“Smell the money!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

A great place to go for a few hours down time after the madness of Marrakech. I went with 4 female friends as part of a busy hen weekend. Sunbeds are approx £23 for the day and you can't take your own drinks but it's still a touch of serious luxury, great for people watching (rich people!) and topping up the tan whilst feeling slightly waggish. Water is approx £6 for a litre bottle and it's served in an ice bucket so keep dropping the cubes in the glass and make it last all day!
I only gave it 4 stars because the prices really are ludicrous!

“Nikki beach is quite we expected but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2011 via mobile

Music is great, setting is perfect, cultural mix sticks to what you'd expect in Morocco. Staff is nice and professional but some of them need to be reminded that they are here to serve and not to be arrogant. The bad thing is that we went to have lunch. We sat at the table at 13:55 and ordered a starter and a main dish. The started came 28 minutes after we ordered as for the main dish it was already 15:00 and we did not get it. Actually we lost our appetite and became grumpy. So we decided to cancel the order. The waiter was courteous as he apologized and we ended up paying for the main dish. They could have offered us a drink or so but this did not happen.

Overall it was a good exPerience to the exception if this one incident.

“VIP - make sure you take plenty of cash!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2011

We recently went on a Hen Do to Marrakech and thought we would treat ourselves to a day at Nikki Beach.

I am sure you are already aware that it is an exclusive venue so it is very pricey!

Can of Sprite was 80 Dirham!

Bottle of Rose - 650 Dirham

10 bottles of Champers - £10,000!!!! We gave this a miss! LOL

Lunch was fairly reasonable as we shared several starters.

The ambiance is amazing!!! Chilled music to start....then getting louder and more up beat as the day goes on!

The beds are lush and the pool very refreshing!

A fab spot to treat yourself too!!

“If they were nice...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2011

The worst of Nikki Beach: the staff!
I understand they have to make you spend money, but I would have spent more if they didn't pressure me! They have to realize that not everybody wants champagne or a 2L bottle of wine...
The pool is great, the scenario very fine and the music top!
The food was too expensive but was tasty: 34€ for a beef and a Corona!
A good place for a different afternoon that would be great if the staff were different!

It is true that Nikki Beach is an upmarket, exclusive beach/ pool resort hosting events such as The Global Party 2011. The majority of our clientel are already familiar with other Nikki Beach venues or treat themselves to a luxurious day lounging and enjoying the fantastic food in the restaurant. The large champagne bottles are part of the Nikki Beach athmosphere that many people come for and the staff would have offered what they think our guests expect. I'm sorry to hear that in your case it was not what you wanted however very happy to hear that you found the food tasty. This is exactly what many people enjoy - having brunch / champagne breakfast is very popular here.

“An embarrassment to the name”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2011

Nikki beach in Morocco is totally an embarrassment to the ''Nikki Beach'' brand, I partied and still do at the one in Miami beach and it's night and day, the pool is dirty, the staff is arrogant and do a mediocre job at attending to the people around the pool, the prices are outrageous for no apparent reason, the hosts in the front are scary and stiff. So sad considering how excited we were to visit. Very disappointing :(

Nikki Beach Marrakech will have a different athmosphere to Nikki Beach in other destinations. It is difficult to please all guests as other reviews stated staff were overly attentive. We try to find a happy balance that actually pleases the majority of our guests. Unfortunately not everyone can be pleased. Prices are standard for the service and amenities provided. Food and drinks are a little higher than in the average restaurant or bar. This is to be expected at an exclusive resort like Nikki Beach.
