This is the best hotel I have ever visited. Every aspect about it is outstanding.
Service – the concierge was helpful, knowledgeable and extremely impressive. No matter who was on reception they were able to advise on local information such as a good restaurant, or a good place to buy pastries. They made and altered reservations for us, ordered taxis, and generally made life easy and pleasant. EVERY member of staff smiled, greeted us, and were helpful if queried.
Rooms- we stayed in two rooms during our two stays here. Each room was a marvel and I wish we could have spent more time in each. The bathrooms are like your own hamam with giant baths, gold basins and ornate fittings. The rooms are spacious with sitting areas, wonderful antique lamps and furniture, and all leading to a peaceful courtyard so you can sleep soundly with no clue you are in a busy city. The impression is of so much history but with all the modern conveniences such as underfloor heating and air conditioning, hidden behind ornate wooden panels.
Hotel – the hotel is wonderfully luxurious and spread out yet feels cosy and intimate thanks to the five courtyards. The décor is spectacular and really feels as if you are living in a sultan’s palace from a bygone era. The pool is refreshing and glamorous, the food is so good we could never decide whether to eat the same amazing dish again or to try something new; it never mattered as it was all fantastic. It was a nice touch to have cooling mist spraying over the roof terrace to keep us cool during the day. I particularly liked the personalised news summary of English affairs each morning over breakfast. The live music during supper was enjoyable.
Location – right in the heart of the city, yet a tranquil oasis away from the lights, smells, crowds of the souks and main square. Could not be better placed, and when sitting around the pool, admiring the palm trees and columns, the contrast is un believable.
Spa – the spa looks beautiful, however the hamam we experienced wasn’t as good as others we have had over the years. The girls doing the scrub and wash were not friendly and chatted to each other throughout, ignoring us. This is the only, tiny issue and we returned with glowing skin after treatment.
Summary – not only will I stay here on future trips to Marrakech, I love the hotel enough to make a trip here purely to re visit the hotel. We have recommended this hotel to all our friends especially those looking for honeymoons. This is a stylish, yet traditional riad, extremely luxurious and with impeccable service. I cannot rate this highly enough as a base to explore Marrakch, the Atlas, or even just for a relaxing week in a stunning environment. You could spend a week within the walls, never leave, and have a wonderful break.
