Really clean and beautifully kept hotel. All staff very friendly and helpful and entertainment staff great at trying to involve everyone but not too pushy. The size of the hotel and gardens is impressive and gives the place a tranquil feel to it. The food was great, lots of variety and I would recommend the Italian and Moroccan restaurants. The rooms are spacious but the decor is slightly tired and lacked a kettle. Overall however we had a fantastic holiday and would definitely return More
5 years after
We were exhausted from work so wanted a cheap sun holiday which incidentally ticked another box for us.It was a last minute holiday deal and cost-as far as I remember- the same 5 years ago.It is a first going back to the same hotel but it’s TA ratings were the best of the available all inclusive deals. The staff have been excellent,very friendly and helpful.The hotel,pool area and gardens are immaculate.The rooms are a bit tired but large so my adult daughter was able to have a put up bed without being anyway crowded. The big downside and deterioration from 5 years ago has been the food which lacks imagination or choice.Breakfast lacks a individual omelette making stand but otherwise is ok. Lunch again no variety or inspiration from Morocco.The main restaurant is exactly the same as lunch- same old,same old-the restaurant manager needs a trip on a cruise ship to see how they do it! The speciality Moroccan is good but please,please change the menu every night as it is nice but exactly the same. I suppose you get what you pay for and overall I think you do here but with some tweaks could be a lot better.More
Stayed with my partner for 7 nights. We were met off the coach with mocktails while we waited to check in. The hotel is very nice, is more like a complex of apartments built around the gardens and only 2 stories. Our room was huge with a balcony looking over the tennis courts, 1 minute walk to the pool. The Entertainment team were great and very good at getting people involved without being pushy. The food was very good, especially the lunch menu with so much fresh salad and seafood. (You can pour your own beer!) The bar staff were great and the drinks were quality. Moroccon wine was good and the Casablanca Flag special beer was good. We spent a few days around the pool which is lovely, and it's easy enough to get into town on the free shuttle bus. All in all a great hotel, would go back.More

Second holiday / Winter week break, very relaxing.....will be going back again at some point.
This is a very clean and beautifully kept Hotel. I've stayed at a number of Riu hotels, and they are generally very very good, but this is the best kept one I've stayed at. All the staff (and I mean ALL the staff) were friendly and welcoming. We had the most contact with the Bar staff and dining staff who could not do enough for us. The Bar staff also were pretty good at knowing what drinks I was going to order after only a few days, so thats a nice feeling that they pay attention to you. We only went for a week of relaxation, sun and to make the most of the all inclusive benefits, and decided not to book any excursions or to leave the complex. A number of other couples and families did venture out, and I didn't hear of any problems (I,e none of the negative things I'd heard about that area or Marrakech). Compared to some of the Riu's in the Canary Islands for example, the breakfast and evening meals seemed a little more limited (I'm guessing this is a regional thing??). We always found something nice to eat though. But in the seven day stay, there was only Bacon available twice for breakfast. However, there was plenty of pastries and pan-cakes etc. The hotel has both an Italian and Moroccan speciality restaurant, which you can book to eat at. We tried both and preferred the Italian. Both are buffet style restaurants, which for me is not a problem, but I do sometimes hear other guests moaning and getting bent out of shape that they are not à la carte..hint "it's an all inclusive hotel, get a grip" The animation team are very energetic and fun people, with quite a few activities going on throughout the day. They also do the evening entertainment, which I have to say was maybe not the best, but they do try and to say what an excellent job they do in the day I think they can be forgiven. Our room was in the '5000' block and didn't have a view, other than than another block of rooms. The room itself was very large, clean, with two wardrobes and a number of surfaces. There is a safe which is free of charge. Also a TV, ceiling fan, fridge, chair and of course air-con. Separate WC and washroom. The washroom has a sink, bath with shower, large mirror and a hairdryer with shaving socket outlet. Two single beds pushed together, which was a little disappointing, and the mattresses were ok. I'm a fussy sleeper and I managed to have good nights, though my girlfriend did struggle some nights. There are four bars, two by the pool, a lobby bar and one in the entertainment area. The lobby area is very nice and also there is plenty of seating out in the main corridor area near the lobby. The pool is quite large. We managed to get a sun loungers with no problems, but I'm not sure if there is more competition for them in peak season, as our stay was in November. The hotel also has some beautiful kept gardens and pools, a gym and also a Spa where you can pay to have massages and various treatments. Things that weren't so good As I've mentioned, bacon only being available 2 our of the 7 days we were there. Yes..I like bacon!!! We had a problem with the key-cards for the hotel room door. I think I had to go to reception 6 times in total to get one or both of the key-cards re-coded. I was told that it was my mobile phone that was causing the cards to become de-magentised. Well, I know for sure that on three occasions, the key-card had not been any where near my mobile phone. While at reception booking the Italian restaurant, I over heard a fellow guest asking to have her key-card re-coded (for the 7th time in 11 days), and then saw her speaking to the manager about it. The outdoor pool is not heated.. and even though the weather was great in November, temperatures between 25 and 32 deg C, the pool was COLD!!! However there is an indoor pool, but this is somewhat smaller.More
