"Ouarzazate Practicalities" Top 5 Page for this destination Ouarzazate Favorite Tip by amsterdam_vallon

Ouarzazate General: 4 reviews and 4 photos

Favorite thing: HOTELS AND ALTERNATIVES
Ouarzazate has plenty of hotels, covering all price ranges. And even better, this must be the one place in Morocco where booking ahead is completely unnecessary. There is an disproportionate number of top-end hotels here, but while these never are full, they seldom cut their prices.
During the winter season, remember to ask for extra blankets, as temperatures fall quickly after sunset.

RESTAURANTS AND ALTERNATIVES
Outside the hotels, Ouarzazate offers little in terms of restaurants, and what there is is quite uninspired. For anyone who have already discovered how great Moroccan fast food can be, look out for food stalls in the town market.

SPORTS AND ACTIVITIES
Ouarzazate has a public swimming pool which summer tourists will have good use from. In Ouarzazate you can also hire bikes, such as mountain bikes.

NIGHTLIFE
If there are enough tourists in Ouarzazate some of the better hotels can offer some night life. If there are too few, all that is offered are drinks in the bar.

CHANGE MONEY
All necessary banks, most better hotels change money too.

TRANSPORT
Excellent connections with every possible destination with either bus or taxi. Ouarzazate has also an airport, which has flights (2-3 per week) for Agadir, Casablanca, Marrakech as well as Paris in France.
