Reviewed 1 January 2009

Booked a late deal via Flight Centre,The operator was Cadogan .
Dar Kantzaro is down a dirt track off the main road about 15-20 mins south of Marrakech. The owner uses a particular company who will take you everywhere in Mercedes or Mpv for larger groups. On entering the Riads grounds via 2 very ornate gates and driven down a tree lined drive to be met by the owner and his staff,you sense you are in for a wonderful stay. There was no formalities of having to check in you were immediately made to feel at home. After unpacking, Ibrahim the house manager gave us a tour round the immaculate gardens which house the superb pool and then showed us round all the individually designed rooms we were then served mint tea on the terrace over looked by the snow capped Atlas mountains. All the staff were very attentive, the chef provided endless amounts of traditional mouthwatering food and all rooms were serviced and maintained to the highest standard. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for any member of staff and their personnal service was second to non. The accomodation was far enough away to provide a tranquil setting , but close enough to Marrakech as to not feel isolated .If you are looking for a peaceful break in superb surroundings at the gateway to the Atlas this is the place.

We have recently returned from a week in Marrakech, staying at Dar Kantzaro. We discovered a wonderful calm and elegant oasis - a retreat found only a short drive from the bustle of central Marrakech, where we were pampered by the staff and charming owner Mehdi. Brahim our wonderful butler was forever attentive and intuitive to our needs and the enjoyment of our holiday. We arrived as tourists and left as friends and we would like to re-visit one day - Inshallah - you captured our hearts.

The following is the letter we wrote to the hotelier:

Hi Mehdi

We enjoyed our stay with you very much. Everything was excellent, especially the service and Brahim's charming manner. The special quality of graciousness and generosity that you provided - upgrading our room, giving us a bottle of champagne - and your habit of checking in with us every now and then to make sure we're ok, added the extra touches that beautified our time in Marrakech even more. Our stay could only have been improved by our room - including the bathroom - being a little warmer, and the mattress on the bed being a little softer (this is a personal thing). If the swimming pool had been heated, we would have never moved out.

We wish you great success with Dar Kantzaro, and will visit you if we come to Marrakech again.

With best wishes, Bevis and Christine.

Stayed December 2008

My wife and I stayed at the Dar Kantzaro for 5 days this month and had a very good holiday. The staff looked after us extremely well and are true hospitality professionals. The property is within a pristine garden and is very peaceful.

The cuisine was very good and meals were prepared exactly as we had requested.

We would recommend this property to anyone in search of a restful break.

Our family recently returned from a wonderful week at Dar Kantzaro. The house and property are beautiful and the staff were always warm and helpful. The food was outstanding -- we were able to create our own custom lunch and dinner menus that satisfied both parents and children alike.

We also received excellent assistance for restaurant reservations, shopping and other activities around Marrakech.

Dar Kantzaro is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy all that Marrakech has to offer.

We have stayed at many villas around the world and highly recommend Dar Kantzaro.
