Worst ever treatment. Booked through our tour operator who descried it as a fantastic experience that would consist of a hammam, followed by a clay body wrap and then a massage. The treatment to last 2 hours in total. Picked up by taxi and taken to a back street where we were ushered out into an alley and directed to... More

We booked the sister riad, Lotus Perle but was taken to Lotus Privilege by a wonderful staff named Mohammad. We were awed by the courtyard and the location is waaay better. It's within 10 minutes walk to Jamaa El Fnaa square but we usually took longer as there are lots of shops on the way to the square. We were... More

Absolute rip off for the Hammam. Our tour operator booked this for us so we were expecting a top notch experience. From the courtyard, everything looks quite nice, but the nightmare started when were taken in for our treatment. We paid around 600dhs for 45 min hammam and 1 hour massage. The spa facilities were poorly thought out and in... More

We had 12 people doing dinner here and the entertainments include traditional Morocco song, music, belly dancing and Sufi dancing. The street entrance was not very impressive. But when we entered the court yard, we can tell it is a nice place for a dinner party. The dinners include endless wine and soda, starters, a generous main course and a... More

I didn't stay at the hotel, I only reviewing the spa facilities. I booked a luxury spa which consisted of a 2 hour body scrub and massage through Expedia for the Les Bains de Marrakech. Long story short, the 3rd party tour company didn't book me at my chosen spa but at a dodgy looking spa in the city. The... More

A perfect oasis. Huge suites, clean and airy. Friendly, helpful and discreet staff. Delicious breakfasts underneath an orange tree. All within the old walled city. Each suite has it's own character and the whole riad is like an art gallery with genuine original artefacts.

My husband and I visited in early June 2015. Originally we have booked to a sister riad Lotus Perle but were taken directly to Lotus Privilege. Absolutely amazing Riad, very quiet, tasteful, spacious and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful even with the language barrier. Our room was amazing on the terrace with outdoor seating. The riad was... More

Food was average and overpriced and service slow. Error was made on the bill and the staff chased us down the alley way to try and get more cash. Very aggressive. Maybe coincidence but the one and only time I used my debit card in Morocco was here and just checked bank to find fraud transactions every day since......

My girlfriend and I stayed at this riad in March this year. The staff we met were lovely and the manager very efficient but compared to other places in the city its not particularly good value. Food is very expensive and drinks quite expensive and the décor and fittings look good in photos from a far but actually are pretty... More
