I have just returned from 1 weeks stay in Diwane Hotel. It is in a good location to explore the city. The Medina/Square/Souks are less than 10 minutes by taxi, which costs £2. It is also nearby to the Hivernage, where you find all the clubs, bars, casinos and more upmarket restaurants. There are a few nice restaurants and bars within walking distance, we especially liked the Sky Bar and the roof of Hotel Renaissance opposite. Drinks were a bit pricey but the view was excellent. Nearby is the Carre Eden mall which has a h&m, Mango, Zara, Carrefour and a nice ice cream parlour!
On arrival we were shown to our room which we weren't overly happy with. It didn't have a balcony and was above the noisy main road. However we asked for a room with a balcony and were moved the next day, the staff were very helpful and we were much happier with the second room. Which was clean and spacious and the maid came in every day. Air con is included and worked well which you needed in the heat!
The pool area is nice, and big considering a lot of hotels don't have a pool, sometimes it was a struggle to get a sunbed if you got there later than 10 but the pool man would always help you to find one and you were provided with towels.
We were Bed and Breakfast but only went to Breakfast once- choosing to have a lie in! The Breakfast was ok, eggs, bread, crepes, fruit and pastries but nothing special. However we ate in the restaurant for lunch every day and the food was really nice and reasonably priced. Sandwiches, pizzas, salads, pasta, omelette, all really tasty. The service is slightly slow but we came to learn that this is the same throughout the whole of Marrakesh! So we got used to it.
The spa is an added bonus and they also have a gym.
All in all I would say this hotel is great value for money and a good base. The staff were very helpful and went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed the holiday. I would recommend it!
