Just came back from staying here for three days for mine and my wife's minimoon ( a brief honeymoon if you can't do the real thing straitgh away!). It's an amazing place - it feels more like you are staying at a friends villa than a hotel. There no signs around and other visual pollution you get in a lot of hotels and for me that makes for a much more pleasant environment. You get welcomed by the owner who explains the history of the house. The gardens are truly something special - there are many different varieties of plants to enjoy and then on top of that there are aviaries, pathways, courtyards. It makes for a great setting for the hotel and is good fun because when you are bored of the pool you can go for a wander and get lost in the gardens. Our room was out of this world - huge, really interesting decor, a hot tub - you get the picture!
Last time I came to Marrakech I stayed in a Riad in the city. It was nice, but for me this place is infinitely better. You get a free shuttle service into the city anyway and none of the noise and hassle + gardens wander about in. We actually left the hotel once in our whole stay - chilling by the pool, eating and enjoying the house was just too relaxing.
We will be going back!
