One can only say "Wow!" (and "sorry I can't stay longer") after experiencing this exceptional property and service. "Wow" when entering the hotel room for the first time (and I was only staying in a "standard" room). "Wow" when venturing into the gardens and pool area. "Wow" about the exceptional service and offers to assist. Any shortfalls are only nitpicking but let's list them just to be totally transparent.
1) Only one elevator to the rooms .
2) No buffet breakfast (at least during my 2 night stay) -- everything was ordered a la carte. However, service was generally speedy and accurate. Try the Moroccan pancakes!
3) Fitness room is huge, with lots of brand new equipment. They have a small ant problem and so I decided not to do my stretches on the floor.
I heard the Spa was "very expensive" so I didn't venture in except to use the complimentary Fitness Room (only open from 9 a.m. - 9 pm).
None of the above detracts from my overall five star rating, and great desire to return here. And for those who might be wondering, although La Mamounia has the reputation (well deserved) for its full top-notch experience, Es Saadi Gardens - Palace can be half the price and thus a much, much better deal for basically the same experience.
