what a gorgeous hotel! The decor was absolutely stunning. The pool was refreshing, the rooms were beautifully decorated, clean, and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and we had a wonderful time!

All the bedrooms here are themed for locally made movies, but the overall impression is of faded art deco. Our de luxe room was comfortable and clean, with illuminated stained glass panels set in the wall. It was a little noisy at night with dogs barking. Everything worked, including the wifi. However, there is a bath tub and a handheld shower head but, oddly, no shower screen and nowhere to hang the shower head. This makes showering hard work.

The two men running the hotel, who seem to do everything, were friendly and helpful. The hotel is a 25 minute walk from a small medina in the town centre. This medina is very different from Marrakech, with the traders being not at all pushy. We found some good restaurants for lunch in the town centre.

The hotel gardens are pretty and have sunloungers and umbrellas. The hotel has a large free-form pool, which was not heated and far too cold to swim in April. However, it does have a hammam, which you can use by yourself. Give the staff three hours notice to switch it on and it is a perfect temperature for relaxing and enjoying the traditions. Cover yourselves with the black soapy paste provided, use the exfoliation mittens to scrub the soap off then throw buckets of endless warm (or hot if you like) water over each other. Not for the reserved or faint-hearted, but a really different experience that you can tailor as you like.

Dinner and breakfast were both good at this hotel, albeit with a limited menu. Service was speedy and reasonably priced wine was available.

Thank you Sir for your comments.
April was a hectic month and being fully booked almost everyday. I take good note of your comments and will certainly remediate the points raised by you for a future visit of yours.

The hotel is quiet, clean and comfortable. The staff is very polite and gives attention to every detail in order to make your stay pleasant and with no concerns. The food is delicious and it is with it to dinner in the hotel instead of in a restaurant in the city. The swimming pool area is a great place to rest and have your morning breakfast. It is probably the best place in Ouarzazate.

Dear Madam,
Thank you so much for your nice comments.
I will definitely share them with my entire staff.
You are right : it is a true oasis of comfort and happiness at the doors of the Moroccan desert.

Please do not hesitate to share this opinion with your friends, they will be duly treated as Stars (movies)

Looking forward to welcoming you again, here.
All the best!
Albert

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Temple des Arts to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary and I could not have wished to stay anywhere else. My husband was actually partaking in Marathon des Sable so I arrived on my own on a very late flight from London. I was greeted so warmly and not made to feel even the slightest bit of an inconvenience arriving at 1.30am.

Everyone at the hotel was extremely warm and friendly and could not have made us feel more relaxed or welcome. There were times we felt like the only people there, it was simply paradise.

Nothing was ever too much trouble, accommodating our every request from organising transport, arranging massages to making us lunch. Every meal we had was delicious from breakfast through to dinner. Our room was wonderfully appointed, spacious and airy and the wifi was fantastic.

We could not speak more highly of Hotel Temple des Arts and would absolutely recommend to anyone going to Ouarzazate and hopefully we will be back for future wedding anniversaries.

Very beautifully decorated luxury guest house. All rooms were themed. Very warm welcome. The owner (Mr Albert) personally received us and ensured that our stay was very comfortable.

Highly recommended.

Dear Deepam,
It has truly been a great pleasure to have both of you in Ouarzazate.
Next time save a dinner for us and you will experience an extraordinary fusion of Great cuisines of the World: Indian & Moroccan, which I will cook myself for you.

I do look forward to having you back, here, soon.

All the best!!
Albert
