About Hotel Dar Zitoune
The Riad Dar Zitoun 'House of the Olives' is a delightful place, located just to the west of Taroudannt. It is really a small hotel with plenty of facilities and some lovely rooms amongst the garden of orange trees. If you are looking for a more luxurious place to stay than the Palais Salam and do not mind being a short distance out of town then the Dar Zitoun would be an excellent choice. Ideal for fly-drive itineraries and those of you wanting a quiet place to stay not too far from Agadir Airport. Once through the gate you are in the land of "a thousand and one nights", in a setting that is typically Moroccan; relax on the locally made berber furniture in the beautiful gardens, shaded by olive and citrus trees, or swim in the magnificient pool, designed in the shape of a moorish gate.
Accommodation: There are 14 beautifully appointed bungalows and 8 suites, set in 4 acres of landscaped gardens with olive, papaya and citrus fruits. (suites are located nearer to the pools). Rooms and suites are decorated in warm Berber colours with good quality attention to detail in the fixtures and fittings. All rooms have a/c, satellite TV, safe, phone and internet access. Bungalows can take an extra bed or cot; suites may accommodate up to 4 persons - for a large party Senior Suites (60 sqm) can interconnect with adjoining Junior Suite (40 sqm).
Facilities: Large Swimming pool (20m, unheated) and good-sized heated jacuzzi pool (7m x 3.5m) a fitness centre and spa, excellent restaurant, cosy bar, boutique and parking. The elegant restaurant offers a fusion of Moroccan and European dishes and in the evening you can enjoy a cocktail with live moroccan music in the pleasant cellar bar.
Spa Dar Zitoune offers beauty and body care services: hammam, massage, skin care, make up and henne. The henne on the hands and the feet is one of the beauty symbols for moroccan women, all of these aesthetic services are available on the spot.
Transfer Time from Airport:
"A great time was had by all thanks and rekindled my long term fondness for Morocco, hopefully I will be booking a High Atlas trek with you before too long as the mountains always tempt me but unfortunately the kids are never so keen. My favourite hotel was Dar Daif which oozed character, wife preferred Trois Chameaux and kids Dar Zitoune but all were great with no hitches, good food and very welcoming. Obviously not your responsibility but I was unaware that the arch at Legzira collapsed last September and the primary reason for going to Mirleft was to photograph the large arch so it was quite a surprise to find a huge pile of rubble at the end of the beach howerver nature is always full of surprises."
