About the location
Marrakech’s beauty is as distinctive as it gets – minarets, mosaics and the fountains of riad courtyards, all set against the backdrop of the snow-tipped Atlas Mountains. One of Morocco’s most important cities, Marrakech fuses Arabic and African to form a fascinating cultural capital.
Its pulsating heart is Djemaa el-Fna, a big square set on the edge of the old city. Here you’ll find rows of open-air food stalls (try the melt-in-your-mouth lamb tagine or seafood brought in from Essaouira that morning), while jugglers, snake charmers and belly dancers put on a show.
For souvenir shopping, go traditional. The aromas and vibrant colours of the souks are the classic snapshot of Marrakech. The labyrinth of stalls sells bags of aromatic spices, hand-beaded slippers and delicate jewellery, with different souks specialising in different goods. Start at Souk Semmarine, which sells an intriguing mix of everything – but don’t forget to haggle...

The staff were truly wonderful, helping us book a trip into the Atlas Mountains, explaining what to see downtown, and making us specialty drinks night after night. The hotel is located outside of town, strongly recommend organizing transport to the hotel in advance or you will be taken advantage of by a taxi, even official ones and even if you speak French or Arabic.
The rooms are huge, decadent, and turn down service is pretty sweet. The entire property is a massive garden looking out onto the Atlas Mountains.
This place is set to be a very nice Fairmont, but the smoking just kills the atmosphere. Smoking outside, ok, it's not Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise, but smoking inside the hotel? Inside the restaurants? Inside ALL the restaurants? We became relegated to room service. Even if it is Morocco, this is still a Fairmont and even Sub-Saharan Africa has largely banned smoking indoors. It's not fair to the staff or guests to work and dine in that kind of environment.
Staff were wonderful, but there was some confusion on check-in as we were 'two guys' sharing room.... shouldn't we have two rooms? Did we make a mistake with the reservation? The staff ended up being fine with it, but a note to LGBT travelers to be careful.
We expect the best with Fairmont, and this just fell short. Ban the smoking, love all and serve all, and this place could be great.

The last couple of days we were staying at Fairmont Royal Palm, a resort that we visited last year too. And oh it was so amazing! Our suite had the best view, since we were overlooking the Atlas Mountains and it was just insane to wake up to. If you are early, the sun rises from behind the mountains and it???s such a magical view.. That???s why we had to have our breakfast in the room, since there is nothing better than a great breakfast, with some sun and a incredible view, right? It was one of that moments, that already have turned into memories.
Fairmont Royal Palm is an exclusie retreat offering genuine hospitality developed in harmony with the surrounding environment. It is nestled in a natural landscape of 231 hectares (!!!) of palms, olive and orange trees. You can feel the nature around you the whole time, and it???s just impossible to describe. Not only the surrounding impressed us, also the spa is absolutely worth mentioning. It???s such a beautiful, light and calm area. It???s just perfect for a relaxing afternoon. We went there to relax, however, it was even more beautiful than in our memories, so we end up taking tons of pictures there. After our little photo session, we both had the signature treatment, which was an amazing massage, with a ??? great smelling ??? oil made of fresh oranges. Could it get any better than that? We absolutely loved the massage and recommend that to everyone. It really will make your stay even more amazing.
Since the resort is 12 km from Marrakech, we decided to stay in and have our dinner at the international restaurant Le Caravane, and oh that was really really great! They have a great menu with a lot of choices. We think it???s really important hotels serve high quality and yummy food when the city is a while away, and Fairmont for sure does.
If you ask us. Fairmont Royal Palm is a perfect getaway when visiting Morocco. It is such a quite place, perfect to relax, and still really close to the busy and hectic city of Marrakech.
