We stayed 5 nights - went there for my 60th and it was fantastic. Amina at reception was excellent - she dealt with a mistake made by BA who I booked with. She upgraded us to the Executive Suite x 1 with two big bedrooms and a lovely sitting room and then we changed to Junior Suite x 2 - one for my daughter and one for my hubby and I on the same floor.. They cleaned our rooms twice a day and changed our towels, etc., twice a day and made our beds ready for sleeping by removing the cushions, etc., from the beds. We had nice balconies with pool view and across the open land are olive tree plantations view. A small bottle of still water and a small bottle of fizzy water are placed in your room everyday for free and free coffee machine in room but they allow you six free coffee capsules and after six they will charge you. My daughter and I felt as we were in Cleopatra's palace. The Spa section is amazing, treatments are expensive, but worth it when one is celebrating her 60th - the Spa indoor pool and relaxing area soooo lovely. The breakfast at Le Jardin was amazing and you do not need lunch after eating all the delicious food in the morning - two to three waiters attended to our table each morning with coffee, tea, juices, etc.,.....Hicham, Roch, Rabie, Abdelilah and Ibrahim were excellent waiters - the boys came to my table with the head waiter on the morning of my birthday to sing 'Happy Birthday' to me in english and french and they presented me with a delicious french patisserie cake including ONE candle with a bouquet of fresh flowers. The Sofitel has two swimming pools and a Jacuzzi and plenty of different type of sun lounges with umbrellas - the staff are always attending to your need by the pools. Don't feel like you are in the main city of Marrakech - felt like in a garden surrounded by beautiful plants - oranges, palm trees, pomegranate, etc.,. The Hivernage area is very nice and clean, but not far from the Medina Square - about 15 mins walked. We could have stayed longer!!! When leaving Sofitel, Amina came over to the front door to say goodbye to me and she gave me a kiss! The Morrocan tea boy is always in the lobby making mint tea for everyone - again free of charge. The only complain I have is the cost of drinks by the pool - juices are very very expensive and eating in the hotel restaurant is also costly, In fact eating in the area of Hivernage is expensive - so go to the Medina Square and they have many good restaurants. We looked at the review on tripadvisor before booking this trip - and my daughter wanted to stay at Sofitel and I wanted to stay at the Hivernage across the road. Though it was my birthday, I allowed her to decide between the two hotels and I must say she made the right choice for all of us. The people are soooo nice and always openning doors for you at the lobby. The decor inside and outside this Hotel are just incredible - Ancient Egyptian, Moorish and Islamic!!! I will go back to stay at the Sofitel Hotel again when visiting Marrakech - hopefully soon!! C Jaulim (HH)
