“Home for home”
Reviewed 1 June 2010

Our first visit to the Saadi was in 1974, when the hotel was little more than 10 years old. We were enchanted by the place and have stayed there every year since then - often twice. Altogether, we have spent more than 115 weeks (over two years!) of our lives there and we still love it. It is family owned and family run and this shows. The staff have remained loyal and we now regard them - as well as the family (we have known four generations) as friends.

We have always stayed at the original Saadi hotel, although we did spend one week at the magnificent, new Saadi Palace last year. Old habits, I suppose, but having the same room for so many years does make it feel like home from home.

With several restaurants to choose from, we found the food superb this year. Like all hotels, there have been lapses in the past, but absolutely none this time. We have already booked another three weeks in October.

Large parkland site with several types of accommodation - from hotel rooms to individual cottages. We were in hotel. With pools, spa, casino, shaded pathways etc.
Comfortable rooms, both pool and main restaurants served reasonable food, but a couple of dishes rather experimental and needed refining. Waiter service not really 5 star but adequate with rough edges, although very willing and friendly - mainly French speaking (as well as Arabic)
Had seen reports of noise, but absolutely no problems in our case..
A good base for exploring the frenetic life and mass tourism of Marrakech, before returning to chill out

Read the other negative reviews for the hotel, they are right.
Atlas mountain/poolside room occupants suffer from sleepless nights due to the incessant bass drum noises from the disco. This combined with shouting drunks and roaring cars carry on from midnight to past five every morning.
The so-called gastronomic restaurant served over-priced, over-rated food that upset all four of my party at different times. The restaurant staff were inattentive and patronising beyond belief - even a French couple were complaining!
However, we praise the concierge for his "help" and the room cleaners.
I have asked Kuoni to drop this hotel from holiday brochures ...

Just returned from a fantastic trip to Marrakech. Hotel staff is exceptional, location fantastic, great poker room in adjacent casino! We had fresh roses everyday in our room and the people of Marrakech are extremely welcoming. Best breakfast buffet which was included with room.

Have just returned from 10 days in the Es Saadi. Yes, It's a modest 5 star but exceptional good value. Rooms were lovely, Pool was great and the included meal (HB Deal) at the restaurant was excellent, every single night!
It's a great old hotel, a little tired in areas but all in all, it is very well run and I will be back next year.

Reviewed 14 April 2009

This hotel complex has several levels of accommodations, from a modest hotel with standard rooms, to another hotel with all suites, to private bungalows. Reviews to a large extent will vary depending on which facility is booked. We stayed one night in the standard hotel and it was not worth the price. Shabby, outdated room and an awful breakfast buffet. Casino noise. Upgraded to the suites complex for the next two nights and it was a "night and day" difference. Immaculate, spacious room, magnificent pool and grounds, no noise whatsoever. The desk service, however, was sub-par throughout the complex. They would not cash traveler's checks; they had to run between hotels to make change, the desk personnel were not aware of available spa services.
