“Beautiful Beldi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2011

We recently had our wedding at Beldi Country Club in mid April, and it could not have been more magical. We chose Beldi because of the organic beauty of this place and the extraordinary hotel buildings and grounds which are beyond breathtaking, especially the rose fields when in full bloom, which sit beneath a panorama of the Atlas mountains. There are many beautiful places to stay in Marrakech most of which we have visited (when trying to book a wedding venue), but Beldi has to be one of the most special, in terms of the design and the overall ambience of the place. It is a characterful blend of Provence and Marrakech, with it's organic olive groves, fragrant flowers and Moroccan inspired architecture. The fragrance of roses reaches you wherever you are and it has to be one of the most relaxing places we have ever visited.
The hotel is well managed, but there is still some work to do here, perhaps to make the restaurant run more effectively, this would not put us off returning to Beldi though, especially for a warm Spring or Autumn weekend, where you can take time to relax by the pool, or take a pottery class or have some delicious lunch at the Beldi club enjoying the beautiful surroundings.
We hope that the recent terrorism in Marrakech doesn't stop tourists from visiting the city, as it really is a gem, and staying just outside the city at Beldi is even better, because it is in complete contrast to the busy frantic atmosphere in the medina. If you like places of contrast, you'll be sure to like Marrakech.
It's probably not the best hotel for young children, and the food for children probably isn't varied enough, however this shouldn't deter you from visiting this beautiful place.

Room Tip: ask for duplex room, or one with an outdoor bath!

We were stunned by the beauty of this place - every room is individual and the gardens are lovely. The problem is the appalling service. It was terrible. This place touts itself as a luxury retreat, but the luxury soon fades when you have to deal with incompetence. The staff simply have no idea how to wait tables, serve drinks at the bar or make you feel comfortable. There are not enough staff, and they are not managed or trained in hospitality whatsoever.

The management consists of the owner who periodically shows up and looks smug, but there is no identifiable Hotel Manager who runs things and acts as a go to person. You end up having to get off your sun lounger and go searching for a drink, and then get to the bar which is empty, and have to figure it out yourself. No one offers you anything and the staff are incapable of memorising orders correctly. The food is poor, and really expensive. One night we were all dining together (30 people) and they brought the starters to one table after another table had finished desert! They also had a real issue adding 3 places to the layout, an initially even refused to do it!

Overall - spend your money elsewhere, or go for only 2 nights and plan to eat out. And DON'T expect to be waited on hand and foot. Or waited on at all! Shocking.

Well-known as a day trip to use the pool and have lunch in the beautiful gardens, especially on Sundays, the Beldi Country Club, hotel and spa is a great place to chill after spending a few days in the Medina.
We arrived after a hectic few days in the city and were amazed by how beautiful this place is. As practically the only guests in the hotel we had use of one enormous swimming pool, reserved for hotel guests only, to ourselves for entire stay.
It's only 15 mins drive into the city and the hotel provided friendly and reliable drivers whenever we needed. we spent our four days mainly relaxing by the pool but it's a good spot to head into the city for a day or out towards the Ourika valley where the hotel can organise a variety of day trips etc.
Food was great, a mix of Moroccan and French served either by the pool that's open to the public or on the terrace by the hotel's pool.
highly recommended.

Went there with my gf. We didn't want to be in the Medina cause it's too noisy and we wanted something more relaxing... just nice and cool. The Beldi was such the perfect match. We've spent an amazing time there.

Rooms: Large, beautiful and truly charming. Our bathroom was insane!
Food: amazing. Never been sick wich is unbelievable in Morroco! ;)
Spa: breathtaking, one of the best i've ever been too (and i travel A LOT)
Service: people there are super nice. We've invited one of them to our house in NY.
Price: i think it was cheap considering the quality of the place
The rose garden: wowwww.... just go and try it!!!!!

Definitely one of the best trips i had, oops... we had! ;)

It was our first time that we visited Marrakech and we wanted to stay in a relaxed place at the beginning. So we found the Beldi and it was exactly what we were looking for: calm, beautiful landscape, good service, nice stuff, clean and individual. The hotel by beldi is pretty new (since 2009), every room has it's own terrasse, the guests of the hotel have their own pool where you can get lunch and drinks. You can go to the Merdina with a small bus for free, just ask at the front desk. Next time we visit Marrakech we will stay there for sure!

We did not sleep here as we definitely wanted to stay in a hotel in the medina during our first trip to Marrakech. However we did come here for lunch, and as I cannot find a separate heading for the Beldi’s restaurant, I am posting this here. This restaurant is a real find, and from conversations we had with ex-pats who were also having lunch at the Beldi, something unique on the Marrakech landscape. You need a taxi to get here, as it is approx 15 minutes outside the city.
To get to the restaurant you walk through a huge rose garden, much more than a garden as it’s a large field planted with what must be thousands of rose bushes. The restaurant has a real postcard setting, overlooking the roses, with the snow-capped Atlas Mountains in the background. Just beautiful! There is a prix fix menu (350 dirhams per person if I remember correctly) which seemed very reasonable for the quality of the lunch. I had grilled sardines and the quail as a main dish, and both were perfectly cooked. The atmosphere here is very relaxed chic, yet the service is professional and attentive. I would highly recommend the Beldi to anyone who is looking for an original and relaxing place to have a delicious lunch outside the city.
