Short February break. Hotel ,grounds and room beautiful. Just loved the personal touches.... A rose for all the ladies on valentines day at breakfast, champagne and smoked salmon breakfast treats, champagne and cocktail nights at 6pm with salsa dancing really set a buzz in the hotel and created a really friendly atmosphere. Indoor pool spotless and great for those cooler mornings. Couldn't fault the staff. Great bus service to Medina which was very safe and weren't hassled as expected. -amazing and cheap shopping . Not great amount to do in evenings except for bar and show by animation team but if you want to chill in nice surroundings insofar you. Food was good. Moroccan meal great but couldn't get booked in Italian which was a shame as buffet isn't my thing really. Tip ... Book restaurants when you check in. Also need to book spa, tennis courts and bus couple of days in advance. Will definitely return.More

Amazing stay

My other half brought me this holiday ad birthday present, what can I say, this hotel is amazing, the staff at hotel are amazing, every member staff from pools to restaurants to housekeeping was all very pleasant. They even surprised me ony birthday with card under door and when we arrive for dinner they decorated table and even gave us bottle champagne at table and at end they brought me cake out and sang me happy birthday. Couldn't fault the staff in the Italian restaurant at all superb. If I was go back to marrakech I would Defo consider coming back here.More


Great Winter Break

Having just returned from 12 days here, must say weather for February was good. Hotel setting is very nice, well kept gardens, amazing pool area. Animation team work hard, both around the pool and again at night, although much the same in the evening. Choice of restaurants, but themed are also buffet, the food was ok, salmon, champagne at breakfast, but evening time food was quite repetitive, but that was our opinion, we always found something we liked. 1 thing we would say to do is the tour of the Atlas Mountains, our guide for the day was Hassan and it was a fantastic day out. We would return to this hotel if we were ever to visit Marrakesh again.More

Girly Getaway

My friend and I travelled on a package to the Riu Tikida Palmeraie for a short break in February half term. Neither of us had been to Marrakech before so were unsure what to expect. We had a great time at he hotel and loved Marrakech. The small queue at check in was made enjoyable by the drink we were given and our bags were taken to our room. We went straight into lunch as our room was not ready. It was the usual buffet affair for this type of hotel but with a lot of local dishes (tagines) which we enjoyed sampling. We helped ourselves to a glass of wine and began to relax. After lunch we had a short walk in the grounds, which are beautiful, and did a little bird watching. House buntings tended to come down with sparrows to the tables to look for crumbs. Our room was lovely in the 4000 block on the ground floor with views of the gardens, plenty of wardrobe space and a free safe which you locked with your room key was a great idea (no codes to remember). We did not see a lot of the entertainment, we noticed the team about with children during the day, but looked in at night to see the football being shown. We spent our evenings in the bar drinking cocktails, if you ask the waiters to make you their best cocktail, they will make something that isn't a premixed drink - delicious! The bar is also one of the places you can get free wifi so it wasn't always the most sociable place. The hotel staff were really friendly, and have their set jokes, every time the two of us went for dinner the waiter asked "table for 3" in the hope that he would join us! We also walked around the block from the hotel to see what life was like outside the hotel, we walked for about an hour including popping into a little supermarket. Taxis would hoot us to see if we wanted a lift into town, but we got no other attention apart from a nod or a smile from locals. We loved the decor of the hotel and felt completely relaxed, the food was good with plenty of choice even for vegetarians. The hotel is outside the city which was lovely and we booked the hotel shuttle bus to go into the city. The bus does need to be booked and you need to get a ticket from reception. The bus took about 20 minutes each way. A few tips for those visiting Marrakech for the first time; Getting through the airport was straight forward with a lot less hassle from locals than I have experienced in other countries. You cannot take local currency in or out of the country so only change what you think you are going to need whilst you are there (2 mint teas in the Cafe de France cost 35Dh (about £2.50) and haggling in the souks is good fun. There is an ATM in the hotel so there is no ned to change money at eh airport. Once airside on your return Euros are the main currency so it worth taking a few if you have them lying around for a bottle of water or duty free. As two women we felt completely safe wandering around the city and most people were very friendly and helpful. We did not go into the city at night as we didn't feel the need. We enjoyed orange juice (4dh (30p))in the main square, but this was also the place where we got the most hassle. There is a bit of hassle from traders near the bus drop off, but a firm "no thank you" seemed to do the trick. There were more signs for tourists stating which way to the square than we had anticipated so we did not get lost! We kept covered up in the town but at the hotel anything goes (we still stayed covered as the weather was pretty chilly). All in all we had a fabulous time and I would recommend the trip to anyone, an easy first footstep into Africa!More

Just OK

If you want a cheap winter break then this will tick those boxes. We stayed for 5 nights and were glad we hadn't booked for longer. Our suite was large but lacking in many ways. Most of the blinds were broken, the decor bland and dark and the towels had seen better days. Tiled surfaces made the room feel cold and stark. Not really a suite just a huge room. At the time of booking I requested if the hotel could arrange airport transports, that was a no! Could they possibly try to get us a room with a nice view, no! OK, could I pre-book the Morrocan restaurant as it was my husbands birthday the night after we arrive, No!.....Really helpful!. The food in the evenings is OK for mass catering but disorganised and by the time you had picked up your choices from varying stations the food was cold. The lunch offering was awful, more or less the same everyday and all tasteless. Birds pooping everywhere and duck crap left all over the floor. As mentioned previously, the staff here are fantastic! The waiters, bar staff, entertainments team all go out of their way to make it an enjoyable experience. They work long hours but continuely smile and are openly welcoming. Unfortunately the entertainment itself is pretty dreadful, yes, they try hard and are lovely people but it really is bad, 2 nights of cringe was enough for us. The hotel is huge, but nicely laid out. The gardens are lovely and it was nice to see them growing their own herbs. At the time we stayed it was probably around 40% occupancy and was nice and quiet but would be my worst nightmare if the hotel had been full. I wouldn't return as it's just not my kinda place, I think the reviews on this site had me raise my expectations, keep them low and you won't be disappointed!More
