“Beautiful calm oasis within walking distance of main attractions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2009

We stayed here for three nights and were extremely pleased with what we found. Bedroom was spacious with its own terrace opening out into the garden. Garden is large and well-planted with lots of cool space to sit and relax. We sampled the restaurant which though not cheap offered good value for money and, with a fire lit in the cool evenings, was very comfortable and atmospheric. Although in the far south of the medina, we found the walk up to the souks quite easy and found it better to be further away from the busier sections anyway, All staff were delightful so, all in all, thoroughly recommended and we'd stay here again if we return to Marrakech.

We have just returned from a 4 night stay at Les Jardins. The weather was perfect so we made regular use of the beautiful pool. Our room was large and very luxurious..In the late afternoon we usually retreated to the roof garden to enjoy the last of the days sun.
The restaurant was very good but wine and minibar was very expensive. Breakfast was very good ,eggs would be severed in any form on request to gether with a wide selection of Morrocan delicacies. A really quiet and luxurious retreat fron the noise and bussle of the towm. We njoyed our stay very much and would return.

You have to know that imported alcools & wines are very expensive in Morocco: the global tax regarding these products is turning around 88% (including VAT) + transportation charges. At the end, our purchasing prices is twice more expensive than in Europe with main repercution on our selling prices.

Les Jardins de la Medina is located in the southern medina (accessible by car) in a former palace. The riad (hotel) has a little bit more than 30 rooms (quite a lot for a riad as they have usually only a few rooms). Our family (with one teen) had a double room „privilège“ which we liked as it was located on the top floor with a bigger room for the adults and a very small adjacent room (without windows) for our son. The bathroom was amply dimensioned and what we liked most was the spacious terrace going to the fantastic garden. You really have to point out this wonderful green oasis with wonderful plants and many birds singing in the morning, very nice! There is also a small (outdoor) fitness room and a large swimming pool. Breakfast was good, there was a good selection of western and oriental food. As far as dinner is concerned, the menu is kept too ambitiously in my opinion. There are a lot of western dishes you wouldn’t eat in Morocco as you can’t be sure that these things (raw fish etc) agree with you. On the other hand the choice concerning Moroccan food isn’t wide.
All in all, the riad is a nice accommodation for a few days in Marrakech, but I would suggest that you have dinner elsewhere.

A delightful Riad from all aspects - bedroom/bathroom, gardens, restaurant, swimming pool and close (but not too close) to Djemaa el-Fna and historical sights in the Medina and the souks and a short taxi drive to the gardens and the New Town.

Delightful quiet hotel/riad with lovely pool area and restaurant. Roof Terrace is a peaceful and relaxing area. Staff are polite efficient, attentive and genuine. Excellent location - easily walkable to the city centre, but away from the hustle and bustle. Not cheap - Restaurant and Bar pricey compared to UK but one of the nicest hotels we've ever stayed in.

Just returned from the most relaxing 5 days at Jardins de la Medina.

It was such a hidden gem amongst the madness of Marrakech.

The service was very good on the whole however the language barrier was sometimes an issue - they mostly only understand French. So they said NO to some of our requests when they were possible. Occassionally forgot about our drinks order at the pool but we didn't mind as everything else was so perfect.

The only thing I would point out is the breakfast is not as good as it could be. They do offer eggs (found out from room service menu) however none of the staff seemed to be aware of this. We got them in the end!!

Lunch was fab.

If you're a sun lover, ask for a room with private roof terrace as pool area gets shaded by palms late afternoon.

Such charm and calming energies - and amazing pool area and gardens.
