“Nice Short Break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

The Delano is a lovely hotel. Good location. Nice staff. I would say service was mixed. Like the service was very slow, You ordered a drink and it would take 30 mins to come but we kind of expected it from reading earlier reviews. Other things like the pool boy did not really help you at the pool area with towels and moving umbrellas. The Italian restaurant was meant to be from a Michelin chef but it was only average. Still a very nice hotel which I would recommend if you want something luxurious but cannot afford la mamouna.

I had a very similar experience to the review from another guest. The service at the Delano was terrible. For every request we made, the staff would say yes, but then nothing would be delivered. We had a similar experience with the check out process where they charged the full rate, even though I paid a deposit.
This hotel is not at all up to the Delano standard, that I have experienced in Miami.

I fully agree with the reviews that describe this beautiful hotel however having stayed at a local Riyad in the Medina i was very disappointed with the service at this fine hotel.
We attended a wedding at the Selman Hotel most of the guests stayed at the Delano. They were not prepared to handle a large group. Every other guest requested an iron with an ironing board we had to wait for 4 hours as soon as we arrived still no luck... we were so frustrated we spoke to the front desk manager Sarah who finally got our clothes pressed for us. The next three days was a battle every day to get the iron. The service was very slow the concierge was extremely rude and every time they arranged a taxi it included a commission for the door man.
The day we checked out it took us 3 hours to settle the bill because they did not understand that there was a deposit made prior to our arrival.Ten other guests went through the same ordeal. It was horrible:(( One of our good friends took 3 hours in the morning just like we did to finalize his bill, we left our suitcases with them until flight time at night. As we approached the front desk to pick up our bags they would not release my friend's bags stating he had not paid his bill!! The poor guy had to hunt for his receipts to prove otherwise not to mention the insult! The fact that we had to go through everything all over again made us late to the airport where we almost did not get on the flight! NEVER AGAIN!!

Stayed for 4 nights in early October 2013, last minute. Cheaper deal expired at end of Sept not extended, despite booking in Sept. Nice decor throughout hotel including rooms and bathrooms. High standard of finish to restaurant and bar areas. All staff very welcoming and spoke English well, all very happy to help on any request, although you might have to eventually get used to things being done in "Marrakech" time! If you want a drink at a bar, expect to wait 10/15 mins before you're served, 10/15 before you get your drink and 10/15 before you get the bill! All done with a smile though!! Food at breakfast was fairly standard for this level of hotel, food in Del Cafe really nice - chocolate fondant a must! Would stay again for proximity to Medina, view from rooftop pool, restaurants/hotels nearby and friendly staff. Manager (Sarah) deserves special mention. Spa/hamman nice but pricey. Downside: bars don't sell beer, but nice cocktails and wine. All in all - not the cheapest but bit more secluded and discrete than Sofitel and better quality than Hivernage Spa both nearby

Staying at the Delano Marrakech was a magical experience. We loved everything about it. The decor is beautifully exotic. Our room was cozy and quiet. (and amazingly ready when we arrived at 9am). There is an amazing rooftop bar/restaurant, along with a rooftop pool, with unsurpassed views of the city. We ate dinner at the hotel twice, once on the rooftop, and the other in a different restaurant on the patio. Not only was the atmosphere breathtaking, but it was some of the best food we have ever eaten. The service was superb, from head concierge, Ridouane Biiju, to housekeeping. The spa is beautiful and luxurious. The entire hotel is meticulously clean.

The only negative comment I have, is that to create a romantic ambiance, our room was very dark. It was sometimes hard to see, especially for ladies trying to put their makeup on! More light is needed! Otherwise, we were very pleased and and would definitely stay again!

Stayed for nearly a week in a lovely Executive Sweet. Gorgeous hotel with incredible style and beautiful local art throughout. Great room although brighter lighting might have been appreciated. Food was some of the best in Marrakech. Try the Panna Cotta or the Tiramisu in the Italian - ridiculously nice!

Staff in every department went out of their way to help, very nice people who always fulfilled requests with passion - but do agree that service in Marrakech generally is not as fast as London.

Room Tip: Floor 3 if you want a view...
