We have just come back from a marvellous stay at the Palais de l'O, booked through Voyage Privée - it was absolutely incredible and perfect for relaxation - just what the doctor ordered!
We spent a few days in a fantastic Riad in the heart of the city (Riad Tamarrakecht) before coming here and it was absolutely the best decision because we got the best of both worlds and got to experience inner Marrakech. Once you're here, you don't really want to leave! You can easily spend all your days relaxing by the pool or in the hotel's spa and beautiful gardens.
Although it's a 20-30 minute drive from the centre, it's in a quite, rural area so there's not much to see within walking distance. If I could make one suggestion it would be that the hotel gave better directions and had much better signage. On our way to Palais de l'O we spent an hour and half lost driving around the rural back "roads" of Marrakech for a ride that should have taken 20 minutes! We found it in the end but it would have been helped with much clearer directions and signage. This wouldn't be a problem if you used their airport transfer service but was a problem if coming from anywhere else in Marrakech as no one seemed to know where it was.
Once we got there though the nightmare journey was worth it. The hotel is so beautiful, peaceful and quiet. The staff are incredible - very discreet but also helpful, attentive and friendly. One particular staff member, Abderahmane, was absolutely amazing! He made our trip so memorable and special by being so friendly and going above and beyond. I told him it was my mum's birthday and I wanted to do something special and he personally went into Marrakech to find a cake for her, then helped me surprise her and sing Happy Birthday. We were both so touched and it was really special and memorable.
Breakfast is wonderful, incredibly varied and filling - easily counts as lunch as well. The hotel grounds are also so beautiful. We really needed to relax and found the perfect place to do so. We enjoyed our time here so much and wouldn't hesitate to come back or recommend it.
