Corail Hotel
Ranked #470 of 501 Hotels in Marrakech
Reviewed March 25, 2014

Travelled with 20 students for our first and last nights in Morocco, either end of touring the mountains and desert. You have to take into account that this is a 3* hotel and also remember that it does not correlate to a UK 3*. Generally speaking European hotels are overrated by one star and other countries (except USA and maybe Aus/NZ) are another star below that. The entrance is rather nice, we were greeted by friendly attentive staff. I had a different room on each of the two nights we stayed there (being a week apart) and apart from a loose toilet seat, both rooms were fairly clean (some dust around the first but no soiling of any kind). Missing plugs in basins are the norm for most establishments in that country. Space and furnishing level is obviously variable as with any hotel in the world according to price. For the level of hotel, food choice was reasonably better than average with good quantity. The bar was open and also the coffee shop when we were there. Wifi seems to be only available in the Reception/Pool/Bar area - but you're on a break, get over it. We gained no impression of unwillingness on the part of the Staff. This is a budget hotel so don't make criticisms around 4* expectations. 15th and 21st March, 2014.

Stayed for 5nights. Very helpful staff. We stayed on 4th floor. View was amazing facing the theatre. Souk was 5mins drive away hotel is near very good breakfast and dinner places. They cleaned our room on a daily basis and even tidied up my dressing table mess. Only problem was they didnt change a towel they provided. I used my own towel but used theirs once to dry my feet with, and left a mark on a towel, they put it back neatly with the others during the cleaning. Lift door closes pretty quick and has no sensor on it. You have to hold on to the button to keep it open. They have a small paddling pool which is placed in a very public area near check in and the bar so no one ever uses it.

The hotel could have been great, but needs some maintenance. When we arrived the key card wouldn't work. Then they couldn't find the right key for the safe. We had to change rooms. The electrical sockets did not work until we complained, light bulbs were out and the room was rather dirty round the edges. We were 3 sharing and the number of towels left for us varied and we had to ask more than once. Staff were however quite good and very helpful. Breakfast was a good continental one. Some websites say there is a hair dryer but we didn't have one. They are building the pavements towards town, but it was easy to get a taxi by standing in the centre pavement.

The hotel looks quite impressive, BUT!
Good things
The rooms are of a good size and not bad, beds comfy, bathroom fine.
Some staff where very very helpful, others not at all or just indifferent.
BAD Things
Other than the room and breakfast you can get NOTHING.
No bar, No water, No Money exchange, No cafe, No Tea or Coffee.
Luckily we were so busy with our own guide we just slept there and had breakfast on a very busy short break, and it was a cheap flight and hotel deal.
I would HATE to stay here for a real holiday

What a filthy place. There were ants on the floor of our 3rd floor room, no toilet paper an ancient towel the size of a hand towel for 2 of us to share, mould on the shower curtain, and rings galore on the bath. The plug sockets were hanging off the wall, the tiny rug filthy
we stayed 20 mins until we moved out.

Hmm, well it looks good enough and quite impressive, rooms BIG, clean, comfy BEDS. Some staff beyond out of there way to be helpful and were, others just there.It was once a great hotel, I think the management maybe just not bothered out of season. but it has nothing, other than breakfast it has NOTHING, you cannot even get a coffee, water, drink of any kind, just very bizarre. Thankfully we had organised all our time before we arrived, and just had 2 very busy days, and 3 nights at hotel, BUT I could not imagine staying here for a saved up holiday, this hotel was part of a cheap deal we booked with this hotel as the only option in it.

The Corail Hotel is ok, it's staff are fine but not over motivated. The location is not bad but you get what you pay for. Cheap and basic. They clean the rooms everyday but the staff can only work with what they have. One thing I will say is be cautious about booking any trips with the agent at the reception. We booked a trip to the waterfalls and discovered we were charged much more than the other people on the trip. If your expectations aren't too high it fulfills you requirements.
