I recently spent three nights in Delano Marrakech; the Hotel design is excellent and the rooms are really beautifully furnished and finished, somehow very very charming, given the spotless condition of the building and everything in it I assume it has been recently built. Great.
The hotel boasts a very cool roof terrace ( Los Angeles type of thing ) with swimming pool and several beds/sofas and tables where you can sunbath, drink or eat.
the location is also very good as it is just outside the Medina (you don't want to stay within the Medina if you also want to relax during your stay) but it's also close enough to pretty much all the action happening in Marrakech.
The staff was also very well trained, kind and, on average, dynamic and friendly.
It also happened that I used the indoor pool and the gym during my stay and these facilities are also in line with the high standard of the hotel.
So far so good; hence why am I giving 4 out of 5 and not the full mark? the answer is FOOD.
I found the food served in the hotel highly priced but the quality of it did not justify the price, for example I had a club sandwich in the roof terrace restaurant (priced at about 14 euros) but I found the ingredients used to fill it so uninteresting that I just had the bread, which was toasted but in my opinion was few days old, we also had dinner at the restaurant on the ground floor and the bread also seemed last saw the oven few days before; I have to say though that what really needs improvement is the breakfast, I found the buffet quite poorly variegated and after wondering around the 5 meters long buffet table I asked if I could have an omelette, with my surprise they told me that it was not included and I had to pay 8 euros if I wanted one, not exactly the kind of thing you would expect when you are paying over 200 euros per night (breakfast included?).
All in all I strongly advise to stay at Delano, I'm sure that the management will improve these small details in the future and it will be able to earn 5 out of 5 soon.
