A gorgeous hotel, with incredible helpful staff, and a set up that oozes relaxation. The luxe room we stayed in was perfect and felt like our own home from home. We also loved the adult only pool - there is a child friendly pool as well on the other side of the property, which I'm very glad about as the...

We went to Jardin des Douars for a relaxing week of winter sun. The hotel delivered 100%. The room was lovely, the food was excellent, and the pool is sublime. The garden surroundings are gorgeous and peaceful, and the staff are very friendly. We had to drag ourselves away to explore the medina, but we would've been happy if we'd...

Les Jardin Des Douars (LJDD) is situated about 13kms to the south-east from Essaouira. The surrounding area is relatively unspectacular however within the grounds of the hotel you find excellent gardens and well appointed buildings. The rooms are well kept and appointed. There are two heated swimming pools: one for families and the other for 'adults only'. The pools are...

The most perfect location to unwind for three or four days. Superb traditional style riad 10 minutes from Essasouira. Beautiful rooms, fantastic pools, excellent food and service. Enjoyed two dinners and four breakfasts whilst staying, all excellent. Hired a car, and the hotel made an ideal base for seeing a little more of the area. Would highly recommend to all.

Nature lovers will be in heaven with accommodations at Les Jardin des Douars, a guesthouse snuggled amongst the Essaouira hills. The natural landscape was formed by the current of the Oued Ksob River, as it truly is a geographical masterpiece. The guest house features beautiful gardens, where guests can relax under the Moroccan sun, which shines at least 320 days...

Great service, Beautiful place. We'll be back. If you could get some hybrid bikes in for us to explore the area, that would make for an ideal mix of relaxation and adventure from the secluded location of the hotel. Essaouira is a really fascinating place, hectic and full on, Les Jardin des Joures is the perfect antidote to all that...

This hotel caters brilliantly for adults, children and teens alike. As we have older children, we were rather nervous of small children running around noisily...but we needn't have feared. Separate pools and dining areas meant that we could enjoy quiet, calm, adult time. Surroundings are fabulous, staff are amazing, food wonderful ( menu could become a little repetitive if you...

Everything you could want to end a holiday on a high - gloriously lush & colourful gardens to wander through (fascinating number of flowers and plants that you'd see in luxury lodges down in South Africa), heated pool to dive into, warm place in the sun to read & relax, excellent food (although other guests said it had been less...
