This hotel was absolutely stunning. It lived up to our high expectations in terms of decor ; the room was beautiful, the pool was amazing and the spa was wonderful as well. Although it was initially hard to find the hotel (no sign??) it really was a sanctuary one we had checked in.

We were offered mint tea upon check in and late check out free of charge, which was very much appreciated.

Whilst we loved our stay, there were a few things we missed. There was no snacks available at all, we wished we'd brought some with us had we known this. Service was slow at times, and we were also surprised to pay a premium for water. Wifi only really worked when standing close to the reception area. Despite this we would recommend it for anyone looking for a quiet and beautiful getaway.

This hotel is 6*
The staff are so pleasant
The rooms are amazing
The service was like I was a king!
Pool is spotless
(Please ignore any negative comments)

We were there for a 3 night break, on arrival had some tea and spot of dinner , the food was great, service lovely, wine great all overlooking the pool area which has been kitted out just perfect . Tbe rooms are decorated in a very sleek stylish way, the maids had done an amazing job every day.
The hotel is located 15 min from the town center but a cab will cost 200d each way but not a bother!!
This hotel is so much better than I expected. All the hotel staff are so welcoming. I would recommend this hotel for couples or a girls weekend, very relaxing place

Thank you to everyone at palais de l o

This hotel is amazing. I took hours and hours searching for one to stay in for our 3 night break to Marrakech. I am very picky about where I stay and this isn't always good!

This hotel went above and beyond my expectations. The hotel is very clean, the decor is lovely something that is quite important to me, rooms are decorated lovely with traditional elements mixed in. Each room has a balcony/area which has a seated area etc. and if cushions that have seen better days i.e the sun has bleached them is all there is to worry about then so be it!

The staff are so friendly and really put themselves out and the food is also good with a breakfast including fresh orange juice, fruit, pastries, omelette and pancakes (the mint tea is also amazing!).

The pool area is beautiful with double sun lounger beds and towards the back of the hotel is the spa which is also another lovely area.

For those who are wondering how far it is from the city centre it is about a 15/20 minute drive and you can easily get in and out of the town from this hotel. This hotel is perfect if you want to mix visiting the busy medina with lazing by the pool. Although there were two children at the hotel whilst we stayed, I would say that this is mainly a hotel for adults or children of the age of 14+ as it really is for relaxing and therefore they may get bored! Despite this the staff were happily playing board games with the children which was nice!

We stayed here for 3 nights in May.
Good hotel, fab pool area. Very clean and comfortable. Staff were very helpful and kind.
It was my boyfriends birthday while we were there. We came home from dinner the evening of his birthday and a lovely surprise…the bedroom was all done up… lit candles everywhere, decorated with petals, flowers and complementary bottle of wine.

Thank you Palais de l'O :)

Palais de L'O not quite a dissapointment , but I can see where ashes7 is coming from. Our room did not lock and the cushions on the terrace area had seen much better days !

However from the accomodation outside we were moved inside the hotel itself which was far better in every respect. We found the staff very accomodating to our many requests and the pool area is fabulous

This was a quick break for some winter sun , should this have been our main holiday then we would have felt let down!

It is a shame as this hotel could be fabulous , rooms not locking ( that are outside the hotel and very shabby terrace areas let it down

Food it has to be said is average , and take your French phrase book very little English spoken especially at dinner.

Breakfast and lunch been the best meals ( better to dine out for dinner)

Room Tip: stay in the hotel building itself far nicer rooms

There is only one word: Exellent!

I stayed there for one week for a golf vacation. The hotel is a little oasis! Beautiful house, rooms and garden including a very nice pool. The service is friendly. A special expirience is the local food at the restaurant. I will for sure come back!

My wife and I stayed in this hotel for one week early November 2013 in the course of a golf vacation around Marrakech. We enjoyed it very much. The house, the rooms and the gardens are fantastic and well maintained. The food was very good and we appreciated great service from a very friendly staff. Enjoyed their personal touch: they took the time to answer our questions regarding meals, tee, herbs, etc. We hope to get a chance to visit this lovely place again.
