“misleading description, unaccessable”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2011

The Riad is at least 20Km from city centre. From the paved main road, there is about 8 km of unpaved road which is so rough that even a 4x4 vehicle must go very slowly . We had to leave after spending one night. The owners do not give honest description on the website.
We also found cockroaches in the room.

We have stayed for 3 nights. Wonderfull place, but far too isolated. A quadtrail of at least 4 miles from the mainroad leads you through poor villages, streetdogs etc to the porch of the quiet and friendly place. Food was very expensive and owner was not in, unfortunately we could only read about people's experience of the warmth and hospitality of the owner. We were the only ones there and served in pyjama's. Not really expected, looking at the roomrate..

Really nice place, lovely rooms, good air con, nice pool, good shaded area. nice dogs. had a power cut for 5 scary hrs without air con and water pressure. location was in the middle of nowhere so hard to go elsewhere for food. Only one member of staff spoke (limited) english so struggled to communicate. the staff were lovely and very helpful. Lunch and tea were rather expensive and there was no menu. Im a veggie and the staff were nice and made special food for me. good games room. no tv. didnt use the spa but it looked nice.

After arriving in Marrakech we had to wait half an hour for the man to pick us up from the airport. We travelled half an hour to get to Dar Tifawine. Upon arrival, the manager of the hotel greeted us in French, we soon found that he and the rest of the staff spoke very little English and our basic GCSE level French was all we had to get through the remaining four days stay. The only other problem that we had was that there were no telephones, internet, visa connection or mobile phone coverage there. Bring cash and tell your family that you are not contactable until you go into Marrakech.

The grounds were beautiful, lush green plants and grass, a wonderful pool, lovely sun beds, some with shades for when the heat got too much. The food was also excellent. We had pastries and coffee with pancakes for breakfast. For lunch we just opted for the first course for a good value 3 euros and in the evening we had a variety of lovely soups, salads, mains etc. including a pousin with dates and lamb tagine with apricots- yum yum.
The rooms were also beautiful.

An all round very relaxing place to stay.
