We stayed at Jnane Tamsna for 5 nights in April. We were thoroughly impressed.
What makes this place unique is the wonderful, personal service offered by the lovely Samira and GiGi who were exemplary in ensuring we had everything we needed and their sincerity made us feel that we were staying somewhere special. A home away from home, is how Jnane is marketed and they come pretty close to achieving that.
The property offers a real escape from the madness of the medina. We particularly enjoyed breakfast in the garden listening to nothing but the sound of birds and watching the kids search for wild tortoises in the gardens. The croissants were excellent, by the way.
It is not quite perfect: service at mealtimes is often too slow and some requests fall by the wayside, but actually, this was never a real problem.
The main negative is the expense of taxis from the Palmeraie- it really adds up and this was our biggest expense during our stay. Eur30 for a 10min journey to and from a restaurant in the Palmeraie is not insignificant over the duration of 6 days.
I strongly recommend a visit, if not a night's stay at the breathtakingly beautiful Kasbah Bab Ourika in the Atlas Mountains, an hour's drive from the Medina. The stupendous view of the snow capped mountains had me lost for words...
We felt truly refreshed when I returned from Jnane Tamsna and we took home some perfect memories. We travel extensively and rarely return to the same place twice, but I would return to Jnane without hesitation.
