The hotel was generally very good... amazing staff and amazing facilities (pool/spa, etc.) but our room was not up to standard at all. We stayed in the opera suite, room 410... supposedly the best room type in the hotel. Unfortunately, the number and nature of the issues were just not what I would expect from a 5 star hotel. First...

My partner and I stayed at the Sofitel marrakech for 4 nights. We loved the hotel from the minute we arrived and were met by staff offering us mint tea and hot towels...a level of service we're not used to! Our room was lovely and the pool area was beautiful - you really feel you're in an oasis of calm...

Like any of the Sofitel Hotels this one is a masterpiece. The pools are amazing as are the lounges. Please allow yourself to be pampered at So Spa and if you've never had a traditional hammam, this is an experience for one who has never had a chance to enjoy the service. You'll be amazed in the dining room with...

after having spent the previous few days in the mountains and prior to the the desert, in smaller hotels we promised our 5 year old boy a big hotel with big pools for our last day in Morocco. Thus we chose the Sofitel. I saw that it didn't really have the best rating, but thought, it can't be that bad....

The hotel is well located and the service is welcoming. We had a great time in the swimming pool. The restaurant is nice for dinner. The reception is very efficient and they arranged a good restaurant reservation for us. We liked this hotel very much.

Our room - exec junior suite. Given the opportunity nothing is too much trouble for the staff. We have found from Housekeeping to the boys who get your taxi, not forgetting Management, that they are there to make your stay enjoyable, try talking to them.

At the foot of the High Atlas Mountains this hotel provides a comfortable base for exploring Marrakech. Located on the edge of Marrakech it is within a 15 minute walk to the Djemaa El Fna Square and the city's famous Medina. Multiply restaurants. internet access and two outdoor pools add to your comfort after a day of shopping and sightseeing...

Very beautiful hotel with great swimming pool, rooms are big and comfortable. It is just to spend time inside the hotel. Staff are not so great in English and takes them ages to serve the order. While on check in you have to wait minimum 30 mins to get to your room.

The Sofitel is a beautiful old building, but rooms need some updating. Small details often overlooked; service is friendly, but not always competent. When there are problems, staff are eager to correct them, but there are numerous small problems (problems with room, AC, service in the bars/ restaurants, laundry). Rooms are dark at best, and two burned out lights were...

Stay away. This is not a family oriented hotel. The minute they see you have a baby, they will place you in an isolated room with no view. We paid for a room with Atlas Mountains view, they said that only a room on the first floor was available. That room was dirty, it had a funky smell, a smell...
