“Visually 'Amazing' , but Perhaps Challenging !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2014

I had read much about La Mamounia and its refurbishment and on this my second visit to Marrakech decided to stay there . The location is of course very good. The interior of the building is opulent , but very dark to the point of being oppressive and the lighting in my room was very poor. Breakfast at the pool was , however , a pleasure with excellent and attentive , service , but no pressure to vacate the table . However on Sundays the poolside becomes the venue for a vast and vastly expensive lunch experience and the other dining option at lunchtime is to be tucked away in the French restaurant which has no view and is very quiet . The Italian restaurant serves perhaps the best food and the bars are buzzy in the evening , but beware the Churchill Bar if you dislike heavy cigarette smoke . The smoke -laden atmosphere was like a 1940s film , but I did not see Humphrey Bogart or any spies ( at least as far as I was aware ! ) Would I stay there again ? Probably . Its a short flight from London and in May the weather is very good, but as a hotel it might usefully review its dining options , particularly on a Sunday . It is not , by the way, a hotel for people who dislike staying at hotels where the public come in to take a look . People treck through the lobbies as sight seers .

Room Tip: Try to find one which can be adequately lit , this applies also to the bathroom . Lack of adequate l...

After drinks in the infamous Churchill Bar we had dinner in a private room and were entertained by musicians and a cake for my
Mother's birthday after a sumptuous dinner. Not cheap but a special experience. The gardens looked so pretty lit up like a fairyland as we left. Magical.

A very opulent hotel, beautifully presented. We only visited for cocktails, hoping for jazz in the Churchill Bar but that was closed as out of season. We sat, instead, on the charming terrace. Delightful service, all very grand but so empty. I have to say I preferred our beautiful charming riad in the medina!

Everything is awesome at Mamounia: Pool, room, service, gardens, service. A must do: walk in the garden and a have an ice cream at the cabana. Amazing.

The best place in Marrakech. The original style... The others are copycats

Dear Rosa,

It is always such a pleasure to read such positive comments regarding our guests’ experience. Thank you for your posting on TripAdvisor following your recent stay with us.

It is such a reward for us to be considered as the best place in Marrakech. We are glad you enjoyed most of the facilities, especially The Menzeh, located at the other end of the gardens beyond the olive trees. This separate building from the main one is very special as is it the oldest building of La Mamounia history. Further, it is a place where one can enjoy drinking a tea and some exclusive delights proposed by our Pastry Chef.

We thank you again for your support and we already look forward to welcoming you again to your favorite place in Marrakech.

Sincerely,

Pierre Jochem
General Manager

A Rolex watch of high economic and emotional value. In the center of the Mamounia. 17 September 2011. Security officials were very kind, but I does not have my Rolex anymore.
Do not leave your belongings unattended. The hotel will not be responsible for thefts in the structure. I did not like to feel insecure in such a beautiful place. My birthday them was not very happy. :(

We stayed here during Easter this year and I just realised I hadn't written a review about it. It's a beautiful hotel with real old fashion glamour from the exotic rooms to the Churchill Bar I only wished I had packed more shoes and dresses as it's one of those places where you wouldn't feel overdressed for supper. It's a perfect place for a long weekend, very romantic but equally good with a family.

I could not fault this place if I tried, from the moment I stepped through the gates of the grand entrance I fell in love, the hotel is immaculately maintained and you are greeted at the door with such a warm and friendly welcome that you instantly feel relaxed and you trust that your stay will be all you imagined. I absolutely love the décor throughout the hotel right down to the smallest of detail. The staff are so helpful and welcoming and I loved spending the sunny evenings in the Italian bar working my way through the extensive cocktail menu, we ate at both the Moroccon restaurant and Italian restaurant and the food was faultless, they even made me a dish specially as they had asked what I like to usually order at home! The gardens and facilities in the hotel are beautiful and so well maintained, they even have their own herb and vegetable garden on the grounds! I would highly recommend a stay here!
