For our first visit to Marrakesh my friend and I booked at the Sofitel Hotel. I had heard from many of my customers in England who had visited Marrakesh and stayed at the Sofitel on how wonderful a hotel it is and we too decided to book.
The hotel is nicely situated not too far from the airport and the centre. It has a fantastic presence and an elegant facade. On arrival we were warmly greeted by the receptionist (Loubna) who was very polite and professional. We arrived before check-in time due to a very early flight and were very tired having had no sleep the night before. We explained to the receptionist and she kindly allowed us to check-in so that we could freshen up. We even got a courtesy call to make sure we were happy with the room, a very nice thought. The room was fantastically decorated with a Moroccan theme and lovely views over the pool area.
We were very impressed with the swimming pool area with 2 large pools and fantastically constructed sun loungers. Not the cheap plastic ones you get at some hotels. The pool area was so good it was like being in peaceful oasis of peace and relaxation away from the hustle and bustle of Marrakesh. We found the service around the pool area 1st class whenever we needed anything. There was even a guy giving free foot massages to re-energise those aching feet.
I have stayed in many 5* Hotels having travelled and worked all over the world and Sofitel Hotel in Marrakesh is definitely one of the best. I will be staying there again whenever I am back.
Overall, nothing was too much trouble for the staff who went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay even when my friend had forgot his comb and asked if they had one. One was promptly dispatched by Loubna.
Merci Beaucoup Sofitel Hotel, Marrakesh.
