“A visit of a lifetime”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

I had lunch, outside and adjacent to the pool, on April 4th. Contrary to the last reviewer, I found
the food extremely acceptable. We enjoyed a buffet - first courses included smoked Norwegian
salmon, prawns in different sauces and oysters, mains included roast lamb (pink) and tender
roast beef. For dessert, there were seven different home made ice creams and sorbets. Pricey -
-well yes - a G&T was 16 Dirhams, but I do not see their standards every day, more's the pity.

The tranquility of it all, and the olde-worlde service was in contrast to some of the seriously
overrated riads I visited.

We had booked a night at La Mamounia as a treat for the last night of our holidays and we were not disappointed. The service was spot on. We had booked a twin deluxe with views of the Atlas. The room was big, had all you needed and more. Wish I could afford a week there.
The only negative was the food at the restaurant "le Marocain". Way too expensive for very bland food (after a week of eating local food such as Tajines and couscous in places from simple restaurants to riads around Morocco, this meal was the second most disappointed (only a tourist trap where we had lunch in Fes was worse). I would not have another meal there.

Having said that was made the most of the inner and outer pool and had the Sunday brunch by the pool (a little pricey again but great food there) and I would definitely return to the Mamounia and recommend it whole heartidly

We did not stay here, but did have drinks on the grounds. It is a splendid resort, from the doormen in costume to the grass tennis courts and bocce. The pool area was also outstanding. In the midst of the noise and chaos of Marrakech, this is a tranquil oasis. We would stay here if money were no object.

Had a great stay at la mamounia and location is central, but more occidental than Moroccan. We stayed in a riad hotel later on and it was a great experience, felt like living within a Moroccan family where they prepare breakfast for u and take the time to talk to u and welcome u. Italian Restaurant in la mamounia is fairly expensive and we didn't like it at all. However the Italian bar's sandwiches are great. The hammam and massage not so much.
However if ur looking for a luxury hotel in the middle of everything then this is the one.
Overall experience: very good

This was our second time in the hotel. On our first visit, just after it opened in remodelled form, we were there for just 2 nights but were blown away by the Moroccan swagger, like a stage set from the Arabian nights. This time, we spent a little longer and while the service is very good and gardens /pool etc fabulous, we found ourselves leaving to eat. There are two nice , nearly identical, restaurants in the hotel, one "French" and one "Italian" serving predictable, international food. Did we come to Morocco for this? Also, the big pink boxy extensions which house most of the rooms in a functional way, look a bit, dare I say, "Floridian" from the outside. La Mamounia is International -Luxe , but Moroccan- Lite.

We had a dinner at the 2 Michelin Star Restaurant "Le Francais" during our visit to Marrakesh in April 2014. The restaurant is excellent and we strongly recommend it.
It is not a "Nouvelle Cuisine" restaurant with small portions and strange dishes as most of Michelin Star Restaurants. You can find fantastic options for starters , meat and fish. We had a marinated salmon as a starter and a fillet as a mail course. They were both delicious. We also had an amazing Apple Pie as a desert. Service was above standards and the place in the park of La Mamounia spectacular.
The restaurant is not cheap of course. We paid 200 Euros for 2 persons full course with starter , main course dessert and wine. But consider that it is a 2 star Michelin Restaurant and in such restaurants you could pay much more elsewhere
Except of the dinner if you do not stay at La Mamounia as we did it is a must to visit this Historic Hotel witch exists for more than 90 years and a dinner at "Le Francais" is a fantastic reason to do it.

As there were no vegetarian items on the à la carte menu (no big deal as not unusual for French restaurants), the (two-star Michelin chef) cuisine proposed the following exquisite alternatives:
entrée: green salad
main course: spaghetti with tomato sauce
I have had some excellent vegetarian experiences with Michelin-rated French cuisines, but this one hit the top!
To add insult to injury, both dishes were charged higher than the rest on the menu, as they had to be especially prepared...
