“Walkin for dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Excellent restaurant and service after we walked in for dinner without a reservation in December 2012. Restaurant was not open but we were taken to a beautiful room with fireplace and ordered drinks with some munchies. We waited till the restaurant opened and had excellent service as well as a very tasty meal with Moroccan wine.

This is an absolutely wonderful hotel. Small, luxury and absolutely focused on treating each guest special.
We stayed for 4 nights and it ticked every box. Authentic, luxury, central to everything and a little piece of paradise in a hectic place.
We had a lovely little courtyard room which was filled with fresh roses each day and the decor was beautifully authentic.
I cannot think of anything else to except, if u r looking for Moroccan luxury with a person touch, then this is it!

La Villa des Orangers is expensive, but really worth it. It is exquisite; the service is great; and the hotel is gorgeous. Three swimming pools, lots of rooms to hang out in, fireplaces (including in your room). The food is fantastic, the staff wonderful. It's the little touches that count. In your room rate is included car service to and from the airport, a cell phone, breakfast, lunch (which is a wonderful three course event), all your drinks except for alcohol, and laundry. Dinner is a bit pricey, wine even more so, but still a great experience. The hammam is terrific and the massage was wonderful. I can't imagine a better place to stay. Although if the price turns you off, please consider the Riad Knisa, which is also wonderful.

Room Tip: If you can afford it ask for a room at the top with private terraces and a rooftop pool.

Love love love this place. My travel agent recommended it, so even though I'd heard of a buInch of other luxury hotels close-by and had never heard of if before, I went with it. Great decision!

The food is pheonomenal. The lamb 3 ways at dinner was fantastic, and my favourite lunch meal was the actually the lamb also (loin I think). Not sure how they provide such good lamb in Morocco but they do. The restaurant, cigar cave, bar, and multiple private hang out spots as well as the pool area, are all really thoughtfully and stylishly decorated. The whole place feels very Moroccan and very chic, quite modern but subtle.

The rooms...really impressive. So many small details so well taken care of. I'd a huge bathroom, with a massive tub, huge marble sinks, rainforest shower and locally made jasmine soaps. The bedroom had beautiful local art, a working fireplace with cool billows, leather couch and the bed had great sheets. There was a terrace with loungers, a private dining table and an outdoor shower. Can't think of anything more they could have provided.

Service was great from start to finish. The manager Jean-Paul welcomed me when I arrived and assisted me with local recommendations, ensuring everything was perfect throughout my stay. I was reluctant to leave, and plan on coming back as soon as I have the chance. Marrakech is great, but this hotel made it world class. It truly inspired me, and I get excited even now thinking about that trip!

We visited early November 2012 (2 couples and 2 teenage daughters). The hotel is beautiful and the staff delightful. Having asked for advice about sending a potential carpet home, they didn't bat an eyelid when a carpet seller from the souk turned up with 4 carpets and wrapped them in the hotel. They then took them to the courier's office and sent them home for us! Genuinely good service. The rooms are lovely with great bathrooms. The staff are discreet, informal and friendly. The hotel feels like a very civilised house party. All the other guests were French and no children, but our girls were made to feel very welcome. We had a hammam and it was very good, definitely an experience not to be missed. Also, having had very mixed food in Marrakech (we also ate at the Foundouk, Sultana and Mamounia's French restaurant) the food at the hotel was the best we had. Having been lost in Marrakech once too often staying in a riad in a maze of alleys, the location of the Villa on a road near the Koutoubia mosque means you can walk everywhere even late at night and still make it home. Don't underestimate this when choosing your riad! We loved it and wouldn't consider anywhere else.

Hidden in the side streets- you wonder if they have stopped at the wrong place. But step inside the narrow corridor to the hotel and you have a beautiful peaceful hotel. Lovely courtyard, beautiful rooms, excellent bathrooms. Very easy to walk into the main square, enjoy the madness of the night market. The food in the hotel was very good. Lunch included which was a bonus and very tasty. Staff were very helpful - such as arranging a caleche for us at a sensible price. Lovely with our teenage girls.

Room Tip: As far as I could tell all rooms were good. We were on the ground floor and found rooms quiet, spaci...

Excellent value for money our room rate included airport transfer, lunch on arrival and breakfast. If this is your first visit to Marrakech this is a great place to stay, a very easy walk to the main square and souks, the hotel offers a safe haven from the chaos of Marrakech, the staff are excellent, our room was stunning.
