“La Mamounia-indulgent and atmospheric experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

My wife and I initially booked for 3 nights in May but were enjoying our time so much we stayed an extra night and spent most our time actually within the confines of this oasis knowing we had several more days to experience the sights and sounds of Marrakech.Having never been to Marrakech we booked to stay at 3 different places with La Mamounia our first stop. The check in was very civilised and easy(thankfully as we had flown from Melbourne to Paris with a connecting flight thru to Marrakech.I have repressed the memory of how many hours that was) sitting in the majestic lobby on comfortable sofa eating the most luscious dates whilst sipping on cool almond milk and then being shown to our room and given an overview of what La Mamounia had to offer.Most people would find La Mamounia expensive but you are getting a unique and amazing overall experience not just a hotel room. On that basis ,despite the cost it still represents good bang for your buck.
Our room was beautiful,the public spaces as exotic as we had hoped and the gardens stunning and varied to walk around especially in the cool of the morning and at sunset(with a prior stop for an icecream at Bar Menzeh, the little building located midpoint).The vegetable gardens at the very back which supply the hotel restaurants were good to see.
Staff were generally excellent and very attentive but getting a drink from the poolside staff was slower than it should be for a hotel of this standard.
The breakfast buffet was excellent with a great variety of breakfast staples as well as Moroccan favourites.We enjoyed a very leisurely start to each morning and didn't worry too much about lunch.
We had dinner each night at their Moroccan restaurant aptly named Le Marocain, reasoning that we hadn't travelled this far to eat French or Italian despite whatever local twists may have been added to those cuisines.We dined under the stars at Le Marocain each night and tried different dishes.The food was superb and the ambiance enhanced by the live band playing traditional Moroccan tunes.
The gym, which is housed in a large building next to the tennis courts(didn't see anyone actually playing) was well fitted out and the 2 times we went we were the only people there.
My wife and I both tried the Hamaam(a first for both of us) and whilst the treatment rooms were beautifully decorated and clean the actual treatment wasn't as traditional as we had hoped and the massage afterwards was just ok. Nevertheles i would recommend the Hammam as a good introduction (if slightly sanitised) to the experience but wouldn't do the same for the massage.Both were expensive but not more than you would expect them to be in a hotel of this standard.
Bar Churchill is visually stunning but despite the live music on offer, unfortunately wasn't busy on the nights we were there.Bar Italien was always a bit livelier but still fairly quiet and we enjoyed a cocktail or two on the terrace both pre and post dinner.
Would love to return to La Mamounia someday and that is the best recommendation you can give.Don't forget the obligatory photo with the impressively attired doormen.

My wife and I had a 3 night long weekend here to relax in the sunshine. Service was impeccable and the architecture particularly impressive. The hotel is set in 8 acres of immaculate grounds, white flowering shrubs and flowers, cactii and palms close to the hotel leading to fruit then vegetables at the end of the main walk. An army of gardeners and irrigation systems keep this in perfect order for a relaxing stroll. Beautiful mosaics and such detailed plasterwork and wood carving give every part of the hotel a luxurious feel.

The huge pool is perfect, great buffet style breakfast and lunches served around the pool or on the terrace outside the Italian Restarant. We ate Italian on arrival but were tired from travelling, had a great dinner in the French restaurant the next night- 3 types of fois-gras and a huge sole as a special between us and finished in the Moroccan for our last night; a great experience although this was our first Moroccan menu and we could have chosen better with experience. Everywhere there were lovely staff and perfect service. The local Moroccan rose and red wines were surprisingly good.

Our room (311) was a standard one but well equipped.

In short a great hotel for a break, not cheap but this quality is rare. Transfers to and from airport (which is only 10 mins away) were in one of the hotel Jaguars and made that part of the journey simple.

This is one of the best run hotels I have been to. The friendlyness of the staff coupled with an impecable service and an amazing architecture makes this hotel really special. I stayed in suite 444 and I just can say wouw! I had a balcony overlooking the pool and the interior was high standard Maroccon design coupled with high tech features.

Upon our arrival, we were served dates, cookies and tea. The hotel has a fabulous entry. The gardens are spectacular with their beautiful flowers and outdoor lounges. The food is wonderful. the Italian restaurant had excellent pasta dishes. The French restaurant had lovely décor and served great meat and fish dishes.
The Churchill bar became one of out favorite places in the hotel.
We totally loved this place from the lovely rooms to the gorgeous pool to the delicious restaurants, situated in the best location.
I would highly recommend this place to everyone going to Marrakesh.

After all these years, Marrakech's elegant lady of luxury remains a precious gem within the walls of the medina. While this time we only had drinks on its lovely terrace, we thoroughly enjoyed our refreshing walk among the trees and flowers of its never-ending gardens. It is a very special place.

didn´t stay there although I did go there twice for drinks just to enjoy the whole setting. Drinks are quite expensive, had a Mojito (prob the worse ever) on the 1st day and a soft drink the next one. its a beautiful place if one wants to get away from the hustle and bustle and enjoy a quite relaxing time. well worth the visit.
