CC glanced out of the window sometime before sunrise to see whether the hotel really did have a panoramic view (it does ) and was astonished to see lots of small falcons in the sky. Jumping to conclusions he dragged JD out of bed “to see the Red-footed Falcons”. As the light improved it became obvious that these were not that species at …

... another glorious day in paradise we had mixed feelings for tonight we would be in Marrakech and whilst we were keen to explore magical Marrakech, we were sad to know that we were leaving the Moroccan countryside behind. The varied landscapes, the colours, the textures, the local people and of course the livestock, we had loved it all.
We did however have a drive through the passes of the High Atlas Mountains between us and Marrakech, and we were eager to ...
... about 3 hours in Starbucks we continued on to the train station where we hung out in a McDonald’s until our train was ready. (You're probably sensing a theme here but the big international chains never seem to mind how long you hang around in their restaurant for... very handy for travellers.)
In comparison to the overnight trains we have travelled on in India and Vietnam, this once was luxurious. Not only were the mattresses thick and come ...
Update on the storks was wondering why they are breeding here now instead of Europe. Global warming makes conditions right to stay all year. Migration pattern upset. Marakesch is amazing, a large city full of trees, surrounded by 20 000 date palms on an oasis. All the buildings are the same earthy color. Hotel 1st class but very hot (40 degrees) quite arvo poolside. Carriage ride this ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Amine Marrakech
Pasé un tiempo estupendo
Después de haber leído las críticas estuvimos un poco nerviosos al llegar, pero tuvimos un tiempo fantástico en este hotel. Las habitaciones eran básicas, pero la ropa de cama estaba limpia, y había suficiente agua caliente. El área de la piscina era estupenda con suficientes tumbonas, y el Hamman y el masaje fue estupendo y de una relación calidad precio excelente. El entretenimiento nocturno terminaba a las 11 p.m., así que éste es un lugar perfecto para una noche de sueño sin interrupción. La comida estuvo fina, el personal muy amable, y se esforzó para hablar inglés. Ciertamente nos dimos a entender. Este no es un hotel de cuatro estrellas según el estándar europeo, pero fue una relación calidad precio excelente, y me volvería a hospedar allí.
Un hotel turístico bueno, limpio y básico
Pasamos 5 noches en este hotel. Las habitaciones tenían suelos de azulejo, los cuales mantenían limpios. Las sábanas de la cama siempre estaban limpias. Habían toallas frescas cada día. El personal siempre fue amable, y hablaba buen inglés. Habían muchos turistas franceses hospedándose allí. Un par de noches el entretenimiento se pasó un poquito de la media noche, lo cual no le agrada a todo el mundo. El desayuno estuvo bueno con una bonita variedad. La cena estuvo buena pero un poco cara para las porciones. ¡Generalmente es un hotel bueno para viajeros con presupuesto que no están acostumbrados a hospedarse en hoteles ingleses de 5 estrellas!
we booked hotel as a family of 4, the positive sides and there was a few, the pool was excellent, plenty of chairs and towels and you always seemed to have space. The evening meal buffet nice and varied (lamb and chicken dishes and an abundant of salads) however this was all tempered by the level of service we received, which I thought was poor at best, the pool side meals were over priced and the drinks prices varied from day to day for the same drink. (tip: a good little kebab type shop next door, fed four people at lunch time kebabs and salad, drinks for 100 dhs) The staff were rude and seemed to jabber in french and made no effort to respond to your issues.
Wonderful hotel. After reading some reviews I was quite surprised to find this lovely hotel to be neat and clean. The price also included a large breakfast buffet, which had wonderful fruits, mawais (like crepes), breads, jams, oatmeals and grits .. etc.
We were curious how our stay would be, not just after reading some previous reviews on this hotel, but on asking some Moroccans they ALL were apprehensive for us and said it was not good!
A good clean, ( basic ) tourist hotel.
Spent 5 nights in this hotel . Rooms had tiled floors which were kept clean. bed linen always clean . fresh towels every day . staff always friendly and DID speak good english. Alot of french tourists staying here .On a couple of evenings the entertainment went on a bit ( past midnight ) , which isn`t everyones cup of tea !
breakfast was good , with a nice variety. Evening food ok , a bit pricey for what you get ?
Generally a good hotel for budget travellers who aren`t used to staying in english 5 star hotels !
Had a great Time
After reading reviews we were a bit nervous upon arrival but we had a great time at this Hotel. The rooms were basic but the linen was clean and there was plenty of hot water. The pool area was great with plenty of sunbeds and the Hamman and massage was superb and excellent value for money. The evening entertainment finished at 11pm so this is a perfect place for an undisturbed nights sleep. The food was fine and the staff very friendly and did their best to speak english - we certainly made ourselves understood. This is not a **** by European standards but was excellent value for money and I would certainly stay there again.
My husband and I stayed in the Hotel Amine for a week. Our reservation had been lost but the night staff managed to find us a room. The Hotel is old (think 70's without any work done to it) and not particulary clean. The bathroom was awful and dirty. The carpet in the room was dirty and was not hoovered during the week we were there. Also, the sheets were not changed during our stay and the pillows were lumpy and old. The breakfast was ok if you like pastries and weird white gloopy stuff. The pool was large and looked clean enough but full of screaming children. Don't stay at this Hotel if you want peace and quiet poolside. The pool cafe was badly run and pretty chaotic. We never ate in the restaurant because you had to book the day before via the reception but it looked well patronised. Most guests are French (think Spain full of English) and the staff can't speak English so difficult to communicate if you want anything more complicated than a taxi.
Hotels in Morocco are generally ridiculously overrated, and over-priced, too, considering the average standard of life and salaries of employees. The Amine is given 4 stars, but deserves 2 stars at most for the shabby, small rooms and the restaurant. Everything lacks elegance.
Above Average Stay at Hotel Amine
We stayed here in April 2004. Pleasant, tranquil hotel based on the outskirts of Marrakech. The bedrooms were large and clean and came with television(mainly european channels) and telephone. Hotel advertised as having a room service but after calling the extension several times throughout our stay and never getting a reply, it looks as if this service is not in action.
Hotel resturant is fine ( if a little bit 1970's) and the food was adequate. Reception area, bar and swimmng pool were clean and welcoming. Staff mainly speak French and have little knowledge of English ( like much of Marrakech) so be prepared to brush up on your french phrases before booking a holiday here. All in all a pleasant hotel surrounded by beautiful palms and flowers and good value for money.
