We stayed at Riad Libitibito, that I will return to later here on the site. It caught our eyes, through a menu for a restaurant and a hotel displayed in the street. The sign was tempting enough for us to look at the hotel, as well as taking a bite in the restaurant.
The Palais Donab was built as a private palace. The first owner was, according to our guide, a friend of one of the Morrocan kings.
The Palais Donab offers a small number of rooms, from a tiny budget single room, perfect for a lonely traveler looking for a bargain, to a Royal Suite at the ground floor with direct access to the beautiful pool area.
After one of our two meals at the restaurants we were so thrilled that one of the staff gave us a private guided tour of the palace. We watched the illuminated, sparkling blue water in the beautiful pool area in the mild Morrocan night. The pool area is open to the non-guests as well, at a low fee.
Then we were given access to the splendid Royal Suite with large comfortable sofas, a huge bed and the most beautiful bath room I have ever seen in my long life. It can be yours from €250-350 per night depending on season. Not a bad idea for a honey moon, if you ask me!!

Marrakech offers high-standard accommodation at much lower prices. Due to this Palais Donab is a riad I would not consider staying during a ordinary trip to Marrakech, but I would for a special occasion. For those of you that think these rates are comfortable low, I suggest you check out the website for more information.
