While in Marrakech, we stayed at a lovely riad down the street from Palais Donab. Although we didn't stay here, we did eat three times during our stay and enjoyed the food, wine, and atmosphere of the indoor and outdoor dining. A truly wonderful oasis in the medina that was a welcomed respite after a day haggling in the souks.... More

Finally after three times of passing we ventured through the big wooden doors to be greeted by a beautiful oasis. Sadly we were not staying but decided to make it our local go to bar for a cold drink and some peace and quiet after the souks. Lunch I decided to follow a French lady on a table near us... More

We stayed in Yasmine suite for 4 nights as it was the venue for a friend's party. The suite was spacious, with a private terrace. All the staff were friendly and helpful, with some nice extra kindness. Both the indoor and outdoor restaurants are excellent. We couldn't believe how tranquil it was. A haven of calm. The party was fabulous... More

We dropped in here for a spot of lunch after our first proper day adventuring around the maze; a welcome counterpoint to the mayhem of the souks. Obviously quite an upmarket place but pretty reasonable for lunch. A really lovely, tranquil courtyard with beautiful tiled pool surrounded by fruit trees. Has the feel of a moroccan themed european boutique hotel,... More

Nice location, clean and big room. Very friendly people and great service. Beautiful Riad with a nice traditional and affordable restaurant. The view of the Atlas mountain from the roof on a sunny day is the best i have seen in Marrakech. Would have liked a little more privacy instead of having the main door always open but there is...

A few years ago I was asked to sing at a party at Dar Donab. I was so enchanted I swore one day I would come and stay. When the occasion arose to return to Marrakech, I booked it immediately for myself and two others, but when we arrived my heart just sank. I was mortified to see the once... More

Not too far into the Medina, just 50 yds from the nearest point of access for taxis. Very smart restaurant with good food, particularly if you are a meat eater. Some vegi dishes were available. Very good and reasonable - £12 -bottles of wine available. Room had a heater which was very necessary as it turned quite cold on our... More

Impromptu family visit for dinner. Staff very welcoming. Food excellent, especially carrot and orange velouté and seafood pastille. Atmospheric room, very grand; our only criticism was that we were in the far corner near the door and so it was draughty and cold from time to time. Otherwise excellent and highly recommended.

We enjoyed lunch here so much we booked a room. We were staying in a very basic hotel so we treated ourselves to the best room (No 1). A large bedroom with a seating area and then down a flight of stairs to a large bathroom and walk in wardrobe. The bathroom is a little tired and a plumber is... More
