We went during the hottest part of the year, and in Ramadan. The beautifully landscaped and manicured grounds provide ample shade by the pool to while away the hours when it is just too hot to do anything else. Air-conditioned rooms (the Colonnade suite) were also very welcome when needing to cool down more quickly. The suite was nicely furnished with a mixture of traditional and more eclectic pieces.
Fortunately it was only too hot for 2 days, so we were able to go into Marrakesh on the other days. It was great to be able to go to town for a couple of hours, come back and rest up a while, go back in, come back, and then go in for an evening meal, all free of charge.
Food was always of a high quality, but expensive in comparison to good-quality restaurants in town.
Being there in Ramadan was not an issue: a little consideration on our part as to going into town 15 minutes earlier or later so the staff could break fast was something anyone can easily accommodate.
On-site steam room and masseuse provided some personal pampering - only used the one at the hotel so not sure how this compares to the many other places offering these services.
We highly recommend this hotel for couples, for its location and surroundings, highly-attentive staff, degree of luxury, and its calm and relaxing atmosphere.
