One of our favorite places around Aït Ben Haddou, is Riad Tamdakhte.
Why Riad Tamdakhte.
Located 5 kms. far from Aït Ben Haddou, our operations center, it is the ideal place to rest after a day of excursions and visits to the surrounding heritage. It is located on top of a hill from which you can see the town of Tamdakhte, with its old kasbah and the Ounila River valley. A quiet place to enjoy the view of the stars and silence.
It is an accommodation run by Mohamed Faska, who also owns the Riad Porte du Dades. It was built in 2015 and currently and, due to the influx of visitors, is in the process of expansion. At first, it had only 7 rooms, but it is currently being expanded to 12. However, the Riads are not large hotels, but accommodations for a few guests to ensure calm and rest.
Its rooms are decorated with typical Berber crafts and have all the necessary amenities to make your stay to your liking. Bathroom integrated in the room and air conditioning.
One of the reasons why it makes it one of our favorite places is its cuisine, consisting of dishes based on Berber cuisine. We recommend you, do not miss having a tea cup in one if the meetings rooms or having dinner in its small and cozy dining room. This, and the friendliness of their staff, will make you enjoy a very pleasant time.
Riad Tamdakhte is located on the Route of the Kasbahs. Specifically on the road between Telouet, Aït Ben Haddou and Ouarzazate. We recommend you to visit our links and not get lost on your way to the desert, visiting these places. Consult the hotel staff and they will give you the best indications for your visit.
