“Xanadu ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We visited this hotel and restaurant on the advice of a colleague of my missus' and it's some place . It's worth noting some rooms are £32000 per night !!

The place is nothing short of stunning . The bar Churchill said was his favourite place does not disappoint it is breathtaking in aspect and oozes class and sophistication. Prices ? Cocktails and olives for two , expect to pay @£50 though it's not just about that , the place itself is one of the most elegant and atmospheric places I've ever visited. We booked the restaurant for the following evening and just walking in the grounds to get to one of the three ( we choose the al fresco ) is a delight in itself. As said the cost could be limitless , there's wine for thousands and thousands yet we ate four or five courses in one of the nicest places on earth including wine for £120.00.
If you visit marrakesh , or visit this place and leave disappointed then you really have no soul . A must in a lifetime .

We only came to this hotel for a lunch but it was fabulous. The choice of the buffet food was enormous and the quality outstanding. We dined outside by the pool and the waiting staff were very attentive - what you would expect from one of the hotels in the world which is rated as one of the best. Drinks, even bottled water is expensive so you need to be aware of the cost. The hotel is set in beautiful grounds with a huge swimming pool and large grassy areas with sunbeds dotted all around. The inside reception area has that palatial feeling and the staff are very attentive. The hotel has an air of peace and calm about it and that very "posh" feeling.

we visited the bar l'Italienne, from memory, the one with the Majorelle ceiling panel) for cocktails before supper on our wedding anniversary. The whole experience was lovely: once you walk through the main gate you walk into a calm, tranquil and beautiful sanctuary ( having said that anything behind a wall in marrakech provides similar relief); the gardens are wonderful; very welcoming staff, beautifully appointed reception and bar area, seated efficiently ( still amazes me that you have internal smoking area within a hotel of this pedigree, but I guess ones local market (and traditions) must be catered to also) decent cocktail menu at not ludicrous prices (given setting all things considered); very friendly and attentive service, creative nibbles provided; the cosmohibiscus was a lovely twist, but the mojito I ordered was, ironically for a country which prides itself on mint tea and the abundance of the stuff, chronically badly made - not strongly minted enough, not quite sweet enough, just a strong rum basically (which was why I couldn't rate the experience as perfect). Having said that, we will go back for longer later in the week to give it a second go - worth the effort

We were lucky enough to spend 3 nights in this amazing, iconic hotel. We had a beautiful room with lovely terrace overlooking the gorgeous and extensive gardens. There are so many places, both inside and out to be private and quiet and then there are the fun areas of bars and restaurants. The French restaurant is superb - the staff so considerate and attentive. The same goes for the Moroccan restaurant with excellent live music. Everywhere you go you are greeted with courtesy and consideration and often by name! This hotel is everything we expected and more - definitely worthy of its fine reputation.

Was here several years ago on a Nat Geo trip around the world, in February and am just getting around to reviewing this trip. See from other reviewers that perhaps it didn't live up to expectations. Well, for our group, at the end of a 3 week adventure traveling around the world, the hotel was an elegant, restful place to stay.

This place is overrated and not worth it. We booked a courtyard room on an online travel agency and when we arrived we were taken to a small room overlooking the roof. When we asked for the manager, Sara said that she was sorry but if we had booked directly with the hotel she could guarantee the room but otherwise she couldn't do anything. At the end she offered a garden room if we paid extra every day for the 4 nights that we were staying. We didn't want to ruin our stay so we ended up paying a lot more for a better room. Yes, the hotel is beautiful, the furniture, the fabrics, the attention to detail and the gardens are extraordinary but the room was dark, the bathroom was small and had terrible lighting. Worst of all everything in the hotel is overpriced: breakfast is not included and starts at $50 per person, the Moroccan Restaurant has a fixed menu that starts at a minimum of $100 to $150 per person, lunch was $150 for two salads… you really have to be careful. And everything related to the hotel is more expensive than anywhere else, a taxi that shouldn't be more than 20-30 dirams the hotel taxis charge 100 dirams and the bellman who is getting you the cab does not really care and doesn't help. You just feel that everyone just want to get advantage of you every minute! Yes, the hotel is famous for being stylish and it is indeed beautiful but next time I will try a different place with no regrets.

Room Tip: make sure you get a garden room and don't be fooled by the word courtyard.

To be transported back to a different time and pace, stay at La Mamounia. Although the interior of the hotel is somewhat dark, it is beautifully and richly appointed, and the outdoor spaces are truly enticing, with places to eat outside or simply rest in a quiet area by the pool. The spa is wonderful, with exotic offerings. Our suite with a view over the gardens was amazing. We did not use half the space, though the bathroom was beyond compare. The buffet breakfast and lunch were amazing, a surfeit of offerings, a culinary tour.

Room Tip: If you can enjoy an upgrade to a suite, it is worth the splurge.
