Just back from a 5 day stay at the Sofitel in Marrakech. We had a truly great holiday, very busy but a lot of fun, and the hotel really contributed to a great time.
It is in a great location - just 10 minutes walk from the Medina and 10-15 minutes from the New Town shops and restaurants. It is pretty central to everything that is going on.
The hotel is lovely with great facilities, from the Spa (expensive!), to the bars and restaurants, the leisure facilities (2 pools) and staff. Overall the staff were very friendly, welcoming and polite. I say 'overall' because there were a couple of staff who were "below par", but they were the exception not the rule. The concierges were excellent, always helpful, with great recommendations. If you do venture to this hotel we strongly recommend the guided trip to the Atlas Mountains (with Abdul as the driver/guide) - it was a great day!
The reasons I have not scored this hotel more highly are: our room was a little tired and dated and it is very expensive for what it gives you (e.g. breakfast was £20 per head and really not worth that).
I would still recommend the hotel as a Very Good option if visiting Marrakech.
