I stayed at this hotel in December 2016 and I chose it to hold a conference for about a week so I used conference facilities, as well as accommodation and other services. Staff : staff members are very very well trained and professional in this hotel. Mr. Adil Rmidi from conference and banqueting is a very very professional well-mannered gentleman who can sort out the most difficult of requests swiftly, efficiently and with a smile. Nothing was too much trouble for him, and he will be your companion throughout your event, making sure all your requests are catered for. He followed up with each of our requests and went through thick and thin to make sure we were comfortable (he event lent me his mobile charger and never requested it back). Not only is he easy-going and professional and never says no, but he is also genuinely kind. I am Moroccan, and I know this is a very rare quality to find in people working in the service sector and in other hotels. Mr. Amine el Meriague was our contact person at the sale and marketing department and was out focal point before and during the event, before Adil took over upon our arrival. Amine is of utmost professionalism, a very genuine humble and professional person who made sure everything was sorted and well prepared during our arrival. And when I discussed catering matters with him, he even called the head chef to discuss the content of our lunches and coffee breaks, making sure every palate and request is catered floor. Amine marvelously coped with last-minute changes and challenges, brilliantly and professionally. Dealing with Adil and Amine was a pleasure, seamless and hassle-free. Again it's not always the case in other comparable hotels in the city where staff is either useless or arrogant or both. Management should absolutely make sure these two persons keep their high motivation as this is crucial for guest satisfaction. Conference facilities : top-notch, modern and overlooking a nice garden (it needs a bit more plans though) as well as the pool. So from the meeting rooms filled of natural daylight (no none of them is dark) participants can get out to the garden for instance during coffee breaks or sit and bask a bit in the sun. Coffee break can either be served indoors, or in the garden (of course Adil was there making sure everything was perfect). Interpretation facilities can be arranged through the hotel at very reasonable costs. Food : coffee breaks and lunches were literally handcrafted with passion. There is a very experienced Moroccan Chef supervising a motivated team and making sure food quality and presentation is top notch. Main courses including local items (yes do request Moroccan specialities for your event if you can/wish, you won't be disappointed) were of the highest quality, and deserts were pieces of art. Very beautiful to look at and to taste (small tartelettes aux framboises, chocolate, etc). Lunch is served buffet-style for groups at the main restaurant which is bright and spacey. The à-la carte restaurant at night was very expensive though and the menu rather limited (mains costing 25 euros minimum and an orange juice 6 euros, but again this is a 5 star hotel). Breakfast was loaded with fresh items, including freshly sliced fruit such as orange and melon, a good selection of bakery items, an egg station attended with a chef and providing also Moroccan pancakes (baghrir) as well as other delicacies. Do not expect smoked salmon though as it's not in the menu.The bread selection is very very good though, as well as the viennoisies or danish pastry or whatever you wish to call it. The other huuuge plus of course is the freshly squeezed orange juice which you can help yourself to every morning. The breakfast room is very nice on the ground floor, and very pleasant Location : The hotel is located in the upper floors of a small shopping centre in the modern part of town, a stone throw from the main railway station. The mall has parking facilities which hotel guests could use (don't know the exact cost though), a small carrefour supermarket for essential items and a busy starbucks at the street level. The rooms are different from one another, you have those overlooking the pool, which are business class rooms that tend to be slightly larger with an awkward desk arrangement though (this is a matter of taste), king or twin size beds that are very comfortable and white crispy sheets. Rooms facing the street are not noisy by any means, and the configuration of some of them can even be nicer than business class rooms, depending on the layout. You can choose a room facing the main street, on the upper floor, you will have a huge terrace and you can see some of the city buildings. Gym : there is also a fitness centre with enough machines for a workout including a smith machine with a selection of weights, seated chest press machine and shoulder press. There is however no barbell for biceps curls, and the selection of free weights is rather limited (up to about 24 kg per dumbbell, may be enough for a shoulder workout but not for proper chest dumbbell press sets). In addition, you have a few running machines and a nordic walking and some bikers. The gym is definitely much better than other Moroccan hotels, but sadly not equipped enough for gym goers. There is also some cable machines (those useless techno gym ones which are mostly designed for women). All machines are technogym and towels are to be requested at the spa area, just like a bottle of water (no they don't have them on display at the gym). Pool : there is also a very nice aquarium like swimming pool, of about 20 meters long, which is heated (not enough for cold days though), could be pleasant if it's sunny but no when it's very cold. Spa : all services are provided here, didn't test but was told that a visit to the Moroccan bath sets you back around 10 euros, this does not include any treatment of course, except from the possibility to enter the facility. Bar : the bar gets a bit lively at night with a live band playing all nights, sadly though smoking is permitted in the bar (which is a pity as those wonderful sofas will end up being torn and destroyed in no time). The band is very good, although the music can be a tad loud, but this is a great alternative to those that wish to stay in. All in all, staff make this hotel a gem of a place, whether for private or professional visits to Marrakesh, look no further, go straight to Radisson, tell them how to make you happy and let them take care of you. Rooms are top notch, food is very good quality, service is excellent without being too much. It is difficult to find a similar level of quality and service in Moroccan hotels, but Radisson brings things to a whole other level. I will definitely be returning for future visits. Management should look into : - introducing a few delicacies at breakfast to make it wonderful instead of very good such as smoked salmon for breakfast, this is standard in most hotels of this category. A Nespresso machine is also standard nowadays. - having towels and bottles of water at guests' disposal when entering the gym, as most do not know where to request them. - filling in the empty space in the gym with extra machines for fitness freaks (no running machines are not enough, a few barbells and standing cable machines and ropes would be much appreciated). - making the hotel common area smoke-free including the bar. Smoking guests do tend to adapt and can have a smoke outside if they wish. Collapse

