Travelled to Marrakech with my girlfriend and my parents for a 3 day get-away and could not have been more thrilled.
Thought it was a bit mad at first as we were led down a very busy, narrow, market street, really shocking your every sense, but then turned off down a small side street, rounded the corner and there was 'The Door'. No handle, just a bell. The sight of that door after pacing around Marrakech all day was absolute bliss!
The staff were all wonderful and friendly, eager to talk but not at all obtrusive, helpful, sweet and eager to please. Unlike some places, they almost felt on level footing with you, giving it almost the feeling of distant family - just honest good service. Wonderful.
Our room, the Johara Suite was just incredible. Even thought it was a junior suite, I'd say it was far more impressive than the senior suite my parents were in. It's situated in the new part, so is of course newer. Just beautiful.
The pool, the massage, the food, the roof top terrace - just heavenly.
If you're having a browse through to see what hotel you should stay at - stop stop stop. You found it :)
