We just returned from a short (April 3 - April 11, 2014) holiday in Marrakech and had chosen "Le Diamant de Zaraba" based on the recommendation of friends living in Marrakech.
This guest house is 13 km south of Marrakech on the Route de l'Ourika and can be reached via a small paved road off the main route that runs along a water channel ("zaraba"). This made for an extremely comfortable and peaceful location surrounded by olive groves, yet it only took us 20 minutes drive to get into the middle of Marrakech.
The location is also perfect for relaxation and includes a refreshing swimming pool set among olive trees and a well kept lawn. Additional facilities include a fitness room, sauna and Moroccan Hammam (steam bath).
Rooms were very comfortable and all individually Moroccan-themed, which was a welcome change from the hotel chains that I usually stay in during my overseas trips. Rooms have two or three beds and as we travelled with our 13-year old daughter we took a small suite that had an additional bedroom with in-suite shower/lavatory.
We usually left for our excursions after a late breakfast on the covered patio and staff was always more than happy to serve us breakfast at 10:30 am or even later. As a sign of gratitude for our friends, we had asked the resident chef to prepare one evening a 6-course Moroccan meal for our group of seven, which proved one of the culinary highlights of this trip.
In short, all three of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Diamant de Zaraba and look forward to an opportunity to return.
