Writing this review from the taj, room 235. Problems since we arrived :
mini bar not working, called twice for repair but still not working (hot drinks when u wake up at night).
The price of alcool drinks are not in the mini bar menu (is it free ?)
Toilets not working, making noise all night
no Bed in our room terrace (other delux rooms have one)
In room breakfast ordered yesterday night, arrived 30 minutes late, cold harira (moroccan soup), lime juice with no sugar, industrial jam (whereas advertised as home made), missing ordered items (had to call in room dining to get it).
No Jiva spa (signature spa of taj hotels)
I shall complete this review after leaving the hotel with pictures.
We are very disapointed, taj should really take appropriate actions to "save" this hotel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Serenely nestled between the soothing Palmeraie landscape of palm and olive trees and the awe-inspiring Atlas Mountains, Sahara Palace Marrakech has been meticulously crafted with a vivid blend of Moroccan, Indian and Moorish themes that unfold from a magnificent Palace block to the four exclusive and expansive Riads. With its five glorious alabaster-white domes resting atop the luxuriant main building, the Sahara Palace Marrakech is regal and resplendent in this breathtaking Moroccan landscape. The hotel unfolds like a beautiful painting from galleries of hand painted frescoed wood ceilings and ornaments, restaurants of rich colours and texture, to the serenity and calmness of the Marie Iod Spa. The high vaulted lobby, highlighted by a sparkling 22 meter chandelier centerpiece and three kilometers of gold leaf adorning various ceilings, cornices, furniture and ornaments, makes this a truly royal experience. This palatial desert oasis features 161 well-appointed, spacious guest rooms, including 25 luxurious suites, spread between the magnificent main Palace and four exclusive Riads. All rooms and suites enjoy stunning views over the Atlas Mountains, the Palmeraie desert landscape or the calming pool and gardens. Our celebrated chefs have gathered the finest ingredients that span the Moroccan, Mediterranean and Indian in one unique destination. Our guests can wine and dine in some of the most stylish and charismatic restaurants and bars in Marrakech, whilst the warm and welcoming service makes every moment memorable.
