This Riad sprawls out into the palm desert. Although there are only 20+ rooms there are gardens, desert and plans. It is serenity plus. The entire place is well planned and the decor is artfully done. It often feels like home. The swimming pools are marvelous and there is a fine chef. I ate both nights at the hotel in... More

We stayed at the Jnane Tamsna during the Easter holiday break. We were two adults and two children aged 9 and 6. We stayed in a garden pavilion room which had a sitting room area which we used for the children to sleep in at night. The size of the accommodation was good and you felt like you had your... More

Jnane Tamsna has an old world charm and tranquility. The expansive gardens are lovely with five beautiful swimming pools and a number of accommodation options. As it was Ramadan and low season, staff was not thick on the ground but those who were there, were very helpful and attentive. We stayed in two garden rooms in the main house, which... More

We arrived for a 3 day visit to recharge our batteries. A perfectly beautiful, tranquil oasis. Gardens to explore with 5 swimming pools. Very friendly staff, nothing was too much trouble from daily laundry at no extra cost, complimentary soft drinks, to a flexible leaving time. We were welcomed and felt very at home immediately. We spent the days lazing... More

We stayed in Jnane Tamsna for 5 days following a brief 2 day stay in a Riyad in central Marrakech on the edge of the Souks (market) area. The contrast could not have been greater - the hustle and bustle and continuous motor bike traffic of the town were replaced with a quiet, serene, almost utopian area to relax in.... More

Wonderful food. Friendly staff. Very relaxing. Could not have asked for more! Just outside of the city but with more expanse than your average Rhiad. It was like staying in someone's house with a beautiful menu, perfect swimming pools and a very friendly team. Go!

The hotel was probably very nice 15 years ago. New pools have been recently added and garden is very nice, but rooms are quite disappointing, also considering the price. Smelling bathrooms are not clean, showers coinciding with toilets in tiny dumpy rooms, and rooms generaly oldish and dusty. A feeling of a glory from the past with potentiality... Staff is... More

We stayed at Jnane Tamsna for 6 nights in May. We booked this holiday at short notice; in need of sun and relaxation, but also to take a break from our crazy work schedule in London. This wonderful place offers a real escape from the typical routine of conventional holiday destinations. Described as 'home away from home' it offers much... More

We just spent a week at Jnane Tamsna and were very disappointed with the service, attitude and inefficiency of the staff and facilities. We have 3 young children and were left to our own devices on arrival, after a 12 hour trip, while our temporary room was being set up (unbeknown to us) - we were never shown around Jnane... More

We stayed at Jnane Tamsna for 5 nights in April. We were thoroughly impressed. What makes this place unique is the wonderful, personal service offered by the lovely Samira and GiGi who were exemplary in ensuring we had everything we needed and their sincerity made us feel that we were staying somewhere special. A home away from home, is how... More
