We stayed for 4 nights as a special birthday treat and it was indeed memorable. The hotel is located about 20 mins + (depending on the traffic) from the city centre but we liked this as it felt like 2 holidays in 1 - the hustle, bustle, sights, sounds and smells of the Medina and the souks and then returning to the calm, tranquil luxury of the hotel. The rooms are huge with lounge (including wood burning stove not needed as 30 degrees!) bedroom, dressing area and massive bathroom with twin walk-in showers and Bulgari toiletries. Also lots of outside space with rear garden, front terrace and private jacuzzi - we didn't feel the need to use the communal pool although it did look lovely. We tried both the restaurants; the Thai was good and the French food was beautifully presented but we couldn't find many things on the menu that we wanted to eat so didn't go twice, also the chairs and tables are very low and therefore uncomfortable if you are tall! (we ate out twice in very good traditional Moroccan restaurants in Marrakesh). Breakfast and lunch in the hotel were both excellent particularly the plat du jour and we enjoyed some good Moroccan wines. The gardens and walkways over water were beautiful by day and night (candle lit) along with the fragrance from the jasmine etc, it was a pleasure to wander round the grounds. The management team were exceptional, very welcoming and you felt that everyone genuinely wanted you to have the best stay possible. It is expensive but this hotel stands above most other 5* hotels we have stayed in and we are already looking for an excuse to return!
