We are three British ladies on a long weekend in Marrakech. We were met at the airport by a helpful friendly driver and the hotel mini bus. We received a lovely welcome at the reception from Sharieff who spoke very good English and Fatima who explained the all inclusive part of our deal. We were offered cool wet towels and a drink and then shown to our Family Suite. Our suite was very spacious with lots of wardrobe space, televisions, well stocked refrigerator, safe, a tea and coffee making facility, overlooked the gardens and we could see the road. We would have preferred a pool view but decided the room was very nice and we were not going to be in it very much. We used the three restaurants, and all of them were excellent with very good service.
The pool area and gardens were very well set out with plenty of sun beds, towels and umbrellas.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel.
Everyone said "stay in a riad for the real experience", but we wanted a decent pool and after extensive research this was the only place within a decent walk of the action so we went with it. We stayed in a Junior Suite on the 3rd floor (the rooms all do), which had a real 'wow factor' on arrival - modern and stylish (the hotel is 5 years old). Huge room, big built in telly with Bose sound system, 2 open plan bathrooms and separate toilet and walk in closet.
The hotel did indeed have a very big pool and was 10 minutes from the main square and the new part of town (in the other direction). Breakfast was generous and plentiful (though I do miss my bacon!).
Overall it was a lovely 5 days that I would thoroughly recommend.
Great grounds, with two excellent swimming pools. Very good buffets at the main restaurant and very friendly and helpful staff. Very convenient for central Marrakech. Our two 7 year old daughters loved it.

We wanted relaxing, high standard accommodation with a Moroccan feel. This is exactly what we found. The Riad had good space, a beautiful pool area, high standard room with character, a good pool, good restaurant and staff that could not do enough to make our staff comfortable. We were accompanied by our 21/22 year old children who also found the Riad a great experience. The location was a 15 minute walk to the centre of the Medina or a short, well priced taxi ride. We were very pleased that we chose Dar Rhizlane just being outside the Medina because of the extra space compared with Riads located in the Medina and having the benefit of getting away from the noise, bustle and traffic. As well as being convenient for the Medina, Dar Rhizlane is also well located for the new town and good restaurants located there. We also had great assistance in hiring a tour guide for the Medina (essential for new comers) and for out of town tours to the Atlas Mountain area.
Things to be borne in mind. Marrakech is a noisy city and total silence is almost impossible to guarantee. You will hear some traffic noise from within the hotel area but nothing that could be considered intrusive. It is certainly quieter than Medina locations. Also, Morocco does not have European smoking restrictions therefore guests may smoke. This is the case throughout the city and we did not have any experiences at Dar Rhizlane that we, as non-smokers, found intrusive.
We will certainly return.

Just a short walk to the central square and souq's this hotel is in the heart of Marrakech, however you'd never know it.
Once inside its complete tranquillity from the outside.
We were a family with a 5 year old, and we loved the different pools, restaurant's, and walking distance proximity to everything.
The rooms were beautiful, spacious, and well equipped.
Can't fault it.
