Best of the Best Hotels

Top - Africa

When you think of a hotel that checks all the boxes (outstanding service, comfy rooms, the works) it’s probably one of these winning spots.

The Travellers’ Choice Awards Best of the Best title celebrates the highest level of excellence in travel. It’s awarded to those who receive a high volume of above-and-beyond reviews and opinions from the Tripadvisor community over a 12-month period. Out of our 8 million listings, fewer than 1% achieve this milestone.


Sol Oasis Marrakech - All Inclusive is a fab spot to unwind and soak in Moroccan charm. Lounge all day at the resort's huge main pool or heated outdoor pool, while the splash park offers a fun kid zone. Take advantage of the well-equipped sports facilities, yoga room, and tennis court, or simply relax at the spa and steam room. Dine on a variety of local and international dishes at the on-site restaurant or sip a cocktail at the Café Maure. The resort's beautifully kept grounds and reddish sunsets complete the serene atmosphere.

    This resort is a hidden gem within the area. From start to finish, our stay was amazing, the room was clean, spacious and had everything you needed, including a safety deposit box which was free to use. There was little to no noise pollution for us at night (room 2509) which was nice. Most of the staff were very friendly and helpful, especially on the indoor and outdoor bars. The food was really good, and caters for most people, my only niggle would be a little more offerings at breakfast such as hash browns, fried eggs but that's just me being picky really. The cocktails were great, large array of options as part of the all inclusive menu, indoor cocktails were better than the outdoor but they took 3x longer to make. We tipped some of the bar staff as we loved their service and the tips made them go even further, we had drinks delivered to us around the pool to save us waiting in the que. The pool was great, big enough and didn't get too busy. Evening entertainment seemed very popular and the animation team are very passionate about getting everyone involved and they did a good job in doing so on several activities. Only criticism for us was the immediate bar closures at 11pm, a little later would have been nice but it wasn't an issue really. We booked through easyJet and most of it went smoothly, only issue we had was our shared transfer to the hotel seemed a bit unorganized and our bus was overbooked by easyJet meaning we didn't have a space, however it was sorted quick enough and we were put on another bus which had a few people on it (think it was someone else's private transfer). Most others who were on the same flight/hotel package seemed to go for the private transfer so I would recommend paying the extra as they were gone pretty much as soon as they told the rep who they were. The hotel shuttle bus is very useful, they warn you of pretend tour guides trying to scam you as you get off the bus at the stop (they say they work with the hotel) and these scammers are literally like flies to plop when the bus turns up. The excursions the hotel offers are good and well priced, we did a city tour and desert buggy ride and both were arranged well and fun. Highly recommend Sol Oasis. I've probably missed some other things which I enjoyed about this place. We will certainly be back again without a doubt.

    Absolutely first class hotel, the staff are excellent and the location has something for everyone. A 4 star hotel with exceptional facilities, we used British Airways Holidays and were not disappointed. Modern hotel with a traditional Moroccan feel. I will definitely recommend this hotel to my friends. The All Inclusive package is worth every penny, my whole family enjoyed this holiday we will definitely be returning.

The entertainment staff go above and beyond, they all work so hard and make sure you have fun in the activities you want to get involved in. Rooms are very clean and water bottles left in the room every day.
