The hotel is in an unbeatable location in the heart of Marrakech, and it’s not long had a big refurbishment.
This hotel has one of the best addresses in Marrakech, It’s on the doorstep of Jemaa el-Fna square, which means you’re only 5 minutes’ walk from the souks, restaurants and food stalls.
The hotel has recently undergone a big refurbishment. A lot of the original Arabic features have stayed put, including a 200-year-old tower, but the whole place has been given an injection of contemporary style. From May 2016, this hotel will become part of the Thomson Sensimar collection.

We had a beautiful holiday in this recently refurbushed hotel ,The staff were always ready and could not have been more helpful,The food was more than enough to satisfy everybody and there were plenty of options.We had a room overlooking the pool and it had a tele,fridge and air con also a good size bathroom.The location is only a couples of minutes from the square and the souks and just outside the gate is a artisan centre where they make some of the gifts.More

Everything we hoped for and more!
Thanks to all the staff at the Medina Gardens for a wonderful break. From the moment you arrive the staff at the Medina Gardens do as much as they can to ensure you enjoy your stay. The Customer Services Manager Imad and his team are a credit to Thomson Holidays and the owners of the Medina Gardens. the facilities, food and gardens are great and the location ideal to explore the sites of Marrakech all within a few minutes of the hotel. Treat yourself while away to some treatments at the Spa very attentive and reasonably priced too. Book a pool view room and you get to wake up to palm trees and a pool view with Koutabia's Minoret in the background, great.More

A pane in the glass
Have just returned from a two week stay at the fantastically located Medina Gardens, it is situated within the old city walls and is perfect for Marrakesh's big 6 tourist attractions. The Hotel itself is not the fanciest hotel in the world but has approx 16 small rectangular gardens with palm,olive, orange, lemon and fig trees to provide some dappled shade for those hot afternoons,there are two pools, tennis courts, gym and a small shop. ROOM- Our room was on the second floor it was a good size with bathroom with overhead shower,sink and toilet, a large very conformable double bed, dressing table, two bedside tables and two chairs.Again not the fanciest fittings but everything worked from telly,fridge, air con and constant hot water from taps and shower.The room was spotlessly clean and bed was made everyday and towels changed as required. FOOD- You will as ever read a variety of reviews about the food and I think it will be down to your expectations. The restaurant has a varied buffet theme for each evening some evenings are better than others and some dishes were not to my taste. Saying this though I was always able to feed myself from a good variety of cold dishes, salads, local Moroccan fair, that evenings theme, BBQ, Chefs choice and excellent choice of sweets. There is also an Indian restaurant and Steakhouse, we ate at both and although the Indian is not as you would expect in the UK the food was wonderful, a four course menu is provided and this is none chargeable but requires booking. The Steakhouse however comes at additional charge but without doubt the Fillet Steak was outstanding cooked to absolute perfection and melted in the mouth. DRINKS- All the wines provided were very nice from a choice of red,white & rose and the bottled beer was very quaff able.As for the spirits provided I only had one Vodka and one Gin not the greatest quality but branded varieties where available at cost. SPA- We attended the Spa on our last day as we had been given a free session due to an incident with a collapsible chair leg and rather large window pane in restaurant, the Spa is a very good experience from start to finish (even if I had paid) and would recommend it to anyone. TRIPS- We only did two excursions whilst we were there the first was the discover Marrakesh day and the Atlas mountains 4x4 day. The first trip was a good way to get your bearings around the sights of Marrakesh but is a long day and it was very very hot on the day we attended. The Atlas Mountains 4x4 is a fabulous day out and I would recommend it to all. STAFF- The staff at the Hotel work very hard to ensure that you are looked after, and do so without being overly attentive. The waiters are fantastic and at mealtimes your wine glass was constantly topped as well as your water. All in all a wonderful two week stay would return without doubt.More
First impressions count and when we pulled up at The Medina Gardens we were immediately impressed with the hotel. We were led into a shaded area where we were given a welcome drink and nibbles. After an introduction to the hotel by the guest co-ordinator we were shown to our room where our cases had already arrived. I had upgraded to a room with the jacuzzi on the balcony and this together with the massive bed and large bathroom was just perfect. We only stayed for a week but got to know the staff well and they just couldn't do enough for you. The food was plentiful, well cooked and with loads of choice. The medina and souks are less than a 10 minute walk away and there is an artisan centre immediately outside the hotel gates where you can watch the gifts being made. This certainly was a first class holiday and I can't recommend it highly enough.More

Wonderful Holiday - Hot Hot Hot !!
Wonderful hotel , clean comfortable and good choice of food. The staff and management were all very attentive and couldnt do enough for you. We had room 118 and as our anniversary a complementary bottle of fizz and petals everywhere was awating us in the room.(send email prior to departure). Room with a pool/ garden and mosque view a reccomendation as jaqquzi not really worth the extra as rooms arent as nice and overlooking the resturant area. Room towels were changed every day and always spotless. Very hot for the time of year and reached 45 degrees on Wednesday 13th May !! Thank goodness for a good clean pool, drinks and air con...... . We shall certainly go back - as we were only there for a week and only managed the Atlas mountains trip 4 x 4 , Souks and Square ( did our own thing for the latter ) - as very near the hotel, but amazed as once inside the hotel away from the noise and pandamoniam of the nearby streets the grounds , gardens and impressive lay out were like a hidden oasis. Souk was good fun -We went during the day the stalls are all open by 11am - we haggled of course but got what we wanted at a good price. They werent in your face - if you say no or the price isnt what you want walk away if there interested they will come back - The Square ??a little bit dubious about eating here at night as couldnt see any fridges and it was still 37 degrees at 11pm ! Take in the sights and the smells - avoid the road where the horses and carriges are ! you can get in by turning before or after - all roads lead to the square. It was our first time in a Thomson couples hotel - everyone was really friendly even the French !! half and half mix of French and UK. we are looking forward to booking again in the near future. Certainly recommended to all ! enjoy folks ..More
