To start with, I guess the important thing here is to recognise that this is not a hotel. It is in fact a B&B. However, unlike a normal B&B, you have your own ensuite in your room which includes, toilet, vanity basin and shower. The room is fully air-conditioned, which is a necessity.
One important tip. Part of the offering at Villaguest includes transfers from the airport. When we arrived there was no one there to collect us and we paid a premium for a taxi to take us to our accommodation. When I queried this with Villaguest, I was told that you MUST send a specific email to them to advise specific arrival time and date. At no point was this made clear when I made the booking. So make sure this is done and a smooth arrival will be ensured.
On arrival we were greeted with the best tasting Moroccan mint tea, while we filled out their check in form.
While there, we had the run of the house, which is a largish villa with 2 large lounge rooms on the ground floor taking up most of that level. There was only one other family there during our stay so we basically had the place to ourselves.
The large pool at the back of the property was crystal clear and a pleasure to use in the 40+ degree heat.
Rooms are refreshed every day and breakfast is included in the daily tariff. While breakfast is basic it is was very filling and we enjoyed it daily.
The 2 main staff members were extremely helpful, spoke English, and went out of their way to assist. No request was too much and it felt very personalised.
Going into Marrakesh, Medina, made me extremely gratefull to be staying out of that congested part of the city. One way transport into Marrakesh was the equivalent of 5 euros per trip, using Villaguest's own vehicle.
All in all, a great stay and I would stay there again.
