my girlfriend and i stayed at villa guest from the 31st of may - 9th of june 2014
This is an excellent base for you to explore, highly recommend it for seasoned travellers. If you want a cosemtically decorated and run hotel then this isnt for you. If you want authentic moroccan decor and a homely experience then you cant do much better. if youve not been to Marrakesh before then please take my advice and book accomodation out of the centre. its a dry dusty place and having a peaceful retreat is paramount to a good experience.
the accomodation at villa guest is very simple and understated. the staff are very welcoming and helpful on request but largely enough they leave you to enjoy your holiday. The pool is very clean and plenty large enough even if the villa was full.
there is a supermarket right next to the accomodation which means food for snacks and bottled water is easily accesible.
getting into the centre of marrakesh is simple enough, there is a bust stop right outside the hotel that is served every 15 minutes. it takes anything from 15 minutes to 45 minutes to get into the city centre depending on the time of day but it only costs 4 MAD which is about 30p (may 2014)
the other option is to take the minivan provided by the villa, the driver is readily available with 5 minutes notice and it only costs 50 MAD which is rougly £5
as for marrakesh itself, our best experience was watching the city come to life at night, head down about 7pm and find a rooftop cafe, enjoy a lovely mint tea and watch as the sun sets and the streets buzz with a food market and performers, story tellers and snake charmers. once its dark head down and sample the wonderful street food, use your fingers to eat and be amazed at whatt you can get for as little as £2 per meal.
