I don't usually write online reviews for places I have been to/hotels I have stayed in etc but I felt compelled to write this one for our stay in Maison MK in Marrakech. I've only just got back from Morocco and wanted to write something on trip advisor just to highlight what a beautiful place it is. I always think that photos describing an event on websites are airbrushed to perfection, using soft focus lens and carefully angled cameras. Maison MK does exactly what it says on the tin - the suites and dining room area/roof terrace etc look exactly like the professional photos on their website - it is truly amazing and beautiful. A chilled out, peaceful haven in such a busy and colourful city,
We felt welcome from the moment we arrived at the hotel. In fact, I felt reassured from the moment that i first contacted the owner Paul about the availability of accommodation. He answered all my questions - the sensible ones and the strange ones about how much sun I would get each day! Even advising on which airlines flew out of London, current weather, and whether we had any food allergies/dislikes.
Pauline, the manager at Maison MK, is an absolute diamond! she answered all of our questions, helped us out with suggestions on where to go out to eat - which were spot on and perfect.
The rest of the staff there were equally friendly, helpful and real fun to converse with. We had a couple of spa treatments while we were there which were relaxing and fun & both times that we stayed to have dinner at the hotel was delicious and authentic Moroccan cooking - the tagines were amazing.
it was the little personal touches during our stay that really made it for us..the rose petals on our beds when we first arrived...the full-loaded ipod in our room to listen to while we were indoors or take about with us. The mobile phone with credits to use for when we were out - with the hotel's number on there in case we got lost exploring the souks.
The fresh pot of coffee left outside our door every morning...breakfast was served from 8am to any time after we got up - no set time for it finishing.
4pm was fresh mint tea and Moroccan cake time. Every day - there would be complimentary freshly baked Moroccan cakes and pastries and mint tea laid out for us in the court yard.
All in all - a truly amazing experience. It felt like home away from home...and if and when I make it back to Marrakech, I would definitely stay at Maison MK again and will be recommending it to everyone I know!
