Guestbook comments from the owner

We had the pleasure of saying at this fabulous villa for a week in October and I we were most impressed. The villa is beautifully and is in a very peaceful location but close enough to the hustle and bustle of city should you wish to explore .



The pool was perfectly sized for our 2 kids aged 8 and 10 (I would recommend having it heated so you can enjoy it all day ) and we choose to be indulged by the wonderful cook Fatima who mustered up the most fabulous Moroccan food which was definitely better than anything that we ate in the ' guide book ' recommended eateries in town.



In short if you want a week of R & R in glorious sunshine and a five star setting this is the place for you, the local concierge was very helpful at organising taxi's and a driver to visit the Atlas Mountains and a trip to the zip wire course.



We will definitely return.



Thank you Rob and Philippe and Omar.

A luxurious oasis of serenity.......

  • 5 of 5

For the discerning and experienced villa renter, Domaine Akdhar will tick all the boxes for a luxurious getaway break. The setting is half an hour from the airport and transfer is provided. On arrival at the villa, visitors are greeted by the extremely efficient Housekeeper, Karima who has ensured the villa is spotlessly clean for your arrival both inside and outside in the grounds by the swimming pool. (i.e correct number of sunbeds arranged with folded pool towels for each guest). This attention to detail is maintained throughout your stay and the villa is cleaned daily.

The villa is large, with a Riad style courtyard as well as a good size garden and beautiful swimming pool. The décor could be described as authentic and opulent with en-suite marble bathrooms and swathes of fabric draped at the bedroom windows. The provision of air conditioning units throughout the villa ensures comfort during the hottest times of the day. Our children, (boy aged 11 and twins aged 9) were delighted with the villa surroundings and the pool. They chose to utilise the clubhouse facilities in the morning and the villa pool in the afternoon. The clubhouse pool and grounds are also very well maintained with plenty of beds and seating.

We opted for full board at the villa and would rate the food and service as 5* - no food request was too much trouble for the wonderful chef and each meal was served at the times we requested. Every meal was freshly prepared and we preferred to opt for the authentic Moroccan cuisine each day. We dusted off our 'school standard' French and were easily able to converse with the staff. We have previously stayed in a villa in Sri Lanka which was staffed, therefore, we had an idea of how this system works. However, we cannot emphasise how discreet the staff at Domaine Akhdar are, they operate in such a way that you feel as if you are in the audience of a professional theatre production where everything goes on behind the scenes but you are not privy to the mechanics or effort that it all entails............

If you are looking for 5* hotel service with the luxurious privacy of a villa then this this ideal combination is thoroughly catered for in Domaine Akhdar.

Amazing private Villa and gardens.

  • 5 of 5

Stunning property, very well kept and plenty of room. The staff were wonderful and the food was both plentiful and amazing. The pool was kept at a temperature that meant once you were in you were happy to stay in. We had a wonderful break and can highly recommend it.

Great place to spend a week away

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful week's stay at this amazing villa in Marrakech over the past week.. If anyone is planning on visiting Marrakech, I fully recommend this villa and do ask for the all inclusive package as the meals prepared by Karima and Hannan have been incredible (to say the least)... Many thanks to Rob for arranging everything....

Absolutely delightful stay

  • 4 of 5

The villa is absolutely stunning, maintained beautifully with amazing pool that's completely private. We had a wonderful housekeeper who looked after us so well and the food was amazing, we opted for full board and it just took all the pressure off so we could fully relax. The villa is a distance from civilisation and you will need to hire a car or have a driver/taxi which came at quite a cost but with two small kids, we had no choice so that's my only reason for not giving 5 stars, the travel was just a little inconvenient at times but without children it probably wouldn't have bothered us. A really wonderful stay and I'm sure you wouldn't be disappointed.

Fantastic long weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this Villa! In the lead up to our weekend I had a lot of questions for Rob since I was planning the trip for a friend, and he always was super quick to respond and very helpful. On arrival, we were SO pleased with how beautiful and clean the villa was. Karima, the housekeeper, was just a dream. So accommodating and always kept the house to tip top condition. Our rooms were cleaned each day and the pool towels were replaced. The food was DELICIOUS – we had nothing but good things to say about every meal and we were able to choose our own times to eat. The taxi driver Siad was also great – even picking us up late and dealing with our singing on the way back from a night out in Marrakech  I would highly recommend this villa to anyone and would happily return for another great holiday.

Thanks Rob!!
