My wife and I have just returned from Les Cinq Djellabas having spent a fantastically relaxing week. We had a few days when it rained, but that allowed us to catch up on reading/relaxing! Either I. The room or in the first floor lounge. The staff are quietly attentive and remembered what we liked each day. The small but highly professional staff attend to all aspects of running the hotel all day, seeing them feels oddly comfortable after a couple of days. The restaurant at the hotel is small, comfortable and the food of good quality, although the menu is a little limited after a week. We found the breakfast adequate to get us thrpugh to dinner but lighter lunches are also available. Each day we were brought complimentary mint tea in the late afternoon -even if the staff had to track us down in our room rather than at poolside.
The complex is small, isolated and picturesque. African huts set in part of an olive grove. Marrakech medina is a short taxi trip away and a driver-guide will be arranged by the hotel for a reasonable rate. From the terrace one can see superb views of the Atlas Mountains, again these are a short trip away.
Take note of the other posts about the trip from the airport - the road really does peter away to a white stone single track just before the hotel -but don't be concerned. The destination is an idyll. Don't come here expecting nightlife, activities and entertainment. Do come if you want a secluded, friendly, attentive, totally relaxing and scenic enclave from which to base a stay in the Marrakech area. It is just about perfect.
