    El Malara

    Located above a mountain valley, expat French owners Bernardette and Jean have crafted a beautiful Moroccan guesthouse with six stylish rooms. Shared public spaces include a salon, lounge, pool and bar, and a fine attention to detail and traditional decor flows throughout the property. Rooms here represent excellent value. El Malara is located around 15km from Tafraoute down a piste road via the Painted Rocks, best visited with your own transport.

    Hôtel Salama

    Neat as a pin, the good-sized rooms at the Salama are the best value in Tafraoute. Doubles feature balconies overlooking the sweet square and cafe below; every room has TV and air-con, as well as comfy chairs and a writing desk. Communal spaces include a comfortable atrium and a massive roof terrace with great views of the rock formations beyond the town.

    Hôtel Les Amandiers

    This hilltop pile has slightly tired rooms with small balconies taking in incredible views of the rock formations ringing Tafraoute. The pool and restaurant share the views, but the bar is tucked away inside without any views. You may have the place to yourself, which will be either nice or creepy depending on how recently you've seen The Shining.

    Auberge Les Amis

    Overlooking Place Moulay Rachid, Les Amis has nine rooms across three floors and a welcoming team at reception eager to help you however they can. Good English is spoken, and rooms are tidy with big windows. There's a cute terrace overlooking the street action below. Breakfast is Dh20.

    Les Rochers Peints

    Staff here seem perpetually perplexed, but patience yields fruit at this ultra-chilled hotel on the edge of town. Rooms are small but clean, and bathrooms are new. Stained-glass windows throughout give things an ecclesiastical vibe, and there are some cool vintage posters. No English is spoken, or French for that matter (at least when we dropped by). Breakfast is Dh30.

    Maison Tigmi Ozro

    Just up the road from central Tafraoute, this is a homely option: the bloc of rooms is just across the courtyard from the family home of the English-speaking host. The courtyard features fig and pomegranate trees, and there's a nice roof terrace, but the rooms themselves are lightless and a little shabby. It's a welcoming place, but a bit disorganised.
