... to tap our feet and clap our hands only to find that people had started to surround us and join in, fancy creating entertainment in this most famous of squares.
Back at the riad we again adjourned to the terrace where we were joined by Dom, Rob and Urshula. It was so nice finishing the evening sitting up there under a star filled sky sipping on the last of our Baileys and laughing the night away. Such a fitting end to an exceptional travel ...
Today was a bit of a wash as it mainly consisted of waiting around for the overnight train to Tangier. Check out at our Riad was 11am so we hung around in the common area for a couple of hours until we got hungry and decided to leave in search of food. As the main square was practically on the way to the train station we decided to strap on our bags and stop there for lunch. It was a cheap meal of chicken shawarma and chips where despite ...
... El Badi Palace- it is the centre peice of Marrakech from which the city expands. The palace took twenty five years to build, with construction finally completed around 1593 and was a lavish display of the best craftsmanship of the Saadian period.Constructed using some of the most expensive materials of the time, including gold and onyx, the colonnades are said to be constructed from marble exchanged with Italian merchants for their equivalent weight in sugar. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Es Saadi Gardens & Resort - Hôtel Marrakech
Les principaux points positifs de cet hôtel sont le personnel agréable et sympathique, la super piscine, le piano bar et le restaurant à la carte. Malheureusement, la récente rénovation de la majorité des chambres ne masque pas leur style années 60 vieillot : elles sont petites et sombres.
La taille des balcons ne permet pas de s'y asseoir confortablement. Nous avons trouvé le service du petit-déjeuner médiocre. Le personnel se démenait pour garder des tables propres pour les nouveaux arrivants et pour regarnir le buffet quelque peu clairsemé.
Il y avait beaucoup d'activités mais pas assez de personnel pour superviser.
Bien mieux que prévu
J'avais réservé cet hotel sur expedia avant de vérifier les critiques de ce site. Je suis donc arrivé en craignant le pire après avoir lu ce déluge de critiques.
Après y avoir passé un long week end en mai, je dois dire que j'ai été fort agréablement surpris par l'hôtel : les chambres ne sont pas énormes mais extrèmement confortables et propres, le service empressé et efficace, la piscine agréable et propre.
Je ne sais pas quels sont les standards de ceux qui contribuent à ce site, mais je suis surpris d'une telle haine pour un hôtel somme toute très correct pour son prix.
Even if I came to Morocco with low expectations, I wouldn't have been prepared to this...other critics are true, and sometimes even not close to reality !
This hotel is an outrage to the national tourism industry. A shame our travel agency did not warn me. Pictures attached give an overview of the "balcony" and the "bathroom". All very depressing and dirty. Staff completely incompetent and inadequate. Room for improvement ? complete turnover and refurbishement would do better, presumably
as with the june 2006 review we returned recently from a visit to es saadi and thought it only fair to put the record straight.
Oh dear oh dear. When I booked my wife and I into this place I knew that I had made a horrible mistake, even before we got there.
My wife and I were happy to springbreak in Morocco and all excited to go to Marrakech after spending a few days in the lavish and grand Sofitel Thalassa in Essaouira (now that's a real 5star hotel)....The Es Saadi has put us out of our good mood for the rest of the trip !
Pity about the breakfast
The main positives about this hotel are the delightful and friendly staff, the excellent pool, piano bar and a la carte restaurant.
Sadly, the fairly recent refurbishment of the majority of the rooms can do nothing to disguise its ?1960's vintage: they are rather small and dark. Balconies are not adequate for sitting out in comfort.
We found the continental breakfast service poor.
Staff struggled to keep tables clear for arriving guests and the somewhat sparse buffet replenished. There was a lot of activity, but more supervision is required.
HOME FROM HOME
Been visiting since 1992 twice a year not full of poodles and french as quoted by another member. a lot of familes with young children go in the summer. lovely rooms, good food excellent staff what else could you want
Arriving in Winter, we were meant to be staying in a little riad in the little of the medina. However the calls to prayer, from the mosque next door at huge volume, combined with the cold cold nights with no insulation and terrible heating quickly put us off the cute riad concept.
