Dellarosa Hotel Suites & Spa
Ranked #35 of 300 Specialty Lodging in Marrakech
Reviewed August 4, 2011

We arrived and were greeted with mint tea and cakes which was a nice touch. The staff also got us a room early which was good but when we got up there it was a twin (should have been a double). We didn't want to wait around so bearing in mind the beds were pushed together, we decided to get on with it. The room was nice with minibar and flatscreen tv- the only thing I could pick a hole in the finish of the bathroom; tiles were poking out and there were stains on the bath.
Breakfast was nice and there was a choice of fresh fruit, pastries, scrambled eggs, olives, meats and cheese.
We had a massage there and it seemed that they are all on par in price. The massage was ok.
The pool was clean and not very busy- although there are only about 6 sunbeds and the sun is only above it for a couple of hours each day.

Dellarosa has an impressive lobby/bar area & extemely helpful staff, they couldn't do enough for you but not once did we feel pressured to tip. The spa in the basement of the hotel is lovely, everyone gets a complimentary jacuzzi/relaxation session however booking a time slot is strongly recommended, we went down there on our last morning before we had to leave but none of the time slots left suited us unfortunately (our own fault!)

The rooms were decorated daily with rose petals & towels put into shapes, towels & bedding changed daily. Only down point was for some reason every morning we had ants in the sink, which had crawled out onto the benches. Don't let this put you off though, they were very small & clearly coming up through the plug hole (it was a bit slack so I couldn't block the little buggers out!)

We had a large very balcony but it seemed that only the rooms on our floor had these, all the rooms above us appeared to have small windows only (although they may have had balconies elsewhere that I couldn't see!) The TV in the room was all French channels other than Fox Movies & BBC World News (which I'm sure news would be the only thing you'd need the TV for anyway).

The breakfast included was pretty basic - pastries, cereal, fruit, one type of meat & scrambled eggs (although these were cold all 3 mornings we were there). It was acceptable for what we wanted & the price we paid, however if we were there for a whole week I wouldn't of been happy.

The pool area was lovely but it was in shade for the whole day, the water therefore being icy cold. I assume like us most people going to Marrakech aren't going to sunbathe, so this didn't bother us whatsoever. There is a lovely roof terrace on the top of the hotel which is worth going up to just to take some photos, but you could probably take a sun lounger up there if you did want to sunbathe.

There must have been works going on at the hotel while we were there, because there was loud banging from 8am everyday. Again didn't bother us because we were up at that time ready to explore! We didn't hear the banging on an evening.

Another thing to note (if you didn't know this already) is that there are prayers regularly throughout the day, we were woken up at 5.20am everyday! Although they don't last long so you quickly drift back off, and they're quite pleasant to hear if I'm honest :)

General Assistance on Marrakech.....

The hustle & bustle of Djeema El Fna is what makes Marrakech great, however do watch out for the snakes & monkeys, as soon as they "on you" the men demand money, this goes for taking photos too (of anything, they expect money!). I got collared by a henna lady on my first day, I walked off told her I wasn't interested, however she was very persistent & grabbed my hand promising just to "show me the type of thing she can do if I want to come back & get it another day", I naively believed this then she superfast covered my hand in henna & demanded £50!! I refused, walked off, but she kept grabbing me, in the end I think I gave her £5! As long as you take this type of "attention" with a pinch of salt you'll love everything about Marrakech.

The Souks are never ending with lots of really good buys & bargains! Make sure to haggle lower & lower, they will always give in rather than not get a sale, no matter how low you go. I ended up getting a big real leather satchel for 150DH (he originally wanted 650DH!) There are hundreds of good fake sunglasses & converse trainers, again shop around because all souks/stalls charge different prices, you'll end up paying 20D for something then walking 2 mins around the corner to find the same item is only 5DH!

Alcohol can be expensive due to the fact that not alot of places sell it (especially in the main square). We ended up finding a few hidden gems though because of this. Just make sure to ask restaurants/cafés/bars if they serve alcohol before going in. "La Maison de Marrakech" is down a scary alley off the Main Square, we just had a few drinks in here but it was beautiful inside, a really impressive restaurant so if it hadn't of been our last night we definitely would've went back here for dinner.

