- Peaceful rural location
- Beautiful gardens
- Two pools
- Close to the Coast
Located in the hills 15 minutes outside of Essaouira, the charming Jardin Des Douars has 26 en-suite rooms and suites. Set in beautiful walled gardens the hotel has been cleverly laid out to ensure couples have their own areas to relax whilst families have plenty of space to run free.
The bedrooms are all spacious with air-conditioning and safes. The walls are finished in deep earthy tones and the bathrooms are traditional tadelakt and include mini hammam kits. Luxury rooms have fireplaces and deep baths (other rooms just have showers). Our favourite family rooms are the Douarias, 2 bedroom bungalows set in the grounds.
During the day you’ll find it very tempting to just relax by the pool; for families there is a large swimming pool with shallow area for younger children. For adults and older children there is a sophisticated infinity pool which is heated in winter. Around both you’ll find plenty of loungers and comfy seating. Overlooking the children’s pool is a Berber tent which makes a good hang out for teens. In the evenings you can eat at the hotel’s atmospheric restaurant or you can take a transfer to Essaouira (for around 175mad return).
WIFI is available in many of the communal areas, the signal can be a little patchy but it’s fine if you just need to check your emails. When planning your holiday please consider a 3 night minimum stay policy applies all year, with 5 nights being a minimum in peak times.

We had an amazing time thank you very much! The riads and hotels were outstanding and everything went as clockwork. We had really bad rainfall on the day we transferred to Marrakech but our driver didnt give up and we eventually found a passable road ( which I think was the last possible one to get us there!)
Thank you so much!

We would very much like to give our feedback regarding our trip to Morocco because it was absolutely fantastic. From start to finish there was nothing to fault, Mustafa our guide in the mountains was great - discrete when necessary but delightfully eloquent and informed about a wide variety of subjects. The food in the mountains was superb ( though the toilet facilities in the gites d'etape left a lot to be desired!!) The guest house Dar Adrar was beautiful with amazing views. The riad in Marrakesh was lovely and such a welcome respite after the hectic souks.....and as for the surfing.....it was fab!!!! Mohammed our instructor was patient and so super cool....a real gem and great with our children.
All in all it was wonderful and we were all sad to leave. We will definitely consider using Tourdust again and wont hesitate to recommend you to our friends.
