... overloaded drive which had our eyes aching from the exposure to such natural rugged beauty.
Having come down through the mountains we took the opportunity to enjoy the serenity a little longer by stopping for lunch at a lovely cafe by the side of a dry river, with views up to yet another hillside village.
It wasn’t long before we were driving through the walls of the medina and checking into our riad, the delightful La Maison ...
... prices our waiter was wearing a nice black suit and tie.
Having stayed as long as we could at the restaurant we decided to just head for the train station. On the way we realised we were actually quite close to Starbucks which was quickly deemed a much nicer place to wait out the day than the train station. Surprisingly it was one of the nicer Starbucks coffees I have had which was probably due to the fact that they had flat whites on the menu.
... quiet and shy but i suddenly found my tongue and have been chatting freely. Tea was fantastic again, this time in our mess tent which was small but cosy. The climate in this valley is much cooler which is partly due to the absence of the sun with the clouds still lingering. I am hoping they won’t be around long as they will spoil the photography. As promised, i have a few notes and observations on my group. Everyone seems very nice although there are several who ...
... it was dark outside and the lights were on. There were thousands of people, many of which were Moroccans looking to sell you something. The main pedestrian way leading to the square and the square itself had everything from restaurants to snake charmers. It was quite ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Palmeraie Golf Palace & Resort Marrakech
J'ai réservé dans cet hôtel par l'intermédiaire d'Expedia, après avoir passé en revue tous les hôtels à Marrakech. Celui-là semblait plus traditionnel que les chaînes internationales mais avec le confort d'un 5 étoiles. L'hôtel est situé à environ 15 minutes de l'aéroport en taxi (200 dirhams), et est un peu en-dehors de Marrakech (environ 10 minutes.)
Nous avons passé 4 nuits au Palmeraie Golf Palace au début du mois de novembre, et nous avons été déçus par notre séjour qui n'était pas à la hauteur d'un hôtel 5 étoiles.
Venant de lire les commentaires en anglais sur cet hôtel, je m'étonne qu'aucun Français ne soit encore intervenu, car nous sûrement nombreux - trop? -à y avoir séjourné.
We stayed at the Palmeraie Golf Palace for 8 nights from 10th June 2006 and I was very disappointed.
A stunning hotel, with beautiful rooms, set in a complex of shops and restuarants, 90% of which were closed. The restuarants that were open were excellent, breakfast is highly recommended.
My husband and I stayed here for 2 days b/c he wanted to play some golf.
Stayed for 4 nights at the Palmeraie Golf Palce beg of November, and was disappointed by the experience which was not up to 5-star standards.
If you want the full Marrakesh experience, don't stay here; you're better off in a riad downtown. Mind you, the Marrakesh experience is not what it was now that the Djna el Fnaa has been turned into a cheap fast food centre at night (what happened to the snake charmers, whirling devishes, belly dancers, fire eaters, sword swallowers and general crazies that used to make this one of the world's great street theatres?).
Booked this hotel through Expedia after reviewing all accommodation in Marrakech. This hotel looked more traditional than the worldwide chains but all the comforts of a typical 5 star.
We stayed at this hotel to relax for a couple of days before moving to a small riad in the centre of Marrakech.
The rooms, grounds and swimming pools are excellently laid out and well maintained. Service at breakfast, lunch and dinner was very attentive.
Our only slight complaint was that we would have liked to have started dinner earlier than 7.30pm as we have young children, but none of the restaurants opened until then.
