Whilst I frequently rely on trip advisor reviews, I have never written a review before which in itself speaks volumes.
My route to Dar Zemora was a little unorthodox. I was taken ill during a tennis weekend in Marrakech and ended up having an emergency appendectomy (I will spare you the details). On being discharged from hospital I was unable to fly for a week and through a contact in the UK was transferred to Dar Zemora to recuperate.
And recuperate I did! I cannot recommend this place highly enough. The setting is tranquil and picturesque. An amazing authentically constructed main house with various suites set in smaller buildings within 3 acres of beautifully tended gardens. The perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the Medina (or the International hospital in my case).
Even more amazing is the service! A delightful team of staff led by Youssef who really did go above and beyond the call of duty. NO REALLY - visiting me before I was discharged from hospital (and acting as my much needed translator) collecting me from hospital and actually negotiating my discharge when there had been a mix up with my insurance company, collecting my prescription and taking me back for check ups. They also take care of the more usual holiday requirements: arranging excursions/guides/restaurants recommendations/etc. Nothing is too much trouble and I promise you I tested this more than most!
The food is also wonderful and being unable to leave the hotel during my stay, I enjoyed this to the full. Actually the only real issue was trying to avoid overdoing it on the delicious Moroccan desserts, cakes and pastries.
All in all, I was treated like a princess and amazed that a wonderful break was salvaged from what had look set to be a complete Moroccan nightmare. I can't wait to come back in more conventional circumstances and encourage you to do the same. Come with high expectations based on the reviews and I promise you they will still be exceeded.
Thank you Dar Zemora x
