We had our wedding at the Taj Palace Marrakech and it was a dream come true.
We started planning our wedding back in January and had the wedding here in June this year (we are currently on our honeymoon and have wasted no time in writing this review as there is so much to say!).
We honestly can not express our gratitude to all the members of staff here at the Taj - their service, patience and willingness to help in every matter to do with our wedding really blew my husband and I away.
Our wedding was definitely not an easy event to cater for either, we had a full 3 day Indian wedding with 5 events and we occupied the whole hotel with our guests who had travelled from all over the world to be with us. The food was incredible for all 3 days (all our guests also confirmed this), the service exceeded all our expectations (especially as we knew it would be a tough few days which involved a lot of late nights for many members of staff) and the general manner of those who worked here was always highly hospitable, kind, caring and very sweet. My husband, myself and many of our guests felt more like family rather than regular guests after spending our time here.
To be completely transparent, we only had one issue which was the air conditioning that did not work in some of the rooms and event locations but I have to stress this was purely a technical issue. As this problem occurred during the wedding and there were a few frustrated guests (due to the very hot weather and mentioned technical issue) we can only say how proud and happy we were to hear that the Taj handled the situation with integrity and a willingness to compensate not just the guests that were directly affected but our entire wedding party.
In short it is safe to say we could not have wished for a better location to have our wedding nor could we have wished for better people to have shared it with - these being not just being our guests but also the members of staff at the Taj. They really all deserve praise for all their efforts during this time and they all contributed to making our days very special for us. Nothing was ever impossible and every request we had, regardless of whether they were big or small, was carried out with care and effort beyond the call of duty.
We would really like to thank Mr Dino (General Manager) and all his staff for his approach towards ourselves, family, guests and our event as well as Karim/Angela/ Abdul Rahman and their team, Kamil and his team, Hamza and his team for their dedication to running our events very smoothly. Also we would like to specially thank Nizar (guest relations) and Salma (reservations) who not only contributed to the success of our wedding but definitely for their support to us personally - they really have become great friends to us.
Without a doubt we will be back again to visit this incredibly beautiful hotel and we are very confident that they will welcome us back with open arms!
Thanks again to everyone at the Taj for making our wedding so special and giving us the days we will never forget.
All our love, Jay & Sherina x
