We did not stay here - only had dinner -but the public areas and the pool looked lovely. Service was excellent and we were made to feel very welcome, even though we were not staying there, and the food good. Location is excellent.

Really great place from which to explore the frenetic medina. Some of the best food we had in Morocco . Great Service. Very relaxing after the hustle and bustle of Marrakech . Only 6 rooms means that it feels very spacious. Just Fabulous, would come back to Marrakech just to chill out here without setting foot outside!

The Palais dar Donab is a beautiful spot in the heart of the medina. Whilst only a few mins stroll from the Place Jemaa el F'na, it is quiet and very peaceful - and the perfect place to chill out whilst enjoying beautiful food and drink. The hotel is larger than the average Riad but this is a huge advantage...

We have been there yesterday for dinner and had one of our best dinners in Marrakech. Goo food, very good service (even if we arrived very late they still served us food) and nice ambience near to the pool with relaxing chill-out music. Nice deco inside the ryad. Simply great!

This is a very ornate hotel, I say hotel as I would not describe this as a Riad, it feels very much like a business rather than a family run place. However, the staff are very friendly and the position of the hotel is very quiet. We had the Konoutobia Suite which was aesthetically very beautiful although it had a...

My friend and I stayed here for 6 nights and we couldn't have had any more excellent service. The room was beautiful and the up keep of the gardens and surroundings are gorgeous especially compared to other riads. It is only 10 mins from the main square and souks ad only 1 minute away from a Spa - which was...

We discovered the Palais Donab by chance one hot day, and had lunch by the poolside under the benign cover of orange and lemon trees. We were so enchanted that we went back 5 times during our short stay in Marrakech. The staff are quiet, gentle and helpful but don't expect speedy service, not that this matters as you sip...

Though not staying at the hotel, I stopped here for dinner on my second night in Marrakech. I sat under the orange trees at a table next to the pool. The food and service were first rate, and the atmosphere superb as evening fell and I just let the experience wash over me. The tables were nicely set out, and...

Great location - no dark alleyways to walk down (a considerable number of Riads in Marrakech are located in areas that look dodgy during the day, let alone at night). Refreshing garden / pool area - nice to come back to after the hussle and bussle of the city. Indoor restaurant a nice place to eat - but the menu...

Just a few steps away from our riad Dar Saad, Dar Donab (palais donab) is a wonderfull and romantic setting for couple dining. The pool side tables offer a very relaxing atmosfere in a beautiful garden, all within the medina walls. We spent a beautiful evening and will come back again