We done the Marrakech bus tour for 145DH each (approx £12) which we thought was a bargain. You got headphones with translation in whichever language you required, we chose to sit upstairs with the open top as it was very hot. We stayed on the bus for the full tour (1 hour 30 mins), however you can get on & off as many times as you want if you do want to explore each place further, your ticket lasts for 24 hours for this reason.

When walking back to hotel from Main Square we recommend walking through "Cyber Park", it's really tranquil and a nice change from the other side of Marrakech. It was created for teenagers with free outdoor wi-fi throughout the gardens, there are lots of locals sitting there pleasantly on their laptops, or playing guitar.

Taxi from the airport should be max 100DH - We landed at 9pm so they all kept saying 150DH due to "night rate", however he eventually accepted 100DH as we'd read on reviews before going. "Petit Taxi" are small cars, and are always much cheaper than the "Mercedes" taxi's, if there are just 2 of you it is definitely worth sticking to the Petit Taxi's.

Finally a good map is a must! We used it constantly & would literally have been lost without it (we still got lost!) The "Rough Guide Map - Marrakech & Essaouira" is the best one, we got it off amazon for about £5, and the Lonely Guide Morocco/Marrakech book is great, we found alot of restaurants & bars & general cultural advice from reading it.

Restaurants.....

"Namwara" was beautiful Thai & Moroccan food, VERY VERY impressive inside, very romantic whilst also having varied classy entertainment (fire eaters, stilt walkers). Cost was 700DH for 1 bottle of wine & 2 mains, so it's not "cheap" but it was well worth it.

"Marrakechi" has the best views in Marrakech, right over the souks & the main square. We went into the restaurant the afternoon before & reserved a table, we managed to get the best seats in the house right on the top floor in the very corner, we got some beautiful sunset pictures. We were seated at 7.30pm so we got to appreciate the views in the light as well as after it got dark, I would definitely recommend doing the same. They had a peaceful Moroccan band for dinner music, then when it got really late & the restaurant was a bit more lively there were belly dancers (who were amazing, and I've seen a few in my time). Cost was 800DH for 2 mains, 2 desserts, 4 beers, 1 glass of wine & 1 mojito - bargain!

"Riad Omar" is just off the Main Square, we went there for lunch one day & it was great. Very busy with locals & tourists, decor was very traditional with bright cushions & drapes. We ordered a tagine each & they automatically brought out a selection of Moroccon starters (ALOT) followed by a selection of fresh fruit, then fresh mint tea with Moroccan biscuits. The bill was very cheap for what we had, and it was all fabulous!

I hope this proves useful in some way, we can't wait to go back to Marrakech!

The day I arrived saw the untimely death of one of the hotel's parrots (who live next to the spar). It could have been a bad omen, but this hotel delivered on almost every level. The staff really are good, especially the women - they are some of the best trained customer facing staff I have seen in Maroc. Excellent English, very friendly and go out of their way to make sure things go as well as possible.

Hotel is very European 2000/noughties in its appearance - am not sure how well it will age. But it has some interesting design features that almost make it quirky, such as portals out to the pool and partial glass flooring looking down to the basement.

I missed every breakfast - so cannot comment on food, except to say the restaurant looked pretty deserted in the evenings and seemed to have a very limited set menu. I have no idea if the hotel did food room service, as there was no menu in my room. A glass of wine took 40 mins to arrive, but that was when the boys were in charge! Nonetheless, every member of staff did their best and were friendly.

Room was spacious, though mini bar was not stocked - do these people not run a business?! Facilities eg flat screen TV were good, as was the contemporary bathroom.

Spa was fine, if somewhat past its best, but the jacuzzi (which has to be booked in advance) was OK.

Bedroom was immaculate, air conditioning was exceptional, gym was good for a hotel this size with a mix of cardio and free weights (added benefit of an in-house trainer!).

