From the second we turned onto the stretching drive of the Taj Palace, I was in heaven and I stayed there until I left. The palace is stunning from the outside and enchanting from the inside. Any expectations I had were exceeded by far.
We stayed in a garden Riad room, which was gorgeous. A beautiful bed and decor, with a spacious changing area that leads onto a bathroom with bath, double sink and dressing table, and shower and toilet on the other side. On the ground floor, our room led onto a terrace with an enormous sofa and chairs. The room was kept immaculate and clean everyday and there was always a little treat waiting when we returned.
The staff at the Taj Palace made the real difference to our stay. They went above and beyond to help us with any questions we had or help we needed, as well as their attentive service during meal times, or even just by the pool by bringing a bottle of water, or a cool damp cloth for refreshment. Every single member of staff was friendly and greeted you as you walked by.
Everything was done to impeccable standards and with a smile.
Whilst I was there I lost a bookmark by the pool when a gust of wind came. The bookmark was entirely worthless, but held a sentimental value to me. When they saw I was looking for something, two members of staff came over and a number of them began looking for it for me despite the likelihood that it had been blown fairly far away!
The breakfast was delicious and had a variety of fruit, yogurt, cereal, pastries and a cooked breakfast.
The complimentary shuttle service to the City was an excellent surprise, reliable and comfortable.
I cannot praise the Taj Palace enough. This was a birthday celebration for me, and it was a memorable and magical experience. All I can say is, if you are going to Marrakech, you should definitely stay here.
