“The place to be”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This is one of the best places to stay in Marrakech. The staff are friendly and hospitable and they become like family. The decor of the hotel is totally Moroccan and the food is great. Cooking lessons and the spa (hammam) are not to be missed. The location is within walking distance of everything you need to see, including the Jemaa el Fna and the Medina. An added bonus is the Country Club which the hotel provides a free shuttle bus to where you can relax by the pool in the afternoon after a morning of exploring.

Room Tip: All rooms are great but ask for a room with an external patio for added relaxation.

We spent three days at the hotel and loved it. My son was sick (traveler's tummy problems) during one of the days and the staff could not have been more caring and helpful: sending special food and drink, checking in, helping clean up, etc. We also took advantage of the beautiful spa (hammam and massage) and cooking class while we were there (so much fun for the entire family). The restaurant was quite good and the breakfast crepes were great. It was a highlight of our trip to Morocco.

Kind and helpful staff greet you with a welcome drink the moment you arrive. The beautiful property in reminiscent of a time when travel was elegant. La maison offers such a wide variety of ways to pamper yourself, from the spa to daily tewa service. The second pool is worth the shuttle ride, an amazing oasis from the city. Great food, hardworking staff and attention to guest set this gem above the rest. Thanks for a relaxing retreat.

We actually came from Taj Palace to eat here as we wanted some life with good food.

Beautiful location with great atmosphere, the place was packed. I had the steak which was great, my wife had the lamb which was equally as good. Live music was authentic but not obtrusive ,

The hotel itself looke every nice and the staff were great, walking us to our taxi and booking it and agreeing price.

I recommend that you take the time to visit, I think you may have to book as it is recommended by all of the hotels.

I just spent a few days at La Maison Arabe and I really loved it. I was on business in Casablanca and a friend recommended that I visit La Maison Arabe and I am so glad that I did.

The staff are very kind and accommodating. The hotel is so interesting and beautiful - there were many different places to explore within the hotel and you never felt like there were many other people around. I have stayed in other hotels in Morocco and none of them hold up to the standards of this place.

My bed was really comfortable and loved my room. I had a terrace and had breakfast on the terrace a couple of the mornings of my stay, which was really great.

I also had a couple of treatments at the spa - which were excellent. Having a private steam room was lovely and then a relaxing massage at the end was very good. The price for this treatment was very reasonable.

Overall, I am very impressed with this hotel. As a business traveller - looking for a few days to relax, this was the perfect place.

We just spent a wonderful week at La Maison Arabe! What an enchanting place. The staff were fantastic and very helpful. We loved our room – we had one overlooking the pool. The food was incredible and the breakfast was out of this world.

We really enjoyed the Moroccan restaurant – what an experience. We had a beef and lamb tagines – they were both really delicious. We loved the music as well. The restaurant is beautifully decorated in traditional moroccan style.

The spa treatments were amazing – best massage we have ever had and the spa staff are outstanding.

The best kept secret is the country club location – which is a another location about 15 mins from the hotel via a shuttle – with beautiful gardens and a huge pool. It was such a tranquil place.

We chose this hotel because of the great reviews on trip advisor and we were not let down. We whole heartedly recommend this hotel. It is one of the best we have ever stayed at.

Thank you to all the staff at La Maison Arabe for the most fantastic week.

Room Tip: Overlooking the pool - very nice - but we saw another room which was not overlooking the pool and it...

I am so very happy that we found La Maison Arabe. I cannot recommend it highly enough. The Riad itself is well situated, extremely clean, and well cared for. What set this place apart however was the incredibly supportive staff. They responded to each and every request we had and always with a smile. When we were ripped off a little while shopping they even interceded with the shop keeper to get our money back!

The food in the restaurants and bar was terrific and of course the service was great as well.

When you go there be sure to go to the Moroccan cooking class - it's truly world class as well.
