“ideal for a relaxing holiday!”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

An excellent family hotel for unwinding. Taroudant is an interesting town, but as we've visited it a few times , we were just happy to chill out! & chilly it was too for the first couple of days!
The Swiss patron & his team were exceedingly helpful & gave us superb service. We had a delightful large rustic suite with a sitting room with open fire which we needed in the evening. We were also given additional heating for the bathroom, as quite understandably there is no central heating! The gardens altho small are full of birdsong, roses & orange & olives trees which all adds to the charm of this riad. A lovely pool, but too cold for January, but the sauna & fitness room was available. A small spa too.
The food was well prepared,local & fresh, sometimes too much! We can recommend the local Meknes wines too!
A perfect spot for some winter R&R

We just spent one week at Dar Zitoune with my husband. We needed to relax and rest and we must say that it was the perfect place to stay. From the outside you wouldn't imagine what a wonderful Riad is inside but once you enter the gardens, the rooms (we had a lovely junior Suite), you are instantly happy. The team is very professional and attentive, adorable staff and management. The food is very good and the evening menu changes everyday with a great variety.
We highly recommend Riad Dar Zitoune to anyone looking for a peaceful, high quality and professional hotel in Taroudant. Bravo!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in December. Dar Zitoune is a small hotel with accommodation spread around lovely gardens. Good food, very attentive service and relaxation in a sunny environment by the pool. The owner is Swiss and was likewise very attentive and friendly. Going on 11 Dec we missed the Christmas rush and were one of the only guests for the first few days which was an added bonus. We enjoyed the sauna and hamman as well as a couple of massages. We would recommend the Dar Zitoune as a winter break and may well go back again next year.

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely

This Riad is on the main road leading out of Taroudant and from the outside is not very impressive BUT once you walk into the lobby the feel is completely different. The staff is very accommodating and sat us down in a lovely side room off the main lobby with drinks/tea and cookies to relax before checking in. Our room was a little villa that adjoined our friends' villa with a cozy living room with fireplace separating the rooms. The staff came in both nights we were there to light a fire in the fireplace to take off the chill of the evening. The furnishings in the common areas and the rooms was attractive and appropriate for a Moroccan Riad. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool area one afternoon after shopping in Taroundant in the a.m. It was completely relaxing. The breakfast and dinners at the Riad were wonderful and the wait staff was attentive and friendly. They went the extra mile to place us next to the fireplace in the dining room when they heard me exclaim that I was chilly. The food was delicious and prepared in the gourmet style - they were some of the best meals we enjoyed in Morocco. Our friends and we agreed that we could tolerate another day or two in this wonderful Riad!!! We highly recommend this property, even as a destination. Other people at the Riad had done this and did day trips around the area. What a great idea!!!

Dar Zitoune is on the outskirts of the city of Taroundant - a Kasbah style hotel.

The hotel has options of tent rooms(which looked very spacious) and chalet bungalow rooms, with 3 swimming pools in the complex and an open jacuzzi pool. With the plenty of roses and fruits in the garden, the hotel is beautiful to walk and stroll around.

The breakfast was plenty and good, and on Christmas eve the four course French dinner with complimentary cocktail was excellent. I think the gnaoua dancers/ music was only for the Christmas eve and it was a great evening.

Unfortunately, the Medina is 10 mins by car and you cannot just walk to the souks.

An excellent place to stay if you have your own vehicle.

We stayed here as part of a cycling tour through the Atlas Mountains. What a great choice by the tour company. Nothing terribly special when you drive up, but just walk in he front door for a beautiful lobby and restaurant, and then a gorgeous walk through the gardens to your room. Ours was in a group of "tents" that seemed near the back of the property, but they were a real treat. Huge, very comfortable and with a great bath and shower (important after a long day of cycling). It was November, and the pool was cold, so we didn't go in, but it looked to be well kept and clean. We did use the jacuzzi, but it was only warm (disappointed). Dinner was another very pleasant surprise. The dining room is large, well appointed and comfortable, and the meal was one of the best we had in Morocco.

Individual Chalets set in beautiful gardens. The rooms were well decorated and clean and comfortable. We received a warm welcome and the staff were friendly and always willing to help. Dinner a la carte and freshly cooked to order. Breakfast was somewhat basic with coissants, jams and cold boiled eggs.(could this be because we were with a tour group?) However this did not distract much from our enjoyable experience.
