“Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2011

Despite it's humble exterior, this riad is truly a hidden gem! Reasonable priced (cards not accepted) it is well situated close to the "Big Square" (<1/2mile) but far enough away so that the noise is non-exsistant (apart from the call to prayer which starts very early and can be heard clearly if your room is on the roof terrace!!)

Rooms are beautifully decorated with traditonal decore but are also simple, the bed we had was a little hard but as we were only staying for 3 nights, it did not bother us.
The rest of the riad is also beautifully decorated and welcoming.
The breakfast is included and is simple but nice.
We visited at a fairly quiet time (not many other guests) so in peak times, breakfast might be bigger and i expect the roof terrace would be open for evening meals.

The staff are friendly and not in your face, leaving you with a relaxed and welcome feeling.

There is a plunge pool available to use and they do offer spa treatments, however, I cannot comment on these as we did not use them.

The Riad organises transfers from the airport and you are collected by taxi, but don't be surprised if soon after, you find your luggage suddenly being transferred to what looks like a giant wheelbarrow, with you expected to follow on foot. The "streets" are simply too narrow for cars and the entrance to the Riad is down an alleyway so there really is no other option!

This riad, a five minute walk from the souks and main sqaure is set in a quiet location. All the staff were warm, very hospitable and very helpful. Comfortable, traditional rooms with air con and heat.as required, gets chilly at night in March. Lovely breakfast of pancakes, cake, bread, fresh juice and fruit. Would definately stay here again.

Booked this for a college group of girls and proved good choice - excellent location, friendly staff, lovely traditional building with lovely decorated rooms. Only down points - rooms on the terrace only got dribble of water for the shower and breakfast was a little disappointing with little choice. Staff, especially Anit were fantastic and helped out far more than I would have expected of them. For a truly authentic experience - seriously consider this accommodation

I don't have lots of things that I expect from a mid-priced hotel, but Les Jardines met them all - clean, friendly, secure and convenient. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, the rooms spot on, the plumbing worked (another key requirement) and the place was secure.
The only downside (which I think you'll get anywhere in Marrakesh) is the 5.30 call to prayers from the local mosque.
Definitely recommended!

Not just because it's beautifully decorated and pristine clean but it's the staff
that makes this riad so special. Amit, Mohamed, Zack and David thank you for
a great stay.

Nice central location in the middle of Marrakesh. Fabulous rooms, very welcoming staff and lovely food. We had an evening meal and also breakfast everyday, which were good quality and served in the courtyard/roof terrace.

My favourite thing was the lovely private Hammam :o) Was great for me an hubby on our honeymoon to have a scrub after a hard day of site seeing and shopping! Jumping in the pool afterwards and floating along looking at the stars wasn't bad either! Lovely place to stay, close to the main sites and the staff helped us to arrange a riding trip in the Ourika valley which was fun. The staff are mostly French and chatty, but not as friendly as some of the places run by Morrocans. They stored our bag safely for us when we dispearred off the explore the rest of the country. Would recommend - its an oasis after the bustle of the Medina.
