“Attention to detail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

La Maison Arabe
What can I say that hasn’t already been said? From the moment we stepped off the lane in the medina, just 10 minutes from the main square, and were greeted by the charming manager who took us to a small courtyard for a refreshing mixed fruit drink (lime, orange, banana, mint) served with nuts while our paper work was processed and our room made ready, until the time we left, 4 days later, you could not fault the attention to detail. Our huge room overlooked the courtyard pool. Because this has been built in two stages and actually straddles two streets, it takes a little time to find your way around – but all is explained when you are given a tour of the place, including the wellness centre with its hamam. There is plenty to see in Marrakech but do spend some time at the hotel’s Kasbah and garden pool, about 20 minutes away. A shuttle leaves on the half hour and you can swim, walk in the garden and have a light lunch. From day to evening there is so much you can do, tea and pastries by the pool, cocktails in the jazz bar, dinner in one of the two restaurants. We enjoyed the food so much we ate there every night. My husband was suffering post shingles pain so didn’t feel like going out too much. The staff are so attentive and always asked how he was. Forbes rates this place number one in Marrakech and we can see why.

We spent four nights of our honeymoon in this fantastic riad. From the beginning of our exchanges with staff- Nabila- we were thoroughly impressed! Upon arrival, every single person we interacted with was so helpful, kind, patient and knowledgable. The location was ideal for exploring the medina and Marrakech more broadly. The rooms were beautiful (fabulous beds) and incredibly well organized in terms of ensuring privacy etc. The restaurant food was amazing and the breakfasts each morning fantastic. No task was too big or too complicated for our wonderful La Maison Arabe staff- I fell ill and we had to change our reservation and they were so accommodating. Could not recommend this place highly enough-- guarantee you will have a wonderful stay! An incredibly memorable honeymoon destination for us :)

Room Tip: We indulged in the Noor and Jaafar suites because it was our honeymoon- both were great!

Marrakech is wonderful, exciting, exotic city, but it is busy and chaotic. La Maison Arabe is an oasis of calm and elegance in the midst of the chaos. The hotel is located down an alley off a main street near the Djemma-el-Fna. It is an interesting structure, architecturally; it is actually fun to try to find one's way around. The hospitality of the staff, including a great bartender and an amazing group at the front desk, is absolutely first class. The rooms are magnificent, combining Moroccan art and sensibility with modern features. The restaurant is elegant with great food and service and amazing ambiance, overlooking a beautiful pool. One plus: when there was some confusion about the class of room we booked (and prepaid), the management upgraded us to a room above the class we originally booked.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the suites. We loved Noor.

This hotel has great staff, the reception staff were very welcoming. We had the Moroccan dinner the first night we were there, and it had a great selection of beautiful food. We had the degustation Moroccan menu and make sure you are hungry because there is lots of food. I would have liked to do the cookery school but ran out of time, it looked like a lot of fun. The Hamman was very busy also so make sure you book early.

An experience not to be missed is the cookery school, great fun wonderful host and surrounding beautiful. A must go place while in Marrakech, you don't need to be a great cook to enjoy this class all levels of experience will enjoy.

Enjoyed every minute of my stay. I was pleasantly surprised after a one night stay in another riad in another city that did not meet my expectations. Maison did....and more. My room was wonderful. The only exception was-no clock. But that can be worked around. Loved the location. The staff were all very friendly, patient and helpful. The food was excellent. The same can be said for the Country Club. A very elegant and nice break from the rigors of sight seeing!

Room Tip: I was in room 228 just a few steps up from the front desk. Two of the windows were directly above th...
