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

The Palais Donab was the perfect choice for our honeymoon. On arriving we were greeted by the wonderfully helpful receptionist and in our room were provided with some complementary cava. The room itself was fantastic, beautifully decorated, spacious and clean. In the evening we sat by the pool and ate the fantastic food, serenaded by traditional music.it felt like a... More

We wanted to stay in a hotel with truly Moroccan decor inside and out, and Palais Donab was just perfect. The decor in rooms and in public areas is stunning, and having breakfast in a delightful garden to the sound of birds singing was an unforgettable treat. The staff were exceptional: unobtrusive but always willing to help.

We were looking for a peaceful small retreat but close to all of Marrakesh’s delights and we were not disappointed at all. As soon as you go into the reception its very calming straight away, all the staff were fabulous and very helpful. We stayed in the Yasmine Suite which is on the second floor and overlooks the pool and... More

We booked the Royal Suite at the Palais Donab for two nights as we wanted to spoil ourselves. How wrong we were! The room was huge but was positioned on the ground floor - our bedroom window overlooked the door to the hotel toilet. In the room the electrics didn't work (exposed wiring in places), rugs and sofas were filthy... More

We have stayed in marrakech previously in other similarly priced accomodation . As we have seen so much of the city it was more important to have somewhere to sunbathe in peace and with a pool. We had visited here before to eat as well as jardins de la koutobia. This palais is far superior to jardins in that it... More
