We came to El Fenn for a couple of drinks and ended up staying all day / all evening. Jimmy’s service was exceptional. The best we’ve ever had. The spicy margaritas were wonderful and the rooftop is the best in Marrakech! The decor is amazing and the sunnnnnn!

The ambience and design of the hotel are very soul soothing, while the rooftop pool and restaurant areas have a really fun vibe. We went as a family with an 18 and 15 year old and all loved it. The reception were super helpful booking things and I would highly recommend.

Wonderful group meal on the terrace! 22 of us enjoyed Tagines, salads and cocktails which were all delicious, in a superb location, with impeccable service! Thank you so much for making it so special. Was very easy to plan with the concierge team. We will be back!

We love this photo! And so pleased to know you had such a great time. The roof top is an amazing space to bring a group for a special lunch or dinner. Thanks so much for taking the time to review. And we're delighted your experience was so good.

We had considered staying here but so glad we didn’t! We went for lunch to see what we had missed. A beautiful rooftop bar , worth a visit for the view but we found it very pretentious and had to wait 90 mins for our food and they were not over busy. When it finally arrived it was cold and the accompaniment of the meal was missing. I spoke to the waiter but was not offered a replacement, just a sorry! Must say the mock tails are great!

We're really sorry to hear you had such an unacceptable wait for your food. We'll definitely feed this back because such a long delay is understandably frustrating. It sounds like the rest of the experience was good which we're happy about. But do please visit us again on your next trip because we're all about making sure people leave with great memories of a visit and we'd love another chance to make sure you do too.

5* amazing stay at this wonderful Riad. Myself and my partner had 4 glorious nights here. Our room was beautiful. The vibe here is relaxed and friendly. Great service throughout our stay. Location is perfect for wandering around or just relax on the lovely roof terrace. I was sad to leave and will most definitely come back soon. Thank you to all the staff for a fantastic break.

We love our location too! For us, it's the best of both worlds - on the edge of the medina just a few minutes from the centre of town but also with easy access to the rest of beautiful Marrakech. We're so pleased you had such a great trip. We hope to see you again soon Madeline.

Super cool vibe at this Riad. Deep, rich colors and antique furniture mix together in a lovely way. My “large “ room was huge and had fun light fixtures and accessories. Moody is great, but there are times we need more light. I think it would be good to have lights by the bed that have a switch to bright. Overall the room was just too dark. Rooftop restaurant and bar are gorgeous. Food was good, service was ok. Very loud and busy place till around 10:30 and the noise reverberated around the Riad walls. The boutique has really special, high quality items.

Thanks so much for taking the time to review. And we're always delighted to know that people have enjoyed their stay. We note your comments on bedroom lighting. Riad rooms are built to be 'dark' in order to protect from sunlight and we of course really try hard to make sure the lighting is exactly right. We'll feed back your comments to the maintenance team. Thanks again!

We really felt pampered from arrival to departure. On the rooftop Jimmy went beyond his duties to make us feel welcome, at the spa the ladies were amazing and the room was just the best we ever stayed in, the bed and shower were top. We will definitely come back El Fenn!! ☺️

Although the staff is very nice, this hotel is so full of itself. The interior is chic but somehow just doesn't cut it. Maybe it just has gotten too big- supposedly when it was small it was great. Now it is just a very expensive place to stay, very meh. AND NOISY- the first night it was a crying baby at 4am, the 2nd night a huge fight on the roof terrace that continued outside, the 3 rd night someone smoking a cigar ( smelled in my room-whew!) and talking loudly all night. You can hear the people around you snore and fart! And the food is very mediocre. At breakfast the yogurt is watery, the fruit seems like it was cut up last week, the bread just okay. I would not choose this place again.

Thank you for sharing your detailed feedback, and we sincerely apologise for the challenges you faced during your stay. We appreciate your compliments on our staff's friendliness and chic interior. However, we deeply regret the inconveniences caused by noise disturbances and the perceived decline in the overall experience. Your comments are invaluable, and we will investigate these issues to make necessary improvements. We do shut down the roof terrace at 11pm to minimise any noise disruption to guests and as we are on the edge of the medina, you will sometimes hear noise that sounds as though it is within the hotel but in fact it can be from a couple of blocks away. We appreciate the proximity to a busy night time environment in the city is not for everyone.

We’ve been to Morocco before but had never been to El Fenn. Everything was wonderful for one simple reason … Mohamed the breakfast and lunch attendant was absolutely amazing, best hospitality and attention to detail. Made us and everyone around us feel like VIP’s, Thank you very much Mohamed, you are the reason we will soon come back to your beautiful hotel and restaurant.
