“Great stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

What good value. Exciting arrival via the souk, following the wheelbarrow with our stuff in it.
The staff are superb and so attentive. Morrocan Whisky on arrival was lovely!
Room was absolutely fine but getting a little bit tired.
The courtyard/atrium is lovely and the plunge pool great when it is 40c outside. Terrace excellent and the breakfast good and different each day.
We had dinner twice and both times the food was excellent.
Difficult to fault this place, especially at the price, which included a fabulous massage.

Room Tip: eat dinner in the atrium with candles and morrocan smells. fantastic

The hotel arranged our transfer to the Riad and arriving into the courtyard, where a refreshing cup of mint tea was on offer, after the hustle and bustle of walking through the souk was a great start to our weekend of celebrations. The service was very attentive, the room was ok and the terrace was great to use in the evenings to soak up a few rays. Our room didn't have any storage apart from open shelves and a place to hang clothes so it always looked messy. One of the taps in the bathroom didn't work and a bulb was broken. However this didn't spoil our adventure one bit. The massage included in the package was really good and we were also given a bottle of wine that evening which we enjoyed on the terrace. Nice touch.
The location of the riad is fantastic and the team there really helpful.
I would recommend this riad as it definitely has a real home from home feel. You can't go to Marrakech and stay in a faceless, branded hotel. This is how you do Marrakech.

The Riad is in a great location for accessing the Medina. The Riad is well decorated and has a wonderful terrace to laze on during the days.

The breakfasts are also great as was the massage which was included in our package. All in all, really good value for money in a great location.

The only negative was our room was next to the front door, so we could hear all returning visitors and/or deliveries arriving to the Riad.

Really easy flight over, simple transfer and then walk into a truly stunninng dar Jaguar....even better than the web site pictures... this chic, boutique place to stay is beyond! 2 seconds from the excitement, haggling and more shopping than you can imagine in the souk, Dar Jag manages to be in the middle of all the action and yet as you walk through the door into the beautiful courtyard, it is like entering an oasis of calm, with tinkling water and singing birds - chill out bliss! The staff are really friendly and make you feel immediately at home, giving you discrete service and expert local knowledge of where to go and what to do - and how to barter! The massage on the terrace just before the sun goes down (80 degrees in March! mmmm) is a definite must do as are the plethora of fab places to eat and drink - from hip to waha....definitely go again.

Room Tip: All rooms are gorgeous

From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave Dar Jaguar is pure escapism! Luxury in the heart of the Madena - just beautiful rustic Marrocan charm! Every room perfectly enhances the romance and charm of the country. A treat for all the senses - if you are looking for somewhere authentic yet beautifully relaxing with staff who will meet all of your needs then this is the place to stay! The food here is delicious, fresh and enticing! Smells and flavours to come back for time and time again. Each morning we were served wonderfully tasting fresh baked Marroccan pastries and pancakes, hot coffee and the freshest of Orange juice! Beautiful Riad in the heart of the hussle and bussle - just perfect!

Room Tip: All the rooms are unique and if travelling on a romantic stay State of Grace is a must!!! Otherwise...

My friends I stayed at Dar Jaguar a few weeks back and had a great time. The staff is fantastic - they really make you feel like you are a part of their family. Staying in this amazing riad nestled within the chaos of the medina was the perfect choice for us. After an exhausting day exploring and shopping the souks we were able to kick back and relax in our home away from home. Dar Jaguar was perfect for our girls get away and I would highly recommend it for a couples retreat as well. In other words, no matter who your travel Companions are or even if you are traveling alone stay at Dar Jaguar! You’ll be glad you did.

Room Tip: There are 5 rooms in this riad and all are lovely. Check out the website. The photos are spot on

We stayed at Dar Jaguar in Marrakech for our tenth wedding anniversary in December 2010.

Aside from marrying my wife in the first place, it was definitely one of the best decisions that I have made in my life. We felt looked after from the moment we booked the trip and made to feel very special throughout our stay. Dar Jaguar is a truly magical place, a warm welcome, fantastic food, stunning. The location is unbeatable, off the main square and handy for the Souks. We are already working out who we will bring back to help celebrate our 20th.

Room Tip: Any room with an open fire. The suite is stunning.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
"Lose your mind and come to your senses." Lucia Silver, Owner Dar Jaguar Says Lucia: "The desire to create my riad hotel, Dar Jaguar, was born of a deep longing to escape, explore and discover. Escaping London and exploring Marrakech for the first time, I was captivated by the biblical medina. How mysterious dirt track alleyways led to these heavenly bejewelled palaces. I felt like Scheherazade on honeymoon in Morocco and blissfully lost inside an exotic Arabic tale of exquisite beauty and romance. It ignited a passionate desire to "own" a piece of this ancient world - my very own romantic getaway. I found Dar Jaguar in the best possible location - only three minutes from BOTH the world famous Place Jemaa El Fna and the exotic Spice Market. This was true romance. I was in love. It took me 12 months of sun-drenched hard work to renovate and restore this riad hotel to its original beauty: A traditional blend of Moorish and Oriental architecture, built around an idyllic courtyard fountain with palm trees wrapped in lavish bougainvillea." With three salons, a plunge pool, a rooftop terrace for dining and sun worshipping, a cool courtyard, massage on demand and sumptuous bedrooms designed by a London couture fashion designer, this truly is a glistening slice of heaven. For this reason, our guests choose Dar Jaguar just as often for their honeymoon in Morocco as for their family holiday, perfect hen party accommodation and for their birthday celebrations. ... more   less
