Worst experience ever! From a non impressive suite structure that does not offer any privacy at all to a bed that felt like sleeping on a station bench. As if that was not enough, we were accused of damaging an iron as we checked out. Taken for an interrogation that left me immensely offended. When I suggested that we rather open our suitcases for them to check if there was any burnt clothing item, they refused to do so but kept on insisting we had damaged their iron. Never have I felt insulted and degraded in my life. The place is just a far cry from what is advertised. Not my money's worth and I will forever regret making a booking there and will NEVER recommend to anybody.

Worst accommodation ever, and no value for money. Will not recommend this venue to anybody in the future. Using social media to spread the message at every opportunity I get. Listed are a few issues: Marrakesh accommodation

1. Tatty and dirty
2. White linen, should have no stains.
3. 2 people 6 days - cupboard space is a joke, we had live out of the suitcase.
4. Room was cramped with no space to move, or a chair to sit in.
5. No bath plug
6. No soap in dispenser
7. No soap dish or facility to hold shampoo etc.
8. Shower in need of repairs, tiles broken and door.
9. Concept and idea is great but implementation leaves a lot to be desired.
10. Too far from the sea and the view is that of the neighbors wall outside the room.
11. Definitely not value for money and very over priced.
12. Would not recommend at all to anyone at any time.
13. Main gate does not operate.
14. Bed side mat to say was filthy, would be too kind.
15. Definitely recommend Safari removes this venue from their listing.
16. Towels so rough. Actually used sand paper that was softer. We used our own beach towels in the bathroom.
17. Sink and bath were not cleaned.
18. Dustbin in bathroom was not cleaned and contained previous occupants rubbish.
19. Sink taps so tight I had to use spanner from car to close taps to stop water leaking.
20. Basin so dirty we dared not put anything down.
21. Sink cupboard filthy and broken and inside was water stained from leaks.ESTABLISHMENT RESPONSE:Dear Mr Killian,Many thanks for taking the time to provide practical input. We are grateful that you appreciated our Arabian theme and apologise for the inconvenience experienced by you, especially that the gate was on manual control for four hours whilst a electrical point was undergoing maintenance works. Im sure that youll be pleased to hear that we have addressed some of your other concerns as follows; Install the new shampoo and conditioner dispensers which were recently delivered Install a new shower unit Replace the old towels with soft, luxury towels and use staysoft in the interimWe do take our guests input seriously and respond by tweaking our maintenance and quality control program. We are graded as HIGHLY RECOMMENDED by AA who do a thorough, annual inspection and always comment on our high standard of hygiene and rigorous maintenance program to constantly upgrade the facilities at Al Marrakesh Guest House.Once again, many thanks for your contribution.Kind regards, Rae Berry proprietor of Al Marrakesh Guest House

review by John Kilian, South Africa

"December break"

We stayed at Al marrakesh for 4 nights. The staff were great and friendly. We used it as a bed rather than a resort, as we were out all day every day. If that is your thing then this resort is ok. The pool was half full, no shower, access was steep and narrow, the parking a nightmare, so not recommended for family stay when you want to use ammenities.

I had a very pleasant stay here. I have never stayed in a guest house before and wouldn't have if I had another option but I am glad I did. The setting is simply amazing, nestled in a gorgeous jungle setting complete with a band of about 20 monkeys that visit most mornings. Very friendly people here and the room was clean. Couldn't ask for more, if I come back to Durban I will skip the pretentious Fairmont and go straight here.
