“fantastic stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

we stayed in "favorite" villa. excellent service by butlers, special thanks to concierge "sameer" for his recomendation for local restaurants and places to go in Marrakesh. only sad thing is that breakfast is too poor. we had option for breakfast at the room by butlers and that was superb BUT i feel sorry for other guest who would be having breakfast at the restaurant.
one of the best location in marrakesh. we spent minimum money on Taxi as complete city was reachable walking, including old city and french side of the city. night club and casino additional advantage. I have been to many destinations in world for Spa and this hotel offers you one of the best Spa with huge indoor swimming pool.
truely a memorable experience.
Thank you all my butlers you guys made it best!

My friend and I decided to go to Es Saadi Palace for my birthday in early December 2012. We had an amazing time. From the very moment we arrived the staff there couldn't do enough for us. We were initially greeted by lovely and welcoming staff offering us tea and cakes. The rooms were also beautiful. The resort was beautiful and luxurious. Great location. It has a club and casino attached, both of which were great. The concierge team were very helpful and we ended up going to amazing restaurants and on fantastic trips because of their recommendations. I would also highly recommend the quad biking and the traditional Moroccan cookery class in a Riad. The buffet at breakfast in the hotel was honestly one of the best I have ever seen in terms of quality and variety.
The only downside was that it could be quite noisy late at night when people came back from clubs in the early hours. Also, the food in the restaurant or for room service was incredibly over priced. We had the same meals in local restaurants down the road for a fraction of the prices we paid in the hotel. The same goes for alcohol in the hotel.

Room Tip: We had one of the basic suites and it was lovely so I can only imagine how lovely some of the other...

my cousin and i acquired an excellent deal to this resort and after reading the rave reviews we were not disappointed. upon arrival we were greeted to a friendly door man who served us tea, we checked in quickly and were dazzled at the spacious, luxurious and phenomenal palace. Our room was a decent size with a balcony overlooking the atlas mountains and exceptionally clean and comfortable. the palace boasts a huge spa along with 2 swimming pools, a gym and 4 restaurants. the location is set in a desirable area not too far from the jema el fna, and also has access to a casino and nightclub.

the staff were extremely helpful and overall the service was impeccable. would highly recommend this to anyone who may not want to be within the rush of the medina walls all the time. would stay again.

Room Tip: rooms on the south side face the atlas mountains the main pool.

We really enjoyed this hotel until we were asked to pay for wine we had not drunk at dinner.  We asked for a receipt when we paid in the restaurant but the waiter gave us one for red wine not the bottle of white we had paid for and kept in the restaurant fridge overnight. Then the concierge said we hadn't paid until we remembered we never ordered red. Honest mistake?  We didn't think so and it left a nasty taste. Apart from that the hotel is very beautiful, set in huge splendid gardens with great pools. Rooms are lovely too. Dinner service was sometimes somewhat surly and tips are assumed by not returning with change which annoys. Perhaps that was the reason for the wine deception. Such a shame because it is a stunning property. 

Room Tip: Rooms facing gardens/pool are best but are more expensive.

One can only say "Wow!" (and "sorry I can't stay longer") after experiencing this exceptional property and service. "Wow" when entering the hotel room for the first time (and I was only staying in a "standard" room). "Wow" when venturing into the gardens and pool area. "Wow" about the exceptional service and offers to assist. Any shortfalls are only nitpicking but let's list them just to be totally transparent.

1) Only one elevator to the rooms .
2) No buffet breakfast (at least during my 2 night stay) -- everything was ordered a la carte. However, service was generally speedy and accurate. Try the Moroccan pancakes!
3) Fitness room is huge, with lots of brand new equipment. They have a small ant problem and so I decided not to do my stretches on the floor.

I heard the Spa was "very expensive" so I didn't venture in except to use the complimentary Fitness Room (only open from 9 a.m. - 9 pm).

None of the above detracts from my overall five star rating, and great desire to return here. And for those who might be wondering, although La Mamounia has the reputation (well deserved) for its full top-notch experience, Es Saadi Gardens - Palace can be half the price and thus a much, much better deal for basically the same experience.

Room Tip: Face the pool, if at all possible.

This is an incredible five star experience. The rooms are huge - suites in fact, and the bathrooms are the size of many hotel rooms. Gym was good, and overall service was excellent. Breakfast was a large buffet. It was unfortunate I had no time to enjoy the incredible grounds and outside pool, nor the spa.

If you want to spoil yourself, come stay here. This may well be the finest hotel experience you ever have.
