We arrived very late in the night and had arranged a pick up with the hotel in advance. The flight was early but the driver was only five minutes away. Arriving late and having never been to Marrakech did mean that when no-one answered the door for a little while, we got a little on edge but then we were welcomed in, greeted by the hotel director and shown to our room which was a great size and beautifully presented - right down to the rose petals on the bed everyday!
The pool is a good size and it's very refreshing, you can have food by the pool when the Moroccan heat gets too much and take a dip too. It's incredibly relaxing which is exactly what you need when you've walked the streets of Marrakech.
Food-wise, breakfast was included and a wide selection provided, including the Moroccan pancakes. When we overslept on our first day, they kept breakfast running a little longer for us and that sort of detail is typical of the hotel. We also ate one evening meal there which was very nice and not unreasonably priced by european standards.
We also took a spa treatment which was brilliant and hugely recommended too, the price is reasonable and the treatments are very relaxing (enough to make you fall asleep). If your aim is as ours was, to have a relaxing getaway for four days, Les Borjs de la Kasbah is ideal - you'll feel welcomed and the staff are really helpful, the reception staff speak English perfectly although a little French is helpful at times.
I'd say this is a hotel for couples, friends or solo travel rather than families - who may want a more resort style hotel with more activities for the kids but there was a family staying there who seemed to be enjoying it as well.
