I stayed at Es Saadi Gardens 1st February to 6th February 2013 as part of a business conference. The hotel provides a fairly elegant impression on arrival but it soon becomes apparent that the Es Saadi Gardens Hotel is in a little need of TLC/refurb. The room was spacious and comfortable although I would recommend you request a pool view room as the alternative is less than inspiring. The decor of the rooms was looking a little tired, but on the whole the room was clean and comfortable, including table, chairs and balcony. The breakfast for our group was provided in the nearby Es Saadi Palace Hotel which is a far grander prospect. The buliding is a lot more elegant and the quality of breakfast was very good (especially anything from the pastry chef, outstanding); however this was let down by the ability to be fully open at 7am as advertised. For those breakfasting at this time there was the need to contend with the room still being set up. Service in the hotel was generally very slow compred to a standard I am used to internationally, so a little patience is required when trying to catch the attention of a member of staff to order a drink or get a coffee at breakfast. My only real annoyance came on my final evening when I attempted to order room service. The room service menu stipulates that the full room service menu applies until 11pm; I was then a little surprised to be told at 6.30pm that the kitchen was closed and that I could only order a sandwich or cheese. I did then enquire as to why the information in the room was incorrect to which I never really received a credible answer. The saving grace for me was the hour or so I spent talking with Salima in the gift shop attached to the hotel. This is a little hidden, around the corner from the hotel's pool but Salima's shop is full of all the gifts and nic nacs you would expect too find elsewhere in Morrocco but without the hassle of having to be dragged kicking and screaming into the shop. Please pay her a visit if you are staying in the hotel and help support her families long running business. On the whole the hotel was fine, but for me if I was to return to Marrakech I would favour staying in a Riad.
