Do we even need to present the "Palais", one of the most expensive hotels in Marrakech? Its unusual setting, its high-end service and its lush greenery in the heart of a palm grove, makes it the preferred destination for international jet-setting clientele. And for good reason !

    Location 6.5 /10

    The Palais Rhoul lies at the heart of the palm grove, about 4 miles from Marrakech on the road to Fez. It takes some 15 minutes by car to get to the centre of Marrakech or to the airport.

    Accommodation 9.20 /10

    The Palais Rhoul comprises 6 rooms and 6 suites, organised in circular form around the swimming pool. Half of them directly overlook the pool, a very desired location. The rest, located on the lower level, are facing the garden. They all have refined but different decoration, offering a harmonious blend of European and oriental styles. The comfort is optimal: air conditioning, a mini-bar, direct dial telephone, a safe, a king-size bed, CD player ... The service is worthy of 5 stars. Fruits and flowers are picked each day and placed in all rooms. From only recently, the hotel now also offers 4 new suites installed in the gardens in large Berber tents. Very luxurious, these original dwellings do not lack style with their fireplace, the spacious Moroccan living room and the bathroom opening out onto the outdoors. Note that all suites are equipped with a massage table for treatments "at home ".

    Overview 9.20 /10

    A true institution in Marrakech, the Palais Rhoul has undergone a roaring success since its opening in 1994. It must be said that this institution has a special magic, first portrayed in its amazing Morrocan architecture. Modelled as a replica of the palace of the Roman consuls, the hotel is actually nestled in a building in the form of an arc with a very high ceiling, supported by 180 stone columns and opened widely onto the outside by large bay windows. At the center of the building you will find the main lounge, decorated with masterful paintings, beautiful antiquity items, Art Deco chandeliers, an eastern basin covered with rose petals ... It extends onto a perfectly round swimming pool as well as a large rotunda topped by a dome. In the garden spreading over 9 acres, great for relaxation and meditation and abounding in orange trees, hibiscus and jacaranda, you will also find a hammam, designed in pure oriental tradition. Like the restaurant, it is open to people who are not guests at the hotel only upon reservation.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The Palais Rhoul doesn't have a dining room but proposes a typically Moroccan cuisine, couscous and tajines in particular, served at the customer's request: under the rotunda for more romance, in the rooms for total privacy, in the gardens if the weather permits, in the lounges to enjoy the setting... Each morning you will be served a breakfast consisting of pancakes, orange juice and mint tea. To discover the Moroccan cuisine, speak to the staff at reception who will be pleased to reserve a table for you in the best restaurants of Marrakech. Note: given its untypical nature, we did not take account of the restaurant service in the overall calculation of the evaluation on this hotel.

    To know

    With a capacity to accommodate up to 34 people, the Palais Rhoul can be privatised, and rented entirely, for a special occasion. The hotel has also a private parking area offered for free.

      The welcome of a riad, the quality of service of a hotel and the possibilities of a club ... By bringing together these three styles, the Kasbah Le Mirage created its own concept, that is still to be matched in Marrakech. The hotel has a magical and quiet setting of 53820 ft² in the heart of Palmeraie, with a breathtaking view over the Atlas range. It is also worth noting that the staff offers particularly warm hospitality.

      This is a luxury hotel designed for a clientele that is looking for some peace and quiet. The garden provides an idyllic setting, but guests might be disappointed by the poorly decorated restaurant and the rather cold atmosphere of the hotel in general.

      Very recent and well renovated, the riad Jardin d'Abdou has the charm that is found only in establishments that take care of every detail: the paint work, the furniture (custom built), and the bathrooms constructed with local materials. The only negative aspects stem from its location and the simplicity of its rooms.

      When it comes to describing the atmosphere at the Les Deux Tours, 'charm' and 'simplicity' are the first words that come to mind as you find yourself entering the hotel's peaceful, lush green gardens. This is a great place for all those who want to spend time in Marrakech but want to be away from the hustle and bustle of the centre amid truly heavenly surroundings where the birds, the flowers and the trees are the guardians of the 'temple'. The atmosphere at the hotel is a combination of a 1920's feel and Arabo-Andalusian charm.

      It is hard to define this magical and unique place. The Palais Namaskar is completely different than what you will find elsewhere in Marrakesh and we were definitely won over! A luxurious little palace, it manages to avoid all those poorly chosen details that some luxury hotels are capable of including. Neither flashy nor ostentatious, the Palais Namaskar is sober and sophisticated. The luxury can be seen in its magnificent gardens, in the personalised service guests receive from the moment they arrive, in the stylish decor, and even in the lack of any flashy features. The Palais Namaskar will definitely become a go-to place for an exacting clientèle that is discreet but also, and mostly, quite wealthy.

      Excessiveness and pomp are the two keywords at the Taj Palace Marrakesh, which will definitely leave guests talking for a long time and attract a few curious visitors. Those who can afford to stay in this palace will appreciate the very personalised service, the welcome worthy of a king, and the attention that is put into every detail of the decor. Although there will certainly be those who find the decor isn`t to their liking, as it really is very razzly-dazzly and just too much. However, this hotel really is worth having a look at and is sure to stir up the curiosity of tourists.
