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 …

Out of Africa ( south)

A travel blog entry by jkjohnson


... above hillsides swabbed with speckled grass and thorny bush; a towering soft tangerine dune with sensual lines sculpted by raging desert storms. She is the melodic call of a masked weaver during a streaky pink sunrise; the triumphant yip-yip-yip of a spotted hyena cheering on the night. Africa is horns, trunks, spotted fur, graceful bounders, ruthless carnivores and feathers of a thousand colours. Africa is ...

Cape Town: Feel the rhythm

A travel blog entry by jkjohnson


... up out of the surging swells of the south Atlantic. The air is heavy with swirling marine mist. Fynbos clings to the flanks of the steep slopes. The soundscape is dominated by the thundering rhythmic crash of the surf. Frigid green water washes the sugary white shore. We scamper along the edge of the continent, peering over the dizzying cliffs to the turbulent sea. Smashed Dutch and Portuguese shipwrecks are hidden in the black volcanic reefs below. ...

Marrakesh - Day 15: Final Day

A travel blog entry by tlburgess


... airport where my Dad would be waiting for me in 4 and a half hours. I would miss this land, miss the children, miss the riad and Khalid, Adel, Rachid, Amena and Hamid, but most of all I didn’t want to leave my friends. I didn’t think it was possible for me to bond with people like I did with Abi, Pav, Tess, Mary-Kate, Janet, Dave, Sam, Laura and Linh.

I know I will be back one ...

A right royal dead good day

... s off to the. 16th century mausoleum. The Saadian tombs were built for the descendants of the prophet Mohammed. The heat is now almost unbearable and we have arrived at tour bus time. We have to elbow our way through groups of numpty tourists ... This had better be good! More turquoise tiles and loads of graves, some inside and some out depending on the importance of the corpse. Seen it, done it, declined the T shirt, we don't ...

    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!!!
