Good overall but a few issues
This is a very large hotel and it feels like it. The rooms are comfortable but basic with cheap toiletries and no tea/coffee making facilities. Although the website says the hotel has wi-fi, this is only available in the public areas and not the rooms and, in addition, the speeds are very slow. Although there is a dress code for the restaurants in the evenings , it is not enforced and people were eating in shorts and tee shirts at dinner. This is very disappointing. The alcohol served is of local manufacture in the main and only a basic selection is offered, eg no liqueurs etc and what is available tends to be quite weak. Now for the positives. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food, although bland, is of good quality and a good selection is offered although some things are notably absent. There is only a cheeseboard at dinner once a week.There are shows put on in the evening for those who enjoy them. Excellent spa but the indoor pool tended to be mobbed with children as the outdoor pool was freezing cold. We were there on a golf tour and, for this purpose, it was very good.More

'JEWEL IN THE CROWN! '
Stayed here for a short break. Absolutely delighted with everything. From the management to the house keeping all were very helpful. Tucked away but not to far from the medina, free shuttle bus provided regularly through out the day. Spa facilities, indoor and outdoor pool. The food was amazing, plenty of varieties to choose from. The grounds, well maintained. You have everything hence no reason to step out from the resort!. Overall loved it, definitely recharged and relaxed. I would highly recommend this resort. Can't wait to visit again. More
Fabulous break away
Great reception on arrival and a fairly slick operation getting you to your room and ensuring you get something to eat in the restaurant after your travels. I have been to this hotel before so knew what to expect and I guess, the mere fact I went again, is testament to how nice the place is. Because it's All inclusive you know what you're getting, the food is really nice considering how much they have to produce! Always fresh and beautifully presented! Drinks are ok but you miss your premium brands here. Taking the free hotel bus to the Medina is a MUST... Even if you go on the 2.30 bus and one back at 5.15.... Just to see it and experience it... I have quite a collection of the colourful ceramics they produce and are pretty reasonably priced after a good old haggle! For an organised, relaxing break where you can just Be... Give it a go! I'd definitely go back again.More

A wonderfully relazing week in beautiful Marrakesh sunshine.
Just arrived home from a very pleasant (bargain last minute) week in Marrakesh with lovely weather. Not much to fault about this resort. We really enjoyed a relaxing week there. Here's my run down. Rooms: Nice and spacious. Spotlessly clean. Fixtures a little dated but appeared well maintained. Only criticism for us was we were in a corner room on the ground floor which didn't have a view and was a bit dark. We really only slept in there so no real issues with that but some of the rooms had nice views of the lush gardens or pool so that would have been nice - but for what we paid we didn't mind. Bathroom is fine had a decent shower - toiletries aren't up to much so bring your own shampoo / conditioner / shower gel. Gardens: The setting of the hotel is gorgeous! Palm trees, rose bushes of all colours, cacti and more are in abundance - it is lovely to walk around and the smell of the flowers are beautiful. Also each morning our alarm was the birds tweeting and we fell asleep to a frog chorus - delightful! Food Depends what you like but we love a salad when it's hot and these were in big supply. Plenty of variety to mix things up but if you're a burger, pasta, chips and pizza fan then you are also well catered for. Plenty of Tagines (mixed varieties), steak, chicken, turkey, etc. Nice fruit platters, desserts etc. There are themed nights (oriental, Mexican, Italian) but we missed these as we went to the themed restaurants. The Moroccan Restaurant is really pretty good - great mix of food (sheep brain, pastillas, etc) and nice atmosphere. We also did the Italian but didn't think as much of that (bit stogy) although it made a change from the main buffet. Overall decent food but not amazing. Have had better at other all inclusives. This is a decent sized resort and often you can be waiting for a refill of dishes but turnaround generally seemed pretty fast. Main issues are avoiding tripping over kids running around in front of you but the that's not the fault of the hotel. Pool: Pool is lovely. Pretty big and seemed the right size for the amount of people. Lots of comfy loungers and spaces for lying around (nice comfy mats under canopies - ideal if you've got kids to keep out of the sun). Most loungers have an umbrella too. There are several raised levels and great little nooks to commandeer. Staff: Generally very attentive. The bar staff get to know your order pretty quick and the waiting staff are on hand to take away plates, serve drinks at meal times and if you offer a few dirhams you'll certainly be rewarded with better service. The animation team are good fun. Watched them with the kids and they were great. They aren't too pushy - they'll ask if you want you get involved but a refusal once and you'll be left alone apart from the daily pool rounds to say hello and ask how you are. They do shows each evening at 9.30pm. We weren't holding out for much after seeing our first 'legends show' (what connection Albert Einstein has with the Prodigy or Ferrari sports cars with Spanish tango dancing or better still a dance with a bottle of Coca Cola has we've no idea) but the shows did get better - mainly dancing shows but they are pretty decent. The cabaret comedy and couple shows did make us laugh a lot. Location: If there is a negative this is probably one. We were there for the relaxing, nothing else, as we've visited Marrakesh before but there is nothing around the hotel so if you do want to go anywhere you need the shuttle bus (free and throughout the day - last time back at 8pm) or a taxi (around 100dirhams or 150d at night - agree a price depending on taxi or make sure they put the meter on). It is worth getting out because Marrakesh is such a great city. We love Jamaa El Fna for the buzziness - it is pretty full-on gone sunset. The souks sell lots of the same stuff as do the food stalls on the Square. We ate at stall number 1 (because it was packed and they didn't hassle us) you can get bored by the time you get to stall #127 of the 'friendly' banter from the guys on the store. Essentially the main difference is; most stalls sell Tagines, grilled meats and merguez sausage and if they don't do that then it is sheep brains / heads. On the outer skirts we had snail soup - not what you'd call yummy (imagine slimy snails in a muddy water that tastes surprisingly of mud). But whilst is Marrakesh!!!! Weather: Great! 6 days of lovely sunshine and an ideal heat. Not hot and sticky but enough for a decent tan. Cooler on the evenings but not cold. Final day cloudy but we were in our way home so no probs. Small negative only is this: You are given a beach towel card on arrival to swap for a towel when you want it by the pool. We did this on the next morning we'd arrived. What we hadn't realised was that you're supposed to keep the towel with you until the following day and swap it for a fresh one. We didn't leave the pool until 6pm (towel giver outer is gone by 5pm) so a cleaner (maybe) told us to put it in the laundry basket - my husband questioned him about the card and he said we needed to get it from reception. Unfortunately at reception they wanted to charge us 300d each (almost Â£25) to replace the card! Luckily the reception staff believed us because we'd have been a bit miffed to pay Â£50 for 2 second hand yellow towels! We had a late checkout which cost us 400d - would have been nice if that wasn't the case but we weren't getting picked up until 5pm but was good to keep the room for showering etc. Overall a very positive experience for our second time in Marrakesh! Would recommend the hotel for a lazy break (maybe not during the main school holidays though) and could have easily stayed for 10 days instead of 7 (if only).More
