Lovely rooms, beautiful infinity pool and gardens. Very relaxing place for a holiday. Staff were excellent, friendly and very helpful. The food was delicious and they baked us a fabulous birthday cake. It was our second visit and we will definitely be back!

I came here because the reviews were so good & I have little more to add - except that under a 40° sun the pool area is fabulous - cool water with total peace - people reading their books in the pool, & a wonderful view from the pool water over trees & flowering bushes. No negatives except lack of... More

This place is gorgeous. Really beautifully landscaped and surrounded by stunning gardens and views across the river and countryside beyond. We were slightly concerned about it being a family hotel, as we were a couple looking for peace and quiet, but we needn't have feared as there is a separate, 'calm' adult pool, which was very peaceful with plenty of...

Enough of buzzy Marrakech's and Essaouira's medinas ... Time to enjoy the paradise gardens, healthy and exquisite food and jazzy music in 'Le jardins de Douars' a 'silent' resort with child friendly accommodations. Lay back and relax while the most attentive staff pamper there guests.

We (2a and 2c) stayed here for 10 nights in August 2015, taking advantage of the new Easyjet route from London Luton. The hotel and its grounds are stunning and we all enjoyed exploring them and sitting, relaxing in their many beautiful areas. Our room (a family room with terrace) was also just what we hoped for. Truly Moroccan with... More

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
