My wife and I have just returned from a truly wonderful stay at Acacia Villas, Marrakech. Our main reason for selecting this hotel was to escape the 'Rat-race', enjoy some quality relaxation and some sunshine. Next on the list was visiting Marrakech centre and thereafter the Atlas Mountains.
The hotel was very comfortable in a truly beautiful setting (approx 2 hectares) of orange trees, lush, green garden with an inviting pool. There were ample shaded areas in the garden and a large comfortable lounge with a full sized pool table. Occasional entertainment was provided discretely by the goats, ducks, chickens and 2 very friendly dogs, who all added to the charm of the place. Our room was clean and tastefully decorated. There was a very homely, family atmosphere at the hotel and we were able to enjoy some peace and quiet together, as well as chatting to other guests. We were very well looked after by Babs, Acacia's head waiter and managed to communicate fairly easily with our rusty 'fr-anglais'. We enjoyed bountiful breakfasts, delicious lunches and filling dinners.
Taxis to the centre, a trip to a good Hammam and a day visit to the mountains were arranged with ease. Whilst the hotel's taxi (Abdo) maybe marginally more expensive than relying on other local taxis, he is very courteous and reliable. If shopping is on your agenda, he could save you this difference in cost many times over by first showing you the fixed price Government emporium in the centre (Kasbah) to buy local trinkets (rugs etc) before you tackle the mayhem in the suqs.
Marco and Katia, the owners, were very helpful and friendly and were keen to ensure that we were well catered for and satisfied throughout our stay.
Our stay at Acaccia Villas fully met our expectations and we look forward to a return visit; since our return to England we have also been recommending the place enthusiastically to many of our friends.
