Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I held a 5 day yoga retreat here and it was pure perfection. We had the whole place exclusively which was such a bonus. The yoga spaces were beautiful for both sunrise & sunset sessions - the Garden Shala and the Sun Terrace with views of the Atlas Mountains. The rooms were all very different and all beautiful. Our hosts were amazing - thank you Francis & Tom - I forgive you for the burst of Flanders & Swann!! And the rest of the team were so accommodating and yet quietly discreet. Food was amazing - and I was so looked after well - being a bit of a challenge as a vegan Coeliac - nothing was any trouble. And of course - the animals! Everyone loved Brian, Patsy & Eddie the dogs and Norman & Daisy the cheeky donkeys as well as the 3 cats & 10 tortoises - all adding charm & character & amusement. I won't hesitate to go back in 2024.

What can I say… AMAZING time at Fawakay Villas. Me and my partner came to Fawakay in November for a yoga retreat. We stayed in an eco hut and it was beautiful. The grounds were well kept and stunning. The staff were trustworthy and very attentive, nothing was too much effort. The food was yummy and there were always loads of options for everyone. Francis and Tom were such funny and lovely characters and really made us feel welcome and comfortable. The animals really made the place special too - they were so happy, healthy and friendly and it was nice to see they could roam around the grounds. We were lucky enough to even be able to let the tortoises out of their enclosure so they could be free too! Incredible place. Highly recommend. Hope to return one day!! Thank you so much Francis and Tom xx

The other reviews don’t lie. Fawakay villas is the most welcoming and tranquil setting, perfect for a yoga retreat. The service is so personal that you feel like extended family. The donkeys, dogs, tortoises etc add to the character. The ambiance does include calls to prayer and barking dogs from outside the perimeter. We loved it.

Wow…what can I say. Fawakay is simply amazing and surpassed all of our expectations. We found you by chance as a venue to host our retreat and what a find. Dawn and Francis were amazing from the very start. They’ve helped us so much all the way from booking until the very last moment we left. Nothing was ever too much. The ambience here, the food, the rooms and the staff (Tom & Huzna) were all incredible. We can’t wait to return.

I have just returned from a retreat for 5 days if you get the chance to go to fawakay villas don’t think about it. Just go. From the location the rooms the food the owner dawn and her amazing manager Tom it was perfection. I’m used to travelling all over the world and the service I received here was as good as anything I’ve seen. Both dawn and tom Spent quality time with our group and made us feel part of the family. nothing was to much trouble and whether we were in a fitness class having breakfast, lazing around the pool drinking the first class coffee or celebrating over dinner it was perfect and I would change nothing. A huge thank you to Lina and Victoria for organising it and for dawn and her husband congrats for having the foresight and imagination to come from the uk and build this amazing bespoke and unique resort Russell

Dawn, Francis, Tom, Huzna and all the other wonderful staff at Fawakay really have created a stunning retreat venue. The accommodation is incredible, the food delicious and the venue has the most beautiful shala and rooftop for yoga practice. Pictures just don’t capture the beautiful space and energy! 

They were also so helpful with booking taxi’s, guides, hammans and cooking classes etc. as well as accommodating specific student needs and dealing with any issues that arose promptly and efficiently. We’d love to visit again. Nina Whitespace Yoga Studio Manager

I spent a magical six days here in June and will never forget just how gorgeous and relaxing this haven is. I liked that it was tucked away from the city but close enough for a trip. I was fortunate to be in a group of 15, so we had the whole place to ourselves. Everything from the beautifully designed accommodations, super comfortable beds, lovely shower, gels, and mud scrubs, gorgeous surroundings with every nook and cranny, carefully designed, beautiful gathering spaces for our group to learn and laugh, delightful bar, on-site spa to the healthy, fresh and delicious food was exquisite. Norman and Daisy (the donkeys) and the 3 adorable pups gave us plenty of love and giggles. The villa’s team are all courteous, hardworking and lovely. Dawn and Francis are exceptional hosts, super accommodating and great to chat with. They even helped organise a surprise birthday cake for one of our group. There is an on-site gift store if you don’t want to deal with the souk and the prices are great. It was far better than I could have ever hoped for or even imagined. A part of me doesn’t want to let too many others know about this gem;-)

What an AMAZING place, an oasis of peace and tranquility set in beautiful gardens. The two swimming pools were very welcome in the heat and dining alfresco made all the more comfortable by being in the shade. There were lots of places on the site to find shade with others or to be in quiet solitude. The villas are clean, well-appointed and comfortable, the food was brilliant, and the ambiance of the whole place was very special but what made it even more wonderful was the welcome and the way Dawn, Francis and their team looked after us, nothing was too much trouble. They made us all feel like greatly welcomed friends. Everything was done to make life easy, airport transfers, Taxis and guides were organized by Dawn when we wanted to go to the Palace, the Souk and the mountains and spa treatments were available on-site and I thoroughly enjoyed every experience. The trip was a great antidote to my very busy life. I cannot recommend Fawakay Villas highly enough. Loved the rescued donkeys - Norman was a hoot!!!!

We had our wedding at Fawakay Villas in the spring of 2023 and it was an absolute dream. We had never seen it in person before coming, but with so many positive reviews of other weddings at the property, we felt totally safe and in great hands. Fawakay had multiple video calls with us during the planning process and were dedicated to making our wedding an event to remember! When we finally arrived at the venue for the weekend, we were so thrilled. It was even more beautiful than we could have imagined. "Rustic chic" is the perfect word for it. Fawakay is both a country villa and a modern haven. We loved its authentic Moroccan touches and its dedication to environmental sustainability. And all its animals! Heaven. We rented out the entire property so our close family and friends were able to stay at the villa with us for the weekend, and they were similarly blown away. Breakfast each morning at our villas was so delicious and peaceful. The pool area was chic and serene. And the food is INCREDIBLE. So fresh, so satisfying. Everyone who works here is so kind and so accommodating. And it was so easy for them to pop into Marrakech to sight-see whenever they wanted. Dawn and Francis helped us put together an amazing event. We had 80 people flying from all over the globe, and they made sure to organize transportation for everyone no matter where they were staying in Marrakech. They put together beautiful decorations, prepared amazing cocktails, and were invaluable in recommending what would make the best party! They know weddings. And ours was everything we dreamed it would be. We absolutely will return in the future to stay, eat those amazing tagines or tomato and avocado wraps, and nap by the pool. It's a hidden gem in Marrakech, that we would highly recommend to anyone, to stay, or host a party!

My week stay was amazing. The owners Dawn and Frances have created a sacred space that is no less than a Moroccan Paradise. From an on site chef, fresh flowers, to the artistic visual decor. It was a gift to the senses. The hosts became more like old friends happy to accommodate your every wish. From the time we walked off the plane until we left, we were catered too with such ease whether it was a massage, camel ride, Henna, trip to the Souk or the mountains. The grounds were perfect for our retreat, the meals phenomenal, organic juices delicious and the gardens & walkways magical . Hansa the manager and her team were sooo lovely.. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! Norman the Donkey was great too. This place is destined to be featured in a travel magazine. I Loved everything about it!!!❤️
