We stayed one night in the Douiria(?) room. It was more like an apartment with a nice living room, a kitchen, a bedroom with a queen-size bed, and two twin beds on the side of the living room. It was very spacious and can sleep a family of 4 or more. But it did get a bit cold for the two of us at night. There just wasn't enough heat for the April nights. So I would recommend this place for the summer time. Other than that, the food was good. The ground is lovely. We were glad that we stayed in the Ourika Valley to be able to hike area the next day in Setti Fatma.

Stayed: April 2012

We decided to stay here for two nights based on TripAdvisor reviews. The owner met us in Marrakech and helped us get a taxi for the journey through the mountains to Ourika Garden (I think transport could even be provided, with enough notice). The journey is surprisingly short (under 1 hour), the difference in pace of life between Marrakech and the Ourika Valley is quite significant!

We were the only people staying at the Ourika Garden (February is low season) and the staff could not have done more to help us, including preparing great good and lighting the fireplace in the evenings (each of the four rooms has it's own living area and fire!).

A very quiet and peaceful place to stay, with a nice garden, pool and truly amazing views over snow-capped mountains. The small village of Oulmes is a short walk up the hill (and along the river) if you fancy a stroll or a tagine.

The Ourika Garden staff arranged a day trek to a nearby Berber village for us at the last minute; it was a real highlight of our week in Morocco.

I would definitely recommend staying here!

Room Tip: The rooms are more like mini-apartments! We stayed in the smallest (Agour) and still had our own living room and fireplace!

I have endless good things to say about this retreat. We were met in Marrakech and driven up to the gardens by the owner. The place is so beautiful and pictures do not do it justice. Everything is very intimate, with only four rooms available. We opted for the cheapest room, which was still sizable, with its own living room and fire place. We were the only people staying at the villa when we went. All of the staff were extremely attentive, kind and helpful. We were given a menu with options for dinner, with which they cooked using ingredients from their own massive herb and vegetable garden. It is definitely a charming break from the hectic Moroccan cities, whether you wish to go for hikes or just lay by the pool.

I can't say enough good about Mr. Alaoui, the manager, here. He met us in Marrakech and brought us up to Ourika, stopping off at a couple of obscure places we'd asked about along the way, translating for us, etc. And my friend had her birthday while we were staying here, and he arranged a beautiful personalized cake (mmm--wish I'd eaten more) and a table scattered with rose petals and lit with candles, and all the kitchen staff in their finest formal uniforms.

The rest of the staff was kind and thoughtful too, and we felt so lucky to be here, and so well taken care of. Ben (the owner, who handles email) arranged a taxi and a hiking guide at good rates as well. It was early in the season, so we were the only guests, and had the run of the place. There's a beautiful herb garden, and a million terraces to sit on and take in the view.

I loved my room--the style is very rustic, but not uncomfortable. Very thick walls, traditional carpets and furniture, a comfy sitting area. (I swear--the challenge of staying here was just trying to figure out where the best place was to sit and read my book...)

The place looks very family-friendly--the suites have kitchens and everything--and it seems like it would be especially fun in July or August, when Moroccan families come up from Marrakech for vacation.

The location is nice--not super-remote. I took evening walks up and down the main road, and there are people out, and some shops. But you are basically relying on the kitchen at the hotel for all meals. They're good, but if you were staying for more than a couple of days, you'd probably want to branch out a bit--get a suite with a kitchen and stock up on groceries. Ah....dreaming about a weeklong total chill-out visit now!

Ourika Garden have a really wonderful garden with fresh herbs, flowers and a pool area. Lovely to hang out in during a warm spring day! The surroundings are also very nice - and conveniently near to Marrakech. The best thing about Ourika Garden is however its staff - always smiling and willing to make your stay the best possible. As another reviewer mentioned they are genuinly nice and very generous (our dinner had been discounted on our bill and we were given wine free of charge). Breakfast was great with pancakes, fresh goat cheese and local argane oil.
Our room was interesting, very large and the bathroom could have better cleaned.
