Went here for a pool day after phoning to get the price. Was told 150dh (approx £12) for the pool which included sun lounger and towel and if you eat here they knock 30dh off the price. Decided to go, with a friend, and paid 150dh each when we arrived (as requested), the place is lovely, not a large pool... More

We spent the day here today and paid 120dh for the day by the pool. We had cocktails and Lunch (all reasonably priced). No one bothers you which is a nice change from the souk!!! The pool is large and the surroundings are lush. We spent all day here until we actually melted!

Orthentic, beautiful Riad. If it's the real taste of Marrakesh you want , then stay here! Food beautiful, service unassuming and efficient. The lovely house keeper works so hard and nothing is too much trouble ! Go for The Yasmine Suite or Royal Suite if you'd like some of your own outside space. This isn't a remodernised Riad, so don't... More

We spent 5 nights at Palais Donab and it has been one of the best holiday experiences in our lives. The Riad itself is stunning. Their staff exceptional! We arrived late in the evening after our flight has been delayed for 2 hours. Their night security guard Hamza greeted us and introduced us to the Riad. It was almost midnight... More

The restaurant requested a review on their board outside and I have to say that the meal we had was dreadful. Don't waste your money here. The lamb brochettes were tough and the creme caramel seemed to be heavy and past its best with a skin on the top. Impressive decor but little atmosphere and no ambience. Expensive for what... More

My wife and I stayed in the Royal Suite for a week and had an absolutely wonderful time. The overall Riad was relatively quiet at the time and it was truly relaxing and luxurious. The doors to the suite are gigantic and we were able to walk strait out to our own relaxing area next to the swimming pool. The... More
