Le Berbere Palace

DSC_0020Le Berbere Palace is in Ouarzazate which is considered the “door way to the desert.  This hotel is about half way from Marrakesh to Rissani which is on the western edge of the Sahara Desert.

There appears to be this “palace” and a new Palace which I assume is as luxurious and enjoyable as this one. 

The lobby has an area for tea, a cute fountain, friendly and helpful staff, but more important ‘high speed wireless’.  Unfortunately I could not use wi-fi due to a hardware problem with my laptop but my trusty AT&T cell modem carried me through to the internet.  So that was the good news, the bad news was that my emailed synced and so I spent the next 3 hours dealing with that!

After catching up on email I felt like I deserved to enjoy the pool area, some sculptures that have been used in some famous (locally filmed) movie productions and some fine dining (buffet style).

My kind and generous host picked up the bill (it is wonderful to have friends in high places) and so I can’t share those details but I can share that this hotel was previously used exclusively to entertain guests of the king. 

One word of caution, with this hotel, and as with many others around the world, don’t trust their wake up calls. I carry two phones use those alarms to make me and it was just as well I did!  Apart from that minor hitch this is a great, luxurious hotel and the area is historic, interesting.
