What a fabulous base this is for a holiday in Marrakech. Facing onto a busy street and ideally placed next to the train station, inside the hotel is like a luxurious oasis of calm amid the happy chaos of the city. Staff are very friendly and helpful, everywhere is spotless and service second to none. Before going we'd read a comment that breakfast was poor. All I can say is that the breakfasts we had were superb with loads of choice including the scrumptious Morroccan crepes made to order in the dining room and delivered hot to your table. When the hotel was very busy, overspill dining was in a Berber tent erected by the pool and was a real experience. There is a lovely pool and pool bar for lazy days and the temperature was warm enough for bikinis and sunbathing even in January. I have to mention the staff again because during our trip my husband was unfortunately taken ill. The receptionist called out a doctor on a Sunday, who drove an hour round trip, was absolutely excellent and only charged us £40 though in fact the medication he prescribed was priceless to us because it meant my husband could enjoy the rest of the holiday pain free.
We cannot recommend this hotel highly enough and would certainly return without hesitation.

Room Tip: We actually had a room facing the road and were initially worried about noise. In fact, provided the...

Our recent Holiday in Marrakech was really different and enjoyable.We booked with Thomson and their service was excellent,the Hotel however could have been better!This Hotel is really not 4 star,the accomodation is lovely,spacious,clean and staff very attentive.The Breakfast is really limited ie:boring as if they can't be bothered with the most important meal of the day,even the coffee was either very week or stewed.We,I think,were very unfortunate the time we were there because a number of the staff from this Hotel and the Red Hotel around the corner were on strike over their employment conditions.Hence from 8am to about 11pm they were demonstrating banging drums and chanting,not all day long ,they did stop to eat a few time a day.The prices for snacks and drinks were really expensive considering the overall cost in Marrakech so that was not value for money.So overall we did have a nice Holiday but a Holiday is what you make of it yourself!!!

Room Tip: Not on the roadside definately overlooking the pool

I will apologise for asking questions on here but wasn't sure where else to ask.If anyone could help I would be grateful
1 Are bathing costumes / bikinis ok around the pool
2 What is appropriate clothing for ladies at breakfast - eg are knee length shorts ok
3 Is there a snack bar at lunch time - what kind of things does it sell and is it reasenably priced
4 What is the average price of taxi to the square from the hotel and is it best to flag one down in the street rather than ones that maybe parked outside

We were only 4 nights in this most excellent plays. We couldn`t fault the friendly people, food, accommodation, spotlessly clean, excellent service. I could go on and on and recommend highly. People speak french and english and we would definitely re-visit this Hotel as well as Marrakech, which is a spiritual and fabulous experience.

Room Tip: Higher floors have a wonderful outlook especially the ones overlooking swimming-pool rather than fro...

Just flew in and checked out Marrakech for few days on route to AgadirThis was a good location,right price.By the station so the taxis knew exactly where to go! Only one night but just did us great...£50 for the twin bedded room,no surprises just a good clean room with two good sized beds.the staff were friendly,the guardian on the car park cheap and cheerful.5 dirham .(or MAD..Moroccan dirham). Aprox 50p.we had a late checkout but they wanted to charge extra but managed to get that dropped...smiles all round after bit of a chat about it and charge was dropped all good and would certainly stay there again. Good breakfast too.

Booked with Thomsons for four nights for four of us. Taxi transfer was included in price of holiday and on arrival were taken to hotel (only a 10 min trip). Check in was a bit slow. Two of us had a poolside room and the other two had a room overlooking the (very busy) road. Although interesting to look at manic drivers on the roundabout it was quite noisy with the windows open. Try and get a poolside room if you can. The environment of the hotel is quite quiet and calm and very spacious. The poolside is very pleasant and everything spotlessly clean. Rooms were a good size and bathrooms also modern and good size (although a bit of a step up and over into the bath and shower!). Music round the pool drove us bonkers (heard winds of change about 50 times!). Had some drinks in the hotel but my advice is take some duty free - there is a kiosk outside the hotel selling tonic water, coke etc and bottles of water at reasonable price and a fridge in the room. We had a fantastic trip which we booked with 4x4 Camel with Adil. Cannot recommend this highly enough - see my review. His email is adil.camel@gmail.com and we organised this before coming to Marrakesh. He communicates back very quickly and efficiently and kept to his word to pick us up at hotel as planned. You will not regret booking this - highlight of our trip. All in all a good break. We struggled with the very busy roads and manicness of Marrakesh at times and wish we had done more outside of the city such as the 4x4 trip.

Room Tip: Ask for Poolside

We stayed at the Opera Plaza as part of a 4 days Feb break. We booked through Thomson's.
The hotel was having a trade dispute with some of their maintenance workers. The workers camped out the front chanted, and beat drums for the whole weekend. Despite this we we assigned the room right above the noise. Because we expected the protest to finish after the first day we did not ask to be changed.
The hotel was pleasant enough, but displayed no "what to do brochures so we had to rely on the Thomson rep. The food from the a la carte restaurents was expensive and poor. Mt wife makes better Tagine. All in all it was good to get out of the English Feb weather for the weekend and into the sunshine, but we were generally dissapointed with the service and food.
Marrakech has lots of interesting history.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool and not overlooking the main road.
