“dearest Hicham en Medhi our wonderfull staff at the domaine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

The domaine was wonderfull to stay, when you come Back from a crowdy, busy day in the city, it is a place tot come home to.
You feel calme, it is very quit, there still is ambiance in the evening with a litlle music on the terras. the manager Hicham is excellent, we called him Monsieur ne pas de probleme!
His younger staff Co. Worker Medhi was also very politie, helpfull, friendly, they were allways at our service, whenever you want. They do their very best to make you feel welcome and chilled.
They are also very genereus! Thank you Guys.
Your security is granted by the large wall surroundings and large gates that can open from the inside only, on the outside only by the manager or staff.
One negatieve point is the cost of the taxi. The organisation from the domaine is great but because it's a litlle to far out of the center it Will cost you 150 dirham just to go and than again to come back. If you have a good realtion with other quest, you can split the cost.
We did with our British friends Nisha and Michael, thanks Guys we are greatfull!
Be carefull on There website says each room has a blowdryer but they don't, that 's a litlle uncomfortable and not pleasant.
The area around the domain is in full expansion, so Le Domain can grow furter in a even more positive way! good luck to domaine de L'ourika and Hicham en Medhi keep up the good job you Guys do!

Much love, Sandra and Moniek from Belgium

We have recently returned from our day at La Domaine, in terms of service from the staff is it 5 * but I thought it best to list positives and negatives for a balanced view.

The current owners have only been running the place for 6 months and I think they are still not what sure of their identity , it is neither a hotel or a boutique B & B.

The villas are all two bed and beautifully set around a central pool. Beds are comfortable and towels are provided but only one small bath towel each and one hand towel for whole villa. So they need took look at larger and more towels. Pool towels are available every day and they are huge. There are no hairdryers not a problem for me but can imagine it might be.

The villas has a kitchenette which consists of small sink and fridge however there is no crockery, cups knives forks or kettle. You can ask for some but I would suggest that if you are offering a kitchenette it should be equipped as there is a Carrerfour down the road and we stocked on basics for lunch/snack water etc.

The restauarant isnt really a restauarante there is no menu and no price list however we established that all drinks are 2e and all meals 12 e.

Breakfast is very basic and if you have a wheat allergy you are in trouble. Unlike the pictures on the website we didn't see any fruit all week. It is a selection of breads, fried pancaked things, Jam, honey, laughing cow cheese and butter. I would have liked to seen some melon, etc every day as an alternative.

Dinner is available in the evening you have to order at least two hours before hand as its all cooked fresh - the food is excellent a selection of Tagines and grilled meats but again a menu would be nice.

The service from all staff is fantasticv Mehrde who has only been there two weeks is a complete star and quite frankly made the holiday for us.

If you want to be on top of things this is not the place for you - you will need a taxi into the medina 150 dihrams in and 150 dihramns back 200 at night. If we were to go back we would probably stay in a Riad in town for 2/3 nights and then come out here for peace quiet relaxtion and trips into the mountians.

The hotel are yet to offer arranged excursions so you will need to book in town.

The taxi service was random and a couple of times they tried to rip us off so putting 4 of us in the taxi but trying to charge double fare (this is the taxi co not hotel). It would be better if the hotel had their own taxi and said it went into town at 10, 2, 4, 6 and back at 11, 3, 5, 7 etc as so many times we were all going in around the same time but in different taxis. Also the taxis from town actually dont know where the hotel is!!!!!!

Dont get me wrong this is a fantastic place to stay with wonderful staff they just need to get themselves better organised and lay out their stall so to speak

Also they dont take credit cards but there are plenty of ATMS in town.

The town is fab and will writ a different review. Would I stay there again definitely but only for a couple of nights .

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely.....

A complex of villa's in a beautiful walled garden with a pool at the centre. Each villa has two bedrooms, a shower room and a lovely large sitting room with patio doors out onto a terrace and access to the garden and pool. Our room was very comfortable and although its not brand new it was always spotlessly clean. The complex is a little way out of Marrakech so you will need to ask the owners to order you a taxi to get into the city. We used the same guy every day who spoke excellent English and we were able to call him on his mobile and he would come at get us with 30 minutes notice. It was lovely and quiet at night and the night sky was full of stars. The owners and staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful and we felt very welcome. The pool was fabulous and was always sparkling!! Breakfast was served on an outdoor covered terrace with views of the pool and garden and you could order other meals with a couple of hours notice. We ate twice at the complex and both meals were outstanding and excellent value for money. We loved our stay here and were sad to leave. The only thing that they could have improved was to provide hair dryers in the rooms. They didn't have any so we had to air dry for the few days we were there.

Ten apartments surround the swimming pool and set in beautiful, gated gardens.
Apartments have two bedrooms,(one double, one twin), bathroom with shower, air conditioning, adequate wardrobe space and relaxing lounge. Kitchen area includes a fridge.
They are very clean as cleaned daily and towels provided for both personal and pool use daily.
Each apartment has private garden space with table and chairs, accessible from each room.
The staff are willing to assist in any way they can. Organising taxis, trips or room service and nothing appears to be too much trouble. (any concerns are addressed immediately)
Dining is al fresco, well prepared and nicely presented. (No alcohol served)
This was a relaxing location but near enough to the hustle and bustle of Marrakesh.

Great little hotel with large habitations. You have plenty of space inside and a nice swiming pool outside. The garden is well kept and kids will look for turtles. The staff is welcoming and the breakfast are nice. The food for dinner are OK for the price. Some limitations however : you will need a car and some little things were KO (some lamps, no soap ...). Still good for the price.

It has really great views of the Atlas Mountains by day, and a magical starry sky by night. Stylish, spacious rooms with privacy yet easy access to common areas. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and it seemed to us they each took real pride in what they were doing.
The hotel has several villas, a large swimming pool and understated garden areas. It is close yet not suffocating-ly close to Marrakech town centre or the near by villages – which feels nice in many ways. Our two bedrooms villa was tastefully decorated, really spacious, clean and welcoming. Trips to Marrakech, to the mountains or to the desert were made available via the hotel. A thought for next time ,,,,
The place offered just what we wanted: space, comfort and intrigue / things to do if wanted.

Room Tip: Single beds also available which is great for friends sharing
