My wife and I have just returned from a 5 night stay here. The hotel itself was very nice. Rooms spacious, very comfortable (air conditioned, nice solid beds) and well equipped (safe, free wifi, good sized kettle, etc). The pool, sunbeds and poolside area in general were idyllic.
As others have commented, though perfectly acceptable the many times we ate there, there's better food to be found around Marrakech for the more explorative - but that's pretty much our only "complaint".
The drinks menu seemed a little pricey - around £8 for a spirit plus mixer, though once I tried and realised it was more like a triple or quadruple measure, that made it a lot more reasonable. The only place in town we went that also served spirits was a similar price, if not slightly more expensive.
The most note-worthy aspect in my opinion, were the staff. Always friendly, smiling and more than happy to help. Nothing was too much trouble. They were rarely out of sight, but never in the way. The balance was perfect for a relaxing getaway. Almost all of the staff spoke near-perfect English, though I did have to think back to GCSE French on a few occasions. Overall, language barrier wasn't a problem.
I haven't confirmed the figures, but I heard that the hotel sleeps 56 and that there are around 50 staff members, which seems about right to me. The manager was also always around and happy to chat - we spoke to him at least once a day, and each time he recognised us and knew about any issues that had cropped up (a failed wireless router required replacing in our room), and he made sure that we were being well looked after.
The hotel has a large number of birds residing in "eaves". They could get a little vocal early in the mornings, but once you get used to that, they're really quite interesting to watch when you're sat outside taking in the glorious weather. We suspect that they contributed to the total lack of bugs, though were also informed by the manager, when we questioned this, that the hotel is thoroughly "treated" every 3 weeks to ensure no bugs.
Regular free minibuses into central Marrakech were great, the trip to the Atlas mountains/waterfalls (run by the hotel) was also very interesting - probably the most interesting day of our holiday - we came back with a few souvenirs, and some great photos and memories. Omar, our driver for the day, was very accommodating. Said, another of the drivers, also recommended a lovely restaurant to us (Dar Zellige), and even dropped us close to it so that we didn't struggle to find it.
Hopefully we can return again one day. In the meantime, thanks to Le Sirayane for a lovely break and the wonderful service we received.
