We’ve stayed at this wonderful small hotel for 3 nights in a junior suite with a private pool. The hotel is brand new and opened its doors on the 1st of September 2010. It is always a bit tricky to book for a start-up hotel, but the very reasonable introduction price and the good reviews convinced us. Although we experienced some little start-up problems (introduction prices leave some room for little error, but you still have to convince the customer), our stay at the Sirayane hotel was very pleasant.
When driving towards the resort from the airport or the Medina (Marrakech’s old city – 10 min) you pass by a lot of (unexplored) construction sites, which unfortunately look a bit uninviting. However, from the moment you will drive through the large gate of the hotel, you will step into a complete other world of luxury, design and quietness. The hotel is from a very nice trendy modern design (the pictures on www.sirayane.com speak for themselves) and the interior fits superb in the overall environment. The pool is centred in the complex and offers very nice cabana-style beds for two. Even though the main- and our private pool where a bit chilly, the relaxing music and amazing view on the Atlas mountains (on a clear day) make the hotel a perfect place to escape from the somewhat hectic environment of Marrakech and the rush of daily life.
Our room was very specious and modern furnished. The finishing of the construction and materials used in the room are not always from a very high standard, but this is more of a minor issue. The bed is very nice, well working LCD-TV and DVD-player (the reception offers a large selection of movies) and a nice bathroom with whirlpool. The only lack of the bathroom is that there is no separate shower. The separated toilet is a big plus. Housekeeping was very well done and they have a nightly turn-down service (opening the bed, clean up bathroom, etc.).
Breakfast and lunch are fine and the diner we had once was also very tasteful. The hotel is perfect for relaxing at the pool (leave your kids at home) or in the spa (we did not try, but it looks nice). When you would like to go into Marrakesh you can reserve the free shuttle (10 min drive). The last shuttle to the hotel leaves a bit early (21:00u), so I’ve you would like to go into city for diner or drinks you have to get back by private transfer. You can take a taxi, but they are often very crappy and do not know were the hotel is because it is new. It is better to let the hotel arrange your pick-up (€ 20,-).
Overall, the hotel is a very nice place to stay. Of course they have to work on some details - the concierge service (arranging trips, restaurant reservations, general information) for example - but I am sure they will. The general manager/owner is often on site and it is an incredible nice guy, which will do all he can to give you a pleasant stay and to make the Sirayane hotel one of the top resorts of Marrakech. The resort has the potential for sure.