Location is good, with reasonable selection of local restaurants including Lebanese and Thai. Some readers may note that on taking a taxi back in the evenings from the main square to Place Liberte near the hotel you could see from the window everything or nothing at all, depending on your perspective. It redefines the word 'awareness'.

I would highly recommend this hotel to young couples who want something more familiar and easy to get to than a Riad but don't want to pay high prices. Five to ten mins to main attractions and fifteen to twenty from airport. Taxis readily available outside and petit shops next door for water/fruit etc. Big bonus: excellent free wi-fi - simple to set up (get the pass from reception), very good quality. Has a little business room if you don't have your devices. I just wish the place had a bit more natural and artificial light!

We found the hotel on the internet and with trepidation took a chance. It was the best hotel we stayed in on our trip to Spain and Morocco. The hotel was beautiful and immaculate and the staff was very courteous, professional and friendly. There is a swimming pool, spa, exercise room and large buffet breakfast. All were great. I very much appreciated being able to utilize the up to date exercise room and my twenty one year old daughter took full advantage of the pampering in the spa facilities including a massage and manicure. The location was also perfect. It was about halfway between the new part of the city and the Medina and both were easily walkable.

The Delarossa is a great hotel. We stayed in a Junior suite and it was enourmous !! We didn't really need the kitchen / dining facilities but it was nice to have the extra space to relax in. I think you have to ask for the mini bar & coffee facilities to be stocked up and for utensils. The room was spotlessly clean and we had decent towels white and fluffy - hurrah !!! The air con was leaking in our room when we arrived but when we came back from our walk it had been mended - spot on with no fuss.

In terms of location its a 10 min (150 - 200 dhr 2pax) taxi ride from the airport so great not to loose hrs getting to / from the airport. Its a 10 - 20 min walk (depending on heat and energy reserves) to the Jemel fna square. We felt perfectly safe day or night a smashing walk along wide tree lined boulevard. The traffic is a challenge if anyone understands the road system please share !!! Surviving each crossing all part of the fun !!! Its also about 10 min walk to the Majorelle gardens and probably 15mins to the Menara Gardens or the Mammounia Hotel. Its more in the new town area so feels more european - but light sleepers beware the call to prayer is VERY Loud !!!!!

The hotel has a small pool which looked very clean, a spa and a nice little bar with a chap playing the piano - the blues were excellent as was the mint tea.

If you are using the kitchen facilities we noticed that there is a small shop selling fruit and veg n stuff next door which is handy. On the other side is a mercedes garage if you have a few bob spare !!!

The only downside we would say was breakfast, just not really to our taste we preferred the offerings at 'Berts' just around the corner.

The staff at the Della Rosa Hotel were friendly and helpful and anyone who found otherwise should examine their own attitude. We arrived 2 hours early and were upgraded and given instant allocation to a suite with kitchen/sitting room, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms etc and 3 flat screen TVs (we had booked 2 rooms). The rooms were clean, but basic. The continental breakfast provided a wide range of choice, the orange juice was fresh (not processed, but was watered down. It was possible to exchange currency and arrange trips at the reception desk. The hotel was located in the new part of the city, which is rather smart. The hotel is approximately a 25 minute walk from the Jemaa El Fna Square. Eating out: There are restaurants near to the hotel, otherwise there is a wide range of restaurants in the Medina. Try one of the Riads and eat from one of the stalls in the Jemaa El Fna Square in the evening. The restaurants around the square also provide low priced menus. The Fantasia evening should not be missed. You can book it at the hotel. Where ever you go you will need plenty of small change for tips. The taxis and horse carriages are cheap if you barter, but the price of the taxis is higher in the evening (use the petite taxis for a lower price).

I stayed at the Dellarosa for one week in January, and the welcome was great, friendly and personallised!
The reception staff could not have been more helpful if they tried.
All waiters and waitresses being in the restaurant and the bar, were always there to help, answer queries, and always there doing their job, well and in a very friendly way. Will stay there again on my next visit to Marrakech.
