I am the owner of a travel agency since 18 years, and I travelled a lot - always to the best and poshest places around the globe. Therefore I am able to compare objectively and professionally what hotels are offering to their clients. What I can say about the Taj are superlatives! I loved this hotel from the bottom of my heart! It is an oasis of luxury, it is so quiet, so chic, so posh, so colourful! The staff is marvellous, they do everything to make your stay an unforgettable one. They do care a lot about you, they smile at you, and unlike in many other hotels in Marrakech, they are not snobby at all here at the Taj.
The building itself is palatial and very, very beautiful.
The lobby is breathtakingly magnificent in its opulence.
The gardens and pool area are too beautiful to be true - just marvellous.
There is a huge pool (40x40 meters)!
The rooms are very spacious, but there are no words to describe their beauty and their orgy of colours. 100 points for those rooms and suites!
The bathrooms are fabulous.
There is nothing that I could criticize, because those little things which did not earn a 100% from my side were compensated by others which earn 150%!
Quality of food was excellent. Service was excellent as well. The menu selection is sort of limited if you do not like Indian or Moroccan food. Breakfast is below expectations, and it is too expensive for what you find on the buffet. There could be really made improvements, if I may suggest so to the cooks. Have a look at the breakfast at the Delano and you will understand why I was disappointed about the Taj breakfast.
All in all I can only recommend this magnificent fairy tale hotel. The reason of my trip to Marrakech was to look at the 25 best hotels in and around town. If I could choose one of those 25 I would turn to the Taj. I loved it most. I felt super happy there. It is stylish but not snobby. And it is stunningly beautiful without being cool. The staff is superb and it is "my" beloved hotel in Marrakech. The rooms are 100% my taste, and in all Marrakech I did not find someone as smiling, friendly, helpful and professional as Mrs. Angela (front desk). Everything was superb here, and I allow myself to add that people who criticized things at this hotel on tripadvisor might have forgotten that Morocco is not Miami Beach or Hong Kong. The charming thing about the place is that things do not have to be as efficient and supersonic as in highly civilized places. Marrakech means 1001 nights. You have to bring along time, patience and comprehension for a different way of acting, as well as a different religion and mentality. Four Seasons might offer more perfect services, but I prefer 100 times the Taj because it is not overdone, not untouchable and not so perfect as everywhere else. But the Taj is my beloved place in Marrakech. It is perfect for me. It goes underneath your skin and you will never forget about it! Thanks to all the staff for everything you did for Gregory and myself. We loved every single minute, and all of you are great!
