“Perfection!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

Thank u to the Sofitel, we have had an amazing time. Because it was our honeymoon, the hotel even upgraded us to a beautiful suite and let us have late check out. The hotel staff are wonderful, particularly amina on reception, she has been a delight, if you come here use the spa, the staff and the facilities are wonderful. Thanking all the staff for making our honeymoon perfect. We shall return!

we enjoyed this hotel it is in a lovely part of the newer part of marrakech.
the pool area is great, and the service around the pool is also good.
we eat at the pool restaurant this was also good.
the staff are very good, and it is so easy to get around marrakech from this hotel.

Overall a good five star hotel but the service is incredibly slow with sometimes up to an hour before your drink was served, mind you at the price they charge that could be a good thing, seemed to be a little quicker if you were French.

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the pool and away from the nightclub. Can be a long walk inside the hotel bu...

this hotel is absolutely fabulous in terms of location, food ( breakfast, pool lunch, etc). Our suite was amazing, just next to the pool. The staff was very friendly until the last day. After being promised to get the room at least until 3pm ( we are also ACCOR member), they finally told us that we had to check out at 1pm max, and that we would be given a courtoisie room. Eventually, we had no rooms, nor any shower in the spa available, without any excuse or whatever; and we had to was ourselves in the toilets! that's not acceptable at all!

This is a beautifully appointed hotel in a well situated part of Marrakesh. The pool area is stunning. However, the service is variable, some of the staff were helpful and friendly, others were very off-hand. We booked on the basis of breakfast and evening meal but on check-out we were presented with a bill that included our dinners. We pointed out this was incorrect but the clerk was reluctant to believe us. Fortunately, we had our booking confirmation and showed this. A correct revised bill was produced which we paid with a credit card.
Some weeks later when our credit card statement arrived, both the correct and the disputed bill had been charged. I took this up with our operator Kuoni who implied this practice was not unknown! Kuoni said they would resolve the problem and asked for some time because often hotels don't respond quickly. To cut a long story short, Kuoni reimbursed us and behaved well. I can't say the same of Sofitel.

We stayed in this hotel between 30th May- 7th June. I have to say that we enjoyed every single moment of our stay. The hotel had a wonderful ambience that was relaxing and chilled out. Every part of the hotel had been designed with a lot of thought and effort, there were so many different places around the hotel where you could relax and just enjoy the peace. The pools were amazing as were the settees, beds and hammocks around the pool area to relax on. For me, the best part of the hotel had to be the staff. Everyone seemed to take pride in their job and genuinely went out of their way to make you comfortable and ask you how you were. A special mention to Fatima in the kitchen making pancakes at breakfast time, she really went out of her way to make conversation and ask u how you were, Abdurrazzek who made the bread and toast, he would have a smile and a hello ready everyday. Fatima Zahra who was our waitress was also very friendly, as was Zakkariyah, one of the managers, who was always smart and suited and booted for breakfast and was amazingly polite and courteous. The manager in the L'Orangerie restaurant, Abdul Karim was an outstanding professional and definetely went out of his way too. All in all, I would definetely recommend this hotel, as it's somewhere where you will be well looked after.
