I am also a little loathe to write a review on this hotel as I would love to keep it a secret. This hotel has the ambience of a private house. The staff are excellently managed by the delightful Manager, Tariq, and are superbly discreet, so much so, that you feel that you are alone in the place, but they are there on tap when you should want something.
The room was faultless, and spotlessly cleaned everyday. We marvelled at how many different
" arrangements" they found for our night clothes every day!
Evening time, someone will have been in to turn down the beds and light the room for you and put the air con on. There were lovely welcoming touches like fresh flowers, petals strewn, a good merlot and a fruit basket and selection of local dates / sweets. Everything you would expect from a 5 star hotel.
They even brought out a birthday cake for my friend on our first night as it had been her birthday just three days before we flew out.
Food was wonderful, and plentiful too. Menu was the same for lunch, differed for evening meal, but was repeated for the week. Not a problem as there was enough choice to have something different every day. The 5 course breakfasts kept us going into the mid afternoon and we ate late in the evening in the gardens. One noisy frog was a subject for many conversations! This is the place you come to wind down and re-charge. We spoke in whispers when we first arrived as it just as that vibe about it.
A driver is on hand if you want to go anywhere, and the hotel give you your own mobile phone to contact him and reception.
There is a spa here as well which is worth a bash, especially the hammam for the paper pants alone!
The bill was settled at the end of the stay and was spot on. You are not asked your name or room number at any time.
I really could not have expected anything better from this trip and the Palais will be my return house of choice for the future for when batteries need re-charging.
Refined elegance out of the bustle of Marrakech.
