We stayed here for two nights on 3rd and 4th June, 2015. Everything was of the highest standard from the greeting, the introduction to Ourika, the consideration shown us by the manager and all staff and the service we received. We would recommend it without hesitation. It is very very beautiful with superb accomodation.

I stayed at many different Riad's and hotels in Morocco. This one was my favourite. It has a cosy, charming and unique character with gorgeous little gardens and pathways, courtyards and fountains. GREAT food and hospitality. It is a peaceful little place. Not too big and not too many guests. You will feel like you are staying with family or... More

We stopped off here for lunch during our Atlas mountain trip and were very happy. Great welcome, amazing setting, pretty venue and a large traditional meal which was perfectly presented and very tasty. We had a tour round the herb garden and the rooms which were great. A lovely stop off, would recommend for a lunch or any longer stay.

Ourika Gardens would be a great base for a holiday in the mountains. The outlook is spectacular with high ridges either side of the valley. The property sprawls across the hillside, with the beautifully terraced gardens providing an interesting variation to a normal hotel. The rooms are quirky (in a good way) and the onsite facilities ideal for an extended... More

We stopped here for lunch on a private High Atlas 4x4 day excursion from Marrakesh. The staff were so welcoming and friendly and the food - Moroccan Salads, then Tagine (one of my daughters is vegetarian and with no prior notice they made her a vegetarian version), apple pie - was simple but beautifully cooked and presented. The host was... More

We came to Ourika Garden as a way to escape the chaos of Marrakech. We were given a very warm (if overly long) welcome by Karim, the manager. We were also given a free upgrade to an enormous, light filled suite. True to its name, Ourika Garden has a full time, hard working gardening staff, and they have done a... More

Don't look further: this is the place to be when you go to the mountains south of Marrakech. Rooms, garden, terras, restaurant are beautifull. Staff is friendly and helping where they can, lunch and diner good: a little paradise.

We came to Ourika garden for lunch as part of a guided tour of the high Atlas mountains. We didn't know what to expect. What we got was a delicious lunch in a perfect, peaceful location with views of the snow covered mountains. The staff were really friendly and the service amazing. The manager was so proud of this little... More

Such a beautiful hotel in a stunning location. We stayed here for dinner as part of an excursion to the atlas mountains and the food was amazing.

We stayed for couple of nights during our tour of the Atlas mountains and again on the way back from our trek in the Sahara (fabulous!). This is a real palace with great rooms that are huge, comfortable and warmed by open wood fires (or air con units if you prefer it). Fabulous views of snow capped mountains from the... More
