The danger with places that score rave reviews is that they sometimes fail to live up to the high expectations you have as a result. Not so with the Sirayane. This really is a little gem. I thought it was the perfect size - large enough to boast good facilities, small enough to feel calm and intimate. The pool is the perfect size for a decent swim. The path around the rooms is about 300m, so you easily use it as a jogging track for a couple of miles in the early morning cool. That's how I justified copious pancakes at breakfast (there are at least 3 different sorts!)
The restaurant caters for vegetarians - they're happy to tweak the menu for you so just ask. There are veggie versions of the tagine and the couscous that aren't listed on the menu, and they will knock you up a decent veggie salad for lunch.
The owner is a lovely guy. The drivers, pool man, porters and restaurant staff are all very helpful. The night receptionist made us orange juice, coffee, yoghurt and cake at 5am for our departure.
After the madness of the medina it's lovely to wake up to the birdsong at the Sirayane. We thought it was the perfect complement to the bustle of the city, and as others have said, the shuttle works well. We got a couple of taxis - once when we came back in the early hours of the morning and once when we missed the shuttle because my husband's watch broke (no we didn't buy it in Marrakech!). We paid 150 MAD each time. I expect you could bargain harder and get it a little cheaper if you were more skilled than us.
All in all I thought it was excellent value for money and I expect we paid at the highest end of its room prices as we were there over the peak Easter week.