I have come to realize that the hotel standards are not the same all over the world which is why many hotels in morocco are rated 5 stars when its not even close. Just because some smiles at you and greets you all the time does not make a hotel 5 star! Radisson Blu is designed very beautifully but not practical at all. The rooms have an open plan bathroom and room. Between the sink and bedroom is a cutout screen so water splashes over onto the carpet. Shower glass doors do not close 100% so the room gets flooded unless u shower in a small tiny conner. The toilets are in a smaaaaal tiny room with no ventilation whats so ever so the entire hotel smells of stale toilet air... disgusting! Another thing that bothered me alittle was that there was a sign that said no smoking and if you do smoke, you will be charged a fee for the deep clean. I understand that you would be charged for breaking the rules - duh! But what i dont get is the deep clean only after smoking...Does that mean that they do not do a deep clean after each guest leaves? I felt really disgusted as tho i was surrounded by bacteria galore. I could not wait to get out of there and scrub myself clean. The hotel is located in a great area right next to a mall so no problem with food options and you can walk around in that area to explore. I love that about this hotel. There is no proper parking outside the hotel so when we were getting dropped off, we were having alot of problems. Dont understand why the hotel , being 5 stars mind you, did not take care of this. We went on a tour and when we got back , the police did not want us to jump off as the tour guide had to double park because there was no parking. Hotel staff or concierge were no where to be found and when they finally did appear , they were of no help. Breakfast is average as well. Had your basics such as eggs and sausages and thats kinda the main things. The chef making the eggs is extremely rude and arrogant so go with a calm mind as he really does not listen to you and what you want. He tells you what you should put in your omelet and you cannot tell him otherwise because he then gets angry and starts cooking furiously. Bits of egg flew right at us (EW!) all because we did not want chilli powder but some of the chilli paste. So overall this hotel is great if you plan on staying for just 1 night. Any longer and its not comfortable at all Collapse

My husband and I stayed at the Radisson Blu hotel, Marrakech Carre Eden from December 21-29, 2016 .This property is very well located, clean, new and stylish. The hotel staff is extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful. during our entire stay we were looked after by Ismail Elbezim. He went out of his way to make our stay extremely comfortable and enjoyable. Upon arrival we were shown to our room by Ismail, a pool view superior room. Ismail arranged all our tours and introduced us to an excellent guide. he also suggested some excellent restaurants both in Marrakech and Essaouira. I would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay here during our next visit. Thank you Ismail, we look forward to seeing you again ! Collapse

Stayed here at the end of October/beining of November and overall it was a lovely stay. The staff were all very accommodating and the room was lovely and clean. Only slight negative was that the pool was being refurbished for the first two days that we were there and we had no prior warning of this. They did however have access to the pool at the movenpick hotel near by that we could use. Would really recommend this if your looking for somewhere not in the centre of the medina. Its located in the new town which is about 5mins away so gives you the best of both worlds. Collapse
