Marrakech Nov 19 en route to Casablanca

A travel blog entry by jeankiwilush


the Riad was a beautiful hotel, small but far too zen for us!! When we arrived we had to go through the narrow streets and a local market full of noise and people. Hidden away in this alley exists this amazing riad, from the out side looks like nothing but on the inside....oooo la la, true moroccan style. we thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast on the …

High Atlas and Magical Marrakech

A travel blog entry by brownsltd


... and half keeled over, only to realise it was a toy snake and then could not stop laughing at myself... This was to happen to me again later that evening and whilst my reaction was not as extreme it again came close such was my paranoia about one of the cobras being shoved in my face!

The square was just starting to fill up and the atmosphere was building, we enjoyed dinner close by the square before heading back to the riad where we sat, feet dangling ...

Train to Tangier

A travel blog entry by laurenw_is


... prices our waiter was wearing a nice black suit and tie.

Having stayed as long as we could at the restaurant we decided to just head for the train station. On the way we realised we were actually quite close to Starbucks which was quickly deemed a much nicer place to wait out the day than the train station. Surprisingly it was one of the nicer Starbucks coffees I have had which was probably due to the fact that they had flat whites on the menu.

Marrakech madness

A travel blog entry by melanielacava


... It was amazing! We decided to treat ourselves to a nice dinner, and followed a recommendation from the riad manager to eat at a nearby rooftop restaurant with live music and traditional Moroccan cuisine, inlcuding tagine, pastilla, and pastilla au lait. It was fantastic!

The next day we explored the Marrakech medina, spending time in shops for carpets, scarves, tea glasses, lamps, and anything else you could imagine. It's very easy to get lost in this place, ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Jnane Tamsna Marrakech

    A relaxing stay in paradise


    We had an amazing time - we visited during a slow period and only had 4 other fellow guests. The grounds were lovely, there were 6 pools at our disposal, the food was excellent, and the staff so very accomodating and friendly. We speak English and just a little French, but the staff was patient and even taught us some Arabic. Meryanne was a gracious hostess and gave us a tour of her majestic home. Her daughter swam with us one day and was delightful, intelligent, and gracious. Meals were served at an un-hurried and relaxed pace, allowing you to linger over every tasty bite. We were impressed with everything and would definitely go back if we had the opportunity.

    Amazing place


    One of the most amazing properties I have ever stayed in (and I've stayed in hundreds of hotels). Staying here is more like visiting your own luxury home away from home than staying in a hotel or raid.

    The rooms are immaculately and individually designed, the grounds and pools are beautiful, the food is like eating at Gordon Ramsey's every night and the owners are lovely people. My girlfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights and felt completely relaxed and renewed after the holiday. If you want total luxury and relaxation look no further.

    An intangible experience


    Having read reviews on Jnane Tamsna I knew that I was in for a treat. That said, my expectations were exceeded on many fronts.

    Lovely place!


    Jname Tamsna turned out to be a very beautiful place; the 5 (!) swimming pools, the gardens, the appartements...all very tastful and romantic.

    The food was very good and the limited choice (as noted below) didn't bother me at all.

    The only "drawback" I could think of is the fact that most Marrakech taxidrivers don't seem to know where the guesthouse is, so taking a map to show them, would be recommended.

    Overall: I'd definitely recommend the place to anyone.

    Lovely setting but no service


    We stayed at Jnane Tamsna for 5 nights with friends. The grounds are undeniably gorgeous with a real feeling of being in the midst of 'nature' and the bedrooms and common areas extremely tastefully and originally decorated. However there is no 'service' to speak of in the conventional sense (particularly given the room rates) - this really lets the property down as it could be an excellent experience.

    Excellent food, plenty of space, great staff...a perfect break.


    If you're looking for a relaxing, luxurious place to stay with the personal touch, look no further. My wife and I stayed for 8 days; every meal was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. The owners have created a wonderful atmosphere where you can be as private or as social as you want. You can choose to mix with other guests (be it at one of the many swimming pools or at the pre-dinner drinks)or retire to one of the many quiet spots in the 15 acre site. The location of the Jnane Tamsna means that you're only a 10 min cab away from the City of Marrakech. This clearly isn't the cheapest of Riads, but it's worth every cent.

    Could have been better


    Upon arrival, we were greeted by staff who didn't seem to know what to do with us... Beautiful property and gorgeous rooms but could greatly improve upon the customer service. Front desk seemed confused by requests and made several errors. For room rates like this, you expect more.... Food was good and grounds are magnificent.

    Felt like a friend's home


    Loved this place, I only got to stay here 2 nights and honestly it was not my first choice, Christmas in this area most hotels expect you to book a few nights in a row but Jnane Tamsna was very nice about it, ended spending my first night here and after a week in other parts of Morocco, spent my 2nd to last night here.

    Great place to stay


    My husband my daughter and I stayed at the charming Jnane Tamsna, and it did meet all our expectations, very nice room and beautiful surroundings.

    Fatima (the guest relations) took good care of us and we loved the way she cared about us and made us feel like being home.Many thanks for all the help she provided.

    The place is wonderful for relaxing holidays, honeymooners and people wanting to be away from the hussel of the city.

    We hope we can make another trip on early march for our 15th marriage anniversary.

    Unbelievable experience!!!


    Stayed for 5 nights, just lovely, amazing rooms, stunning swimming pools, a real oasis in crazy marrakech. Great clay tennis court, staff very friendly & on the ball, nothing was a problem!

    Great food, though they had a guest chef from australia, alan wichert, so not sure if he is there fulltime, but some of the best food we've ever eaten, & all the fruits & vegetables come from there 4 organic gardens!!!

    Overall 10 out of 10, would definitely go back!!!
