Les Jardines provides a haven away from the general chaos of the Marrakech medina. The gardens are delightful and the swimming pool heated. Scattered throughout the hotel and gardens are bijou seating areas, so even after staying for 3 days there was not sufficient time to discover all the quiet semi secluded spots.
Our room was delightful; large, well proportioned with a separate seating area and small balcony overlooking the gardens. We were over the hamman downstairs, which perhaps explains why there seemed to be under-floor heating?
Our double bed was large, comfortable and had a mountains of pillows (a must for me), while the bathroom was small, but stylish.
Room maid service in particular was very good, coming at least twice a day and departing leaving a shower of rose petals.
We were particularly impressed with the early morning tea service, which was quick and free. This is so much appreciated when hotels often charge an silly amount for this core service (the Cirankan Palace in Istanbul once charged us US$23 for two tea bags and hot water ~ I still have the bill).
The breakfast buffet is good quality and is served overlooking the gardens, we also enjoyed the popular restaurant for dinner (reviewed elsewhere). Good food at a reasonable price.
The big downside of Les Jardines is the location which is in the extreme SW of the Medina. While close to the palaces and the royal tombs, it is still a hike and the main attractions of Marrakech are definitely a taxi ride away unless you like walking and that is not practical in the warmer weather. The narrow streets mean that vehicle access can be slow at times.
Good quality, free wifi
