It is genuinely impossible to understand what inspired anyone to build an hotel of this standard in Ifrane and then forget to tell anyone in their biggest markets that they had done so. 65km from Fes and 450 from Marrakech it is a world apart from both. The interior design is stunning and has the feel of a seriously upmarket ski hotel. Aspen hasn't got anywhere this well appointed and it could hold its own against Europe's most stylish alpine addresses. And yet Ifrane has a 2 month ski season in a good year, so this certainly wasn't built for that market. Go down to the basement, however, and Michlifen's USP becomes apparent. It has a world class spa, outstandingly well equipped. The indoor and outdoor pools are both vast and there is even an indoor volley ball court, in case you decide to bring your team. Anyone seriously considering a luxury spa break within 2-3 hours of most of Europe would be hard pressed to find anywhere more comfortable.
To be fair, the views are not in the same league as you will find at Kasbah Tamedot, but then Kasbah Tamedot isn't in the same league when it comes to facilities and room standards. Go during the week during term time and you will almost have the place to yourself. Go at week-ends or during school holidays and you will be surrounded by Morocco's financial elite at play. Just don't expect to see Europeans or Americans - they have no idea it exists!
