We spent a lovely week at Le Jardin des Douars. We enjoyed the quality of the services, the kindness of the people, the quality of the food and the spa. The "quiet" swimming pool is just perfect to rest and to swim kilometers. The city is easily accessible by car and worth to visit as well as the beach and... More

Stayed for a week at Le Jardin des Douars largely relying on the favourable reviews from others on Tripadvisor. Coming from England we flew to Marrakech and took at taxi to the hotel which cost about £50. I think you can fly direct from Paris which on reflection might have been preferable and possibly cheaper. The hotel itself is in... More

We stayed here for two night in July 2014. It was nowhere near long enough. This place is fabulous from start to finish. The building is exquisite, as are the pools and the bedrooms. The drinks on the terrace at sun set are a real highlight. We sampled all many of the dishes on the menu and couldn't fault any... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed last week and it was great. They helped us organise everything we wanted to do outside of the hotel. The food at the hotel was delicious and really varied - not just tagines - and the room was gorgeous clean and air conned! The shower gel they provided also smelt amazing.

We stayed at Jardin des Douars for two nights during a weeklong trip to Morocco. It was a great place to enjoy the Moroccan coast. It is about a 15-minute (or less) drive to Essaouira, which makes it an easy base from which to explore the town. But it's far enough away to be a large property with beautiful gardens... More

We stayed 4 nights and loved it. We flew into Marrakech and hired a car, which I would definitely recommend: it's not absolutely essential, but it makes getting around so much easier; it's also cheaper than a taxi or transfer, and a dead easy drive pretty much on one road tr whole way. After the inevitable stress and hassle of... More

We were there for a wedding in May. This place is simply amazing. It's like an oasis of flowers and water nestled in the middle of the desert. The outside terrace where you can leisurely sip cocktails or have dinner is basking in a beautiful light in the late afternoon. I could have stayed there for hours. Very nice pool... More

A lovely resort - very beautiful gardens. And a spa pool for the adults and a family pool for playing. At no point, were we on top of other guests. A full day was enjoyed each day without noticing that the time had gone by. The double room had an adjoining bunk bed room for children, with a shower room.... More
