We hadn't been to Marrakech and had always wanted to go, and recently booked a trip through Secret escapes to Villa Makassar. The hotel frontage was a door through a wall in Old Town, which was perturbing to begin with, but became one of its charms. In the centre of things, this hotel is not, but it's only a 15...

We were there just before NY eve. Wonderful art-deco hotel located at 10 minutes easy walk from the main Marrakech place. Our suite was just amazing with a wonderful art-deco style. Our Christmas diner was not bad but not amazing but not the most important. I could also recommend you the SPA there and massage with black soap, just perfect!...

Excellent service on the whole. Lovely hotel. We didn't get a chance to try the spa facilities as we were on a packed sight seeing schedule but we were shown around by the hotel manager who was very helpful. The roof garden is a nice pace to relax n the sunshine.

On our first trip to Marrakech, we were very lucky to choose Villa Makassar. Situated about 10-15 mins walk from the famous Jemaa el Fna at the south end of the Kasbah district near the old royal palace, the riad is an Art Deco project fusing classic Moroccan opulence and the golden age of jazz. The surroundings are very attractive...
