“Visited for a drink, but would have a meal on next visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Went to this beautiful hotel for a drink after the madness of the square. It was really beautiful, although two glasses of wine were nearly £40 it was worth it. Shame we couldn't get a seat outside as it was beautiful. Although we were not dressed up and I was wearing trainers,practical when walking for miles in Marrakech, the staff were very pleasant and helpful. Would definitely dress up and go for dinner next time A really luxurious piece of heaven in the midst of the madness that can be Marrakech. The stroll through the gardens to get to it was also very pleasant.

Room Tip: Amazing place and I would definitely go for a meal next time, even stay there for a night or two.

Beautiful hotel in its own right, but even more special as a treat and retreat away from the bustle of the Souks. We had our 8 year old daughter with us - she was treated with great attention. The waiters at breakfast even packed up some pastries for her (without us even asking) to eat later because she was more interested in getting in the pool than eating a lovely brunch!

Close to all the action, but quiet and beautiful within the walls!

Definitely worth the money if you can swing it!

La Mamounia was one of the best place is stayed in my life. The rooms are amazing, the SPA is world class and the restaurants are top class. The morning buffet is the best and biggest I enjoyed in my entire life. La Mamounia has a beautiful park with lots of Olives and Orange trees. The employees are very friendly and helpful. For trips around Marrakesh the Concierge team will organize everything. We stayed there for 3 days and it was like in a 1001 night fairy tale.

Someone needs to seriously address the situation with the staff on the gate! I have never been refused entry anywhere! EVER! Today my partner and I were refused entry for wearing sports shoes and carrying a back pack! I had a £180 shoes - NOT trainers or sports shoes. I was wearing Ralph Lauren trousers and carrying a laptop over the shoulder bag. And had a tailored shirt on. My partner was kitted out in a Marni outfit. I am stunned by the rudeness and plain stupidity of the staff on the gate. To be honest - if this is the way that staff are trained I really do not want to be any part of it.

Enjoyed lunch by the pool whilst visiting this outstanding hotel. First class service, incredible surroundings and food that really was divine. Worth far more than five star rating this surely has to be one of the best world hotels,luxurious and memorable.

There no doubt that this property is MAGNIFICENT. Historic hotel, well cared for, but as with many historic property, there's a little "resting on their laurels" aspect going on here. Basic rooms are quite basic, but if you can splurge a bit, the suites are wonderful. Grounds are TO DIE FOR, and a DEEP, old school, pool is cool, refreshing, and luxurious. The PROPERTY will not disappoint.

I would NOT recommend this hotel for first timers though. It is a long taxi ride to the medina and Jemaa el Fna. Also, the Arabic service habits are over the top here. With this I mean, the HAND OUT for a tip at EVERY TURN can be overwhelming here. When u arrive, the deliver a basket of fruit, and they wait around for a tip. 2 minutes later, a knock on the door with fresh towels, with a hand out, a few minutes more, someone comes by with some water, again waits for a tip. This normal in this culture, they'll keep coming until you stop tipping, but at La Manmounia, its too much.

If you desire a glimpse at one of the worlds finest, and historic places, you'll need to stay a night here. For the action, however, I'd spend my money at a beautiful riad near old town.

Room Tip: Splurge a it here. Standard rooms are less than desirable.
