Les Jardins de la Medina

Reviewed 27 March 2012

Not a hotel but a Riad - a walled house within the old town Medina. what a contrast entering this Garden of Eden coming in from the narrow streets and busy life...

Spacious room, a good restaurant, swimming pool, shadowm palms - and very well maintained. even a little shop inside.

We stayed for a week and enjoyed the Riad, the service and theirs facilities...

We stayed at Les Jardins for 3 nights and had an excellent experience. Like most hotels in Marrakech, it doesn't look like much from the outside, but Les Jardins is magnificent once you step inside. The hotel is built around a large interior courtyard consisting of a large pool, a restaurant with patio seating, and a garden. The rooms are spacious and extraordinarily well-appointed, the food was terrific, and the staff was friendly and helpful.

The main thing you notice about Les Jardins is how open it is. The other riads we saw in the medina tended to be very dark and claustrophobic. Les Jardins is the opposite. Being a tourist in Marrakech wears you out during the day - it's hot, confusing, people are constantly trying to hustle you for money, and you get lost every five minutes. It was great to have somewhere so relaxing to come home to. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Les Jardines provides a haven away from the general chaos of the Marrakech medina. The gardens are delightful and the swimming pool heated. Scattered throughout the hotel and gardens are bijou seating areas, so even after staying for 3 days there was not sufficient time to discover all the quiet semi secluded spots.
Our room was delightful; large, well proportioned with a separate seating area and small balcony overlooking the gardens. We were over the hamman downstairs, which perhaps explains why there seemed to be under-floor heating?
Our double bed was large, comfortable and had a mountains of pillows (a must for me), while the bathroom was small, but stylish.
Room maid service in particular was very good, coming at least twice a day and departing leaving a shower of rose petals.
We were particularly impressed with the early morning tea service, which was quick and free. This is so much appreciated when hotels often charge an silly amount for this core service (the Cirankan Palace in Istanbul once charged us US$23 for two tea bags and hot water ~ I still have the bill).
The breakfast buffet is good quality and is served overlooking the gardens, we also enjoyed the popular restaurant for dinner (reviewed elsewhere). Good food at a reasonable price.
The big downside of Les Jardines is the location which is in the extreme SW of the Medina. While close to the palaces and the royal tombs, it is still a hike and the main attractions of Marrakech are definitely a taxi ride away unless you like walking and that is not practical in the warmer weather. The narrow streets mean that vehicle access can be slow at times.
Good quality, free wifi

Room Tip: Each room is different, so I suggest that you ask to see a selection ~ the staff will oblige.

We came for lunch at Les Jardins de la Medina whilst in Marrakech. A colleague had stayed at the hotel and had highly recommended the establishment. We sat outside by the poor area which is just gorgeous and so peaceful! The menu is french but the waitress translated everything on the menu for us which was very handy as I'm pretty clueless with French. The food was fantastic (I had the tagine de poulet aux oignons et amandes sucrees, which was just delicious!!!); the service was fantastic, the staff were very attentive and even from just having lunch we were pretty jealous that we weren't hotel guests too. It was such a gorgeous place, in a quiet street (which is very uncommon in Marrakech) but just five minutes from the Tombs. If I go back to Marrakech I would definitely stay here!!

This was our first trip to Marrakesh, and the hotel Jardins de la Medina is a good reason to come back. It may not be the absolutely 'authentic' environment some people may be looking for, but it is indeed a high quality hotel with excellent service, and the ambience is genuine enough for a first-time visitor. People that are rating this hotel lower than excellent are of course entitled to do so, but it may be that it is a rating against expectations rather than a objective assessment of the hotels qualities (I experience this quite frequently when reading reviews in Tripadvisor by the way).

Good sized heated pool (the heating certainly not needed in summer, but very much so in February), good breakfast and dinner. A nice touch was the Manager's apero, which was provided free of charge as a social event one evening (appeared to be a regular thing).

Room Tip: Room 135 is a very comfortable "Privilege "Sultana" bedroom" well worth the slig...

What a wonderful getaway.. After just a short flight from the UK. We arrive to sunshine and a friendly driver awaits to take us to the hotel. First impressions don't disappoint. Staff are exceptionally helpful and friendly. We are whisked away by Youssef to enjoy mint tea to a court yard situated by a fountain surrounded by orange trees. After explaining where everything is in the hotel he then goes on to tell us what are the best places to see in Marrakech.
A back scrub and hammam follows in the Spa - bliss after our travelling ! The Spa is completely amazing high ceilings and fabulous features that wouldn't be out of place in a high end spot in Central London.

The hotel suite is also luxurious, with lots of extra little touches thrown in. I was very pleasantly surprised.

Overall this was a wonderful weekend away.. the staff went out of their way to make us welcome. Especially Youssef and Jamal. Thank you so much. We hope to see you again some day.
Charlotte and Suzanne.
