We stayed at the Jnane Tamsna during the Easter holiday break. We were two adults and two children aged 9 and 6. We stayed in a garden pavilion room which had a sitting room area which we used for the children to sleep in at night. The size of the accommodation was good and you felt like you had your own apartment with space.
The hotel is a delightful find and totally quirky. It is a maze of windy pathways, which the kids enjoyed running around and through. There are many pools everyone can use but ours was particularly freezing. Really it would have been lovely if it could have been heated a little.
The staff could not have been more attentive and helpful. They put on cookery classes for the kids and acrobats and henna ladies. They also organised our trips into town with guides and also up to the Atlas Mountains, where we went for a day trip to the Kasbah Bab Ourika, which I would highly recommend. Outstanding views and an idyllic location.
Breakfast, lunch and supper are all served in one area, up outside the main pool when the weather is good, which it was. The food was good, but if you are staying a week or more then I would recommend booking some restaurants in town as the variety is not there, and you might need to break it up a bit.
If you are looking for state of the art 5 star service and facilities, then don't come here. If you are looking for something totally different and homely and lovely and very specially Moroccan, then do.
