“Great place to relax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

We wanted a place to relax in guaranteed sun after the aweful weather in UK.

What a great choice. Room was spacious, clean, comfortable and cool. Garden and pool were lovely and somehow the pool stayed refreshingly cool even though temperatures were in the 40's.

Service and food were excellent. Badia and Nazia looked after us very well and the food was better than anything we ate on our expeditions into town. Breakfast was simple continental and dinners excellent home cooked local dishes. Very nice omelettes & sandwiches available to order when a large meal is not wanted.

They organized excursions on request and it was nice (and not that expensive) to have car & driver waiting to take us back to DK when we went out in the evenings.

If transfers are not included in package I recommend you ask hotel to arrange for collection at airport. I imagine it might be difficult to explain directions to a taxi driver and it is difficult to spot where it is until you know what to look for.

There were only one or two other couple staying while we were there. As Badia & Nazia seemed to be the only full time inside staff while we were there, I imagine service might be stretched if it was fully booked.

Overall we really enjoyed Dar Kantzaro which is close enough to get into town quickly but far enough out to be extremely quiet & peaceful.

Thank you Badia & Nazia for making our stay so enjoyable.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms probably cooler in the summer as upper rooms get full sunlight all day.

My husband and I along with our wonderful friends Deb and Bill had stayed at Dar Kanzaro from April 14th till April 18th. I can't describe enough the beauty of this property and the excellent service once we had found the place. The home is about 20min from downtown Marrakech. It took us 2 extra hours of circling around the city to find this place as we couldn't get a proper address to locate it on GPS but at the end it was worth it. Once we arrived to the home at 10pm, the staff Badiaa and Jalal were very welcoming and worried about us. Once they heard we were hungry they set up a beautiful dinner table for, us even though the time was late. The rooms were large and comfortable. The place was surrounded with a grove of palm and olive trees. The garden was in full bloom with multiple colors of roses. Breakfast each morning was set up on the terrace where the sounds of birds chipping and the warmth of the sun made us feel like it was heaven. My girlfriend and I had a Moroccan hamam and massage by a lady named Saida who was great. There was also Najieh another staff member whom brother got married on the Tuesday that week and she was very excited to share with us the wedding pictures. we felt very comfortable even for us to join Badiaa in the kitchen while she was cooking Tagine. We really recommend this home to everyone hoping to enjoy the quietness, the beauty of nature and the excellent pampering from staff. I would go back to the same place now that I know how to find it.
I would alert everyone that the sign for this hotel is very small and it is hard to see off the road mostly when driving at night.

Room Tip: Rooms are on the main floor and 2 suites are on the top floor.

DarKantzaro, Owner at Dar Kantzaro, responded to this review, May 3, 2012
Dear Guests,
Thank you for sharing your opinion on your stay at Dar Kantzaro last week.
I understand that you had some difficulties to find our place and I do apologise for the inconvenience. As you may have noticed, driving in Morocco is difficult and requires special attention at all time. This is partly due to the fact that most roads outside cities here do not have official names and signs. It is the case of Route de Fès where we are located. To ad to this, the road has been recently modified and signboards as well as lightings have been removed and not replaced. In the case of Dar Kantzaro, the signboard was available at the time of your visit but its current position makes it difficult to see from the road, especially at night, I confess.

To finish with, I would like to point out that our "hard to find" location is one of our main assets as you rightly mentioned the quietness and the peacefull environment of Dar Kantzaro.

I would like to apologise again for the inconvenience and hope to see you back in Dar Kantzaro soon.

Kind regards,

Emilie

We stayed three days in April, and we had a very relaxing time. The staff are so friendly, and the food was delicious. The beds are very comfortable, and the interior design of the hotel is just beautiful. I would go there again for sure.

Having stayed at Dar Kantzaro last year with a group of girlfriends, we came back for more with our husbands! Our return visit did not disappoint! Mehdi & Emilie, the owners, were very accomodating and nothing was too much trouble. The staff were all wonderful and attentive and the food was of an exceptionally high standard. Set in lush gardens dotted with olive trees, Dar Kantzaro is truly a gem away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Superbly decorated and so comfortable we felt relaxed from day 1! Taxi's were arranged for the 20 minute journey into the Medina and the drivers were at our disposal for when we wished to return. We will definately be back and I would highly recommend for groups, couples and families.

As a group of 11 adults, with most of us on our first trip to Marrakech, I can only add to the other positive reviews of this beautiful property.

All of the bedrooms are exquisitely furnished - as a group of 11 we took over the whole place, so were able to be nosey into eachother's rooms!

The staff cannot do enough for you and the food that they are able to prepare was lovely and very plentiful - even with some seriously big appetites.

The swimming pool area is a great size and asset, especially after a hectic trip to the souks!

I cannot praise this property enough and would be more than happy to answer any questions that anyone has.

Room Tip: You wont be disappointed by any of the rooms! They are all beautiful!!!

We stayed at Dar Kantzaro after reading the other reviews on trip advisor and now want to add to the glowing reviews. The hotel is beautiful and the staff are lovely and really helpful. No one in Marrakech seems to speak much English but the staff there were the nicest and most accommodating around (but bring a french dictionary if you dont speak it) - really going out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The place is quite a bit out of town and we were nervous to get the car bill (as we used the hotel car service), but it actually worked out better and the rate was reasonable so we would use it again. Our driver was also really funny!.
We decided to have a few drinks by the pool on our last night and the staff kindly put on music and lit up the garden just for us (the other guests had departed by then) so it was really nice.
Overall it was a great stay and we would definitely recommend this to anyone - brilliant service, genuinely lovely people, clean, and it was worth being out of town for. Very relaxing!

This guest house is stunningly beautiful - furnished and decorated to a 'palicial ' standard.
Situated in a relaxing garden setting, ideal for short breaks to recharge the batteries.
Service and food is of an exceptionally high standard, with friendly, attentive but unobtrusive staff who have the uncanny knack of knowing exactly when your poolside drink needs topping up.
Ideally placed for experiencing all the sights and smells of the Medina and only a 20 minute taxi ride back to this oasis.
Ideal for couples - especially if they can leave the kids at home for a few days!.
