Great address for a weekend. Kids are free and have a green space to run. Just a perfect place to relax. Food is delicious and fresh and most of it comes from the garden. Staff is friendly and ready to help. Thank you Manzila:)

Manzil La Tortue is such a unique place. It is a totally unique mix of eco/eccentric retreat, top end food and hook up park for campers! But it works. The tents are fantastic, the smell of orange trees truly memorable, a fabulous array of home grown food and olive oil, and an ENORMOUS pool. It is a real safe haven... More

Fouad and his Mum Paula cannot do enough for those staying here and although it is 20 mins drive out of Marrakesh there is no problem getting to and from the hotel everyday with drivers and cars that Fouad calls in advance. The pool is beautiful and clean and the personnel are all lovely and friendly and ready to help... More

I was slightly nervous during the drive to Manzil La Tortue. The terrain was not what i expected and we had a marginally grumpy taxi driver, who had been waiting for us at the airpor ( we had a small delay) My husband had booked all of our accommodation and i was concerned about how rustic he likes to travel....

We can't say enough about this place. What a beautiful oasis just outside of Marrakesh. This place even though it doesn't promote itself as green and eco friendly certainly is. All the tasty food is home grown and taking care of the garden is all done with natural techniques. The owners and staff are beyond helpful and so sweet. The... More

Stayed with my family for a week. It is an exceptional tranquil place with beautiful gardens and large outdoor pool. It is pretty remote and takes about 20-30 mins to get to the Medina (centre) The staff are fantastic, friendly and provide excellent service. Fouad and Paula the owners are also supremely focused on customer care and will go out... More

Our stay at Manzil la Tortue was a pleasant experience due to the very sweet staff, nice room, best moroccan food and splendid view. The only downside was the distance to the city and public transport. Its located 12 km outside Marrakech in a place than can be difficult for the taxidrivers to find and also expensive (150 dm). Theres... More

This Maison d'Hotes located just a few km from downtown Marrakesh, is a real gem. Do not let yourself be misled by the drive: it is worthwhile! And plus, the drive (15 minutes from the airport) gives you the chance to savour the first touch of the city, the real one. Once there, you are welcomed by Paula and Fouad,... More

I was on my own and needed a short break to recharge and perhaps visit Marrakech. I was slightly trepidatious, but Fouad and his team ensured I had just the break I needed. This guesthouse is outside the walled city, set in a beautiful garden and the rooms are separated from the pool/restaurant/bar area. I lounged and read but also... More
