“very nice place away from main town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

my girlfriend and I stayed at villa guest in sept and found villa guest to be a very nice place to stay with friendly and very helpful staff, it had a lovely pool and nice seating areas to relax. the food at the villa guest was very tasty and filling, the rooms were nicely done and cleaned every day, the outside was very well looked after by the staff. the only down side was it was not a spa area. but villa guest is just a bus ride away from the town and the square which is nice or you can ask the staff nicely take you. You can also book trips at the villa, and a nice restaurant near by to eat (very nice food) ask the manager for details. James & Michelle

My wife and I stayed here 4 nights, and we're really glad we chose this place over a Riad in the Medina. It is located in the Targa area and Bus 16 goes to it from the main square downtown. The staff was very friendly and even helped us upgrade our room when we had minor problems with our first room. Villa Guest has everything that you need, but at about 35 euro less than any other place. Bus 16 goes to the main square and souks, and takes about 30 minutes. We used the bus several times, no need to rent a car. The last bus goes back to the Targa area at 22:00, so make sure you catch is from the square, or you will have to get a pricey taxi. Also, the market near the guest house has good prices. We did two different day tours and our tour company (Imzi tours) had not problem picking us up each day and dropping us off at this location.

If you want a good value, in a safe area, with a pool and a modest breakfast in the morning, I would recommend staying here. The room overlooking the pool is by far the best one.

This is a very small but perfect oasis on the outskirts of the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. Myself and 3 friends wanted a cheap week away and Villa Guest provided this. If you want luxury then this isn't the place for you. It was very cheap but provided everything we needed. A base, a bed, a shower, pool, breakfast, food in the eve if required but most of all a getaway from it all. The Villa is about 10mins from the main square, you can use the Villa transport or get the local bus. A supermarket is just around the corner and there was a fridge in our room to keep drinks and snacks cold for when we wanted them. The gardens are beautiful and the staff really friendly and helpful. We had the place to ourselves for most of the trip. I am writing this whilst still here, sat on the veranda with a cool drink, using the free wifi whilst listening to the crickets. It is basic and yes it could do with a tidy up but there is certainly a charm to it. Having been into Marakech, we are all glad we've stayed on the outskirts, you can actually enjoy some peace and quiet here! Would thoroughly recommend just be aware you get what you pay for and keep the expectations in check. I am going to tell everyone I know about this little piece of Morroccan heaven..

We only stayed here for 1 night (before flying back home). Beautiful gardens and swimming pool (kids jumped in half an hour after arriving). Decor and furnishings really nice. Rooms nice. We had a problem with air conditioning (blowing hot air - when it was 36 degrees). Staff very helpful and changed rooms for us, also arranged for us to have an early breakfast prior to our departure.
Supermarket 2 mins walk around the corner which was pretty well stocked with most things. Fruit and veg stall outside supermarket (5am-10pm daily). Great Pizza place 10 min walk from Villaguest.
We had already spent 4 days in the Medina so didn't feel the need to go into town. Just wanted to relax before heading home. Wished we could have stayed here longer and would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of Marrakech life. Great for families with kids and also for large groups.

We stayed for a week in this hotel with 2 kids. The hotel is set just outside the old town in a quiet neighbourhood. The staff is very friendly and works around the clock to make you feel welcome and at home. The beds are really good and comfortable. The shower in our room wasn't so great, too hot and then all of a sudden the water went cold. The villa itself could use some maintanence too. A good paintjob and some minor repairs would make the stay even more pleasant.
The pool is very nice. There are free sunbeds but I found them a bit uncomfortable (due to chronic backpains). The garden is very nice and secluded. A pleasant place for reading if you need a little escape from the busy city.
If it is your first stay in Marrakech, do some reading about the culture and customs of the country. Marrakech is fastly becoming a modern metropole so you can find restaurants, shops and entertainment for every budget. Besides a few large aquaparks, there isn't a lot of childfriendly entertainment, but in our case our kids enjoyed themselves everyday with cats and their kittens, found on every corner :-)
There are no hammam or spa-facilities in the villa even though the owner advertises it! You could use those situated uproad but we decided not to so I can't tell anything about it.

Villa Guest has pleasant gardens and a friendly welcome from which ever manager seems to be around at the time. January will find the B&B nearly empty. We changed rooms once as there is no ventilation for the bathrooms which are in the room you are sleeping in, causing a lot of damp atmosphere/smell. Given that it is January, the swimming pool is too cold to use, but nice to sit around for reading in the afternoon sun. There is no service for making tea or coffee anywhere in the room. The Hammam/ Spa is not working! This was such a shame as that was the one thing we were looking forward to using on a quiet evening. We used the public Hammam, which cost 12md = .90p which was great and my husband and I really enjoyed. Single sex, steam baths and a wonderful opportunity to meet some of the local ladies. Do not be put off by the scare stories of travelling on the local bus which is 4md into town. It is safe and you must be aware and confident. Day trips are very expensive. We took one as an opportunity for some photography. All it was was a driver on commission taking us to prearranged tourist traps for buying stuff. Very disappointing. The Best thing is to hire a car, 25- 40 Euro pd, buy a good map and be a relaxed and confident driver. The marrakech drivers seem reckless but they aren't, they drive at the speed limits set and overtake carts and smaller traffic, makes sense? Going where we wanted and when without anyone else trying to dictate to us for their own interest was fantastic. We stayed for a week so I became aware of a few issues: Unsafe electrics in shower area of room. Room no4 has a damaged lock and handle. Rubbish is burnt throughout the night and part of the day close to the villa, which gets into your rooms, clothes and lungs. Spa Not working. Evening meals offered overpriced. Night time in Jan cold so take extra woolies. NO SAFE in room. It states on website there is, but there is NOT. The picture of the Pool on the website is not the real one. The young men that work at the Villa on the reception are only allowed to call the deputy manager via a fax machine for anything that you might need help or advice with. This causes delays and misunderstandings. We had our expensive day trip delayed by 1.5 hours. If you decide to stay at the B&B, just use it as a base and be as independent as possible.

Room Tip: The room at the back overlooking the pool with a private veranda and views.

Pleasant gardens with lovely terrace outside Marrakech, this is a large Villa with 10 bedrooms. It is a cab ride to Marrakech but you can use the hotel's cab service ( which is sensible given that everyone seems to get lost in Marrakech so you cant assume a cab driver will know where they are going and it is at least a 10 mins drive). Breakfast basic. Beds clean but hard mattresses. Everyone charming and keen to make you welcome. We had a problem with the smell of sewage from en suite on our first night but they changed our room and it was fine. My Children very relaxed here with pool and away from hectic hustle of the centre of Marrakech. Lots of birds to watch! Staff very helpful.

Room Tip: Lovely bedroom at back of house overlooking pool had own terrace which looked lovely.
