“A relaxing and beautiful place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2009

Having been to Marrakech twice before we wanted to experience staying in the Palmerie away from the hustle and bustel of the Median and chose Dar Zemora - it couldn't have been more perfect. We stayed for 6 nights during the Easter holidays and had a wonderfully relaxing holiday and were beautifully looked after by the charming and helpful staff.

We booked at the last minute and so stayed in three different rooms (the staff moved everything for us so it was very easy). The suite on the top floor is fabulous - the patio is huge - large enough to have a drinks party for at least 50 people - and beautifully appointed. Breakfast on the private patio is a real treat and not to be missed. We also stayed in a small double room - quite perfect and then the pool suite - fabulous!

The food is delicious and beautifully served buy Yousef and all the team - nothing is to much trouble - and they are all so anxious to ensure that your stay is as perfect as can be.

The common areas, pool area and gardens are absolutely beautiful - this is a very special place to stay. We plan to return

We have stayed in some fabulous hotels but none have succeeded in besting the time from stress to relaxation in quite such a dramatic way - minutes rather than days! More country guest house retreat than hotel - there are no plaques to indicate reception nor numbers on doors and certainly nothing so vulgar as a minibar - undoubtedly a deliberate and welcome statement by it's English owners for whom much love and attention has been showered on this Morrocan idyll.

Although there are suites of considerable style, we did not feel that our double room was in any sense a compromise given the intimacy without crowding and excellent public spaces not to mention gorgeous gardens (or should that be grounds?).

This is a perfect location for those seeking to unwind. Situated in the Palmeraie, it is close to many outstanding restaurants and within a 200 dirham taxi ride of the Medina for those who want a little more excitement.

Service is exceptional and unobstrusive - a truly remarkable accomplishment. Valerie and staff transform this paradise by their obviously generous and natural warmth.

Can't wait to return!

What a heavenly place! Dar Zemora really is something very special and unique. From the gardens which were filled with lemon trees, the smell of orange blossom and birdsong, to the glittering pool with its super comfy sun beds with straw hats laid on each one and the endless complimentary bottled water, every little detail in this intimate hotel has been perfectly thought through. Our suite (Palm) was huge and beautifully designed, with a large living room and bedroom with French doors that opened on to our own perfectly heated pool. Beyond having so many details that make the place feel extremely luxurious, it also manages to feel informal and relaxed with such friendly and helpful staff that it felt like you were staying with (very deluxe!) friends. Every member of staff seemed to take real pride and pleasure in making sure we had a good time and we couldn't have felt better looked after (the two managers were also full of great tips from restaurants to shopping and sight seeing). The food was fantastic – fresh, varied; good value and with every element home cooked from the pancakes and jam at breakfast to the yummy afternoon mint tea and warm cake served every day at 4pm. In the evening we ate from both the Moroccan and French menus, which are served on alternate nights and by two different and equally accomplished chefs. Each meal was surprising, full of fresh flavour and delicious without being too heavy. I am 5 months pregnant and all I wished was that we had booked to stay longer than our sunny, relaxing and magical 4 night stay at Dar Zemora. I think it would be tough to find someone who didn’t come away from this hotel totally enchanted. All the delights of Marrakech are just a 10 minute taxi ride away although we ended up (like many other guests) having such a blissful time at Dar Zemora that we only did a few trips out!

Simply amazing!

Fabulous pool great for relaxing in.

Well designed and decorated throughout.

Food was delicious, well prepared and good quality. We ate breakfast lunch and dinner at Dar Zemora over 4 days and were never bored with the variety on offer which covered Morrocan/fusion and western styles.

Perfect place to spend my 30th! We stayed in a lovely riad (Le Clos des Arts) in the medina for a few days before coming to relax in La Palmerie - great contrast, sheer bliss.

The staff were absolutely fantastic.

I really want to return but sooo many places to visit in the world and not enough time!

Stay here if you ever visit Marrakech, you will not be dissapointed.

My newly-acquired much loved wife and I chose Dar Zemora for our belated honeymoon and to prematurely celebrate my 50th birthday during January of 2009. We spent a week there and left wishing we had booked a second. It is impossible to fault Dar Zemora or any aspect of the ambiance, food and service. We can't comment on the lunch because we were lazy and had late breakfasts - which even in january were taken in sunshine on the terrace and were wonderful - and then saved ourselves for dinner. We are both chefs and consequently are used to being dissapointed by much of the fare we are served on holiday. Not here though. And in fairness not on the two occasions we ventured into Marrakech for dinner. We have been fortunate to eat in some of the best (and worst) restaurants in the world, but can count on the fingers of two hands the truly memorable meals. Those at Dar Zemora fit in that category. Not because the food was michelin-starred but because we thoroughly enjoyed everything we were served - including the excellent Moroccan wines - and despite on some occasions being the only diners were made to feel like royalty in the gorgeous dining room.
We stayed in the Zahara suite which the benefit of it's terrace was wonderful. The swimming pool was opened up every day - even when there was only us there - and all the towels and shades and hats were laid out in case we wanted to be by the pool.
I could go on for ever. We can't wait to go back. 1 weekend a year at Troisgros in roanne; 2 weekends in chablis and a week in the winter and autumn at Dar Zemora and that would be our holidays taken care of.
Good luck Lindsay, Valerie, Yussef, Cheriff, Hassan and all you Dar Zemora peeps - you deserve all the success in the world.

Dar Zemora really was an oasis of calm and beauty and only 20 minutes from Marrakech and the airport. We felt totally spoilt and thoroughly indulgent throughout our stay. The food was exceptional, eating a two course for lunch and then a four course (or sometimes six!) for dinner. We enjoyed Moroccan sea bass, chicken kebabs, steak, soups and much more. Our double bedroom and bathroom were spacious and beautifully done, the bath nearly big enough to swim in. The pool and grounds were also stunning and we were often just the only people around, which was a real luxury. The staff, Youseff, Hassan and Sharif were courteous, polite and helpful and pre-empted our every need. It really felt like going on honeymoon again. A true delight and we definitely hope to return at some point soon.

My wife booked us 3 nights at the Da Zemora. I have stayed at many top hotels in the world, however this is different. It is so peaceful and relaxing it really does feel like heavan. All the rooms are stunning and the staff and service is exceptional. I intend to go back every year to visit. It is one of those places that you have to go to understand!
