“an amazing place to stay in Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

when we booked this hotel we were not familiure with it at all. we chose it because
of its great location and the photos of the room.
wow, were we ever overwhelmed by the facility. Yes we have stayed in five star hotels
and yes we have had great experiences, however, nothing, and i do mean nothing ever
reached to totally great experience of this hotel.
the rooms are royal, the staff is totally concerned about serving your needs. the best example- if a member of the staff was not fluent in english then another member would be brought into the conversation so that there was no confusion. They would also "negotiate" the costs of taxi rides
and any other service that you might need. In short, an oasis in the middle of the old city
a fabulous venue!

The staff is very nice and helpful. The suites are large and usually well located.
The food (roomservice) is really good and maybe breakfast could be improved.
The swiming pool is large enough to welcome the hotel's guests.

An exceptional experience, all hotel staff are super, polite, friendly and helpful. rooms are well arranged and excellent. The minute you get to the hotel you feel the warm welcome and level of smiling services. With great kids club with workers who knows how to deal with kids. IT IS A HOTEL THAT WILL BE MY PLACE WHEN VISITING MARRAKESH. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: upper floors 2 and 3 if you do not want to be close to the pool (which is not disturbing any ways)

I had booked a deluxe room which was exactly the same as the pictures on the site. The room was very clean and the service was impeccable. I had a 15 month infant with me and found that the staff could not do enough to accommodate us. I did wish that I had brushed up on my french as I think it would've been useful. The drinks are very expensive but divine. The hotel is very close to the medina and 15 mins away from the airport.

arrived for a few days filming with a crew and the hotel were very helpful and the rooms were spacious and comfortable for the few hours spent sleeping. The receptionist on check out did try to charge me twice for a meal which was only resolved by paying the money and getting a refund at a later stage. arrogant and doing his job however i can't fault the hotel is is beautiful and the food is amazing. would go back here for a proper holiday next time.

Tired of the rainy days and weeks in our country we went off to Marrakech to enjoy one very hot week in june in this fine hotel. Staff was very helpful, the rooms were luxury and well kept and after our walks into town we were always very glad to get back into our well cooled rooms. Breakfast at the poolside was very much ok and if there was one minor negative fact that caught our attention it was the state of some of the food (especially the meat) was in after having been exposed for quite a while to the open air. The staff must also have noticed this as the next day this food had been covered up to keep it in a fresh state. We enjoyed the variety of fruit, cheese and fresh bakery. Having read some remarks on this site about the (lack of) service by the swimming pool, I paid special attention to this aspect and I must say that I had a lot of respect seeing these members of staff running on and off in this very warm weather to serve the clients by the pool and to help everyone getting a nice and shady place, even though the hotel should perhaps consider to install more places in the shade. If one thing struck my attention in a negative way it was the sometimes arrogant manner by which 'fellow guests' adressed some of the staff. It is true that the TV and stereo in the room are not always easy to handle, but as it was our first time in Marrakech, this didn't really matter to us. We also enjoyed the restaurant which, truly is more expensive than the average restaurant in Marrakech, but the service was good and the quality of the wine and the food was up to the standard you may expect. You might also want to try MK Maison, a restaurant nearby in a riad, where the setting is beautiful and the food was excellent. In the evening there is not a lot going on in the hotel, but as we came here to relax, the cocktails and the setting of the bar with some nice music playing was all we needed. We've been quite around in Marrakech and probably won't be coming back for a week, but when winter gets to bad over here, this city seems a good idea as a citytrip 'get-away' and in that case we will certainly be back at the Naoura Barriere.

Arrived after 2 days climbing in the Atlas mountains, rather dirty and dishevelled. Staff made us most welcome. Pool-view ground floor superior rooms are spacious and well equipped with separate shower room and bathroom, lovely private terrace and comfy beds, robes, towels etc. Restaurant is expensive but good. Staff are great. Gym a bit disappointing. Spa is very nice but not amazing. Pool is lovely and a very good size, although not quite enough parasols for shade from the blazing sun. In spite of these niggles we'd definitely go back. Overall experience was a very good one.

Room Tip: ground floor superior rooms were fabulous.
