“Waowzer!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

Me and my friends booked this in the last minute and what gem it turned out to be! Words can't express how madly in love I fell with this place! And that's due to a history of mediocre experiences from hotels that look lavish but never, ever deliver.

The riad is utterly beautiful. You can really tell that it's not just something somebody put together out of an interior design book, there is real culture and history crafted within its design with inspiration taken from Dance, Art and Literature.

Above all, the staff! God they were a real delight So warm and welcoming (with great communication skills might I add as they could speak English) and willing to help and facilitate every step of the way.

I think the thing that me and my friends were most impressed with was how we contacted Dar Jaguar, and within days they organized EVERYTHING! I told them what we liked, what we might be looking for and we had a personalised itinerary made that encapsulated the very best of Marrakech.

I don't think I've comeback from a holiday so thrilled and inspired! And I'll do it all over again!

Love it!

Room Tip: Whichever one you like the look off! Because they're ALL incredible and live up to their picture...

I recently stayed at Dar Jaguar; arriving in the square you are greeted by a porter who takes you to the riad, upon entering you are met with a little oasis in the middle of the madness of the souks. Mint tea on arrival in the courtyard was the perfect introduction to Marrakech.

Fatima was exceptional in her management of the riad, basically she works tirelessly and nothing is ever to much trouble. The rooms and riad are very clean and a beautiful retreat. Only one point to note was that the rooms/beds were a little on the small side in our room, but this definately should not detract from this great find. Would recommend to anyone wanting to sample great hospitality and location.

The Riad was lovely the interior quite an assault on the senses if you have never experienced anything like this before which I had not and very true to the likeness of the photographs on trip advisor. Fatima the house manger was very helpful produced delicious mint tea on arrival and wonderful breakfasts and dinners under a sunny or starry sky on the terrace. It is centrally located to the Souks and Jemma Square which makes it an excellent location to explore from. I would highly recommend it to anyone. The only negative thing was the interior of my room I stayed in the Blue Peirot room which was nothing like the pictures on the internet it turned out to be green and tired with peeling paint and missing tiles, the mattress was very hard and uncomfortable and the duvet inadequate for the cooler night temperatures. Just be aware noise gets trapped inside the Riad and the smallest sound travels especially during the night.

Room Tip: Do not stay on the ground floor as I did, higher floors would experience less noise.

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

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
