Kenzi Farah Hotel, Marakesh Morocco
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
No weather data found for [, ”Morocco”, ”Morocco”, horizontal]
A well respected, presentable property which is handy for both the new town and Medina, although the less agile will probably need a taxi for the journey to the main sights.
Pleasantly calm surroundings attract those seeking a restful location with plenty of onsite facilities. However, grounds and pool area are rather compact when considering the number of rooms on offer.
A modern pink coloured, straddling building with shops in one corner. There is a security post at the main gate with a slope and steps up to the impressive, wide canopied entrance. Most rooms have a balcony and some overlook the pool area and gardens.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: Some rooms
Built Year: 1981
A large lobby area provides a welcoming atmosphere with a plentiful supply of comfortable seating, ornate tiling and attractive artworks. A wide reception desk looks efficient and formal.
Main restaurant appears a little functional, whilst the two evening restaurants are more charming and intimate, with their smart tableware and well spaced tables. An English style bar offers musical entertainment in the evenings and an additional bar has a terrace overlooking the gardens.
Grounds are well maintained and attractively laid out although the pool area may become congested when the property is full. There is a large restaurant/breakfast terrace to one side of the garden.
Colourful shrubs and mature trees create a calm, tranquil ambience, as do the flower lined walkways and small lawns. It is said that Winston Churchill used the grounds in some of his paintings.
Spa facility is particularly well equipped and there is a shop in one corner.
Area Type: In the Hivernage district of the new town, surrounded by other similarly styled properties, with a selection of shops and eateries within 400m. Medina with the souks and Jemma el Fna starts 600m away to the east, and taxis wait in a street across the main road.
