“Beautiful escape while in busy Marrakech”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Beautiful oasis while visiting Marrakech. Although it is at the pricier end of the scale, the lovely room and great service was well worth the money spent. Highlight is the fresh and delicious breakfast served every morning. Would gladly go back next time I'm in Morocco.

This hotel is excellent and we had a great time. The only downside was we had booked half board with Thomson holidays but the hotel charged us for all of our meals apart from breakfast. Neither Thomson nor the hotel will take responsibility. Therefore we have paid nearly £800.00 pounds for one weeks meals. Apalling!

Perfect location - a quick walk to the medina and the action. The service was spectacular - we asked for an iron and ironing board - and it was delivered within a few minutes. They surprised us with a turn down service, my pajamas were on the bed - and when we returned from dinner they had arranged them in a flower pattern, put slippers beside the bed, and arranged a glass and bottle of water on the night stand. We enjoyed the free cocktails at the Manager's reception on our first night (I understand this is offered only on Mondays).

Very clean and super comfortable place. The fitness room a bit small and not enough equipment if you are serious about it. Spa was just great. Good service and very expert personnel. If you are planning to have some relax after long walks in Marrakech, do not waste time, just go there.
PS: 60 min massage is quite expensive!!

I was in the old part of the hotel but having a great bed, pillows, just great service everywhere, and absolutely best ever breakfast - I just cannot complain. The only thing I would have liked to make it a perfect stay is to have had the iron and kettle in the room. I do like to make my own cup of tea when abroad. I suppose if I had asked for the kettle I probably would have gotten it. Do stay at this hotel if in Marrakech - it's definitely worth the few extra dols and the spa is heaven.

Room Tip: I stayed in the old part of the hotel with a balcony to the garden which was very nice and quiet.

Fantastic week in the Sofitel! Service was exemplary and the staff were always happy and smiling from breakfast to dinner. Nothing too much for them especially MOKHTAR our waiter at the poolside who was very friendly and attentive. He made us feel very at home. I recommend everyone to visit the spa for a Hamam (a Steam bath and scrub) and after a full body massage with argon oil. Great for the body and soul before dining and dancing the night away to Latin music in So Nice club . Well worth another visit.

Difficult to find fault really. We stayed for a week in late April and enjoyed a heat wave, which gave us an opportunity to fully enjoy the massive double, sorry kingsize, sun beds - every hotel should have them this size it was bliss. Service around the pool area was attentive and at times very creative - sunglass cleaning, free fruit kebabs, free mini cocktails etc..

All hotel staff were polite and keen to help. Particular mention to the breakfast crew: Fatima, Said, Rachida and Abderahim - they now know how to make a great British cuppa (if you have stayed here you will understand this reference!)

There were two negatives:
1. Aircon in room didnt work properly and leaked water, which never got fixed during the stay
2. Evening meal option is limited to one restaurant and whilst the menu is good it would be nice to have a choice of dining venues

Notwithstanding the above points, the hotel is in a great location, with superb facilities and we wouldn't hesitate to return.

Room Tip: bring your own tea bags
