After spending 5 nights in a hotel in Marrackech for £280 in total, we were dissapointed when we arrived at Caravanerai. My husband and I spent 7 nights at this hotel for our honeymoon in October 2009. Upon arrival, we were taken to the Majorelle Suite which is lovely - beautiful Morrocan furnishings and a cute pool with trees and... More

We stayed in several riads in the medina. Caravan Serai is located in the palmerai, far away from the medina, it's a beautifull place to stay, but that's all. Too expensive for what it is, the staff is always nervous, and running, the food is not good at all, I'm glad I've been there so I could see it in... More

I came here for my honeymoon and then returned with two kids! I love Morrocco anyway but this hotel is a hidden gem. The staff are friendly and it changed ownership last time I was there so I hope the charm hasn't been lost. The food is great too.There are 17 rooms/suites and double that of staff. It is discreet,... More

I have to somewhat agree with one of the reviews below which compares this place to Fawlty Towers - service was really variable! Sometimes staff was really nice and helpful, sometimes they really didn't seem to care, which is not as good as I would expect from a hotel I consider fairly expensive. It seems like the owners are never... More

Winter in Morocco is not as warm as you might expect but when the sun shines the whole country comes alive with colour. We had a dreadful flight with Atlas Blue - very cramped seats, over an hour late taking off with no explanation, a hot cabin and loo paper running out half way through the flight. The Carvanserai is... More

At these prices I expected paradise and experienced Fawlty Towers. The hotel is a delight for the eyes, but the service received fell short of expectation. The hotel is situated several miles from the centre of Marrakech and is certainly off the beaten track! Felt imprisoned in the compound . The service was very disappointing and requests for anything -... More

We stayed in one of the 2 suites that has its own pool - what's not to like about that? Arriving is a bit weird as it looks like a warzone (lots of half built / half demolished buildings) but once you're through the gates it is magic. Really relaxing, very chilled place. We booked on a B&B basis and... More

We didn't stay in Caravan Serai, just went for the day pool & lunch package at €32 per person. Overall the setting is stunning, so well thought out, the staff of the hotel were lovely and the lunch buffet, well dunno what others are talking about, it was fabulous and we're all pretty fussy foodies, so don't take that comment...

Caravan Serai is a beautiful building and the decor has been done quite nicely BUT in comparison to other hotels I have stayed in in Marrakech - this is certainly NOT luxury. I have a whole list of little complaints that add up to an overall bad impression. Apparently there have been new owners recently and it would seem to... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Evoking the ancient stopping places of the travelling merchants, the CaravanSerai is symbolic of the other face of Morocco. The interior courtyards and secret corners are inspired by the traditional Berber villages. In luxurious simplicity the 16 bedrooms and suites are decorated in a refined ethnic style. The Hammam, with its tadelakt plaster columns and its great pool subtly lit by shafts of light, is considered to be one of the finest in Marrakech. ... more   less
