“Tranquility from the Marrakech chaos...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

What a wonderful gem to find and stay in. We booked this via Mr&Mrs Smith and it was a great find. We had a wonderful long weekend in Marrakech but this hotel make it that bit more special and fun. While we were there we met the owner and had a few great chats with him about building the hotel and the area, which was an amazing insight. We ate at the hotel a few nights which was great after a busy day around the town. Taxis are easy to get in and out and it's well worth it to lounge around and enjoy relaxation time. Great food, service and environment.

We stayed in the Pavilion suite with our 3 teenagers. Suite doesn't do it justice as it is really the size of a small villa, the layout is great with plenty of privacy, a lovely large sitting room, lots of different outside spaces all with lovely furniture and two comfortable bedrooms.
Dar Zemora is a place with a relaxed air that just makes is so easy to relax yourself, even the more active of our family got the vibe and laid back with a book or game of chess.
The staff are lovely with good restaurant recommendations and nothing too much trouble. We particularly like the restaurant and bar at Grand Cafe de la Poste.
They serve nice breakfasts and delicious lunches which again let us just relax and lay back in the lovely surroundings.
I had a fantastic hamam and massage, the treatment room is really pretty, with lovely furnishings and log fire blazing as I had my massage with a really great masseur.

Last time we came to Marrakech we stayed at the Amanjena and frankly the suite here and the atmosphere are actually much nicer.
We stayed here about 10 years ago and really won't be leaving it another 10 to return.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay over Christmas at this small boutique hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and it was just what we needed to recuperate from the pre-christmas madness! The team here are wonderful, always smiling and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. Our only negative was the massages. We opted for a couples hamman and massage and the masseuses were chatting and giggling the entire time which made our relaxing massage just irritating. I recommend splashing out and going for one fo the suites as they are both amazing. If you book through Mr and Mrs Smith you get a rose petal bath included for free which was a lovely experience.

Room Tip: La Perla has its own terrace but the suite on the ground floor is the one to go for.....

What a magical sanctuary Dar Zemora is. After the hussle and bustle of Medina it was always a pleasure to return to tranquility. The staff could not have been more charming and helpful in every way, they could not do enough for you without being intrusive.
The weather was beautiful, clear blue skies and clarity of colour. The venings were chilly so fires were lit in the rooms and small hot water bottles placed in the bed. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. I highly rcommend Dar Zemora in every way.

Room Tip: All rooms are just delightful.

Another fabulous stay at Dar Zemora. Once you enter the gates and they close behind you, you can feel all your stresses and worries ebb away. Your greeted by their delightful staff who cannot do enough for you. We stayed in the Sahara Suite which is our favourite. The food was delicious and every meal was a delight, well done to Jamila (the chef) she never disappoints Youssef is the perfect Manager, he always knows when to be there and is full of very useful information.
Whilst its good fun to leave Dar Zemora (for a very short period of time) and explore the rest of Marrakesh it's even more exciting to get back to Dar Zemora with its peace and tranquility. Fantastic service every time, fantastic food and fantastic accommodation, Bravo to the owners!!!!

Room Tip: We loved the Sahara Suite

I and my mother spent a week in mid Dec 12 at Dar Zemora. It exceeded expectations in every way. The decor is to die for. It is incredibly classy and sophisticated. A million miles from even a 5 star hotel, in that it has been so lovingly restored with amazing precision and expense. You marvel at all the detail. The surrounding gardens are a joy to behold, and the pool is big with very comfy loungers.
The best thing though is the attention of the staff. Nothing is too much trouble. They are kindness personified. Youssef, the General Manager, is first class and so are all the staff. You just end up hugging them! We had a wonderful couple of massages there too - very professional and top notch.
In mid Dec it is low season and it was quiet but it is a great time to go as the days were hot with blue skies (20-23 degC). Gets dark at 4.30pm and you then need a fleece. But your room will be lit with a roaring fire, tea and cakes served.... Bit like being in a ski chalet.
We ate at the Dar every evening as it suited us, but it is only 15 mins by taxi to the Medina etc.
It also suited us to be outside the hurly burly of the Medina; it was much quieter, surrounded by gardens and towering palm trees, orange trees full of fruit and flowers. We would go for an evening stroll in the Palmaraie every evening.
The food was all home made, fresh produce and delicious. We both felt the menu was a bit old fashioned, but the cook Jamila was excellent.
Altogether we would highly recommend this wonderful oasis!

Room Tip: Both suites in the main house are excellent. The ground floor one is very dark though and we had to...

Not our first stay, but 5 nights at the fantastic Dar Zemora should be medically prescribed! From the moment you are driven through the gates and Youssef greets you at the steps, the madness of the world outside just melts away. We stayed in the Perla Suite which is simply beautiful with an enormous private terrace. The attentive staff are completely unobtrusive and regularly anticipate your needs with a cool drink, or ask if you would like a cup of tea or coffee - just when you are thinking that's what you would like. The food is exceptional - we ate lunch in every day and dinner in twice and sent back empty plates each time. Everything is arranged for you, you only have to ask. Cannot recommend enough - we left Dar Zemora feeling completely relaxed and refreshed.

Room Tip: All the rooms are lovely and beautifully decorated with really comfortable beds - we have stayed in...
