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 cannot rate villa dinari highly enough.
Heather and Abdel are the most wonderful hosts. They go above and beyond to make you feel part of their extended family at the villa. They take care of everything you need, from organizing seamless airport transfer to recommending local trips. Tours are always arranged by guides Abdel has personally worked with and are therefore very experienced and trustworthy. The food is really fresh and healthy and the staff who work there are very kind and helpful. We stayed in the Shaa suite which was really comfortable and we slept really well.
What we loved most however, was the community atmosphere. Due to it's small number of rooms, you get to know the other guests and we ended up going out for several meals with new friends we met on holiday. Abdel will make excellent local recommendations for restaurants and arrange taxis. The pool are is really lovely and the small amount of gym equipment great. I went for a few runs around the roads outside and felt very safe.
An amazing stay, thankyou so much Heather and Abdel, we will definitely be back!

We had an AMAZING week at Villa Dinari in warm October with Reformer Club Retreats. Heather and Abdhel were impeccable hosts, providing lovely breakfasts, lunches and dinners al fresco in their picturesque garden with so many lovely plants and features. The grounds were a highlight, with the dawn chorus waking us up in time for meditation and yoga before breakfast. Lounging around/in the pool was a luxuory before
setting of for mini daytrips to Marrakech Souks, Majorelle Gardens, Atlas mountains, museums all within easy reach. We stayed in one of their glamping suites, a tented structure over solid walls, very pretty and comfortable. Each accomodation has their own outdoor seating area. The hamman with massage was extraordinairy. Really enjoyed the tagine cookery and breadmaking session. Great place to hang out with friends and family. So nice to combine all the above with pilates-yoga-meditation. It gives another dimension to the holiday. Kim and her team did a great job. Very rejuvenating. Doing yoga-pilates on carpets in gazebos in the beautiful garden was heaven.
Planning my return trip already.

My husband and I were at Villa Dinari for just 2 nights in January. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were pampered with amazing food, drinks and afternoon tea and cake. The owners are the most welcoming, knowledgable and flexible people. Highly recommend this beautiful gem.

This is a wonderful villa less than 20 minutes from Marrakesh airport and about the same distance from the centre of Marrakesh. The hosts Abdel and Heather are charming and extremely helpful in a relaxed yet super-professional way. I came on a business retreat, and we were looked after so well, the food is great, and the staff are really attentive and very pleasant. The pool and garden were beautifully tended and there were loads of quiet spots to sit and relax and wood fires and blankets and candles to cosily chat as the sun set. Abdel arranged guided visits to the souk and it all felt effortless and stress-free. There's an honesty bar and shop on site, and massage was good too. They host lots of retreats here and can personalise whatever is needed. Wi-fi is excellent. We've already booked to come back next year.

What a wonderful way to wind down, have fun & make new friends. This modern riad run by husband & wife team Abdel & Heather is a secret gem ( not really sure we want to share it)! It’s a haven where you can enjoy informality, beautiful surroundings, simple Moroccan cuisine & outside living at its best. Nothing is too much trouble for our hosts making it a home from home. Swimming pool, bar & afternoon tea all served in the well cultivated gardens barely needing to leave ones sunbed or the perfectly appointed outdoor pool. What more could we want and such a short flight from the UK but with wall to wall sunshine? Trips can be arranged at the drop of a hat, massages/hammams on sight & visits to the famous Medina in Marrakech. This was our 4th visit and we’ve booked again. Can’t wait to return. They also run yoga retreats for the keep fit lovers. Roll on next year. You will be delighted with the whole scene.

Villa Dinari is an absolutely gorgeous, welcoming and wonderful place to stay. Heather and Abdul have created a relaxing and restorative escape from daily life. I came to Villa Dinari on a yoga retreat. It was my first post-COVID international trip, and I want something rejuvenating after the stresses from the past few years. I could not have asked for more. The Moroccan tea was delicious, Heather's cocktails are *divine* and every day we were stuffed with the most delicious traditional foods. Day trips into Marrakesh and the surrounding area were easy to arrange, and the villa was a lovely respite from the heat and vibrant energy of such a dynamic city. Heather also has the cutest shop and designs beautiful clothes! Could not possibly have asked for more, and hope to one day return!

Villa Dinari blew my expectations out of the water. 5* venue and 5* hospitality. For me what I loved were the little details everywhere you went that made all the difference, like the beach bags in the room and the fresh flowers on arrival.

Heather, Abdul, and the staff at Villa Dinari create a warm welcome that allows for any group to have a memorable experience. I led a group to Marrakech for a Yoga Vacation, for which Heather made the planning so easy. I felt like a guest on my trip! Her team cared for my group, customizing the experience as needed. We had each meal together, prepared by the Villa Dinari staff. The team accommodated individual dietary needs in an inclusive and caring way. Abdul is connected to the best guides and places in Marrakech, allowing for a great group itinerary and fulfilling individual sight-seeing requests. The rooms are beautiful, and the grounds are gorgeous. I will definitely return!

Absolutely beautiful villa. My daughter and I had a wonderful time enjoying this spectacular space. Heather and Abdul have created a stunning retreat space. My daughter is keen return to celebrate her birthday here in this oasis. The food was sublime and I throughly enjoyed a hamam and massage (as a massage therapist) I can verify that my treatment was blissful and I left feeling very nourished. What a treat! Ushi x

Just come back from a 4 day break at Villa Dinari and another amazing holiday. This is the 2nd time me and my wife have been here and we will be back for a 3rd time, it’s just the best. From the welcome when you arrive, to the quality of food, it’s almost upsetting to leave, that’s how Heather and Abdul make you feel. Nothing is too much trouble - Naima (hopefully the spellings correct) who works there was an absolute gem, at a minutes notice she’d recommend a restaurant for an evening meal and then book it for us, suck a lovely lady. Another lady in the kitchen (didn’t get her name) was also fantastic, in fact the whole team were the best.
The first time we stayed, we were in the Dinari suite, this time we stayed in one of the Glamping suites, we loved it. We also want to thank the 2 lads who Taxi’s is everywhere (all sorted by the team at Villa Dinari), Hassan & Yassin were so polite and always on time.
Thanks to Heather, Abdul & the team, hope to see you all again soon. Kev & Val. Xx

Are there mosquitoes at this time of year please?
Answer from Corinne W
Basildon22 contributions6 helpful votes
Mosquitoes love me so much I even have a machine on in the UK most of the time. I would ALWAYS assume there were going to be mosquitoes all year round to some degree in a country such as Morocco but I am paranoid! I do know for a fact that the grounds are sprayed regularly to keep mosquitoes at bay which is a big advantage and it really does work. So generally speaking it's not too bad but it's always best to be safe rather than sorry as there's nothing worse than having irritating bites on your hols - so take some repellent and maybe a machine for your room just in case.
