Me and my family spent a 5 day weekend on August 2011. Overall satisfaction was very high, to the point that it was my family's first time at a Four Seasons Hotel, and they have declared themselves Four Seasons fans.
The Four Seasons Marrakech is a brand new hotel, which is overall great, but can still bring around one or two very minor drawbacks (i.e. the free dvds at the Young Adult Clud did not work in my rooms DVD player because they were purchased at different regions). The special room @ around 600 EUR is large enough, has a patio and the best bed I have experienced so far (much better than Westin's heavenly bed). The place is quiet, the service is young, extremely friendly and detail oriented. They speak Moroccan Arabic, English and French. However, as soon as they knew we were Spanish, there was a Spanish speaking person waiting to receive us at the door and show us the hotel as the staff helped us unload our baggage and provided cool towels to alleviate the heat. The hotel's decoration is elegant, with touches of moroccan decor and a nice use of fountains to improve looks and temperature. The swimming pools are elegant, nice and large, as are the hot tubs. Temperature of the water was around 28 degrees centigrade, which was perfect on a typical hot day as those in Marrakesh. The hotel also has a decent gym (brand new) and clay tennis courts. The breakfast was included and the quality and variety were excellent (to begin with, ingredients in Morocco are better than ingredients in the US). The food was good, suitable for foodies (and I am extremely exigent for this) but probably there is still a bit of room for perfection in the Four Season's Kitchen. In addition, you may not want to order hamburguers (halal meat tastes different and they may not be ready on time because they are not precisely a staple food in Morocco) and focus more on local dishes. Local wine selection was definitely good (and cheap) but the international wine menu was still limited (from a wine lover standard). Overall, the food quality is high and the eating experience pleasant.
They had three out of four restaurants open and we only experienced two of them, so my review may not be truly comprehensive here. I also would like to point out that during our stay, the hotel was not fully operational (only forty rooms were available of a total a hundred and fourty more or less) and therefore in a process of fine tuning. Despite all, the experience was flawless, the service amazing (I recommend the VIP transfer service from the airport), the facilities top notch and the food great. Highly recommended.
