"Its hard to write a review for Dar Zitoune because it was the best place we have stayed in many years travelling.
Firstly the staff on arrival were excellent, very relaxing, not rushing you through reception, we were given freshly squeezed ice cold orange juice, great as the temperature when we arrived was around 40C, and despite the air conditioning in the car it was very welcome.
We were then taken to our room which was nice and cool. The room itself, a bungalow in the beautiful gardens, had its own small terrace to sit at in private, and was furnished and decorated in typical Moroccan style and absolutely spotless, with water, fresh fruit, and cakes provided daily.
The gardens and swimming pool (3 available including the large hot tub) areas are beautiful, full of Mediteranean, and tropic flowers, bushes, and fruit, from the sunbed you could lean over and pick an orange or lemon. The main pool and hot tub were excellent, and very clean, and we mostly had them to ourselves during the trip. The poolside bar does drinks and ice creams, and the pool man was very nice, towels are provided so no need to bring any. If the pool man isn't there drinks can still be brought from the main bar by visiting reception.
We didn't use the gym, sauna, or spa, but they are also available around the pool area. The food was excellent, but that deserves its own review.
The staff were superb, and couldn't do enough to make it any more comfortable, and you can even have breakfast until as late as you want."

Cleavers from Aylsebury, August 2013

"Arriving at this hotel after a six hour drive was a bliss.
Behind the huge gate door you will find a small paradise. Magnificent garden with a huge outdoor pool where the birds flew down to drink water (they even had occupied the reception area!!!!) and turtles walking lazy among the bushes!!!
Upon our arrival we were treated to a nice mint tea.
The room was spacious with one of the best bathrooms we had during our Morocco trip. Fruit and sweets were waiting for us at the sitting area.
The breakfast was served near the pool and it was rich and delicious.
The staff was very helpful and cheerful.
I strongly recommend this hotel and would like to visit it again."

Rebecca from Athens, July 2013

"his is a wonderful hotel, where staff are welcoming and there is great attention to detail.
Upon arrival, our group was welcomed with tea and delicious biscuits in the reception area. The area was very comfortable and a lovely perfume from oil burners filled the air, but was not over-powering. We were taken to our rooms, which are set in the beautiful grounds and, once again a delicate smell, this time of roses could be appreciated.
The rooms are excellent; very comfortable, clean and extremely well equipped. Fresh flowers, fruit and biscuits were there to welcome us.
Breakfasts were the best I had whilst in Morocco and the evening meals were also of a very high standard.
There was an excellent service for those wanting refreshments at the poolside or in the shaded seating area. Altogether a very good place to stay."
