I spent 5 nights at the Taj Palce with my partner and we celebrated her Birthday whilst there. All in all we had an absolutely fantastic experience at this wonderful hotel and would highly recommend it to anyobe else. From the moment we arrived at the hotel we were made to feel genuinely welcomed by all of the staff and were greeted with Mint Tea, a Tour of the Hotel and an upgrade to a fabuously spacious and gorgeous Atlas Suite.
We ate in the Indian Mantra Restaurant the first night and the food was delicious, the service was amazing and we really enjoyed this experience. This set the tone for all of the meals which we had whilst staying at the Taj.
Breakfasts were a truely wonderful experience where we were guided to our seats by Mazem and his team and continually topped up with coffee, fresh orange juice fresh knives, forks and napkins. The Morroccan breakfast was highly recommended by Mazem and lived up to its expectations.
The entire Hotel is immaculately clean and sells absolutely gorgeous. Fresh flowers are in abundance throughout the corridors, rooms and reception areas and the actual builing has a really fragrant smell about it.
The pool area is amazing, the sun loungers smart, comfortable and come provided with fresh towels. The pool bar staff serve you with water as soon as you arrive at the pool and are always on hand to bring you coffee or fresh fruit cocktails.
The indoor pool in the spa is free to use and is like swimming in a large warm bath. Once again the loungers, robes and towels are provided and the staff serve you with mint tea upon arrival.
The suite we were upgraded to was spacious, well decorated, extremely clean and had a coffee machine provided which is topped up each day free of charge. The suite had 2 large flat screen televisions with a wide array of channels to choose from and a large log fire which the staff will light for you every eveing if you ask them to.
The bed was huge and comfortable and the bathroom and balcony area once again were huge, comfortable and spotlessly clean.
On 1 particular night when it was my Partners Birthday we returned to find the following. The log fire lit, candles lit all around the room, swans made out of towels, rose petals scattered around the bath and bed. They also provided a birthday cake which was and all in all the staff had made a really big effort.
The Taj is located a bit outside Marrakech itself but a free shuttle mini bus takes you into Marrakech itself 3 or 4 times a day. The last time is 1700 and you'll have to get a taxi back which will generally cost you 200 dirham which is roughly about £15.
All in all we had an amazing time at the Taj Palace. We were absolutley spoiled by the staff from Angela McGuire the Guest Relations Manager through to Hassan the Receptionist and Mazem who ran the breakfast and Pool areas. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and all of them were extremely polite, helpful and courteous.
I'd highly recommend staying at the Taj Palace. Its definitely an amazing place to look at at and stay in. The smiles and courtesy of the staff really adds to your experience and you'll always remember stsying there.
