This is a beautiful Riad on the outskirts of town, it is around a 20 minute walk to the main square. The staff at this Riad could not have been more accommodating, answering our questions, booking taxis or just stopping for a chat. They are the main reason that this is a little piece of paradise in the chaos of Marrakech. We ate at the Riad each evening, the selection of meals was great and everything we chose was delicious, fresh and beautifully cooked. Abdel on reception is just so helpful and really looked after us. I would recommend this Riad to anyone and would love to visit again in future.
This is a beautiful riad in a quiet area of town but still only a 20 minute walk to the main square. The staff could not have been more obliging or helpful, nothing was too much trouble and they made sure we had everything we needed. We ate a couple of nights there and the three course set menu selection was great, as was the complimentary breakfast every morning (the orange juice and msemen pancakes are delicious!) Excellent value for money, and a delightful place to call home in the chaos of Marrakesh!
We spent one night at Riad Jardin D’Abdou. The Riad is quaint and lovely! Rooms are nicely decorated and clean, and service is wonderful. There is a heated pool in the middle of the Riad for swimming, and traditional moroccan breakfast in the morning! It’s about a 25 min walk from the Riad to the Jemma el fna. We walked to the main square while the sun was up, and after dinner we took a tuk tuk back. The Riad organized our transportation to the airport. On the way to the airport, I realized I forgot my cell phone at the Riad. Our cab driver stayed with us the entire time and coordinated with the Riad to put my phone in a taxi and bring it to us at the airport! The phone came so quickly we still made our flight to London on time! They saved the day! Would definitely recommend this Riad!
I stayed here with my partner in March and cannot recommend enough! This is a beautiful and tranquil riad in a great location in the heart of Marrakech, only a ten minute walk from all the souks and main square. The hosts are lovely, rooms are clean and comfortable and the complimentary breakfast was very satisfying. There is also a great rooftop where you can relax if you want to escape the busyness. Will definitely be staying again!
What better way is there to visit Morocco other than by staying in a traditional Moroccan Riad. If you're looking for a Riad that’s close to Jemaa el-Fnaa(The square) but yet in a quiet area, staying at Riad le Jardin d’Abdou is your best bet. Most people that stay closer to the square often have the experience of it being too loud and rowdy! The Riad is about a 23-minute walk or a 5-minute taxi ride that cost about 5-7$ USD from the square. Outside of the Riad is a localized neighborhood but inside is peaceful and tranquility. You won't find much food selections to eat around but there is a small selection menu in the hotel. If you do decide to eat at the Riad the breakfast is always free, which is outstanding and delicious. The staff was also very attentive and friendly. They even accommodated us with a bed for our young 3-year-old daughter in our room. If you do decide to do outside activities, the Riad offers to set you up with many different tours and even a Spa at another Raid with a discount. Overall we enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere in our Riad and couldn't have been happier we chose Riad le Jardin d’Abdou. For more Info on Morocco Google Travel With Meko
Le Jardin d'Abdou is a remarkable place to call 'home' in Marrakech. Abdou and his team will give you a stay to remember. Nothing is too much trouble. From the moment we were greeted by Redouane at about 11pm, Kay and I were treated more as friends than anything else. To say that nothing was too much trouble is not enough. We felt that everything we asked for was a pleasure to be given with a happy smile. Nothing, but nothing, was denied. Indeed, whenever we asked for something that perhaps we would class as a favour, it was met with open arms and 'of course, we shall be delighted to...' The accommodation is stylish, comfortable, beautifully clean, and practical. Comfy beds and bags of room. A quiet sit in the beautiful courtyard with dipping-pool is lovely, and the roofgarden is a soporific haven. On our last evening, (even though we are in our late sixties!), I asked if we could have a quiet, romantic meal up on the roof; 'absolutely, no problem, a pleasure' was Abdou's answer. It was wonderful under the open sky and we felt really special with the attentive, but discreet, service from Mustafa and Simo. While we are on the subject of food.....the chef, Zohra, is exceptional. She is meticulous in her preparation and cooking of everything, so much so, that outsiders want to come and sit at her table. If you do not ask for her couscous dish, you are making a sad mistake....it is spectacular! We had showers at 9am, and then outside our groundfloor room we ate a