We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Sofitel Palais Jamai. On arrival we were greeted with mint tea, and told we had been given a complimentary upgrade to a Luxury Room. The room was fabulous with gorgeous views of the old medina and ruins of the Merenid Tombs. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony and watching the sun set behind the mountains and listening to the prayer calls.
Food can be a little pricey in the hotel but we had a lovely meal in the Moroccan restaurant and enjoyed the live music. It was lovely to have cocktails on the terrace of the bar with an amazing view of the Medina, however service at the bar is a little slow so allow yourself plenty of time if you have a dinner reservation to get to after your drinks.
The hotel organised us a great guide called Rasheed who took us around the Medina and showed us everything we wanted to see. You do get taken into the occasional carpet and leather shops but if you say from the beginning that you are not interested in this then it can be avoided. The heated swimming pool was lovely and the pool attendants were very helpful. I'd also recommend a trip to the hotel spa, we both had a hamman treatment which was great and very relaxing.
It's worth bringing a french phrase book as some of the reception staff/concierge don't speak English but it's a fabulous hotel and we are looking forward to returning soon, one of our most memorable holidays!
