We recently stayed here after a couple of days in a riad in the Marrakech medina. It was a nice change from the confusing maze of streets in the old city and was very quiet.
The hotel is located in the most beautiful garden, lush with plants, palm trees and flowers. There is a large pool, aviaries with many kinds of birds, lots of pathways for walking and benches for reflecting on the beautiful surroundings.
We stayed in a large suite which had a separate bedroom and living area. The hotel is an old house built in traditional Moroccan style. It is full of antiques, mosaic tiles and feels authentically ethnic.
As the house is many years old, don't expect it to be perfect. A family once lived here before it was made into a hotel and it has a family feel to it. We enjoyed the ambiance.
The service at the hotel was excellent and the staff are very attentive to anything you need. They also offer a free shuttle service into town as the hotel is located about 15 minutes away.
The only drawback with this hotel was that the menu is a bit limited. So if you are staying here several days, you get tired of the same food. However, this is easily solved by going into Marrakech for dinner. In addition, the kitchen staff gladly made up items for us that were off the menu.
The owner, Stephane is friendly and charming. You won't regret staying here!