leisurely breakfast that was beautifully laid on our table. Beer at 1030 (that was just me!), taxi to town at 11.00 and back home at 3-4ish for a quiet sit, books, and another beer...or two, plus lovely olives! If we had lunch in town, then we attacked the casual menu for light scoff in the evening, or had one of Zohra's terrific burgers. A bottle of Sahari red (good stuff!), a game of backgammon, and a whisky to take to bed. Now, beat that......! We really are honest in saying that Le Jardin d'Abdou is a wonderful place to stay in Marrakech. It is on the outskirts of the centre, but nicely so, and we should not want to be any closer. It is walking distance, but if you are limited like me, then a taxi for four quid ain't bad.......oh, and do try a Tuk Tuk back from J'maaf na (main square) if your nerves can take it.....something you will never forget! Thank you everyone at Le Jardin d'Abdou.......we love you. The HTs
First of all DO NOT STAY HERE IF YOU’RE FROM THE AGES 18-30. A person who likes to explore, go out and make the most in a different country. These people here at Le Jardin d’ Abdou are what you call a deception it’s very disgraceful. As hot as it is they don’t have fridges in any rooms. You need to pay for them to iron your clothes as they don’t have irons in the rooms. There is no point eating at there restaurant because it’s too expensive and not even tasteful! Why waste your money eating there when you can simply get a taxi into town and try different things. Even just by doing that they make you feel guilty, ask you constantly why don’t you eat here? Or oh is there food nice over there. If you’re a person or couple that likes to stay indoors in your hotel and just chill with no noise and paddle in the pool then this is perfect for you, if not then RUN RUN RUN! You’ll be wasting your hard earned money. There isn’t even a telephone in your room to call reception just incase you need something. Furthermore the manger or whatever he calls himself is very disrespectful and inconsiderate. He would always ask me if I wanted to get changed. It’s very hot I understand it’s a muslim country and you’re meant to cover up certain parts but whatever I wore was a massive problem maybe because I’m shaped well and not thin my body stands out and makes peoples husbands stare but what can I do when I’ve been blessed with an amazing body by God. When taking taxi’s in Morocco you need to stand your ground if not you’ll get taken for a right mug. I’d order a taxi from the front desk when needed instead of them to tell me do not pay past a certain amount they’d smile in my face and say your taxi is here, knowing well enough the taxi driver will bump up the price regardless. This riad is not for people who like going out to enjoy night life my goodness me. Before stepping out they’d ask you if you’re coming back late, the exact time you’ll be back or how many hours would you be willing to stay out. Then they would have the audacity to say to you they will stay up and wait for you as always???????? What sort of disrespect is that. All those pictures and ratings are deceptions so please don’t go booking your holiday with them as you’ll be extremely disappointed and stressed. As for breakfast its meant to a buffet? WOAH! Buffet shouldn’t even be in their vocabulary. You literally get baguettes that have been cut into portions for you...... jam and other condiments, a pasty or a cake, orange juice and an omelette upon request only. You can’t even get other ingredients in your omelette it’s just a plain one or with cheese. I decided to ask for a scrambled egg one day and the waiter looked completely confused, I had to show him a tutorial from youtube to explain to the chef how to make it. Wow this has really been an eye opener of a holiday. Good luck if you want to stay here.
We decided to go to Marrakesh for a long weekend in November 2018. After booking the flights and searching for a Riad we decided on Le Jardin. We booked through booking.com yesterday and received confirmation and an invitation to download their app. However, at midnight we received an email direct from the riad to say that they had double booked and there was no room available. We have emailed booking.com and are waiting for a response. Upon checking this morning rooms are still available at a higher rate. It looks like this is a common practice for the management of the Riad. We now have to start looking for somewhere else. Avoid, avoid avoid.
Beautiful is every way! A tranquil hub in the middle of the busy Medina. The service was impeccable, nothing was ever to much. We were given fantastic advise and had help bookings restaurants. I would definitely recommend staying here to anyone visiting Marrakech.
Beautiful interior, lovely staff, relaxing environment, great rooms. I noticed that most of the time, we felt like we were the only guests at the hotel, it doesn't have many rooms and during our stay we only saw one other couple. Overall a great experience for someone looking for something quiet.
