We went back to Marrakech last week for 5 days and had a brilliant time! I love it so much there. I’m just so drawn to it and feel like it ticks all the boxes, whether you’re looking for a few days of exploration or relaxation.
This time we stayed at the most amazing 5-star hotel- the beautiful Mövenpick Hotel Mansour Eddahbi , a few Just a few minutes away from the bustling Medina in the central L’Hivernage district.
Firstly, I got lots of messages on my Instagram asking if Marrakech is safe/child-friendly etc. I’ve been there twice and in my experience -YES! I couldn’t recommend it enough! I’m literally obsessed with the place.
The Movenpick hotel is absolutely perfect for everyone. Families, couples, corporate weekends away or solo traveling. We met a lovely girl there with her two sons who was on her own and was thoroughly enjoying it!
If you’re going to Marrakech, try to get your accommodation to organize airport transfers. It’s safer than just hopping into a random taxi at the airport. Movenpick has gorgeous big cars which had baby seats too. I think it was about 36 euro each way.
Marrakech is the same time zone so there’s no jet lag coping if you’re traveling from Ireland or the UK. I was starving when we arrived so we went straight to the restaurant by the pool and got the nicest burger. I can’t stress enough how good the food was at the hotel. It has 6 restaurants and all are as good as each other.
There are taxis outside the hotel next to the police checkpoint and it really does feel so safe and well organized. We always decided on the price before we got into the taxi too.
The room we had was insane! It had the biggest bed with the softest linen. (Look at this bath!)
It was at the back of the hotel which was a bit more private and had this beautiful smaller pool. I got a massage at the incredible spa across the way while Daniel took the girls to the P’tit Moussafir Kids Club (this means little traveler!)
The Moroccan people are so humble, kind and they love children! The staff at the hotel were a true reflection of this and really made our stay as enjoyable as possible.
Weather-wise, it was hot, but not unbearable, you know? I would definitely recommend to come here in September! I could be ranting and raving about how great the hotel is forever- you’ll just have to go and try it yourself!
