How to Get There
Relaxed, friendly and welcoming. Staff were great, even better with the kids. The kids felt totally at home here and were made to feel very welcome, at the same time this is not a place where there are loads of kids running amok. As a couple you could certainly have a good and relaxing time here.
We booked this on a recommendation but would not rebook ourselves. The hotel is cheaper than the riads in the town centre (but only marginally), which is why we booked it. It is however a 25 minutes taxi ride from Marakech and you can easily end up spending £60.00 a day on taxis getting there and back. Also you have to wait 30 minutes for the taxis to arrive. Food at the hotel was not very good in comparison to the other riads we visited as well.
The hotel staff are friendly although the cleaners only visited the room once a day (most 5* hotels offer a turn down service) and often we would return in the evening at 5pm and the room had not been made up. Also the bed's are extremely hard! So if you're after a soft bed I would not recommend this hotel.
However, if you have kids they have an on site creche so if you've got children and are after a cheap holiday then it may be a good choice :)
I spend 4 days here with my girl, just a great little escape. The rooms (jr Suite) was awesome, spacious, well decorated. The pool is very, very nice, and the food is very local and very well done. People are friendly, we had some gymsessions with jeffry who is really good and friendly. Overall a great few days away from it all.
Fellah is in a very dry area so the area itself is not very lush, that has t be said. Oh and they mix chocolate in the capuchino, that has to be the only funny thing. They make that up in great cocktails :-)
Great Customer Service, Friendly Manager, Great Receptionist, Walk with water (it's not free), Walk with a flannel/wash cloth - not provided, Eco-Friendly, Farm and Relaxing
So my initial experience with this hotel wasn't great, but the very first person I met the receptionist Moura was amazing. Welcoming and patient. Her English isn't perfect, but it's better than most English people's attempt (if any) at any language of the country they visit. She was very welcoming and endeavoured to assist me with anything throughout my stay.
I had an issue on my first night. I filled in the Expedia form (who I booked through) rating email they sent me and went to bed. First thing of the next day I get a phone call from reception and they said that they would move me to a better room (it was way better and warmer - being January and all). Moura then came and saw to my problem and then proceeded to show me the entire hotel, which I am grateful for as I was travelling solo.
Next day I met the Manager. Great chic from South Africa. Very friendly. Possibly one of the sole reasons I'm giving this place a good review. I'd seen her the day before, but I thought she was staying in the hotel because she literally makes it her business to talk to everyone. Personally I think this is fantastic, because if you are harbouring any bad feelings it will be completely dissipated after time with Christadelle. She speaks 5 languages so I'm sure she can converse with whomever stays. And as a female travelling by myself, I really needed someone like her.
The food isn't really my thing, but they serve chicken strips (dubbed nuggets lol) and fries. The lamb tagine with prunes wasn't bad either. If you're used to a full English or American breakfast, it isn't for you. It's more continental and healthy.
If you are stressed at work and you need time to de-stress and re-examine your life. This is the hotel for it. It's tranquil. I was possibly the loudest guest as I played music a few times in my room. I had time to read self-help books, I had time to work, time to meditate, catch the sun and begin the novel I've been planning for months. Hopefully by the time I go back to work I will be able to deal with anything thrown at me calmly. It is a eco-relaxing hotel.
There will be a fridge in your room. Some reviews I read prior to travelling told me the hotel doesn't supply bottled water free of charge and that the food was expensive and that the location meant you couldn't go out and get food. I listened to this. I packed 4 2l bottles of water in my luggage (I had a 32kg allowance) and I packed snacks. There is a fridge in your room so you can store food and drink. I also came for my birthday, so I packed a few champagne bottles lol.
I hope my review helped. Seriously the reception team, Christadelle and Moura are amazing. With them you should have an amazing experience, they'll fix anything for you :x So get booking! Have a great holiday!
This place is outrageously gorgeous. Mindfulness tenfold. Having a car made the nearby villages and local Berber markets very accessible. Loved the driving, small motorbikes, bicycles, darkly-clad pedestrians, transporters of every description constantly crisscrossing the roads. Car also useful for trips up the nearby Atlas. Even if no car, the city centre is only 15 k and no problem getting transport. The varied activities in Jemma el Fna and adjacent markets are mind blowing. Highlights are the fresh orange juice for 40cents (4 dirhams) and music from all over Africa. Downsides are the professional hustlers who already have you in the web before you realise it. Great way of checking on your reaction/survival skills. If you have any sense, you will not move to either mountain nor city, but just linger at the Fellah. A dining suggestion is go back down to the main Marrakech road, about 3 k away, turn left and stop off at the roadside village about 5 k down the road, find the tiny cafe nearly opposite the mosque, it’s immediately to the left of the builders supplier shop with wire and wheelbarrows permanently displayed by the footpath. A bun filled with 4 chicken skewers will still be hot by the time you get back to the hotel. For those who enjoy a meal with alcohol, make sure to get in supplies from Carrefour locacted this side of Marrakech centre. For roll your own smokers, bring your supply with you. For those who recognise Islam as a religion of love, easy access to the local mosques, remember to take off the footwear. Note, Fellah is very laid back and respectful of private life and personal autonomy, and if a fast lane vacation is what you seek this is probably not the best destination.
