Our Guest Reviews

Dar Z5 Recommended by 100% of our customers (15 reviews)
Average rating 9.3/10


Les arbres et la végétation. La famille de Jamila, Mohamed et Abdel-Ali nos hôtes. L’emplacement.
Emplacement parfait, personnel au top, privatisation parfaite pour 5/6 personnes. piscine chauffée, petit déjeuner tout est bien.

Quand nous avons eu besoin de lui, Simo de la conciergerie Villanovo a toujours répondu présent.
Pour les personnes un peu âgées, il manque une rampe pour sortir de la piscine (marche très haute), et des doubles rampes dans les escaliers.


- Merci pour vos commentaires, les aménagements ont été faits en conséquence.

- Thank you for your comments, the adjustments have been made accordingly.
The staff - Mohammed and Jamila - were so nice and serviceminded. Jamila cooked the most wonderful Moroccan foods and kept the place nice and tidy and Mohammed helped with various practical matters and each night he lit a fire for us when the temperature dropped.

The place has a perfect layout: The pool is beautiful and was nice and warm and inviting for late night or early morning swims, even when outside temperature was low. Kids just looooved the pool! The rooms were nicely decorated: Authentic, simple and stylish. The garden next to the pool is lush and provides a beautiful natural setting in the middle of a bustling city. The small roof terrace invites to enjoy the sun and sights of life on the rooftops of Marrakech. The riad is placed in a quiet area at very close (walking distance) to the main attractions.

All in all we obviously really enjoyed this beautiful oasis!
Maison très bien située et très jolie.
Djamila et Mohamed sont très gentil, très serviable et accueillant.
Les repas sont excellents
La chambre du haut mériterait un rafraîchissement au niveau de la salle de bain.

Merci pour vos commentaires. La salle de bain ne nous semble pas altérée après contrôle. Le style en constante évolution respecte l’âme du riad. Mais nous tiendrons compte de votre point pour le prochain entretien trimestriel.

Thank you for your comments. The bathroom does not seem to have been altered after our inspection. The constantly evolving style respects the soul of the riad. But we will take your point into account for the next quarterly maintenance.
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans votre Riad. Mohamed et Djamila sont vraiment parfaits.
Merci et sûrement à bientôt.
Perfect location in the Medina close to good restaurants and shops.
Beautiful swimming pool with warm water (we were there in august).
Master bedroom spacious and well decorated.
The living areas functioned very well.
Pleasant staff and good food.
The villa needs a main cleaning.
The internet only worked in the living areas, not in the bedrooms.
The two bedrooms upstairs were not of the same standard as the master bedroom: the aircon did not work well in one of the bedrooms and the smallest bedroom was not usable because there was no aircon (we were there in august).

We stayed for more than 4 weeks and were NOT offered, as it said when we booked the Riad:
- half a day in the Riad oasis in the heart of the Agafay with discovery lunch or dinner
- a signature dinner at the Riad
- a massage at the Riad

owner's response :
We're obviously sorry that your experience wasn't perfect, and we'll do everything we can to make sure it doesn't happen again.
- This riad is a wonderful oasis-garden and we do our utmost every morning to sweep up the leaves and earth and clean the floors.
- The fibre works in all the common areas; and a repeater is available for the downstairs master suite.
- The small room without air conditioning is no longer proposed as a bedroom; we have transformed it into a spa equipped with air blowers. The suite upstairs is never presented as being identical to the master suite downstairs, but it has been designed with the same style and charm, and is much appreciated.
-The air conditioning (reversible) on the first floor was set to hot and not cold...the air conditioners are recent and work very well.
- You received a free diner at your arrival as it's not possible to go to the desert in August (more than 50°c).

Bellissima vegetazione
La camera al piano superiore meno curata, molto calda, aria condizionata non in tutta la camera ma solo in una parte.
La terrazza sopra non curata. Un gatto ha fatto i suoi bisogni che non sono stati ripuliti.

Réponse du propriétaire :
Climatisation : ce problème n'a pas été remonté à notre équipe, qui redoublera de vigilance à l'avenir pour aider les clients à régler la climatisation. Depuis l'installation de la nouvelle climatisation avec brasseur d'air, le dispositif a été testé lors de fortes chaleurs (45-50°c) par d'autres clients qui ont été satisfaits de son efficacité. ll s'agit peut-être d'un mauvais réglage.

Terrasse supérieure : l’équipe du Riad veille à l'entretien des parties intérieures et extérieures. Il est possible que l'équipe soit passée à côté de déjections de chats, ceux-ci sont présents sur de nombreux toits à Marrakech. L’équipe familiale qui s’occupe du riad est dévouée : désireuse de bien faire et de rendre service, elle pourra donc agir si vous leur demandez, pour que votre séjour se déroule au mieux.
Son confort
Le personnel au petit soin, la beauté et l’emplacement du Riad
Climatisation, lave linge qui ne fonctionne pas. Une des chambres étant en plein soleil la climatisation est indispensable.

Réponse du propriétaire :
Il y a eu une panne de secteur dans le quartier (climatisation et lave-linge impactés), mais les brasseurs d'air ont continué de fonctionner. Depuis, des travaux ont été réalisés (terminés le 29/05/2023), nouveau lave-linge, ajout d'une climatisation réversible neuve dans la chambre de la terrasse, ajout d'un store UVSCREEN.
Localisation et surtout service du personnel, notamment Djamila qui est adorable, très serviable, efficace et extremement dévouée. Cuisine extrêmement raffinée à la marocaine et abondance de petits gateaux en permanence....
Le linge de lit très confortable et les serviettes,
La végétation superbe qui apporte fraicheur et petits oiseaux c'est sublime!!!
La wifi !!! Quel dommage de ne pas pouvoir être connecté normalement, j'ai été obligée d'aller dans un hôtel pour travailler correctement.
A voir également le rangement de pot de peinture sur la terrasse, échelle à côté de la piscine (pas top comme déco), motte de terre d'un ancien pot par terre, et la peinture qui aurait besoin d'un rafraichissement à différents endroits.
La maison était parfaite pour nous 3 mais je pense qu'elle manque de sanitaires si l'on est 8... D'autre part la petite chambre du haut est un peu sombre (agrandir la fenêtre et vitrer la porte)
Le service de Mohamed et Djamila, absolument parfait. Ils ont été adorables, ils ont su nous conseiller et nous assister dans tous nos déplacements. Ils ont géré nos réservations dans les restaurants. Ils se sont rendus disponibles pour nous aider au mieux avec des enfants en bas âges.
Merci à eux d'avoir pu rendre notre séjour au sein du Riad aussi agréable.
Le wifi. Très mauvaise qualité nous ne captions pas internet.
La végétation, la piscine, la situation géographique,

Mohamed, notre interlocuteur de Villanovo a été à notre écoute
Peut-être un peu de réparation (qq portes, lunettes des WC, ...)
Très beau patio, piscine agréable et belle végétation. Bien située et très calme.

Très Content d’avoir réserver avec VILLANOVO, très bon service et bonne réactivité. Également de très bons conseils pour les animations
Deux vrais chambres mais la troisième n’est ni très confortables et ni très pratique et trop petite pour être une vrai chambre.
