“This is an excellent base from which to explore Marrakesh, in comfort and style.”
Reviewed October 24, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Pleasantly surprised by the size of the property which gave every member of our party enough space to relax as and when they wanted. The outside space was used with great effect and the pool was just an added bonus. Having Nadia there and Jamal to look after us was a great advantage as we were first timers in Marrakesh. Nadia's cooking exceeded our expectations and was in most cases better than the local restaurants. She was a great asset to our stay there. The villa is well within walking distance of central main street but yet just far enough to be extremely quite in the evenings when sitting out. Jamal also made easy our excursions list and looked after every detail including taking us to the local supermarket to stock up on the essentials for a large group.

“Ideal base to explore Marrakech”
Reviewed September 7, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

An absolutely lovely, spacious villa with local character which was perfect for our first visit to Marrakech.

Located conveniently, it's a short taxi ride to either Guilez centre or the Medina. There was more than enough space for our family of 5 and the pool was perfect to escape the 40deg heat.

Nadia was so nice, kind and helpful. We preferred her cooking over restaurants - certainly it was better value!!

Jamal, with his beaming smile, met us at the airport and made us feel most welcome.  His help was invaluable, making getting into and around the Medina, finding great places to eat, seeing the sites and shopping most enjoyable. He also arranged a trip to the desert where we slept out under the stars which was a highlight.

Carol made booking straightforward and gave us a great welcome.  Our thanks to her for the advice and brilliant house to use as a base.

“fab villa beautifully decked out”
Reviewed February 11, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

I spent a week with my extended family in the Villa Zainab. The villa is gorgeous and beautifully decked out. Very spacious and with a number of outdoor areas, everyone had their own space. Its well located - It's close enough to the medina (short taxi ride away) but yet in a peaceful and more chilled out suburb allowing you to dip in and out of the hecticness of the medina at your leisure

“Best Birthday Holiday Ever!!!!!”
Reviewed December 18, 2013 for a stay in December 2013

This was my first visit to Marrakech & I loved it. It was for my 31st Birthday & I was in a group of 10 (including myself). This Villa is amazing - has everything you need. We were greeted by the villa owner (Ngwang) who was the perfect host & informed us of the do's and don'ts of Marrakech. He also supplied an amazing chef Nadia & amazing tour guide Jamal with a small fee. I would 100% recommend this Villa, the rooms are lovely & clean with spacious bathrooms - the area is perfect too. It is near the clubs/bars/airport/about an hour away from Atlas Mountains/lovely places to eat and very near the Market.
Definitely an amazing holiday I won't forget!
Thank You

“BEST VILLA EVER!!!”
Reviewed September 24, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

My family which consists of my husband, myself and our 7 children rented this villa for 2 weeks in Augusust 2013, and I have to say, .. what a BRILLIANT choice we made! First and foremost Ngawang the owner always replied my emails promptly and was always happy to help us out in any way. I felt I knew him even before we even got there.
When we arrived our tour guide Jamal met us at the airport and took us directly to the villa. What a welcome we had! We were met by Carol and Nadia and had our first Morrocan mint tea. We were then shown around the villa. It was quite spacious and the pool looked fantastic. Our two week stay was fabulous. We had Jamal who helped us with everything, nothing was too big or small for him to do. Nadia also cooked for us almost daily and her food was simply the best we tasted in Morocco. Her lamb tagine was the best! We found Nadia to be a lovely and kind woman and even took my girls and I to the local Hammam which was an experience we will never forget.
We all spent a lot of time in the pool especially since the temperature was in the 40's. The beds were comfortable and the air- conditioning a god-send in the heat.
We were given a mobile phone with Ngawang, Jamal and Nadia's number to use if we needed anything. Jamal also helped my husband Mark and I buy a dongle to use which we were able to use at the villa as it had no Wifi which was absoultely brilliant as we could get our emails etc.
The villa is a walking distance to Gueliz which meant there was no need for transportation but because our family was large we decided to hire a mini van and driver. We would like to thank the 3 drivers we had who were all very helpful and polite especially Mohammed. We were able to go to places like Jeema el Fnaa, Majorelle Gardens, Chez Ali, The Atlas Mountains and especially a trip to the seaside Essaouira and many more places.
There are also lots of restaurants to eat at, our favourite was Kechmara which we ate at twice. Our experience in Marrakech/Morocco would not have been what it was without the help and services of Ngawang, Carol, Nadia and Jamal. This villa is the "bees knees". You won't regret renting it!

“One in a million”
Reviewed June 19, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Wow......what a beautiful villa and fantastic place to spend my hen weekend. The villa had everything we needed there were 9 of us in total and we definitely had plenty of space and more, everybody's warm welcome and Nadia's cooking made it all the more special. The outside area was perfect and the pool was lovely in the 40 degree heat! The location was great as everything was close by.......However we could not have done everything we did without Jamal what a fantastic guide and great character. We found all the locals so friendly and proud to show us their city. If you want to see in Marrakech in style Villa Zainab as your accommodation is a must you will not be disappointed. We will definitely be back maybe with our partners next time! :-))))
