“Excellent suite with fantastic big bed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Stayed for 7 nights which was too long for Marakesh. Room, facilities, spa etc all excellent. Staff helpful but you must remember the country's second language is French and some have little or no English. Restaurant best decribed as coffee shop/bistro. Had two meals and quite acceptable but best to eat outside. The superb Al Fassia is only 50 metres down road (rated separately).
For some the issue of a 30 Dirham taxi ride to centre of town was an issue, For us , being outside of the city was a welcome relief from the dirt, stench and pollution of the old town.

Room Tip: Our room faced out to the main road but no issues with noise

My friend and I stayed at the Cesar Hotel and spa for five nights. What a fabulous hotel. The rooms were so luxurious and well laid out bathroom with a fabulous shower. The bed was just the most comfortable ever, with lovely bedding.
The hotel itself is undersold by its exterior. In the basement there is a great relaxing spa area. We had a Haman and massage. Both were wonderful and very inexpensive. There is a nice indoor pool down there, plus steam rooms and relaxation areas.
There are two other outside pools, although they were too cold for me to go in. The pools are surrounded by sun beds, which are not the norm, but like giant bean bags to lie on. It’s just so easy to fall asleep on one in the sun.
The food available was always of a good standard. If you are there on a Sunday, go to the brunch, served from 12 – 4. The menu was very extensive, excellent food and good value, but allow plenty of time to eat, relax and take in the ambience.
The staff in the hotel were really helpful and pleasant, especially Yusuf and Atif, who served us at breakfast and in the bar. They were always cheerful and nothing was too much trouble. This however could be said of all of the staff, including the Manager, who was very hands on and attentive to guests.
We enjoyed some winter sun and relaxed to an unexpected level. It’s a great place to just chill out.
This is a great hotel and I would suggest, not one to be missed. It has easy access to the Souks and is about 200m from a shopping mall.
Give it a try you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: All of the rooms seemed to be good.

I think my opinion of the hotel was clouded (literally) by the weather. We went for winter sun, but got winter weather. So my first advice is not to go in November but this is my fault not the hotels. Hotel itself is fine, service is well meaning and polite but very slow. The hotel is lovely inside but feels quite a long way from everything. The free Hamman was nice although didn't include a scrub (it's the scrub down that really makes the Hamman). If I was to go to Marakesh again I would probably only go for 3-4 days rather than a week and use the extra days somewhere esle (essouira or atlas). Highly recommend the quadbike/buggy/camel trip from Tourag which hotel can book for you. Taxi to Medina seemed to be about 50DMS in day and 60-70 at night. Highly recommend the street market in Djemba El-Fna. The shock of the amount of hassle you get wheres of and after one or two days you are well accustomed to the whole argy-bargy of the place.

Room Tip: All rooms looked decent, it's quite a small hotel. We went for ground floor which had access to...

Really pleasant hotel, just what we wanted, and needed, for a relaxing long weekend break after a busy year. Comfortable and quiet, attributes complemented by the friendly, attentive and extremely helpful staff. When I needed medical attention one evening (after a cat bite, not at the hotel) not only did they arrange the taxi but insisted that a staff member went with me. Having to go again the next day they arranged for the same driver, and subsequently a number of staff made a point of asking how I was.
The spa added to the relaxing nature of the stay, with hammams and massages. The restaurant choice was limited, but with the city centre a short ride (or 50 minute walk) away that's not a problem. It had been 27 years since we were previously in Marrakesh and the number of people and bustle in the city has increased somewhat over that time - so the calm of the Cesar provides a welcome contrast.

We stayed at the beginning of November when the temperature was still above 30C in the afternoon. Food was excellent and breakfast very good. The staff were friendly and we managed to communicate very well with a combination of English and French. Oh and Khadija, I fell in love with you, you were fantastic.

Room Tip: Ask for room 16.

Excellent hotel. Staff very courteous, friendly and helpful - not to be faulted..
Restaurant limited at this time of year - the same very restricted menu for lunch and dinner each day offers little variety and was a major disappointment.

We stayed at the Cesar for 3 nights and had a great stay.
Its a really pleasant Boutique Hotel.
We stayed in one of the poolside rooms which was really nice.... good size, very clean and modern and a super comfy bed with super comfy bedding!
The rooms are really spacious and minimally but fashionably decorated, with nice bathroom, shower bath and double sinks.... the room was turned down each night and they always left flowers on the bed and folded the towels with petals ect...
facilities were good, and the rooftop bar area was nice for drinks and , we had a great sunday buffet and a bottle of wine watching the sunset.
The spa area has a traditional hamman, which you get 1 free scrub down with your room.... i highly reccommend doing this as its a great experience and the hot pool and jacuzzi were great to relax in... my only disappointment with the spa area was it all seemed to lack a bit of organisation. When we had our hamman, were were sort of left to fend for ourselves, not really knowing what was happening at any point and the 2 girls spent most of the time having heated discussions between themselves,whiles we were trying to relax.
the outside pool are is very nice and the pool is surrounded by nice comfy beanbags to lounge in. It was a really relaxing and pleasant stay.
location wise it is quite a way out of town, and we ran up a fairly hefty taxi bill getting to and from the medina and the main area for the bars and restaurants, but there is enough facilities at the resort to shut yourself away there for a few days anyway, without the need to venture out if your after a relaxing short break.
The staff were polite & friendly , but again i got the sense it was a little bit disorganised even though everyone was giving 100% effort,
So on the whole, a good hotel, great spacious luxury rooms, friendly staff and good facilities.....would i stay here again?...yes i would.

Room Tip: the poolside rooms are awsome, the rooms to the left of the pool only get sunshine in the morning, o...
