I was taking my elderly mother on a trip to Marrakech and needed somewhere "reliable" to put us up for 4 days. Having read several reviews about the "gestapo" attitude to taking bottled water into the hotel rooms, I can admit that I was a little apprehensive!
However, all went swimmingly! The hotel staff was welcoming and very pleasant. Speaking french was a help, and I imagine communication is more tricky in english.
Breakfast was copious and good, freshly cooked with plenty of choice. The pool area made for a "haven of tranquility" after a hectic morning in the souks! The water was pleasantly cool and most refreshing. Pool staff friendly and efficient. Plenty of comfy loungers.
Fresh flowers, imaginatively displayed every day in the lobbies was enthralling for my mother who is always impressed by such touches.
We took advantage of an offer on the net, a "hot deal" ,and enjoyed rooms overlooking the mountains and pool/garden area at a considerable discount. It was however an expensive 4 days!As for restaurants I would recommend "La Villa", opposite Kenzi Farah, also a good japanese "Tanabaschi" near the Palais Royale and for a real treat, the "Villa des Orangers" is perfection!! All the travel negotiated in the "petits taxis" for a few pence. A perfect trip...
