My husband and I stayed here as the first leg of our honeymoon for 5 nights. The grounds and setting of this hotel is absolutely amazing. It's like walking into a paradise like something out of a movie! I cannot fault the cleanliness or the upkeep on the grounds and the facilities here. The place is in pristine order, nothing... More

We had a wonderful holiday at Le Jardin des Douars! We were really well looked after; lovely food, excellent wine and comfortable rooms (with a gorgeous sun terrace). My husband and I enjoyed eating al fresco, sun bathing on the terrace and the spa - which was excellent - and my one year-old loved the children's pool and the frogs... More

This really is a small piece of paradise. The whole hotel shows an attention to detail to make your stay a good as it can possibly be - from the superb breakfasts in the morning to cocktails on the terrace in the evenings.

Wonderful upgrade to the Royal suite on arrival. The suite had beautiful views, great space & a comfortable emperor size bed. The atmosphere in the hotel was very relaxed and all the staff were friendly & willing to help at all times.

We loved our stay at Le Jardin des Douars and felt relaxed as soon as we arrived; the pools are great and the hotel is beautiful. Service was excellent and we were really impressed with the food (especially the breakfast). Would recommend and can't wait to go back.

Located 7 miles from the hustle and bustle of Essaouira, Le Jardin des Douars is an oasis, a rare gem found on the beautiful west coast of Morocco. The staff made us feel so welcome and were extremely attentive to their guests needs. The pool was paradise, with quiet corners making it feel like it was your own private place... More

Set among stunning gardens, bursting with colourful flowers and scents, this is a beautiful and magical place, which looks even better in reality than in photos. We came for 3 nights, having just spent a few days staying in Essaouria's old town, and intended to make at least 1 visit back to town while we were here. But we couldn't... More

I loved this place. The gardens, swimming pools and grounds are stunning and the food was really excellent. I could have stayed and relaxed here for a very long time, 4 nights was not enough. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. I would advise staying outside of Essaouria (its warmer and less windy even just 15 minutes outside) The... More

Don't expect much when the driver says, "There is the hotel. That is where you are going." All one can see is a cluster of rooftops, barely visible in an unpromising landscape, the other end of a dirt track. But wait. Once inside, this is a glowing world of pink walls and archways; or welcoming smiles and richly planted flowerbeds.... More

Absolutely stunning hotel, the staff were all incredibly helpful and very friendly. Beautiful and quiet pool, where you can relax and switch off completely. The food was delicious and you can buy alcohol if needed. I would recommend my friends and family to stay at this hotel. Helped book all our needs into town and were very quick to reply... More
