“A fantastic hotel in a perfect setting!”
Reviewed May 18, 2010

The hotel is perfectly located in a quiet part of the Medina but within walking distance of the main attractions. On arrival we were warmly welcomed with a pot of mint tea and led to our room, which was sizeable, spotless and with adequate facilities, overlooking the beautifully maintained gardens. The whole ambience of this hotel is that of style and elegance in a very 'french shabby chic' kind of way, it is almost like a hidden gem within the chaos of Marrakesh - a very tranquil place. The food both at lunch time and evening was excellent and the mojito's are too ! We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Les Jardins de la Medina and are planning a return trip in 2011.

The unassuming facade and entrance door of this Kasbah is in surprising contrast to the lush gardens, stylish interior and luxurious rooms inside. The hotel is about 15 minutes walking away from the great square. There are no restaurants or other points of interest in the immediate vicinity, but all important sites are easily reached by taxi in 5 to 10 minutes. The garden in the hotel is truly wonderful, and it has been a special treat to wake up to the chirping of singing birds. The hustle and bustle of Marrakesh is cannot be heard inside the hotel and gardens - it is a perfect place to recover from sightseeing and to relax. The restaurant of the hotel is also very good. Our room was furnished tastefully, however I would have liked to have a bit more closet space.

Once again I was grateful that research on trip advisor proved worthwhile. We stayed at Les Jardins for 6 nights with two teen boys and an 11 yr old over the Easter break. Although there the walk to Jemma El Fna is an obstacle course and sidestepping speeding motos, caleches and cars can be tiring the boys were tirelessly entertained by all they saw. I would recommend a taxi on your first day until you have adapted to Marrakeshi street life. The hotel itself was a gem...spotlessly clean. wonderful breakfasts and an excellent dinner there (once only for us as it is pretty expensive). We loved the sunbathing terraces overlooking the city with floaty muslin curtains and scatter cushions - all very decadent and appealing. The pool got quite busy around midday but the lush dense gardens give a sense of seclusion and privacy. We all used the mini gym and massage/beauty treatments (adequate - not brilliant). My husband and boys played tennis daily at the Royal Maroc tennis club too - ring the hotel in advance to book. The rooms were lovely - spacious and clean with beautiful tiling and luxorious argan oils to use. Crunchy starched cotton sheets and effective daily room cleaning. It felt very french with its eau de nil shutters and shaded terrace restaurant - until you woke to the sound of the tropical birds calling and noticed friendly tortoises (a great hit with my 11 yr old) bumbling around in the undergrowth. I particularly want to mention how the reception desk (staffed by ever helpful and charming personnel) sent out a porter at 11 pm to find antibiotic eye drops for my son. They arrived within half an hour and the problem was cleared up in24hrs. A lovely place - I was really sad to leave!

We stayed in this riad a couple of weeks ago for a 4 night break. When we arrived at the door it was difficult to know what to expect but we were nicely surprised. It is very peaceful and attractive with all the rooms set around a courtyard with a small swimming pool and various nooks and crannies to sit in peace. The staff were very nice and helpful and spoke relatively good english but as we speak French it was'nt a problem anyway. Our room which was a superior one was on the first floor and was very big with a bath and shower which had rose petals scattered around on the first night, a very nice touch. The only down side was it was extremely noisy as early as 5.30-6 in the morning as it appeared to be above the kitchen and dining area and also opposite the maid's cleaning cupboard and they seemed to start around 6am too! If I went again I would have a room elsewhere as the rooms along the courtyard away from the dining area and pool would be much quieter. The food was very good and we ate there all but one night. I would recommend going from a Thursday til Monday as there is a free drinks party on the Thursday which was nice to meet fellow guests and the owners, on Friday they have a typical Morroccan evening and on Sunday there is a brunch. It is about a 20 minute walk to the main square and medina but a pleasant stroll and the taxis are cheap if you need one. A word of caution beware of getting lost in the medina itself as we could'nt find our way out for about two hours! All in all a very pleasant stay.

Typical of Marrakech, you walk through this non-descript door in a wall and find yourself in a really beautiful garden. We had 3 nights here, exploring the medina. It's location at the southern end means everything's a bit of a walk (which suited us fine) but it's very quiet. We were a party of 11, so the pool got a good work out (quiet outside, I meant); the rooms were fine and the breakfasts excellent. It's quite a large place (36 rooms I think) so it's not the intimate experience you find in a traditional riad. We enjoyed the roof terrace - large banquets, interesting roof top views and great for a siesta. Service was of a high quality, and the staff friendly and professional. No complaints at all, but we didn't fall in love.
