I have stayed here for a business trip 4 days and the only thing I was thinking is how much I would have regret this booking if I would have been here on a privat trip and paid it out of my pocket. Definitely not to recommend for private vacations ! The villas are huge and basically have no atmosphere... More

I stayed in a private villa with four rooms. It was absolutely enormous and with our own swimming pool, kitchen and garden was completely over the top! It's definitely a chill out place, a great escape from the city. We ended up wanting to spend most of our time in the villa, but we did venture out...to the spa, and... More

Would you feel comfortable in a villa if you came back from breakfast to see an intruder, a strange man sitting in your room, pretending its his? And then repeated attempts to force into your villa by pushing front door harshly two hours later for five minutes at a time? 1) Please if you make the mistake of staying in... More

We stayed at the Hotel for 2 nights, and everything went wrong from beginning to end: they put us in the wrong riad, it took them an hour to take us to the riad riad (2 doors down), whenever we would ask for something, the order would either come incomplete, or never come. Some of my friends waited for an... More

I did not stay at the hotel, but I did play the golf course, on a recommendation from the Moroccan driver that we hired for the week's stay. He had previously taken us to Royal Marrakech and Samanah golf clubs, and asked why we had not tried Al Maaden. He said that he had taken other golfers there in the... More

To be honest the travel distance from the hotel to the main parts i.e. the markets is not a massive problem. You can organise taxi's and don't pay the driver any more than 100 MAD (9 Euro) and make sure you argue the price before you get in the cab. Also from the airport too. Don't pay anymore than 100...

Al Maaden is a series of beautiful houses set on a golf course. The resort is very tasteful with mature gardens. Our unit had a private pool, large sitting room, dining room, two bedrooms, private garden, several terraces. It's a few km southeast of Marrakech so you need a car. Our boys did not want to leave the pool. Bathrooms... More

I spent hours to find it because no indications were on the road for the project. I was keep on calling the reception number but no one of course answers. The villa was good but for the price we paid I though it was another level. It's far from everything. Very cold water on the pool, they could have warm... More
