“Good for a short break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

Enjoyed our stay two weeks ago and overall the hotel was up to our expectations based on previous reports.i would try to get a pool view room as we had a mountain view and so sitting on the balcony was not an option due to the road noise. The room was fine but not quite five star compared to other hotels we have stayed in.Breakfast selection very good and food in general was very good. Service fine but around the pool area could be slow. Hotel was busy when we went and so getting a sunbed could be hard work at times, as some people put towels on in the morning but then went down town for several hours. I think the price of drinks was over the top and you are a captive audience so be prepared to pay five pounds for a small bottle of beer and ten pounds for a Gin and Tonic. I think the overall impression when you arrive is very good but I think depending which room you get will be the difference in your overall score. We were in a large party of people and saw a few different rooms and some looked a lot better than others so I guess it could be work in progress. Overall worth a visit if you can get a good deal.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. While we loved the madness of the Medina, Souks etc....This was a lovely tranquil place to return to.....We have never stayed in a five star hotel before, so not used to having everything done for us ( Kids grown up and recently flown the nest ) but we really have had a lovely time and already planning to return. From Porter to Concierge to Poolside staff etc.....We have no negative comments about this hotel......Thank you to everyone for a wonderful stay x

Hotel was great overall especially the pool areas. Staff were fantastic and really went out of their way to please. The one note of caution is the rooms facing the road are very noisy and not really suitable for relaxing on the balcony with a book.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the pool not the road.

I am a return customer at the Sofitel due to the exceptional customer service and room quality at the Sofitel Marrakech.

I would like to thank Youness Chafik and Yasin who are the poolside managers for there attention to detail and excellent mannerisms.

Ahmed Defea the head moroccan chef was once again producing delicious cuisine with the restaurant staff delivering excellent customer service(Farah, Hicham, Anaz and Brahim).

I will be returning in June for my next visit to marrakech and recommend this hotel highly.

Antoine Winckler is running the best hotel in marrakech.

Plus side: lounging poolside on an Arablian Nights fairy tale couch/sunbed
Negative side: (a) really, really horrible concierge; (b) housekeeping unable to read labels, resulting in two nights without any shampoo, followed by a smorgasbord on the last day of 4 shampoos, 1 conditioner; 9 bath gels; and 3 lotions; (c) an oppressive floral fragrance piped throughout the hotel (which did nothing to counteract the indoor smoking odors) so if you have asthma or similar condition, be forewarned. Not at all what I expected from Softiel.

Beautiful oasis while visiting Marrakech. Although it is at the pricier end of the scale, the lovely room and great service was well worth the money spent. Highlight is the fresh and delicious breakfast served every morning. Would gladly go back next time I'm in Morocco.

This hotel is excellent and we had a great time. The only downside was we had booked half board with Thomson holidays but the hotel charged us for all of our meals apart from breakfast. Neither Thomson nor the hotel will take responsibility. Therefore we have paid nearly £800.00 pounds for one weeks meals. Apalling!
