Es Saadi Marrakech Resort - Hotel
Ranked #107 of 500 Hotels in Marrakech
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 21, 2013

Reasonable rooms, clean and comfortable.
The hotel is very 'French', with some staff not speaking English, and only two of thirty-odd TV channels in English. Some staff pleasant, others a little surly and unhelpful.
Food , and especially drinks, quite expensive.
Pretty dull public areas, and breakfast room quite dark and dingey. Reasonable but basic breakfast buffet.

Room Tip: Ask for pool view and higher floor. Town view gets no sun and can be noisy.

Peaceful location in vast gardens,we stayed on the fifth floor. Room was clean & comfortable with a safe too. If you go out at night following the paths with low lights you can walk for ages & easily forget which way you came. Pool very pleasant, plenty of sun beds & some swinging seating also good snack bar.
Very gloomy room for breakfast. Especially if eating early before full daylight.

Room Tip: Ask for room overlooking the pool & on higher floors.

We chose this hotel after researching as it appeared to be in a good location and value for money. Well it was an OK location but we did not feel it was value for money.
The hotel is approximately 15- 20 minute taxi from the airport so that was convenient. Our room was on the first floor overlooking the pool. I thought this might get noisy but we stayed five days and it was OK. there was free wifi in the hotel and we had no problems accessing the internet even by the side of the pool!
Our room was OK, bathroom OK. We were staying half-board, and we did not like the food, we found it tasteless and without much variation. There was no buffet but a set menu. after two evenings we ate out so that was a total waste of money paying half-board. Breakfast was OK, the only advantage with breakfast was that it was available in our room until noon so did not have to get up too early just for breakfast!
The hotel is in a quiet location in the area of Hivernage, unfortunately only one cafe (5 mins from hotel and a small supermarket about 10 mins walk- handy to buy water snacks).
The hotel staff were OK but only spoke French and Moroccan Arabic so they and we struggled!
a plus was that a tour bus stops outside the hotel...a ticket can be bought for 24 or 48 hours for hop on - hop off tour.
In general, it was OK but compared to other five star hotels we have stayed in it would be definitely a good 3 star or average 4 star.

Room Tip: rooms overlooking the pool are best, for privacy choose a higher floor. The other rooms overlook the...

The complex that this hotel and its sister one sits in both takes the traveller away from the bustle and crowds of the Medina while also giving one the feel of being in Morocco. A perfect place to relax in whether over an outdoor breakfast or by the pool for dinner or just lazying about.

The hotel is abot a mile or so from the Medina, but taxis or horse drawn carriages are available. It is also well placed to escape for a day, or more, into the Atlas Mountains.

The food was a blend of Moroccan and international accompanied by Moroccan wine. Comparing prices with those in a restaurant in the medina the wine was good value.

Hotel is old, it cant be 5 stars, more like old 4.
Palace near Hotel Essaadi is da king, 5 stars.

But lets start from bad things:
* Internet - I have travelled alot but i havent had this bad connection ever. So bad internet everyday.

* Food - uber high prices. Food is like 3,5/5.

* If you want 2x cheaper prices, there is one Cafe near Hotel. I dont remember the name, but its like 200meters. Very good and cheap menu - lots of people there.

* Pool-side is dirty and whats even worse - you cant sunbath, because there are so many flies everywhere.


Good stuff:
* Room service and cleaning was good, very good - one of the best i ever have seen.

* Service near pool was good.

* Room was nice, old Moroccon style.

* Bed, pillows and blanket were awesome good. I had super good sleep. Bed was XXXXL sized :).


and thats pretty much all.


But yeah, avg 100€/night and you cant have Internet...this is joke.

Room Tip: If you wanna use Internet, then beware, Internet is very slow and you cant do your business. You can...

The location is an up-market area of Marrakech and close to the Medina but the area lacks cafes and restaurants other than in other hotels. The gardens are little more than bordered paths between the various buildings. The hotel feels very much like the poor relation to the Palace although the Palace does not live up the hype either.
The food in the restaurant was reasonably good but breakfast left something to be desired and was often served up in chipped china; for example on my last morning there I had to reject five cereal bowls before finding one without a chip. Hardly more than 2 star. Also the bath was horribly stained (see photos).
I had a room overlooking the pool which was supposed to be quiet but even so there was noise most of the night. The casino was close by and there was a poker tournament going on which probably increased the traffic. Vehicle noise came both from there and from the road and there was bass noise until about 5 a.m. every night
The spa was way over-priced. Treatments in the Palace spa were more expensive that at La Mamounia!
This hotel complex may aspire to be like La Mamounia on price but it is a million miles off course.
