The guest house looks far better in the pictures than in reality. I liked the garden and the pool area...and that's it.... The room (Ayoub) I got was small and overlooking the wall - it was dark all day long and th lights had to be on all the time. The bathroom was also small. Water was very boiling HOT... More

We had our marriage here. The day before, the director of the hotel got into an argument with one of the invitees and wanted to cancel the marriage. I tried to arrange the thing and they did the minimum. They tried to profit a maximum from everything and we did not feel well attended. They have no sense of who... More

I hate to give bad reviews, but this place has, to a large extent, lost its way. It was clearly designed and set up to cater for a small number of guests in luxury surroundings. However, standards have slipped and the lack of front-of-house staff makes it more like staying in a remote villa than somewhere with hotel amenities. Nice... More

On a website it was listed as a recommended restaurant in Marrakech, for a romantic dinner. It is way out of the Medina, vut we didn't see that as an issue. When we arrived, the table wasn't set & it took about 20mins for a waiter to set it when I asked for it. Meanwhile, we had the chance to... More

set in the Palmeiria, in sumptuous surroundings, its like a sultans palace, with 2 pools, in beautiful gardens. but it thinks (and charges) like a 5 star joint yet fails on small details. little things, like they provide one small plastic bottle of shampoo in a suite for 4. people. luxury bathroom, but far-from-fluffy towels. our bed was so near...

Once you lose the 4* expectations, Dar Shama is lovely. When we stayed in December it was empty - we were the only guests and that was pretty special. The service was amazing and the people who worked there very thoughtful and considerate and super kind to my daughter aged 22 months. This guest house is pretty well isolated but... More

We spent one night in Dar Shama in a beautiful room with plenty of room in an exotic garden full of birdsong, with 2 bright blue swimming pools and we were waited upon like royalty and treated like friends at the same time. It's outside the main city so we were taxi-ed in and out of town, and it was... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
There you find 10 rooms and suites of Villa Shama, each colorfully decorated with authentic detail, and also 4 individual suites of the Kasbah, each with their own private pool, you will not lack for anything at Dar Shama. The on-site restaurant is famous for its Moroccan cuisine, you may dine in the garden or by the pool, if that is your wish. There are two outdoor pools and as well the private pools of the Kasbah suites. Dar Shama, where natural beauty and attention to detail meet for an unforgettable experience. The kasbah, also called the house next door, displays harmony between tradition and modernity, comfort of a living room and charm of a pergola, warmth of wood and delicacy of linen. Nestled in a tranquil haven in the heart of the palm groves, away from the bustle of the city center. Dar Shama's splendid garden provides an oasis of combined luxury and authenticity. ... more   less
