Nice, quaint, comfortable hotel. It was a little tricky to find, so I had to have some teenagers show me to the hotel and then they complained when I did not give the "enough" money, which was annoying, but I expected that. Maybe if the hotel provided more clear directions about how to get to the hotel from the main Marrakech roads, that would have been nicer. But overall, I had a great stay.

We had initially arrived in Marakech 4 days before having to check in here. Our original Riad (Riad Bamileke) near Derb Debacci was a nightmare. We had scoured expedia for a deal and stumbled across the wonderful Dar Les Cigones. We booked early on the same day we checked in around 10am and headed over at 2pm to check in.
The staff here are so great, we had a warm welcome at the hotel - tea and pastries and were then taken to our room. The hotel supplies a book of recommended locations and restaurants, even excursions and helped whenever we needed a taxi. The room was great and most importantly quiet. No noise from the staff in the early hours and they honestly couldn't do enough for us. My girlfriend had an upset stomach on our second night and the guy on the door downstairs called one of the off duty members of staff to try and source some prunes and figs to help from the souks. 20 minutes later the guy showed up at the door, fruit in hand.
Regarding the hotel itself, it's located near the old Jewish quarter, directly opposite Palais Badii. Short walk to the souks and also has a lovely roof top terrace for a warm sunny breakfast.
If you've not been to Marakech before, it can be an exhausting experience and having the right hotel/riad to come back to and chill is very important. I would happily recommend this hotel to anyone!

Very friendly staff, exceptionally clean rooms, the spa is amazing, walking distance to most places in the centre of marakesh. Many food places within the same block of the hotel, the hotel has an amazing Moroccan restaurant, its a must to try it, the breakfast is great, fantastic place to stay during the winter period.
Close by to some funky clubs, cool shisha places are within 2 mins walk, Jama Al Fna is a 10 minutes walk.
Best thing to do is book the hotel car to drop you and pick you up from the airport, obviously slightly more expensive than your usual on the street taxi, who rip you off!! but at least you know what you are paying for!
Stayed here with my wife for one week during October half-term. Hotel was a long way from fully occupied, making it very quiet and private (which suited us perfectly). Hardly anyone used the pool and at times it felt as though we were the only guests. Perhaps the only downside was that the restaurant was not open, although food was served around the courtyard and in the sky-bar. Tip: Club sandwich comes with fries and it's enough for two to share. Room was immaculately presented and was made-up every day. No issues with the room apart from the hair-dryer which was faulty. We had a balcony room overlooking the pool area; great. Four minutes walk is the local Carrefour which has a supermarket, cash-point facilities, food court and various shops - everything you need. The Medina is a taxi ride away, and takes between 10 and 20 minutes depending on the time of day. It's easy to catch a cab from right outside the hotel - just stand at the entrance drive to the hotel and wait 2 minutes for one to go by (Cab drivers are constantly on the look-out for tourists and will beep to attract your attention even if you're not looking for one).
We spent the day time around the pool - easy to do given that temperature was in the 30's - and went into central Marrakesh for the evening. Great place and easy enough to handle the outstretched hands constantly asking for money. You just have to go with the flow! Don't get stressed. If all else fails, find a cafe seat and take a breather.

We had four very relaxing nights at Dar Sabra with our two children (aged 2 and 5). The family room was perfect, the staff very smiley and helpful, and the hotel and grounds very striking design-wise. The whole place is very serene and calm (but still child friendly!)
