Just returned from a week at Tigmi Mouzoun and I wanted to be the first to review the place and make sure it gets the positive review it deserves. The owners and housekeeper went absolutely out of their way to look after us from the very moment we arrived (smooth airport transfers and mint tea ready and waiting!) to the day of our departure (delicious Moroccan bread and cheese provided and even gifts to take home). I don't think I've ever been so well looked after!
It is a reasonable distance from Marrakech, away from any tourist areas but if you're looking for peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle, the location is perfect. The riad has a large amount of outdoor space, with a huge courtyard in the middle (which all the rooms are centred around) as well as extensive gardens with orange trees, chickens, sheep, a donkey and even a peacock. The views of the Atlas mountains are spectacular from the upstairs rooms (on a clear day) and all rooms have heating and air-con (with four of them en-suite). The trampoline and hot tub were well used during our stay and certainly added to our fun.
We chose not to hire a car but the owners helped us to organise lots of trips - to Ourika Valley, Essaouira, to Ouzud Falls - through a great local company which could accommodate a group of 8.
The only downside of our stay was the weather, which unfortunately was particularly bad for the week we visited in March - and meant we didn't get a chance to enjoy all the beautiful outdoor space and the pool. We'd definitely come back again (perhaps at a time of year with guaranteed sunshine) and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place. It provides excellent value for money with everything you could ever need and more, but the real highlight for me was the lovely people who went out of their way to make sure we had a good stay.
