“Birthday Amazement”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Marrakech was the final destination of a 2 week+ fabulous trip to 5 cities in Spain to conclude in Marrakech and La Maison Arabe was the most fascinating and amazing hotel where we stayed as I celebrated my birthday with my partner and friends. Truly the best was saved for last and do not be deceived by what you may see when you arrive. In fact as we arrived by taxi, I remembered from tours in Spain that it is Muslim custom to maintain a modest outside and concentrate on what is inside - so keep that in mind when you arrive. What a beautiful place with 5 star service and style that was simply unmatched. The staff was attentive and friendly, the bar was accommodating and the food was simply superb as the restaurant staff sang Happy Birthday in English and Arabic. From the moment we arrived we felt welcome and special even though they do this all the time. I highly recommend staying here.

A truly well-run hotel, excellent in every respect. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Beautifully decorated in Moroccan style. Very much enjoyed the pool and immaculate gardens at the country club which was a place of calm tranquillity away from the frenetic Medina.

Room Tip: Junior suite with a garden view was very spacious and it was great to have a balcony

I endorse the many rave reviews of this riad-hotel. It is conveniently situated; it is decorated in impeccable taste; the food and service in the beautiful pool-side restaurant are excellent; the country club is an oasis of peace and quiet, perfect for rest and relaxation. Our suite was beautifully decorated and very comfortable.

What makes this hotel extra special is the calibre of the staff it employs. They are professional, efficient, friendly, courteous and fall over themselves to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Above all, they all seem happy in their work, are proud of the hotel, and this shows in their attitude. Clearly the hotel's management is doing an excellent job here and are to be congratulated.

Marrakech itself is a fascinating and historic city and conveniently located for day trips. We are already planning a return trip, with our children this time, and shall definitely book again at La Maison Arabe.

Room Tip: We had the Sinbad suite (Rm 211). Because the windows open on to side alleys on both sides, it can...

We stayed in 4 hotels in Marrakech for our honeymoon. This hotel is on a par with the four seasons for luxury. The staff were great and the service was fantastic. We hope to return very soon. The country club was an added bonus which allowed us to fully relax during the day before visiting the Medina at night. The hotel even allowed us to use a room to shower and change before our evening flight.

Of all six cities that we visited during our 2 1/2 week trip to Spain and Marrakesh this hotel is by far the most incredible and special. In fact I'm pretty sure it's the most incredible place I've ever stayed in all of my travels. Do not be concerned when you are originally brought to the hotel by a car or taxi as the entrance is setback from the street and it's all about the inside of the property. The service at this hotel is absolutely top-notch; everyone is fully aware of your needs, specifications and reservations which I found incredibly impressive. Everyone is beautiful inside and out and eager to ensure that your stay is incredible. The restaurant is sublime. The location relative to other sites is also outstanding. And we had the most magical experience in the home mom spa located in the basement level of this oasis. The treatments that you can receive there include body scrubs, massages, steam bath, facial, and foot massage. And then there's the tranquility lounge! Add to all this the most amazing fragrances and gentle Moroccan music playing in the background with dimly lit with candles and the gentle sounds of water gurgling in the center of the tranquility room, and you will wonder if you will ever allow yourself to leave. You can also take a shuttle that runs every hour to visit the offsite country club with the most incredible pool cooking school herb garden trees tranquil setting high service levels delicious lunch everything you could want for an afternoon of relaxation. The bar is managed by the most incredible bar manager who makes you feel like you are his dear friend his name is Rishad and you should definitely pay him a visit especially on the evening when a live jazz pianist vocalist performs. Then there are the beautiful rooms and decor throughout the hotel which are the best examples of Moroccan chic I can imagine. Then you can visit the boutique store outside of the hotel to buy the most amazing the Moroccan crafts gifts containers everything and incredibly great prices. I can't imagine any other place that I would want to visit in all of Morocco run do not walk to this hotel.

This is the 1001st review, and I wish we could have stayed for One Thousand And One Arabian Nights. As it was we stayed for ten wonderful days.
What you have here is a boutique hotel of the highest standard, a restaurant to match (which has its own superb reputation), an onsite Hamman, Cooking school, Jazz Bar, proximity to all that Marrakech has to offer, and service of the very highest quality. From the breakfast staff, room service, receptionists to Rachid in the Wine bar, you couldn't fault anything. And on top of that there's the bonus of the Kasbah Country Club, with the other facilities.
When we had a late flight home, a room of the highest standard was provided for us to relax and have a shower.

Myself and my Husband stayed in the Riad for a few days towards the end of our Honeymoon.
We had a fantastic stay, we found all staff especially reception and bar staff to be extremely helpful and friendly.

Lovely room that wasn't too noisy considering we were in the heart of the Marrakech but my favourites had to be the traditional Morrocan Spa and their Country club which had a pool and we could sit and relax.

Ghaffouli, General Manager at La Maison Arabe, responded to this review, 1 week ago
Dear Esteemed Guest,

Thank you very much for your kind words regarding La Maison Arabe, and for having posted the 1000th critique of our establishment on Tripadvisor.
We are humbled that so many people have taken the time to share their experiences at La Maison Arabe with other travellers.
When we opened the hotel 16 years ago – and many members of our 105-member staff have remained with us since then, including myself – we were testing uncharted waters in Marrakech; La Maison Arabe was the first riad-hotel property in the city, initially with 10 rooms.
Despite having grown over the years – today we offer 26 rooms and suites, 2 restaurants, a piano bar, a hammam/spa, a Moroccan cooking school, and an offsite country annex property – our staff has always strived to provide exemplary service, make our guests feel at home, and provide them with an authentic Moroccan experience; I am very proud of them all.
We appreciate the positive feedback you and so many guests have given us over the years, encouraging us to remain a sought-after and pioneering address in Marrakech.
