Michlifen Ifrane Suites & Spa
Ranked #1 of 9 Hotels in Ifrane
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 November 2011

We were visiting friends in Ifrane and went to the Michelifen for a few drinks and coffee and to take a look around. Service was wonderful, and though our French & Arabic is poor, their English was really well spoken and they were more than patient with our attempts.

We don't look like what might be considered the typical clientele of a 5-star hotel & spa but we were warmly welcome and treated to excellent service, good coffee and drinks, and great bar snacks. We were also told to take as many pictures as we like, which we'll put up on our website. Thank you for the relaxing afternoon, Michlifen Ifrane! We'll return on our next visit.

This place is magical. About 45 mins from Fez Airport but worlds away, in Morocco's "Little Switzerland", this palatial chic boutique ski hotel almost feels like a destination unto itself. Inside, the reception areas and restaurants were stunning (very good food, apparently most of the produce is sourced from a local organic farm, including the delicious goat's cheese we had at the huge, gourmet breakfast) and we had a wonderful local wine at dinner.

The modern spa with a hammam is an oasis of luxury but we were more than happy just soaking up the views and blissful peace and quiet, watching eagles soar above the pine-topped mountains. At night, the pool and garden areas become magical - like some sort of fairytale palace, and the air and water here (there's a spring source a few minutes away) were so pure they almost tasted of oxygen.

I'm vegetarian - which I found difficult in Morocco - but the hotel made me a delicious salad and the breakfast (with fresh breads, croissants and rolls baked on the premises, pastries, organic cheese, fresh fruits and excellent coffee) was an absolute gourmet treat, a long table with breads, cheeses, meats, eggs, fresh fruit (huge strawberries!), apricots, kiwi fruit - a breakfast fit for a king.

After breakfast we took our coffee outside onto the sunny terrace overlooking the pool and gardens - absolute bliss. (This would be a good place to come for a summer holiday as it is cooler than Marrakech or Fez, because of its higher altitude). We came in March, springtime, and all the wild flowers were out. Lots of lovely walks and activities that the hotel can arrange, although we didn't do any of them as we just wanted to enjoy the views and the chance to relax for two days.

Apparently the hotel is under the same ownership as La Mamounia in Marrakech which explains the very high standards and stunning decor. It opened last spring.

I think this would be a lovely place for a long weekend break from London or Paris - there are direct flights to Fez from Stansted (London) which take just over three hrs, and we plan to go back in autumn/winter to see the scenery in a different season. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and although the hotel is near a ski resort, you don't really have to be a skier to enjoy Michlifen - with the spa, huge indoor and outdoor pools, gardens, walks, hikes, riding, excursions (to a local winery and La Pommeraie organic farm, or Fez Medina, if you can tear yourself away from the priceless peace and beautiful scenery!)...there is plenty to do - or just do nothing and soak up the sun and the views.

We will definitely come back, this is a very special place and we hope to go back in autumn.

Room Tip: Excellent for ski or non-ski, peaceful lots to do

We were 2 ladies from the Us visiting Ifrane .We decided to stop and have lunch at the hotel and check out the rooms.

Our driver left us next to the door,upon the entrance the security did not let us in >We asked kindly to talk to the manager .The request was denied and we were asked to leave.The hotel management should control their staff.One of us was hired at aschool nearby and
but will not go there anymore.It was a very unecessary and humiliating experience.

We stopped in this hotel in our trip to the mountains. We were staying for few days in Fes and decided to take the trip up. Checking on tripadvisor where to stop to rest and eat we came across this place and decided to check it out for future stays. Well, it was the perfect place to head to on the beautiful Ifrane hights. The scenery and atmosphere were outstanding. It is secluded and best for relaxing with amazing facilities including luxury spa. If you're spending days travelling around the mountains and old cities, this is the perfect heaven to rewind and get fit for the rest of your journey.
