Had a great time at al Marrakesh, booked the entire house out for a family event. Nice quiet area, and close by to all amenities. Property has a Moroccan theme throughout, and is good value for money.

We booked a self-catering unit and we were very disappointed at state of the rooms. I think the rooms look much nicer on the internet than they really are. Kitchenette practically outside (like a sheltered extension of the house) which made it difficult for me to work at night, whole unit was extremely dirty, uncomfortable bed & very small so... More

Al Marrakesh is a lovely peaceful and quiet place with very friendly staff and nice clean facilities. Me and my husband spent three nights at Al Marrakesh Guest House. We enjoyed the town of Ballito and took many walks along the beach. I recommend it wholeheartedly!

I got what I paid for and a bit more. Very attentive staff. The bed was very comfortable. All that was a bit confusing was the coffee plunger one day without a teaspoon, then the next a teaspoon and no plunger.

I had a very peaceful stay at al Marrakesh, check-in was very easy, and I was never bothered by any staff. Reception was friendly, and I would definitely recommend al Marrakesh as a means of accommodation.
