temple ce genre d'hospitalité qui donne envie, non pas de revenir, mais de rester.

Check-in: arrived late and tired. We were greeted at the door with a warm welcome. We were invited to sit while the receptionist completed the registration. While we were waiting we were presented with dinner menus. We were asked to select our meal and give them a time when we wanted to eat. Now that's service. Room: The room is gorgeous. We were given an upgraded room. Each room in the hotel is based on a movie filmed in town. Our room was Kundun so the decor was designed to look like a Buddhist temple. The room was large with a sitting area, fireplace! And another small sleeping area. Would be perfect for a couple travelling with a child. The bathroom is large with a massive tub and double sinks. The room also had a balcony facing the pool. There are 2 mosques quite close to the hotel so we could clearly hear the call to prayer. A shame we were only there overnight. Restaurant: We had the restaurant to ourselves for dinner and breakfast. Dinner was ordered in advance during check in. So we sat down and were served almost immediately. We had salads to start. My husband had a Berber salad – tomatoes, onions and peppers. My mother and I had a trio of salads – beet, carrot and tomato. The salads were served in adorable mini tagines. For our main courses, my mother and I had brochettes – lamb, chicken and kofta while my husband had a chicken tagine with preserved lemons. We all had crepes suzette for dinner. Everything was delicious, the service was attentive. The ambiance in the restaurant is cozy. There are four or five tables and a fireplace. Breakfast the next morning was also good with the same attentive service. Overall Service: Service at the hotel is excellent. Check in was quick, and dinner ordered during check in was welcome after a long day. We had trouble with our room safe that was fixed promptly. At one point, my mother was having trouble locking her room. The front desk clerk heard her struggling with the key and came upstairs right away to help before even being called. After dinner, we walked around the hotel to check out the decor. It is decorated like an Egyptian temple. As we were walking around one of the staff members opened up some of the areas to show us around. Only good things to say about this place!

Lovely hotel with beautiful decor. We stayed in the Kundun suite. Wonderful room. We had great service from staff, including Jawad at the desk and Omar as waiter. The meal was very good. I am surprised by the comment of one reviewer about odors and slow staff response. We had neither such experience at all.

We spent one night at the Temple des Artes in Ouazazate. A unique and beautiful hotel inspired by the history of movies in the area and the local film studios. We stayed in the Lawrence of Arabia suite, which was spacious and beautifully decorated. The staff were wonderful and arranged our taxi to visit Ait Ben Haddou – highly recommended at sunrise or sunset for fewer crowds and spectacular photography. Due to our late arrival ad early departure we had little time to explore the hotel further, but the gardens and pool looked wonderful. We had one meal from room-service and this was freshly prepared and very tasty.

The property is beautifully decorated, laid out and furnished. The downsides to this place is that....it literally stinks. The smell comes at you inside and out, coming and going, It's basically the sewer smell you get when you're too close to it. The other downsides are that the staff, although compliant, are not very swift. Orders need to be repeated, and if they can't do something, rather than disappoint you, they'll just ignore you. One other downside, and I can only speak for the Kundun suite, is that, even though they have a separate bedroom so that 3 people can stay in the suite, there's only one bathroom. It's a definite shortcoming. The food is adequate, but nothing to brag about. It should be a little better based on the pricing for this location. One other little bomb, (sorry) is that we absolutely had to do laundry as we were out. One load cost $80 US dollars. Yes, $80(eighty). US. Dollars. Ah, travel.

Room Tip: If there are more than two, the suite we were in only had one bathroom. Problem.

Sorry that you visited us while the Management was off-duty!!! Understanding English to perfection is unfortunately difficult to add to the curriculum of a Waiter in Ouarzazate …! But we endeavor … Regarding Laundry prices, these rates are actually below the current rates in 5 Star hotels of the neighborhood (as most of us have to subcontact it to the very few laundries in Ouarzazate ( this is only a facilitation for our guests ) As for food, our Chef is at our Guests disposal, and he is very prompt to cook your favorites for you. Hope to welcome you in person on a future visit !!!!
