Our favourite restaurant in Marrakesh is currently closed for the UN Climate Change conference being held until mid November. Lucky delegates being put up here, poor us, so we will have to come back again next year. We first found this former palace on our first visit to Marrakesh in a cold January and were stunned by the beauty of...

We visited for a pool day - use of small pool, towels and sun beds provided- and lunch,and can highly recommend both. The pool is not large and quite deep and so not really suitable for small children or those wishing to swim any distance, but it is ideal for cooling down on a very hot day. Lunch was excellent,...

Although this functions as a hotel I only have experience of the restaurant, visiting with a large tour group. It is beautiful, quiet place, given the noise and bustle of downtown Marrakesh is just outside the walls. A recent reviewer said it need renovation but it was in excellent condition for our visit. The restaurant tables are placed adjacent to...

I cannot deny that Palais Donab is a gem, with amazing spacious rooms, a great restaurant and is extremely beautiful, with a photogenic pool area (even though I went there in winter). Also, their staff is very accommodating and pleasant. Nevertheless, it is in urgent need of a renovation, mainly in the bathrooms.

Food was lovely and inside decor is absolutely amazing. The place has a very moroccan regal feeling to it. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed both the eating and the fantastic service. This place wasnt too far from the Riad we were staying at, and was awed at the decor.

Set in the Palace grounds the restaurant has indoor and outdoor dining. We sat beside the swimming pool in the gardens. We had the Moroccan mixed salad as a starter to share which was delicious. Then shared the chicken tangaria and the veal four flavours to share. By far the best tagine we have had in our 10 years of...

My husband and I used this hotel for a swim a couple of times whilst staying in Marrakech , the riad we were staying in didn't have an outside pool. The pool was set in a really delightful court yard surrounded by orange and lemon trees. It worked out about £10 for the day , the price included a lounger...

Went here for a pool day after phoning to get the price. Was told 150dh (approx £12) for the pool which included sun lounger and towel and if you eat here they knock 30dh off the price. Decided to go, with a friend, and paid 150dh each when we arrived (as requested), the place is lovely, not a large pool...

We spent the day here today and paid 120dh for the day by the pool. We had cocktails and Lunch (all reasonably priced). No one bothers you which is a nice change from the souk!!! The pool is large and the surroundings are lush. We spent all day here until we actually melted!

Orthentic, beautiful Riad. If it's the real taste of Marrakesh you want , then stay here! Food beautiful, service unassuming and efficient. The lovely house keeper works so hard and nothing is too much trouble ! Go for The Yasmine Suite or Royal Suite if you'd like some of your own outside space. This isn't a remodernised Riad, so don't...
