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

I first stumbled upon this place whilst lost. (Nothing new there) decided to have lunch and spend a little time enjoying the tranquility before heading out into the heat of the day. From what I have seen my mind is already made up to stay here on my next Moroccan visit

If there are truly over 400 better places to stay in Marrakech, then it must have the highest standard of accommodation of anywhere in the world. Palais Donab was simply excellent. We stayed in the smallest room which was very spacious, a bed of the highest comfort levels, and well appointed facilities. It also had the sun til late in... More

We've had last april a 4 nightstay at Dar Donab. The place is very quiet and a real old worldcharm palace,only a few minutes from Djem al Fna. The whole location,the restaurant, the patio, with lovely pool, and terraces full of plants and trees,is a really 1001 nightdream! The room was very comfy and cozy. The breakfast high quality, and...

This was a special occasion for my mum's birthday so we wanted to stay somewhere a little bit different. We have been to Marrakesh before and we preferred to stay in a Riad rather than one of the typical hotel chains since riads are usually located in the old Medina part of Marrakesh and within walking distance of most of...
