“The only downside is leaving!........”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

My husband and I have just returned from a stay at La Maison Arabe..... a stunning and glorious Riad which has a beautiful Moroccan feel. The staff were attentive, courteous , efficient and respectful and made one feel very special. From the moment we arrived everything was just perfect and the attention to detail wonderful.
The Restaurant excellent with a good menu to cover all taste's.Our room and bathroom great and the bed extremely comfortable..Very restful ambiance. (as long as you know beforehand about the call to Prayer! ) set out beautifully with superb lighting. The Wellbeing Spa....exceptional, of the hightest quality and treatments were first class.
The position of La Maison Arabe is situated well for one to venture into the souk's.
The country club was paradise. Maybe we should keep it as a well kept secret!!! A very short drive and on arrival one enters into a beautiful garden, a path which leads to the pool area and surrounded by sun loungers and large bed's. My husband was in 7th heaven reading his book on the very large bed with a large olive tree overhead. Great for de-stressing! The peace and tranquility splendid, the welcome drink fabulous and the salads that we had by the pool totally delicious.
As I said the only downside was leaving La Maison Arabe and that really illustrates how very special a place it is.

Room Tip: We stayed in a Junior Suite on the second floor overlooking the pool. I would have liked to see the...

...and quite possibly of the decade. Stayed here twice during a trip to Morocco. Firstly in room 216,for 4 nights, a suite in the older part of the hotel. Traditional furniture, lots of little windows (plus big ones) and a large patio overlooking the pool. Then returned for three nights to room 244, which is in the more modern part. Bright, well furnished and the most storage I have experienced in any hotel. Two full runs of wardrobe hanging plus 33 (I counted) drawers and shelves. A big lovely, relaxing room with large double windows looking onto the pool and across to the mosque.

Extraordinary hospitality and service from all the staff. One night there was a slightly intrusive noise of air conditioning. It was late and we wondered whether to mention it. Within two minutes of the call to reception a staff member was on the scene and pronounced "No good -like jet engine!" Ten minutes later there were muffled noises from the roof where the hotel technician was fixing the problem....at 1.30 am!! Amazing!

The pool in the evening is the setting for dinner by soft lights and candles with a very talented group of musicians playing traditional music in the background. Excellent food, a fusion of local and french cuisine.

The location is perfect - ten minutes walk to the main square and less to the souks with the bonus of a country garden and pool just 15 minutes by the hotel's courtesy car. For two blissful afternoons we had it almost to ourselves. Glasses of cool mint cordial and ice cream and water melon given free and a snack bar for a light lunch.

I really cannot rate this hotel too highly and many thanks for an unforgettable stay to all the smiling, helpful and lovely staff.

Room Tip: The older rooms have some steep stairs to climb. The newer rooms are also served by a lift. But all...

Stunning hotel with helpful, friendly staff. The food is wonderful and the location is perfect. Walking distance from many of the major sights. Lovely pool and the added benefit of the country club with its larger pool and bar.

After a year of work in Tanzania under often stressful circumstances we took a time out at Maison Arabe and did not regret a minute. A power outage totally out of the control of the hotel resulted in a beautiful complimentary bottle of champagne and much solicitous attention. The food was unbelievable and the atmosphere breathtaking. The most impressive thing though had to be the staff who were the perfect combination of attentive yet unobtrusive...not always the case in Morocco where the service can sometimes be too much "in your face"

Room Tip: Our room required a descent down a flight of stairs which could have been a problem for some.

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.
