How to Get There
We stayed in Marrakech for one extra night at the end of our Moroccan adventure, after touring the city a few days prior and staying at another hotel. La Villa des Orangers was so charming that we never even left to venture back out into the streets. It's a bastion of luxury and peace in a bustling, noisy city. The public spaces are charming and relaxing with beautiful Moroccan design everywhere. Enjoyed lunch by the lovely pool, relaxed in the various "living rooms" and experienced the Hammam in the hotel spa area, which if you have never done it should definitely be on your to-do list. It was amazing and completely new to us.
I’ve been touring Morocco for a few weeks and was really looking forward to a true 5-star stay. We were booked into a Junior Suite Duplex by our agent. Upon arrival, we realized there was only a bathtub (no shower) and we were told we should have known to request a shower when the agent made our booking. Really? Our duplex meant the bathroom was downstairs and our bedroom was up a very steep and narrow flight of stairs (good luck navigating that in the middle of the night). Once upstairs, the bedroom was excessively hot and the air conditioning wasn’t working (they said it was switched off for the season). What 5-Star hotel turns off the AC - ever? We were given a very noisy fan to combat the heat. There was only one small window for air which opened into the courtyard that leads to reception. So every guest passes under that window leading to a lot of noise from walking and talking. The restaurant was fine but seriously overpriced. $100 for 2 bowls of risotto (no wine or other drinks or dessert). We asked to be moved and we told it was impossible as they were booked. The staff was indifferent to the problems. The girl at the front desk literally shrugged her shoulders at us. Then we were told the AC was fixed. We tried it and it was not fixed. We actually moved to a much lower quality hotel for our last 2 nights. Very sad for a Relais and Chateau property. Very sad for my stay in Marrakech.
Absolutely amazing riad; a perfect escape hidden on the edge of the Medina, a sanctuary from the hubbub outside - beautiful courtyards with fresh roses in the fountains and orange and olive trees and pomegranate bushes by the pool.
Completely blown away with the attention to detail and great service. As expected with a relais and chateaux hotel, the food was excellent (top tip: if you book directly with the hotel, lunch is included).
There are three swimming pools (although if the private riad is booked, only two - the courtyard and rooftop pool). The courtyard pool is much nicer/ bigger and does get plenty of sunlight.
HUMUNGOUS bathroom, option to have breakfast anywhere you want (in any room/ courtyard), as you explore the riad you will discover lots of hidden gems (e.g. beautiful backgammon table, mahogany study etc)
Only thing that doesn't get 5 stars is the spa - we went for a hammam and the experience felt a bit rushed and slightly confusing (not particularly relaxing).
We also went for a nosy around other recommended hotels (El fenn and la mamounia) and Orangers was the best by far - absolutely blew the others out of the water and we are so pleased with our choice
