Blissful, Tranquil, Calming, Friendly, Unobtrusive, Relaxing, Comfortable... Just a few words to describe the 'Les Jardins de La Koutoubia' Hotel in Downtown Marrakech.
After a rather bad start to our first vacation in Morocco, we had to move hotels next day; I went in search for a hotel that I could rate 'clean' and 'friendly'. Thanks to my iPad and hotels.com, within 2 hours I stumbled upon the 'Les Jardins de La Koutoubia'. Situated in the cities old-town (The Medina) I knew I was home as soon as I walk though the front doors. I checked in for 7 nights and never looked back... blissful could only describe the well kept surrounding of this larger than normal boutique hotel. In anyone’s standards, this was truly 5 star. I met several of the hotel guests during my stay; some of who were British, American but most were obviously French.
The hotel has several outdoor swimming pools as well as a wellbeing underground pool in the hotel's luxury spa. The main pool area was situtated in the hotels courtyard area. It had plenty of clean, comfortable sun-loungers shaded with Palm-trees. The noise from the hustle & bustle from Marrakech's noisy streets was completely blocked by the shape of the hotel... With only the sound of birds in the overhanging palm-trees, I had to keep reminding myself I was in the middle of a busy city. Marrakech Square is only 5 minutes away, a place everyone goes of an evening. The Souk’s busy backstreets surround the hotel from all areas. To soak-up the Moroccan experience, I had picked a hotel ‘right-bang-smack’ in the perfect location.
A full breakfast service was available to all guests in the hotel’s ground floor restaurant and poolside terrace. By day… soft drinks, coffees, teas, beers, light lunches & ice cream were served to you by the pool our nearby restaurant’s terrace. Of an evening the hotel’s three truly wonderful restaurants opened for dinner. The main eatery was the ground floor Moroccan Restaurant. Close by, the hotel’s gardens were turned into a wonderful international restaurant serving tasty meats, chicken, fish and vegetable dishes. On the hotel’s rooftop terrace restaurant, we were delighted by the flavours of Asia… the ‘Les Jardin’s de Bala’ Indian Restaurant. By day they served light Asia snacks and meals either in the restaurant or by the rooftop poolside but by evening the ‘Les Jardin’s de Bala’ burst into life… ‘Indian style’. The food and service were wonderful in all restaurants.
Our hotel suite was clean, modern & very spacious. It had a large balcony overlooking the hotel’s garden, 2 large wall mounted LCD Televisions with a few English speaking news and movie channels, plenty of wardrobe space, large bathroom with separate bath & shower... but most importantly of all... a very comfortable bed.
My stay at the 'Les Jardins de La Koutoubia' was perfect in every way but its friendly staff made my visit most memorable, a special mention to ‘Kareem’, one of the hotels young concierge staff… he was so welcoming, friendly & helpful when we arrived. If I ever return to Marrakech, I will most definitely stay at this hotel.
