This was my favorite hotel in Morocco and I stayed in a few while I was in Morocco for 2 weeks! I adored my stay at this hotel from the design to the friendly staff and the huge inviting pool. If you’re coming to Morocco, you’ve got to check out this Les Cinq Djellabas review before making your bookings.
Les Cinq Djellabas Review
This hotel has just 10 “lodges” which are all suites or luxury suites, meaning they have a living room and bathroom. It’s a mix of Moroccan and contemporary design with a lot of African accents like the animal skins (zebra!) and fur in the rooms.
There is a restaurant, game room, and pool on the huge garden that is over one hectare. The pool is massive and was nice to relax at since most other hotels had dipping pools. It takes 20 minutes to get here from the city center which isn’t much in a taxi here. With the distance you get more bang for your buck in terms of space.
Our room was so cute and had little touches that I love. It was nice to be somewhere so “eco” and natural after being in the cities in Morocco for so long. It’s a great place to relax.
My room had a big rainwater shower. Others have bathtubs so you’ll have to check with them what room to book for a tub. They all have showers, though. Rooms have WiFi, TV, A/C, robes and slippers, safes, and big fluffy duvets on King size beds.

Breakfast was big and Moroccan. The French have a huge influence in Morocco so you’ll notice that most places offer pastries. They are great, but if you want something healthy, breakfasts here aren’t really that. The Moroccan style pancakes remind me a lot of Indian roti. Orange juice in Morocco is known to be amazing and it really is, I could drink 3 glasses a day! They have a proper coffee machine and the coffee is great.
I love that the pool has a shallow bit you can lay out on and stay cool while you tan. Doesn’t get much better than that, except when they serve lunch by the pool.
We had a salad and gazpacho for a starter and for a main had the lamb (OMG so good, not Moroccan style to me but just French.. loved it), a burger because I was tired of Moroccan food which was so tasty. We shared a dessert too, yes at lunch ha! This was our let loose and relax day. The almond tart with caramel was so tasty.

There were some cute cats in the property that I gave some scraps too. I think they don’t want you to feed them (not sure) but I can’t help myself when a little kitty meows I have to feed it! They were so cute.
Overall, the place was perfect and Tia and I both thought it was our favorite place. Just nearby is a 4wd place you can rent quads which are like $60 for 3 hours or something along those lines. Very affordable. They can set up trips for you outside of their property as well, like to the desert.
