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

Above expectations, The owner is very welcoming !!! which makes the all difference. Very good value for money. Definitely the best hotel we did in the South of Morocco (we went to 5 different bed and breakfast that week). Bravo to the owner!!!! My parents who were with me are definitely going back there...

we only spent a couple of days with André and Pascale, but we absolutely adored their little piece of paradise. We couldnt have wished for a more pleasant, more beautiful, or more delightful place to stay. Pascal and André made us feel very welcome, the food was to die for, the pool absolutely the most wonderful, the tents were very... More

This was my second stay at Manzil, and now under new ownership it is just as good as last year. As it was the start of the season is was very quiet (beautifully quiet), great food, great pool and cosy rooms. I was the only guest which made the service even better. I almost felt guilty when the chef was... More

We spent a day here before flying home in the evening. The approach road is an experience but worth the bumps! We were made very welcome and the owner was lovely and informative. We were given a lovely 3 course lunch, it has good clean showers and changing rooms, fantastic sun beds and a massive pool (for the brave -... More

We returned here after a year to find it under new management. The camping area still shares all the facilities with the hotel, the staff and new management are still great. But the prices have doubled!!! There are still sites, and I know, hotels, offering the same standards. Closer to Marrakesh and easier to reach.

One of the best places we have stayed at in Morocco. The rooms were decorated in a way that was uniquely Moroccan, without being tacky. The service was superb. The only warning is that the map is misleading. You need to follow the signs to find it.
