We decided to stay here for two nights based on TripAdvisor reviews. The owner met us in Marrakech and helped us get a taxi for the journey through the mountains to Ourika Garden (I think transport could even be provided, with enough notice). The journey is surprisingly short (under 1 hour), the difference in pace of life between Marrakech and the Ourika Valley is quite significant!
We were the only people staying at the Ourika Garden (February is low season) and the staff could not have done more to help us, including preparing great good and lighting the fireplace in the evenings (each of the four rooms has it's own living area and fire!).
A very quiet and peaceful place to stay, with a nice garden, pool and truly amazing views over snow-capped mountains. The small village of Oulmes is a short walk up the hill (and along the river) if you fancy a stroll or a tagine.
The Ourika Garden staff arranged a day trek to a nearby Berber village for us at the last minute; it was a real highlight of our week in Morocco.
I would definitely recommend staying here!
