Medina Gardens  

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.

Hotel fantastic if you're there for the sights.Within the city walls and five minutes from the souks and ten at the most from the museums tombs and all the other goodies. Everybody there is trying to make a living so keep your wits about you because they all have the patter. First real city only holiday and what a place to choose-------FANTASTIC.The hotel helps as it is so close to sights sounds and smells (most good some bad). Hotel itself is adult only strictly applied low key entertainment(bordering on bad) but so ready for bed after all the adventuring that you do.Marrakech is flat and low rise and fantastic. When we go back it will be here.Thank you Medina Gardens.More

Great hotel, with tiny moans!

Rooms great, bottle of red and some cheap bubbly on arrival. Location is great as has been said before, nice to return to peace after Medina. I don't often do All Inclusive, but for the extra we paid it is good value. Bring a corkscrew with you for the red, as none in room, so either bring home or walk down to bar to get it opened. We had to ask for tea bags to be replenished as the staff do not seem to automatically do this. Thomsons as you provide tea and coffee it would be useful to have milk provided. A helpful member of staff provided us with a carton of milk for the room . most of the time tea/coffee in the dining room was not hot enough. Overall I would recommend to stay here.More

Location, location location..............

The Medina Gardens is centrally located within the hustle and bustle of Marrakech, it sits within the old town but also just minutes away from the commercial French quarter. It could not be situated in a more perfect position. On to the actual hotel, the food and service were excellent and the pools and large gardens were very well presented. Sadly the restaurant was a little similar to a canteen with little space between tables, that said it provided a wide range of quality food with the dinner theme changing each evening. The bar, again being a little cramped for space and the drinks were only of an average quality. The room accommodation was typical of a 4* hotel although the bathrooms were a little disappointing especially as the hotel underwent a renovation in 2014. In summary, although my review is somewhat mixed I return to my first point that the location, only minutes walk from all the top sights far outweighs the negatives. Would stay here again.More

Very good hotel and stay all round.

We have recently returned from a fantastic weeks holiday at Medina Gardens, Morocco. In short, the hotel and staff are both absolutely great, my girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay! On arrival, we were taken outside, provided with a soft drink cocktail and told the basic ins and outs of our stay. We went to our room (room no. 211) where petals on the super king size bed and around the bathroom welcomed us, much to my girlfriends delight! Porters delivered our suitcases soon after we got to our room. Rooms – We opted for a pool view room, this cost slightly extra but definitely worth it. Views from the balcony of non pool view rooms were not impressive, looking out on the front of the hotel or to the side. From all the pool side rooms you can see (and hear) the Koutoubia Mosque which adds a very authentic touch. Being all inclusive, there were two bottles of water, a bottle of wine and also a bottle of Coca Cola in the room. Fruit is also provided, however this was left to go off in our room and felt it should have been removed/replaced by the maid, but that was a minor flaw and didn't distract from the excellent maid service. The extractor fan didn't work in our room, nor was there a toilet brush. Location – Absolutely fantastic!! The hotel is just a 5-10 min walk from the main square and the souks. There is also a government run artisanal centre next to the hotel which sells a selection of souvenirs at fixed prices and absolutely no hassle. You can easily walk to Ben Youssef Madrasa, Koutoubia Mosque, Bahia Palace, Badi Palace, Sadia Tombs, Jewish and French quarters along with the Yves Saint Laurent gardens just being a short taxi journey away. Food – The restaurant is light and airy, with plenty of room outside to eat breakfast lunch and dinner which is important to us as we enjoy being able to sit outside. Plenty of Moroccan dishes on offer for both lunch and dinner, overall the food was very good. Shame there was no bacon (maybe religious reasons) or mushrooms at breakfast or for any meal. Ice cream choice was disappointing, often with only 3 to choose from and vanilla not always available. ‘Fussy eaters’ may struggle, chips and alike only available for lunch, but there is still plenty to choice whatever your tastes. The staff in the restaurant were excellent! Drink – I drank the beer which is Export 33, light tasting and 5.2% ABV. My girlfriend mainly drank red wine which she enjoyed, she is not fussy though when it comes to wine! Pool area and gardens – There are two pools, the large main one is heated. There is also a quiet pool further into the gardens which is not heated. Music is played by the main pool all day, but it is not too loud. However there are huge gardens if you wish to escape with sun loungers readily available. There is also a pool bar serving food and drinks. We tended to get drinks from inside the hotel as the glasses were sometimes dirty from the pool bar, sometimes looking totally unwashed! There are also two outdoor table tennis tables and clay tennis courts. Overall we had a very enjoyable stay, a great hotel made even better by its superb location. We would both highly recommend Medina Gardens. Thanks to all the staff! More

A slice of paradise in the heart of Marrakech

We stayed at this lovely hotel while on business in Marrakech. We stayed 4 nights. Check in was quick and the 3 rooms we had reserved were ready when we arrived. The hotel is ideally located within a short walk from the market & souks. There are 2 beautiful pools, but we did not get to enjoy them since we were here on business and the weather was also quite cool. Nights are also quite cool, so I suggest you dress in layers. The hotel has beautiful grounds, with lemon & orange trees. Everywhere you walked, there was a fragrant smell from the blossoms. The birds were chirping, and it was quite peaceful if you wanted to simply sit under the shade of a tree and read. Two of the rooms we had were quite spacious, while the third room was noticably smaller. One room had a very small balcony, which was barely large enough to step out onto. The other 2 rooms did not have balconies. We enjoyed the breakfast offerings each morning. Wifi thoughtout the hotel was fairly good. The staff were pleasant. Most guests at the hotel seemed to be from the UK. My only negative comment is the nightime entertainment. It would get started around 9pm and run until 11am. The music was quite loud, and not appreciated for those who wanted to get to sleep. The noise level might depend on where your room is, but for 2 of us, the music could be heard from our rooms. Maybe it's just because we had to be up early, but I could not get to sleep with the noise. The hotel was clean and offered a nice place to come back to after a busy day in Marrakech. Right outside the gates of the hotel is a craft market with very reasonable fixed pricing. If you are not crazy about venturing into the souks and bargaining with the merchants, this craft market offers a great alternative! Also, if you enter and turn to the left, there is an ATM where you can get dirham. We enjoyed this hotel, and would recommend it.More
