We have stayed here in March 2012 but I still can remember how beautiful this hotel is. It is located in Medina, few steps away from the shops and just few minutes walk to Jemaa El Fna.
The hotel is located off the main road so in the beginning we were very scared to get off from the taxi because it;s not only that we were ripped off, we also can not see any sign of this hotel from the main road, However, the moment we arrived at the premises of Riad Palmier, we were greeted by their staff who made us a traditional Moroccan tea. The owner then explained the map of Marrakech to us suggesting the things we need to see, places to eat, etc.
The breakast is served whenever you want, whatever you want, and wherever you want. So we had breakfast by the pool which was good, breakfast by the terrace and breakfast by our balcony which was a nice touch. The food is fresh and the bread taste like it's just baked. I can not fault the breakfast nor the service we receive from everyone at the hotel.
As we were a bit hesitant to eat outside during our first few days in Marrakech, we were having our dinner in the hotel which was delicious. The food, although I am not an expert on Morroccan kitchen, tasted so fresh and home-made. The portions were also very big. 1 dish was enough for 2 people.
In the evening, the pool is graced with big floating candles giving a romantic feel.
The owners were very nice and helpful. I had a problem with my bank card during my stay and the owner let me use her phone to call long distance for free.
We also asked the staff to help us book bus tickets as well as booking a table for dinner which they were very happy to oblige.
Overall, this hotel is great!
