About Fibule du Draa Hotel
The Fibule du Draa Hotel is a small, typical kasbah-style hotel offering true Berber hospitality in this family-run favourite on the southern edge of Zagora. This is our favourite hotel in Zagora and has just benefitted from a refurbishment of its rooms as well as having true character and a very firendly welcome. Many of our desert adventures start from this hotel or pop in for lunch so we are confident you will enjoy your stay.
Accommodation: the rooms at the Fibule are located in two sections - two small annexes off the garden and a two-floor block above the restaurant; this means that half the rooms look over the garden and half over the pool. This is simple accommodation but highly recommended in terms of value for money (particularly the refurbished rooms) and the overall welcome of a small hotel. All rooms have en suite bathrooms and a/c (heating in winter), telephone, TV and mini-bar.
Facilities: a swimming pool with sun terrace, some tables and chairs for lunches and a Bedouin tent, all surrounded by the welcome shade of tall palm trees. There is the main restaurant by the pool as well as a small Moroccan dining area/lounge next to the garden, a small bar plus a friendly little "salon de the" are located around the garden area of the hotel.
Many of our desert trips are arranged through the Fibule so they are definitely the most experienced people (since 1985) to stay with if you have planned or are considering a trip into the Sahara.
"We loved the holiday, unfortunately we hit very bad weather and one part of the trip had to be abandoned, however the local agents handled it very well and made all the arrangements for a very luxurious alternative. We found all the local people, from the Riad owners to the car drivers, to be exceptional and most helpful. Riad El Zohar is a real gem and just perfect for a taste of Marrakech. We were very impressed with the whole organisation, thank you."
