I recently celebrated my 70th birthday and wanted a break in the sun. I don't like busy places and scrawled through the internet and found this place in Marrakech, which turned out to be some 17 kms south west of the main city called Dar Gonzo!
I booked and was met on arrival at the airport by the host, a charming man called Dino. We drove from the airport, a mere 15 minute ride and turned down this dusty track which led to big iron gates! Upon opening I was met with a wonderful sight of Hibiscus hedging and many many trees. Dino showed me to my suite which had a nice lounging area and a raised double bed, with an area for making coffee etc and a decent shower room. This was large with detailed tiling, so nice to be able to move in a shower!
In the morning I was given a lovely breakfast in a dining area next to a deep blue pool. After breakfast Dino explained that my suite was the first on his property to be let out, there being 3 further suites to be let out, one being a 2 bedroom one and another a luxurious one in the process of being refurbished.
The grounds were wonderful with olive trees, orange trees and pomegranate trees everywhere. Included in the room price was the use of the pool and the new tennis court (not for me but ideal for someone younger and fitter!) There is a Boules court and a Ping Pong table. If I wanted to have a Massage, Turkish bath, Hamman, Sauna, or Jacuzzi then they are extra. I was content to laze and enjoy the sun, read my book and swim!
It turned out I was the first guest but I understand they have other bookings already. I will go back!!
