Myself and my girlfriend visited here for s long weekend (4 days) and loved it. Staff are friendly and welcoming. The grounds are immaculate. The style is authentic but modern and the hotel is incredibly quiet. It is located away front the old town but the hotel has its own taxi which is very fairly priced. It seems to run... More

The Dar Shama is a bit of a mixed bag. There are some positives but overall I could not recommend it and (because we had such a wonderful time in Marraakech) whilst we will go back to Marrakech, we will not go back here. First of all, it claims to be 5 stars. Now I know that 5 stars in... More

A taxi from the airport costs around 250 dirhams and is around 20-30 minutes away from Marrakech Menara airport. You have to drive past the medina to reach the area of Palmeraie where the hotel/Riad is located. This area is around 10 minutes taxi journey from the medina- Too far to walk. It is supposed to be where celebrities stay... More

Dar Shama was really an excellent riad in the Palmeraie of Marrakesh. A beautiful garden with swimming pool, nice and quiet if you want to escape the hecticism of the crowded and vivid city.

We stayed in a standard double room with built in wardrobes and a lovely bathroom, with TV and cable, but all in German. Only English channels available was CNN international and... More

We arrived after a long hot journey as family group. Check in seemed very slow but once through the gates everyone was wowed by the gardens and the rooms which were spectacular. Then disappointment set in. Lunch by the pool took 1 hour to materialise and dinner was at best average, and very expensive. Service for everything was chaotic and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
There you find 10 rooms and suites of Villa Shama, each colorfully decorated with authentic detail, and also 4 individual suites of the Kasbah, each with their own private pool, you will not lack for anything at Dar Shama. The on-site restaurant is famous for its Moroccan cuisine, you may dine in the garden or by the pool, if that is your wish. There are two outdoor pools and as well the private pools of the Kasbah suites. Dar Shama, where natural beauty and attention to detail meet for an unforgettable experience. The kasbah, also called the house next door, displays harmony between tradition and modernity, comfort of a living room and charm of a pergola, warmth of wood and delicacy of linen. Nestled in a tranquil haven in the heart of the palm groves, away from the bustle of the city center. Dar Shama's splendid garden provides an oasis of combined luxury and authenticity. ... more   less
