Was told this was the only hotel to stay in when visiting Marrakech and I wasn't disappointed.Upon arrival while waiting to check in I was presented with a silver platter of dates and milk before being taken to my room (A Deluxe) which was delivered in traditional Moroccan styling with views of the park and grounds which again were fantastic.
If I was being picky I could say that the bathrooms were quite dark as the lighting was minimal but sitting on the balcony with a drink at sunset soon made me forget such a minor detail.
The hotel itself is located perfectly next to a beautiful park and only a 10 minute walk to the huge bustling markets however English speaking drivers are available at all hours of the day to take you wherever you need to go should it be further afield.
Good sized indoor and outdoor pool and the spa had a nice selection of treatments too.
Visited the Churchill bar one evening where they had a jazz singer who was excellent and even when I got too drunk and ended up naked in the hotel pool the staff were still friendly and polite to me even though clearly it wasn't the kind of place for that behaviour!
All things considered I would definitely recommend this hotel however it is on the upper end of the price scale but for me delivered well and for a few days a great choice.
