“French campsite of choice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

We were in the tiny minority of being 2 English campers amongst about 50 French and a smattering of other nationalities. The pitch markings are indistinct so one can find oneself with a very close neighbour! Showers could be hot if you picked your time of day (8:30am was good). The pool area was lovely and the restaurant clean and friendly with fair food and free wifi (in return for a drink). It has a very relaxed atmosphere and is some distance from the busy road. However, there are downsides to being relaxed in that there was always the possibility of standing in something gooey deposited by the many dogs owned by campers and the dustbins seemed to be always overflowing.

And when you want to know why there is no hot water, the answer makes you feel stupid : "Y'a trop de monde, voyez pas ?" (Too many people, can't you see ?).
At Drh115 a night, this is one of the dearest and yet very little service for money. No toilet paper, not cleaned as often as it should, horrible smell of sewer around the sanitary bloc due to the submerged service area.
If you plan to use the specially negotiated taxi service, be aware : the Drh60 applies only from 9am to 6pm and for a direct non stop trip to the "Artisanal Craft Centre". Of course!!!. Any modification, even if you ask to be dropped down on the way will result in "Free rates" i.e. anything from 120 to Drh300.
In Marrakech, Camp manager, taxi drivers and sellers have a long experience of ripping off tourists. You won't win....

Room Tip: Avoid this tourist trap.

I recently visited my father who is staying at this campsite in Marrakech on his world travels. I've stayed in many campsites and I was blown away with the pool area facilities. I spent most of my time in a hammock using their free wifi.
I was also amazed how friendly everyone was. It had a lovely community spirit.
One tip, when the site is busy, get to the showers early in the morning as you might have a cold shower!
If I was ever to camp in Marrakech, I'll defiantly be staying here again!

I had booked just a couple of nights online and arrived quite early in the morning... I'd travelled thru the night from a very busy City of Fez.. So at Le relais de Marrakech was great to kick back and enjoy a bit of peace and quiet after the busy nature of Marrakech Medina and the Souks...
Once you've done your sight seeing, your buying and endless haggling, you can feel just a little frayed, so very nice to go back to an oasis of quiet...
The staff were very helpful... The pool area, is beautiful... there is a Jacuzzi too... Massages can be well recommended ( 3 x 30 minute massages for 300 dirhams.. I ate at the restaurant several evening times too... good food at a reasonable price... breakfast is a simple breakfast, but is value for money ( £2.20 - €2.80 - 30 dirhams )
I arranged a quad bike experience and the people they use are of a high standard, with new machines... Great value...
I had a 6 day stay, and had a Chambre / room which was just used by myself, but it would have been the same price if up to 3 people shared it.. ( £20 - €24 - 270 Dirhams )
I then journeyed on to Agadir and Essaueira and decided to return back there again for 3 nights camping... Great place to visit if you want a peaceful option to seeing Marrakech..

Room Tip: This is predominantly a camp site for motorhomes, but also has Berber type rooms and also rooms with...

Relais de Marrakech is that typical place where you don't expect the perfect place (the roadsigns leading to the camping are very limited), yet where you find your very own Moroccan fata morgana. The pool is very nice, surrounded by green foliage and excellent beds to relax. The restaurant offers a typical Moroccan menu, as well as some international dishes (pasta, pizza, etc.) and alcohol, which is not to be found a lot in Morocco. It has splendid tents for hire, which are fully equipped (though we took the camping). Sanitation is proper, the owner is friendly and even washes your laundry for (if I remember correctly) free. Recommended for sure!

We stayed in Le relais de Marrakech for some nights during our visit in Marrakech and were very satisfied. The garden is well maintained, the swimming pool is refreshing and beautiful and we liked our nomade style tent. The staff was very friendly and it was no problem to get transport in to the city. I read some negative things about the restaurant but we were very satisfied. The food was maybe a little more expensive than one of the very cheap places in the center, but the portions were big and good. We would definitely come again!

We have just returned to Ireland following a years trip around Europe and North Africa in our campervan. We liked this place so much that we returned here a second time on our trip and recommended it to friends who came to Marrakech for a short trip and stayed with us at Le Relais in the Kasbah while we were in stayed at one of the campervan sites. The array of different accomodation here is excellent and suits all types of travellers. The grounds are beautifully kept and really pretty. We found this to be the best campsite we stayed in during our entire 2.5 months travelling around Morocco. Facilities are excellent and very clean, with a lovely pool area. We were able to rent a car easily for a day trip and the staff arranged for the car to be delivered to and collected from the campsite for a very reasonable price. The campsite is a little far away from shops etc. but the restaurant is very good and the Marjane supermarket is a short/cheap taxi drive away, there is also a small shop just outside the campsite who are able to provide the basics, such as fresh bread, eggs, milk, water, ciggies etc, the man that runs this shop is also very accomodating and will go and get any extras that you might need such as veg and herbs if you ask him. We found the staff and management to be very friendly and our friends were upgraded to two rooms instead of one with no extra charge. The pricing is fair. Altogether we found Le Relais de Marrakech to be an excellent base for visiting the wonderful city of Marrakech.
