From the moment we arrived I loved the personal attention. Secured entrance, valet parking, rose petals were thrown at you, check inn comfortably in the lounge sipping a mint tea. Room was shown (very nice indeed) although slight odour in the bathroom. Before making any comment our mayordome allready checked and prepared an other room "where we could be more at ease" as he noticed a slight dissapointment on our faces...(really??) We were delighted. As it was valentines day, half a bottle of Laurent Perrier was served with chocolate. We had a hammam experience in the HUGE hammam that was very warm. Dinner was very nice, Breakfast in the room was delicious. Check out was easy and "maccarons" were given to us. Even a minor thing as have been charged for a couple of glasses of champagne (that we didn't take) was rectified very gently and professionally. Valet parking and bye bye back to real life. Even half a hour later we were still in a dream...
We experienced a very professional and attentive and smiling staff paying attention to every little detail. We hope they can keep things that way.
For those who compare the Taj in Morocco with those in India. Be aware and conscient that getting professional and efficient staff is very very difficult in Morocco and almost every hotel or restaurant (even the good ones) have to deal with lack of attention or "savoir faire".
