“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

This is a relaxing and very quiet hotel there is no traffic or AC noise.
It is within walking distance of Koutoubia Mosque and Jemaa El Fna.
The food is excellent.
The staff were always polite and helpful.
I will definitely return to this hotel on my next visit.

Room Tip: Rooms overlook the pool

We spent 4 nights in a 4 bedroom ryad at the Naoura Barriere and we did not want to leave! Management was kind enough to upgrade us fro our 3 bedroom reservation to a 4 bedroom which was a generous gift. The accommodations were luxurious, the service impeccable and the hotel beautiful. Also, the location is perfect as you are able to walk to the Jemaa el-Fnaa, yet feel completed secluded when at the hotel. The restaurants were great and the breakfast buffet was really nice. I can not wait to return and would not consider staying anywhere else when in Marrakech.

Room Tip: Spurge on the Ryad. It is an experience.

Spent 4 nights in this exceptionally good hotel. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable with wonderful service from every member of staff we came in contact with.
Very pleasant pool area with ample room and facilities.
Taxis in marrakech cost very little however we prefer to walk where possible so you get to see and understand more. Naoura Barriere is perfectly situated for all central points of interest.
We travel worldwide on business and this rates as one of the best hotels we have stayed in in recent years.
Possibly due to the time of year, our balcony never seemed to get any direct sunlight, however that just makes us sound terribly fussy. It's a great place to stay and we thank them for making it so enjoyable.

Room Tip: Ask for sun on balcony

I'm actually staying in a very nice and luxury junior suite overlooking the swimming pool for a relaxing stay in Marrakech! service is good and the rooms are very well equipped with state of the art TV and Bose sound system. the hotel is very quiet but right in the medina.
BUT some disgusting acts are existing at the swimming pool! used towels romoved from from the vacated sunbeds are folded back and given back to new arriving sunbathers!!!!!
NO definitely not acceptable in a supposed to be 5* Ryan and hotel
I'm really disappointed and will never ce back ton this hotel where the rack rate is 500 €....

We have just spent a really lovely week here. It is rare that we book a large luxury hotel, especially in a hotel chain. So often we have found them pretentious, impersonal and offering style over substance. Having toured Morocco extensively before, we booked this simply to have a pampered break in the sun and it lived up to all expectations in every respect.
Our junior suite was hugely spacious and luxurious. Everything throughout the hotel was beautiful and modern and of excellent decor. The staff were delightful and helpful. The restaurant offered affordable fine dining. The bar was lovely, serving drinks with generous nibbles. Our room mini bar offered free drinks restocked daily and room service was quick and excellent with every request.
Breakfast was very pleasant outside and the pool was huge with high quality loungers.
The location was excellent, just a short stroll to the vibrant square.
Staying here exceeded our expectations.

Room Tip: You may prefer to ask for an upper floor and on the side in the sun. The ground floor rooms have gue...

Had a weeks stay at the hotel. The staff were very helpful, courteous & nothing was too much trouble. The room was spacious with 2 bathrooms & a superb bed. We played golf while staying at the hotel & the hotel used their cars to ferry us to the courses & airport. Food was good in the hotel but it was also perfectedly situated for other eating establishments within walking distance of most tourists sites.

Room Tip: alchol is v expensive

A beautiful hotel, with fantastic spacious rooms although too hot due to a centrally operated heating system. clean and very luxurious. The breakfast was lovely and the stay were extremely friendly and helpful. There are a limited number of sun lounges and yes people do reserve these before going for breakfast which can be quite annoying. However this was addressed whilst we were there. The food was very expensive in the hotel and if you order at around 2pm from the pool area, expect a long delay. We waited over an hour for ice cream and a drink. On average it is £30 each for lunch (orange juice is £6 a glass). We ate out most of the time. The Spa was very good and the staff were lovely. Very expensive though. My partner paid for a facial for me for my birthday which cost £45 for 20 mins and no I don't look any younger lol. All the staff were amazing and nothing was too much trouble. Special thanks go to Maroud who was an amazing butler. For all non smokers, please note that smoking is allowed in the hotel which meant that we couldn't sit in the bar at night. When lying around the pool, the beds are close together and it was horrible being next to someone that smoked. There are a lot of snobby french people that stay in this hotel that smoke a lot. One day a guy smoked a cigar continuously from 9am in the morning on the sun lounger behind us and on another day we had a french chain smoker on the sun lounger next to us. On both occasions we couldn't change beds as they were all occupied. Apart from that it was an amazing place. Make use of the Tourist bus to get around. We didn't use a taxi on during our stay there apart from transfers to and from the airport which was all prepaid.

Room Tip: We were on the 3rd floor overlooking the pool. A deluxe room. It was lovely and perfect location...
