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.

Oasis of calm in a vibrant city
We travelled on an all-inclusive basis, which was a first for us, and we were very pleasantly surprised by the Medina Gardens hotel. The hotel had every kind of amenity but, for us, the tranquil hotel gardens - complete with tortoises - were a highlight and proved to a wonderful place to relax and soak up the sun. Situated just a few minutes' walk from Jemaa el-Fna and Koutoubia Mosque, just a few steps out of the hotel and you are right in the middle of this fascinating city. We found the hotel staff to be unfailingly polite and helpful and felt that the food and drink were of pretty good quality. Each evening in the restaurant there was a featured cuisine - French, Italian, Mexican and so on - but there were always plenty of Moroccan dishes available too. Entertainment was laid on every evening and the pool area was busy and bustling but a second, quieter, pool can be found deeper into the gardens; this was where we spent most of our time. Given the excitement of the city of Marrakech, most of our days - and evenings - took us into the city itself, so we probably made less use of the all-inclusive features of the hotel than we might have otherwise. Our room was comfortable but was probably still waiting for modernization. We initially felt it to be a disappointment because we had requested a garden room and ours seemed to mostly overlook the hotel entrance and the street beyond; in fact this turned out to be an excellent choice, since the room was quieter than many of the garden rooms, which also looked out over the busy pool area. Problems - our safe did not close and our mini-bar fridge leaked water - were quickly attended to by the ever-helpful guest manager and his colleagues. We had a fantastic stay at Medina Gardens in a package that was very reasonably-priced. The all-inclusive nature of the hotel can mean that some people miss out on all that the city has to offer but we simply used it as a very comfortable base for our explorations and were extremely happy with our stay.More

Hi everyone ,my husband and I are going to this lovely hotel early September. Sorry it's not a review but I was wondering if anyone can enlighten me with a few questions I have...........are there any lifts to the rooms as we are up on the top floor?my husband has a few health problems. Can I have some idea of cost out there?we are all inclusive but would like to venture out and possibly do a few trips if there isn't major hiking involved. And has anyone hired a car and how expensive it is it? I have read all the reviews which have been helpful,we cannot wait to go for 2 weeks hols yippee!!!!! Looking forward to any replies with any information you have to offer many thanks. Donna ððMore
Stayed here from 13th July to 20th July (one week mainly during Ramadan) with my boyfriend and had an amazing time! On arrival we were greeted to a much needed cold flannel and a cocktail sat outside whilst check in was done for us and our cases were taken to our room. The buffet restaurant was left open for arrivals to eat which was handy as we were very hungry!! Our room was everything we could have asked for, over looking the pool (which could get quite noisy late at night although we didn't mind this), it was very spacious and the bed was large and comfy. Rose petals were laid on the bed on arrival and were also put there most days after the cleaner had been! Very nice touch. The staff at this hotel are an accet, couldn't be more friendly and helpful and were part of what made our trip as great as it was. Especially Nick the entertainment guy, Imad, certain guys in the restaurant (don't know your names sorry) and the lady on the spa desk. Ignore what people have said about the food in the buffet restaurant, we thought it was delicious! Our favourite night being the moroccan night, which is not to be missed as they serve up lots of traditional dishes!! Definitely recommend going all inclusive like we did, worth it! Constantly having our glasses refilled with water, wine, beer, coke etc was very much needed in the heat! Service in the restaurant was impeccable! My glass of water was never empty. Both pools were lovely, although we spent most of our time round the quite pool as we wanted to relax. The other entertainment pool was also very good, but to get a sun bed directly next to the pool you had to be there quite early (getting up early doesn't seem like much of a holiday to me). There are lots of available sun beds in the garden and round the quite pool whatever time you turn up. The spa is definitely worth a visit at the hotel, especially the full body massage which we recommend! And if you're going to get a hammam, then do it at the beginning before you get a tan. Overall we had an amazing time here and would definitely return to this hotel if we were going to come back to Marrakech. We just couldn't believe how close we were to the hustle and bustle of Marrakech yet inside the hotel it was so quiet and relaxing. Other points - They have a money exchange desk at the hotel so don't worry about changing any money at the airport as there will probably be a long queue. The safe is charged (not deposit) so bring a little extra for that (we paid 150 dirhams) Unless you have the money, don't bother with late check out as you can book a room for 30 minutes for free to freshen up before the flight home (make sure to book this he day before to get a good time) If you want to get a taxi anywhere then ask the hotel to call a taxi as these taxis have meters so you don't need to negotiate the price before hand (these taxis have a blue number in the bottom right hand corner of the windscreen). All other taxis you will need to negotiate the price, and make sure you're both talking about dirhams!! If you have an iPhone, save google maps of the souks there as this will be handy. You will get lost and that's no fun in the heat! Make sure to respect the locals and cover your shoulders and knees (women), men will get away with short and tshirt. If you're thinking about booking this hotel then definitely do it!! More

Best holiday of our lives
Just got back on the 20th July from a weeks holiday at the Medina Gardens. First time for me and my boyfriend in Marrakesh and in Morocco and was most definitely the best holiday we both have had. The hotel is in an excellent location as we were only a ten minute walk from the Jemma El Fna and yet we always felt perfectly safe. The staff were amazing, always smiling always making conversation but were never intrusive or annoying. The staff that we were particularly impressed by was the guest services manager, a cleaner called Boucheas and a porter called Mohammed. The hotel itself was beautifully decorated big yet cosy. There was a mixture of all ages and we both enjoyed the fact it was a couples only hotel. There was a choice between a quiet relaxing pool and a larger pool which played music and held entertainment and although I usually hate entertainment as it can tend to be cheesy, I very much enjoyed the entertainment on offer. We went all inclusive and there was a good selection of cocktails available as well as a snack bar that offered pizzas, paninis and deserts also part of the all inclusive. There were three restaurants and the buffet restaurant was our favourite as each night there would be a different theme (Asian, Mediterranean, Moroccan, Mexican, French, Chefs Dinner and Italian). The Mexican and the Moroccan nights were particularly good but the Chefs dinner was our favourites sre food was great and we were handed champagne. Overall we had an amazing experience, we would highly recommend it and we are already looking to book a trip in March for my birthday.More
