“Excellent all around everything”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

Having been in Marrakesh several times, staying here has been one of the two best experiences. La Villa was superior in every way. The management and staff are fabulous and make sure that everything is to ones satisfaction. The chef does a delightful job as well. As a year round leisure traveler for 40 plus years, I highly recommend la Villa to those desirous of a lovely stay.

Room Tip: Cretainly do a room with a veranda

We stayed one night here on our way to Oualidia. The hotel is a lovely building with some attractive peaceful courtyards and a smashing pool. We received a free upgrade from the really helpful and efficient management, but with limited time there probably didn't take full advantage of all the hotel has to offer.
The spa was very good (and good value too), and the food, both lunch and dinner, excellent. There's a strong French element as you would expect, but the fish tagine was brilliant.
It would be five stars but for the fact that the roof terrace falls short of the best in Marrakech, being not wholly private.
But a great hotel.

The entrance to this Riad is nothing special but be prepared for a very pleasant surprise once inside. We stayed here for three nights and had a truly memorable experience. We received a very warm welcome upon arrival and this set the tone for the very personalised and attentive service you can expect throughout your stay. The staff are all friendly and you feel like you are a guest in their home and are never asked to give your name or sign for anything. The Riad itself exudes character and reflects the culture of the city. Waking up in the morning to the sound of the birds singing and the call to prayers was truly blissful. The hotel is ideally located to be able to explore the old city, being only 10 minutes all from the colour of the central square. This also means that it is easy to return back when you need to recharge your batteries with a cup of mint tea sat in one of the delightful, quiet seating areas in this beautiful hotel. This really is a great place to stay, especially for couples wanting a few lazy days away together.

This hotel is absolutely exceptional. It is peaceful, immaculate and a blissful escape from the chaos and traffic of the road outside.
Staff doing everything and anything they can to help you. They were willing to book us a restaurant and arranged a hamman appointment for us in the hotel as a couple.
There are a few central courtyards in the hotel with lovely little secluded sitting rooms around them. We had wonderful and peaceful evenings sitting here. There is relaxing live music on some nights.
The pool is stunning and well designed with a few steps leading down into it. Since it is a small hotel we had it to ourselves at some points, which was fantastic for two swimming addicts!
This hotel was most certainly the best thing about our trip to Marrakesh, truly memorable.
The only small complaint I can think of is that the restaurant is extremely overpriced when you compare the quality of the food there with what you can get in restaurants/cafes in the U.K for a quarter of the price or less.
However, we will never forget our exceptional stay at this beautiful and utterly relaxing riad style hotel. Wonderful.

I reviewed this hotel in March 2012, we visited again recently. Just to say that this is a truly wonderful hotel, a haven of peace and solitude in a busy city. Just a word this time about the restaurant, the food is truly superb, even if you don't stay here try and eat here at least once. Expensive but well worth it.

A short 15minute,hotel provided car journey from the airport,this delightful riad is located on the edge of the medina in a road that belies the quality you will find within the large external doors.The noise and bustle of manic Marrakech fades into the background as soon as you enter and walk along a corridor to the reception, adjacent to a courtyard filled with orange trees exuding the aromas of its blossom and the gentle sounds of trickling water.
Through the courtesy of Azure Collection of Chester, we were upgraded to a junior suite with terrace located on the first floor. Check in was efficient , professional and with a warm welcome.
The suite was of a very good size with plenty of seating and storage. The comfort of the king size bed was exceptional with quality linen. The bathroom was very large with twin sinks, a large deep roll top bath and separate walk in wet shower. The terrace afforded us complete privacy and had sun cover from morning to night. A Bose I dock was provided , along with satellite TV but other than France24 in English, all other channels were Arabic or French. WiFi is provided free but is not available in all parts of the property, a minor issue. A mini bar is provided with complimentary mineral water.
Although tea/coffee making facilities are not provided ,worry not, as room service was consistently of a high standard with complimentary tea/coffee service being brought to our suite in a few minutes,irrespective of when requested,as was the breakfast service to the terrace.
The courtyards and pool areas (2) are very well maintained with service unobtrusive yet attentive, with staff anticipating guests every need where possible.
Seating areas are plentiful within all the enclosed courtyards and around the two pools which are excellently maintained with numerous sunbeds and towels .
There are two main restaurants, each with a stunning log fire, with tables well spaced apart for those seeking quiet conversation and privacy......those seeking an intimate meal can dine in a number of quiet rooms and alcoves . The food is of the highest quality with a good choice of menu to please the international or a more Moroccan palate. The wine list is select but will cater for all tastes.Special mention must be made of the Maitre 'd who provided the highest level of service and care to all residents and dinner guests throughout our stay.
Those staying on B&B have lunch and laundry included, a very attractive option.
The hamman and spa is excellent with well trained,attentive and considerate staff offering a wide choice of treatments .....we particularly enjoyed the Duet massage.
Such is the quality of this venue a very famous film star booked in (no names to respect their privacy!) and mixed with other guests with not an iota of change in atmosphere or service levels with every resident treated as a valued guest.
Would we stay again?...in an instant!....this is an excellent venue to relax and de-stress and you will begin to do just that within a very short time of your arrival.
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: All rooms are a delight but a private terrace is a real treat!

We had three nights at La Villa des Orangers and had an amazing experience. The hotel is stunning. We had a fantastic room, very large and luxuriant. The hotel salons are beautiful furnished. It is really an oasis. The service is impeccable, nothing is too much trouble and suggestions are all good and factual. We have stayed in some of the best hotels in the world and this is added as one of the best we have stayed in. It not cheap but you get what you pay for in life. It is defiantly worth paying for. The G M really knows how to put a team together and run a good hotel.
