OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

The hotel entrance is in an alley off Derb Assehbé, on the west side of the medina near the Bab Doukkala mosque. The neighbourhood is scruffy and rather soulless with a large roundabout and modern hotels close by. Airport transfers take 20 minutes, parking is available nearby. The main square of Jemaa el-Fnaa is a ten-minute walk to the southeast. Dar El Basha, a splendidly decorated palace from 1910, lies to the east.

By plane: direct flights from London to Marrakech Menara take around 4 hours. The hotel is a 20-minute drive from the airport. Parking costs €5 per day. Book flights to Marrakech.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

The property is a happy jumble of patios, pools, lounges and dining venues enhanced by olive trees and flowering plants. Heavy doors and serried arches create a sense of grandeur, but there are also many intimate spaces to relax in, plus a boutique selling cherry-picked Moroccan clothes, bags and homewares.

THE FACILITIES

The hotel has two heated pools plus sunbathing areas, along with a basic gym, a small business centre and an ATM. There is an outstanding choice of experiences from quad biking and visiting an organic garden to an 'Instagram Expedition' and storytelling in a private home.
