We have just had a week staying in this fantastic place. A bit out of town but well worth it. The whole place is just like being in another world. All of the staff are so lovely and helpful and free to chat and answer any questions you may have. Highly recommend this place to go and completely relax yet a taxi is always available and the staff are so willing to organise tours. Thank you for making our stay so pleasant
During our first visit to Morocco we stayed at the Palais Mendi for 4 nights, a little out of the way from the centre but nice and peaceful away from all the noise. We were upgraded straight away to a presidential suite which was pure luxury and huge. Having always stayed in big chain hotels before it was very impressive this boutique hotel and the calmness, tranquility you get in a place like this. Service was excellent although a little slow!! Poolside was nice and clean and big. We used the spa the therapist was so good she left me revitalised!! Overall a great place to stay it was very quite when we visited which was excellent as we wanted some ME time and in the silence we could hear the birds in the morning sun.. Well looked after immaculate gardens. Restaurant in the hotel was good but pricey. Had lunch near the poolside which was suburb. Breakfast was ok same things everyday could do with a change after 4 days. Overall a beautiful place with lovely rooms and friendly staff and management.
We spent a week in Palais Mehdi on our honeymoon and it was like stepping into another world - absolute paradise! There is a beautiful sense of serenity in the hotel - it's a calm oasis surrounded by palm trees with birds singing constantly and gardens full of mint & exotic plants. The hotel building is an amazing piece of architecture - you really get the feeling of being in a palace with it stunning arches, columns and Morrocan lighting. There is also a very extensive collection of art and historical items scattered throughout the rooms of the hotel- well worth getting lost in! The breakfast is very extensive with eggs, fruit, cakes and lots of bread & croissants and freshly squeezed orange juice. The food in Palais M restaurant onsite was very good also although a bit on the expensive side particularly for a bottle of wine. There is entertainment most nights in the restaurant which itself is a work of art reminiscent of the Great Gatsby in its design! The pool in the hotel grounds is huge and a lovely place to relax for the day. What we loved most about Palais Mehdi was the relaxed atmosphere and the fantastic staff - from the gardeners to the waiters to the management- a brilliant team! A huge thanks to Sofia whose lovely friendly manner really made our stay special - we felt like we knew her for years! She's a credit to Palais Mehdi. We'll be back!! :-)
We received a great upgrade to an impressive suite looking across the gardens to the Pool. Room Service was superb with cleaning and tidying a constant occurrence. The pool is very large and there are plenty of comfortable beds. Luckily we were there to laze as speed is not high on the cultural list for any type of food or drink service. But when the service happened it was always with a smile.
This hotel only has 22 rooms/suites, lovely pool with comfortable sunbeds. lovely smiley staff who were all very helpful...the only criticism is that their concept of time is different to ours - if you want something in a hurry or by a certain time forget it! The owner is charming and everyone from the office staff to the waiters and cleaners
End of Jan is the off season and we pretty much had the place to ourselves. Good room but I shall remember sitting around the pool in bright sunshine listening to nothing but birdsong and the gurgling of the pool. Sophia was so welcoming and could not do enough for us.
We had 5 nights here and had a very relaxing time. The hotel and grounds are beautiful and very peaceful, and the pool is superb. In particular the interior of the mansion is a lovely old Moroccan style mansion with courtyards, marble columns, and little hideaways with couches and curtains. The staff are incredibly helpful. You can eat and drink anywhere in the house and grounds that you choose - in your room, on your terrace, by the pool, in the lounge - just ask. Breakfast was enormous and very filling if you eat it all - we hardly needed lunch! We had dinner in the hotel a couple of times and the food was great - just remember you're paying 4/5-star prices, so it's a little pricey by Moroccan standards. The manager Sofia was also very helpful in arranging taxis, restaurant bookings and tours - useful particularly as our French isn't that great and also the hotel is a little bit further out of Marrakesh centre that most (which is really its only downside, btw). You can see as well that they're still improving things - not all the gardens are quite finished, nor is the tennis court, but they're working on it, it doesn't detract at all from the rest of the surroundings and it's clearly going to be great when they do.
We stayed at Palais Mehdi in late August which is, form what we understand, low season. We pretty much had the whole place to ourselves as there were only a couple of other guests staying there at the same time. Sofia in the front office took great care of us and the rest of the staff was very pleasant as well! The property is beautiful the rooms are spacious and clean, and it's not far from town. As a bonus, Nikki Beach is really close by in case you need to throw a western style pool party into the mix. The property is guarded by an adorable trio of dalmatians.
We decided to spend a weekend in Marrakesh and found through excellent recommendations Palais Mehdi. We were greeted by Sofia, and upgraded us freely to an executive suite. Service is great, location and surroundings are great, Breakfast and lunch are awesome. We have kids and they've enjoyed the swimming pool and the space to play around. Highly recommended as a place to get away from the hustle and bustle from the city.
We found online a package deal of 240dhms for pool access and lunch. When I emailed to confirm and book I only received a response when I asked for a response again and the short message of "no it's not available" was all. I called to reserve and asked again for the promo and she said no it will be cheaper if you take lunch and access seperate which totally did not make any sense as access would be 200dhms already and the cheapest dish 80dhms. But I stopped the discussion e would see. We went there, she showed us where we could have lunch and we just sat at the pool all day and enjoyed ourselves. When we wanted to leave they gave us a bill of 300dhms each as we did not have lunch??! It was mandatory they now said. They said they had mentioned it before. No way as then I wouldn't have come. Next door has a package deal even. If I could think we could sit only for 200dhms at a pool. Yes at Jardin d'Ines and Pacha for instance you can. But those places are not the same. There's no-one at Jardin she claims. Well there was no-one here besides us either. Then I said but we were just not hungry. You cannot force a lunch. Well they wanted a certain clientele. Oh so we aren't. Well then we won't come back. What an arrogance. We gave them 200dhms per person and left. Finding they also did not order a taxi for us. Customer relationship not high on their agenda!
