The Tajmakane is a beautiful and small ryad located 10mn from the center of Marrakech and 20mn from the airport. It is a peaceful place to relax after visiting the booming city of Marrakech and its surroundings.
The Tajmakane is nicely decorated and has 5 stylish bedrooms. The two ones located on the ground floor are both located in the garden by the pool which is perfect and give a feeling of privacy especially the Mazala bedroom/bungalow.
The garden is beautiful as well full of flowers, lemon tree, cactus, birds and butterflies.
The owners came to pick us up at the airport and they are extremely friendly, gentle and discreet people. They love children so our 3 years old daughter had lots of fun playing with them.
They are cultured people so we learnt a lot about the country, its culture, traditions and we spent few evenings discussing and chating in the leaving room with them. They are great people and extremely kind.
The food was great we had plenty to eat for the breakfast with local cakes, pancakes, etc.... We ate also at nights there and we discovered many local dishes that were just delicious. We ate outside during the day at lunch in few occasions but the food was not so good and fresh even in more expensive restaurants.
The owner organised for a local guide to pick us up at the house to do daily visits of the city and the surroundings which was very handy and not so expensive. This way we did not worry about taxis and the like and we had a good time with the guide who told us all about this beautiful country, its people, culture, history, etc...
In summary this is the perfect spot for travelers who want to visit Marrakech but also want to relax in a quiet spot away from the big hotels and tourist areas.
We had a great time at the Tajmakane and we would like to thank again Ali and Nadia for their warm hospitality.
