Les Jardins de la Medina - Tropical Oasis in Marrakech

You would never know this beautiful hotel and THAT garden were behind the heavy wooden door in the Medina. 

We received a very warm welcome of lovely Moroccan tea, cakes, and dates. 

Our room was the garden suite which was excellent. Opulent, luxurious with private outside terrace and loungers. There was a fruit basket, fresh flowers, refreshments (even Nespresso maker!), cakes and a basket with pool towels, straw hats, and maps which was a lovely touch. 
Lunch was absolutely delicious, the best food I have had in Marrakech during our 4-day stay! We had a delicious goat cheese salad for starters, chicken tagine with olives (yum) and selection of mixed platter for main. The dessert was a selection of fresh mint, vanilla, and chocolate ice cream and pineapple, raspberry and mango sorbet. Without a fail, the best dessert I have ever tasted. I still dream about it; it was that good! The food was simply outstanding, many congratulations to the talented chef Sanaa.
Absolutely picture-postcard garden. Tropical. Exciting. Staying here is like living in a bird sanctuary, surrounded by palm, banana and orange trees, birds chirping away and tortoises strolling through the grounds.

Breakfast was a selection of continental and traditional delights. Very tasty. Cheeky sparrows were trying to steal food off the breakfast tables!

There is a roof terrace with chairs and loungers to kick back and enjoy ' dolce far niente'.

On the day of our departure, the hotel manager Luc invited all guests for complimentary drinks and canap├ęs complete with traditional music. It was a perfect ending to our stay in Marrakech before we said our goodbyes and headed to the airport. 
Very helpful and attentive staff, immaculate rooms, outstanding food, great ambiance, and the most beautiful tropical garden you could hope for having on your doorstep! I sincerely recommend this 5-star hotel.
A big thank you to all the lovely staff who looked after us, you made our last day in Marrakech truly unforgettable. Shukran.
