“The best oasis in Taroudant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

Wonderful. Gardens and rooms. A real treat!
Too bad the dinner was not at the level of the rest
We will most likely return to this hotel but find another restaurant for the dinner.
Service is outstanding.

Room Tip: Dinner. 3 stars. average Gardens. 5 stars wonderful

A lovely place to relax with comfortable accommodation, a beautiful pool and attractive areas to sit in and relax. The standard of customer service was excellent and all the staff had obviously been well trained. DWe took the opportunity to relax and do nothing after a hectic 10 days in Morocco and this was the perfect place for us. We had breakfast on the patio outside our bungalow, lunch at the pool, then drinks and snacks in the main terrace area before dinner. Other visitors were on walking tours each day with a guide, and there is plenty to do in the area if you want to. Monaime, the Manager, and the owner, asked us each day if everything was to our satisfaction.

There is some traffic noise from the road which passes in front of the hotel, but our bungalow was set at the back of the complex which helped, and we couldn't hear anything at night.

Just one word of warning- there is another hotel with the same name, which was in our Lonely Planet guidebook, so check when you book which you are going to!

Room Tip: Ask for a bungalow at the back of the property

As you come into Taroudant and pull off the road into Dar Zitoune you can hardly believe what awaits you through the heavy wooden doors, beautiful gardens full of flower and birds, the place is spotlessly clean and the welcome effusive. That welcome remains throughout your stay, if I had to pick out one feature then it would be the staff they just can't do enough for you.
The accommodation is comfortable and everything works!
The pool is spotless and the pool man seems to be physic placing the towels for you as you arrive!
The food is OK and the quantities generous.
We will be back for another relaxing break.

Lovely hotel with gorgeous gardens. Liked the bungalow type accommodation. Unfortunately I was unwell there though with stomach problems. The staff were very friendly and courteous and offered me their services for going to the pharmacy or arranging a dr, which I declined. Hopefully it was nothing to do with the excellent food there

Room Tip: we had lovely "bungalow" with large lounge with tv and superb bathroom Think anywhere the...

I have just spent 6 nights in this hotel and it was a perfect break. The hotel is really beautiful, with glorious gardens and the rooms are in little bungalows dotted around the grounds. The rooms themselves are really lovely, styled in a traditional way but with lovely little details (like the alcove in the shower for the shampoo, and even "window seats" in the shower!). The little pastries which arrived daily were much too good and the food was so delicious each night that it wasn't long before my clothes started to feel a little tight... But what is incredibly special about the hotel is the staff. The owner is always visible, making sure that all is well and not at all "high and mighty" - he welcomed us and immediately picked up suitcases, along with the other reception staff. All the staff were fantastic and so friendly, wanting to make sure that everyone was happy - which we invariably were. The pool was a bit chilly (unheated) but that is the only tiny thing that would have made the stay even more enjoyable. The hammam was glorious and there was a nice outdoor jacuzzi. I highly recommend this hotel - I simply didn't want to leave. Will definitely return there at some stage.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a little patio area

We spent 5 nights based at Dar Zitoune with our 2 children (12 YO and 14 YO).
Beautiful location.
Friendly and helpful staff.
The gardens are lovely - and free-range tortoises great fun.
Easy access to Taroudant itself, and a great base for eg visits to the High Atlas.

We have been to Dar Zitoune three times now and have always enjoyed a wonderful stay. Whether in the Spring or Autumn, this hotel provides amazing accommodations in a friendly, family atmosphere. The bungalow was excellent and quiet, in a magnificent garden. The food is delicious and the service excellent. The whole staff is very helpful and considerate and the owner is extremely nice and kind. We'll return for sure.
