“La Mamounia”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

I stayed with my husband for a couple of nights and loved it. Set in the lushest green garden the hotel is a cool mix of old-fashioned splendour and luxury. I was in love with our room, which had the most divine view of the palmeraie. Service matched the prices and was superiour. We only ate at the hotel one evening and had a delicious meal and wine at Le Italien - what a treat. But having stayed here years ago I must agree with others that it's lost some of it's draw.

My hubby and I visited Marrakech last weekend and stayed at a nice Riad in the Medina, but we soon tired of the filth and madness of the Medina. Having visited the Jardins Majorelle (disappointing) and walked for miles trying to find somewhere nice for lunch, I snapped, bundled hubby into a cab and high-tailed it to La Mamounia!
How pleased I am that we did! We decided to forgoe the Sunday brunch at £100 per head and opted for a meal on the terrace. We had a blissful beer and gin and tonic (nectar!) and a lovely cheeseburger in a beautiful, peaceful garden setting with smiling and attentive staff. It was such a change from what we had experienced in the rest of Marrakech that we stayed all afternoon! £75 well spent.
If we are ever mad enough to visit Marrakech again, this is where we will stay!

This hotel is spectacular! The service at the restaurant and the spa were really great. The massage was not the best, but the experience in the spa was great. The hotel is beautiful and the staff is very friendly. I recommend trying the huge dates in the lobby. They are sweeter than all other dates that we had in Morocco.

Beautiful hotel with outstanding restaurants! A wonderful place to stay in Marrakesh, although we were a bit disappointed by the spa. The area, Geluiz, is much better to stay than the Medina. I would definitely recommend it, although it is expensive.

Excellent. Truly excellent. Not for people with backpacks. Expensive, but worth every Dinar. Beautiful, peaceful property. Recently renovated after three years, this place is perfect. At night the lighting is incredible; soft and very well executed. Good security and safe. Huge staff, friendly and attentive. Good restaurants, great spa and gym. Incredibly decorated property, hotel, and rooms. I would come back to Morroco just for this hotel. In fact, I will!

I stayed at La Mamounia about ten years and was somehow concerned that after the total renovations it might have lost it lustre. It's as good as before and in my opinion, one of the best hotels in the entire world. A world class experience where one meets famous people.
The guests rooms are superb. The service as good as in asia. A visit to the spa is a must.
Morning breakfast is not to be missed.
While I saw some families, I would not take my kids there even if the staff really cares about them. It's worth opening your wallet and experience the very best Marrakech has to offer.

Room Tip: Book an executive suite. Very well appointed. They overlook La Mamounia's famous garden. They ha...

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.
