When we stayed here we were the only guests, so this review may not reflect what is more common, our visit was in the last few days of Ramadan and the owner informed us it was normally very quiet then.
The rooms/luxury tents are very nice, though in my mind the bathrooms could be better, to call the rooms tents is probably a little misleading, they are in fact individual chalets with a canvas roof. The location of the hotel is very isolated with no options for eating out or even going for a walk as there is nowhere to walk to.
Our real bug bear with this hotel was the lack of choice for the evening meal, especially as there was no real option for eating out without a lengthy and expensive taxi ride. During our visit the restaurant served only one dish as the evening meal, and to if you didn't like that option then you went hungry; the meal was served without any identification it was simply placed in front of you when you sat down.
I recognise that there are many positive reviews of this hotel and this was the rationale behind our booking, our contrary review is probably coloured by the fact we were the only guests and the single choice evening meal which unfortunately was also not very nice (very fatty and tough lamb tagine).
If the hotel ups its game in the restaurant offering I can see this hotel being a very pleasant sojourn from a busy working life, however I wouldn't recommend it in low season.
For info we were travelling with two kids (13 and 10), our original booking was for 3 days, we left after one day as the kids were bored stiff, and the food just wan't up to scratch.
Avoid off season- unless you want the place to yourselves.

We are very surprised, at your departure you have make complimented on everything, the tent was very nice, the food was very good, the problem was : the children were bored because there was not animation.

Our guest house is located 20 minutes from the center of Marrakech for the quiet countryside.
At that time you were not alone, there were 6 other guests.
You have not the time to enjoy the place because you arrived to 5 p.m. and you are left in the morning to 10:00.
Lots of our guests come back and recommend our hotel !
