Although a very beautiful hotel with well-maintained grounds and high security- that's about it. I found the rooms to be well decorated, but surprisingly small. The slow wifi internet stopped working at night and I'm quite certain the heat did too.
While on site for 3 days, my friends and I had gotten massages (although I can only describe it as an annoying rub down) by a "masseuse" that SAT DOWN during 1/2 of the "massage"!! That's right! He was in a roller chair (like you see at a doctor's office) and would roll around me to rub oil in circular motions on my body. The best way to describe the experience was extremely annoying. I couldn't wait to get out of there! Its quite possibly the WORST massage I have ever received. Did I mention he was sick and kept snorting up his snot during my "massage"? What was more disheartening is that once I brought this poor experience to management's attention- they didn't even as much as follow up. Not quite sure how they have received the high accolades they were awarded.
My friends and I spent most of our time at a near by hotel within the medina called hotel Maison de Arabe. Beautiful boutique hotel with a lovely spa and helpful staff- and less than 1/2 the price!! I plan on returning to Marrakech and booking here- you may want to consider doing the same. Good luck and safe travels.
