“the perfect oasi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

La mamounia is a fantastic hotel in the middle of Marrakech.

its like a luxurious oasi in the MEDINA.

the gardens are heaven and the location is the best.

Room Tip: higher floors on the garden side.

La Mamounia is Amazing. The service, impecable, the Food at each of the restaurants is excellent. If Alhambra means red clay then Mamounia means the the green heart where one finds respite.

This hotel, frequented by Churchill and Roosevelt, and so many others, is one of the special hotels in the world. We were greeted by a personal assistant to help us check in while we sat in a hidden alcove eating dates. Really? So this place is not for everyone, but make no mistake, if you can afford it, it will be one of the best stays you could ever have, in my opinion. The pool is like swimming in the caribbean, the grounds will make you feel like royalty, and the service is impeccable, literally. So do not think of this as hotel number 156 in Marrakesh...that's a strange place for one of the 100 best hotels in the world. In other words, it's a nice place.

Room Tip: no bad rooms. try picking one over the grounds.

We spent a lovely few hours having a long and lazy lunch hiding from the blazing hot sun on the terrace at he back of the hotel. The food is great as is the champagne and the hotel is a genuine oasis and haven from the winding alleys of Marrakech. The hotel is well worth a visit even just to look but be warned you will need to be wearing shoes and trousers as shorts and flip flops are not allowed as we discovered when we were turned away the first time. The inside of the hotel is as exceptionally beautiful as its gardens behind, it will make you want to stay forever. Not to be missed!

Just spent 2 days at La Mamounia in Marrakech. Far and away the best property in town. Impeccable setting, service, location.

We stayed for four nights and were truly impressed by this property. The craftsmanship and design of the hotel are stunning - amazing detail every where - inside and out. We wanted to touch everything - and the scents of dates and the candles wafting throughout the hotel were very nice. Make sure and take time to walk the grounds and enjoy the gardens in the front and rear of the property - especially the veg garden at the rear. The service was excellent and responsive and food was very good - although not excellent. The afternoon brunch/lunch by the pool is a great scene and very magnificent, but not a good value for the $100 US price - per person. Try the cafe at the italian bar instead...The room service menu for intimate dining on your balcony overlooking the gardens is a great option too. Highly recommend and would definitely return. This is a very different La Mamounia after the 2009 reno - and all for the best!

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors overlooking the rear gardens are the best.

It's very difficult to write about La Mamounia because it's the best hotel I've ever been. From the moment we walked inside they start to spoil us. The room are wonderful!!! Very well decorated, comfortable and romantic. Well, it's a real palace!!! Every day they put something special in our room, like cherries, apples, peaches, maccarons, cupcakes, etc. The gardens and the pool are really very beautiful and special. The breakfast was so delicious an there's everything you could imagine. The service is perfect. I had a Royal Hamman in the spa. Latifa made the hammam on me and I liked very much. At first I was a little bit scared by the moroccan ritual, but at the end I loved and my skin was very soft and hydrated. Leila made my massage and was fantastic. My husband had the massage by Asma and liked very much too. We had dinner in the room, in the french and in the italian restaurant. The room's dinner was fantastic, with the view of the Minarete. The french an the italian restaurant's experiences were excellent too. We really loved La Mamounia!
