Nice house, great and friendly staff. Loved everything about it.
(Btw, do not try to rely on GPS when driving around town - doesn't work)
Really pleased that you loved your stay and the team do work hard to make sure our clients have an enjoyable holiday. ( yes driving can be fun :) )
Property is worth every penny and the staff are extremely polite and always smiling...
Other than minor things that could have being avoided with better communication the property is worth every penny and the staff are extremely polite and always smiling. I would recommend to rent a car BUT AVOID DRIVING IN THE MEDINA (the old city) cause having a driver 24-7 can get price.
Our 3 children and us have spent a very nice time
The property was very comfortable; with 3 bedroom with immense luxurious bathrooms (1 separated).
The garden was so interesting with lemon and olive trees and roses and of course the private pool. The living room was maybe a little bit smaller in comparison to the other rooms; but fine.
The housekeeper was really helpful and discret.
We had a wonderful holiday and family time.
Well appointed, spacious, charming and welcoming stay at El Hara
We had a truly lovely family holiday at this charming villa just outside Marrakesh. We were with our two young children (6 and 4) and wanted a relaxing week in the sun before the Winter chills came! The position of the villa was perfect for our needs - plenty of space, cool shady areas for when the sun was hot (which thankfully it was for most of the week), pool, privacy and the luxury of not having to cook or wash up provided by the wonderful housekeeper and her sister. The rooms are huge and airy and tastefully decorated with Moroccan furnishings which gives you a sense of place. There are also lovely quiet areas where you can escape and read a good book! The pool was a huge hit especially with the children and we were all in it at least twice a day. Gardens are walled to give you total privacy and well-tended giving you a lush oasis. All our needs were taken care of by the lovely Karima and her sister. She organised two trips into the city for us and, having two fussy eaters in our party, Karima was able to cater to their more 'pizza and nuggets' palette! The gardens form a network around the centre of the villas which are lovely to take a stroll around in the morning or early evening - so peaceful and beautiful with lime and olive trees in abundance. Our two trips into the centre of Marrakesh were great fun. We were not sure how our two children would react to such a totally different city experience but they found the old Medina and Souks fascinating and the street sellers and vendors, whilst being very friendly and trying to get us to buy things, were also respectful and made the whole trip a lot of fun. We had been to Marrakesh twice before (before having children) and we were pleased to see that some of our favourite eateries were still there - Terrasse des Espices in the Souks and The Old Post Office in the New Town. All in all a superb week in a lovely villa, delicious food, warm weather, with happy and entertained children (the pool) and looked after so well by Karima. I hope we will be back.
Stayed in the villa for a week with a group of friends, and we loved the place. The house and the private garden was wonderful. Karima, the housekeeper took great care of us and Hannah, the cook, made us delicious meals every day. Rob, the host, was very helpful and responded quickly to all queries. Highly recommend. Hope to return soon!
Domain Akhdar 😍
Domain Akhdar is an absolutely stunning villa, the bedrooms, bathrooms were spacious, comfortable and clean, We loved the layout and interior design of the villa. We had a really relaxing time during our stay, it was well equipped and Karima and Hanaan, the housemaid and cook were very discreet,helpful and pleasant.
The few drawbacks we found were:
The pool was a little small, as we were a family of 4 adults and one child
The location of the villa was approx 25 mins to Marakech town centre, as the villa is on a rural path, the local taxis find it hard to get there. The approx cost for us to get to Jemaa el Fnaa was £50 return
The villa is in a gated compound, although the villa is maintained well, the communal pool and areas are a bit shabby and rundown, we chose to stay in the comfort of our own villa
I would have preferred a self catering option, however due to the location of the villa, this would have proven difficult to get out and about for grocery supplies, so for this reason we chose the half board option.
Overall an absolutely fantastic time was had at the villa!!
Thank you for the review and I am really pleased you had a fantastic time.
With the villa having a private pool and being so beautiful, and quiet it has made it very hard to make the clubhouse a vibrant space because nobody wants to go their even after many years of funding a bar etc so now it is just a quiet space with a pool. The 50 Euro is for a private driver in a fully air conditioned MPV who will pick you up and drop you around town as you desire so not to be confused with the run down, no a/c taxis of Marrakech but of course clients are open to choose which mode of transport they would prefer.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Akhdar in the future.
Marrakech is a city in the grip of a delirious imagination. A feverish dream scape of honeycombed alleys and minarets quivering in the moonlight and haunted by the restless creatures of a visionary carnival that has lasted for a thousand years and shows no sign of stopping now. Marrakech is one of the worlds enchanted places where time becomes suspended and, through its open door, you catch a glimpse of the past so rich and so remote and yet so palpable.
The Marrakech Royal Golf Club is the oldest golf club in Morocco, it is constantly being renovated and improved and it also happens to be one of His Majesty King Hassan ll's favorite courses.
It is situated at the feet of the snow-covered Atlas mountains and is embellished by a profusion of cypress, eucalyptus, palm, olive, orange and apricot trees.
It is an 'English style' course with strategically placed bunkers protecting its greens and testing tall trees and palms.
Other Activities: Quad Bike On the Lake (2h) + Lunch
Golf: Riads in Marrakech : The Golf d’Amelkis is the third most important golf course in Marrakech, and is located on km. 12 on the Route de Ouarzazate. The course comprises 27 holes, with a 72 par and a total length of 6.657 meters. It was created by the landscape architect Cabell B. Robinson and is quite probably the most visually striking course in the city.
The round is rather technique, possibly the most technique among the three golf courses in Marrakech, and enjoys numerous bunkers and artificial lakes. There are very few trees along the course, just a few palm trees here and there, but it has a nice atmosphere that seduces and challenges golfers of all levels.
The course is stimulative challenging, quite hilly, dented, with multiple blind starts, pitfalls to be avoided at every hole and 7 lakes judiciously laid out, as well as picturesque bunkers made of crushed red bricks. There are three rounds with a total of 27 holes, although there is a project for an extension of 9 holes, which will result in a total of 36 holes. The Blue round is 3.156 meters long, the Red round 3.141 meters, and the Green round, 3.170 meters.
This course is only 10 minutes from the Villas in Marrakech on the Domaine Akhdar and can be booked directly from your villa and we can arrange private transport, caddy and lunch.
