15 of the Best Hotels with Pools in Marrakech

The Best Hotel Pools in Marrakech's Medina

The majority of our Marrakech hotels can be found in the Medina, but this does not necessarily mean that there is no outside space. You’ll often find a hidden courtyard with plunge pool plus a roof terrace with stunning views over the city.

Riad al Bushra

  • Riad al Bushra is located in the heart of the Medina, and as well as a plunge pool for cooling off, it offers a fab roof terrace and all suite accommodation. It's also well know for its friendly vibe and is great value too.
  • Riad Jaaneman is right in the heart of the medina, and it too offers a tropical plant filled courtyard with plunge pool for cooling off. The five luxurious rooms are traditional in style and the vibe is understated elegance throughout.

Riad Sapphire

  • Riad Sapphire & Spa is a seriously stylish option with eight beautiful suites and a larger than average pool. Plus there's a hammam and delicious moroccan food.
  • English owned and run Riad dar Zaman is another central pick. The four chic rooms are traditional in style, plus there's a leafy courtyard with all important plunge pool and roof terrace with views over to the Atlas Mountains.

The Best Hotel Pools in The Palmeraie

If you venture just twenty minutes from the city centre you’ll find yourself in the leafy Palmeraie district. Here, outside space and a decent sized garden is the norm, so pretty much every property has a pool – it’s more a case of sorting out the best hotels to stay in.

Les cinq djellabas

  • Les Cinq Djellabas offers a spot of unashamed barefoot luxury. 10 eco-friendly African style thatched lodges offer sumptuous interiors and all are dotted around a divine swimming pool – which is heated during the cooler winter months.
  • Dar Zemora is one of the Palmeraie's best kept secrets. Here you'll find just six beautiful rooms, gorgeous gardens, fantastic food and pool surrounded by teak loungers.

The Most Romantic Hotels with Pools in Marrakech

For those wanting to treat their loved ones to something special, and need a pool to tick all the boxes then we'd suggest:

  • Dar Rhizlane is located in L'Hivernage district, a lively spot just outside the centre. Here there's a spa, tranquil gardens and pool, plus gourmet cuisine, and no young children in sight!
