Great hotel but had something stolen
Had a great time staff are friendly and food good for all inclusive. Entertainment staff try really hard, play bingo so funny and look out for the dancing around the pool. Always felt safe in hotel and around Marrakesh. But when we arrived they took our suitcase and they would be put in our room. Went to dinner and drinks came back and suitcases were outside our room in the corridor, had been left for hours for anyone to take, when we checked a pair of sandals had been stolen. Went to reception and told they will tell the manager come back Monday. Did that and no apology or explanation just happens. But when I spoke to Thomson rep said no it shouldn't happen and I had to put in a claim. We are two ladies traveling alone it un nerved me.More
First all inclusive holiday!
This was our first ever all inclusive holiday and it was brilliant! The hotel is very spacious the rooms are big with decent size balconies. The walls are thin which isn't the best if you have noisy neighbours. There are 3 restaurants the main buffet restaurant and also the Italian and morrocan themed restaurant, please note these are both buffet style restaurants but you have to book in advance and they were not open every evening (when we went in March, this may be different in peak season). I was impressed with the food however if you are reluctant to try different foods and stick to the "English" options (pizza and pasta) I would imagine it gets very repetitive. For vegetarians it is ok there are a few good options each night, there is usually always one fish dish but it is mainly all meat based. We were shocked at how sugary all the drinks are, mainly the fruit juices, but all the water used in the hotel is bottled water and all the salads and fruit is washed in bottle water. The gardens and pool area are beautiful. The pool was very cold (early March) but because it was so hot out it was nice and refreshing and a good way to cool down. We also enjoyed swimming in the indoor pool, one time we had the entire pool to ourselves. The bar staff and entertainment team are very friendly however the reception team weren't as helpful and welcoming. Our safe was not working and even after asking politely on 3 seperate occasions it was not fixed. We went with first choice and booked one excursion (quad biking) online before our trip (we actually saved money this way) and another excursion (souks and medina tour) when we were there. I would recommend both of these excursions, just be aware though that when booking excursions through Thomson/First Choice to the Atlas Mountains or ouzoud waterfalls it is a lot of time travelling on a coach we were told by our Rep that it would be 5 hours on a coach to and back from the waterfalls (we decided against this). Security at the hotel is excellent but don't let this out you off exploring the town centre. I would highly recommend this place but I would probably not go during peak season I can imagine it being very busy with a different atmosphere however I could be wrongMore
Perfection on a plate
This was our second visit to this hotel,and it was like going back to see the family.Every member of staff are so,so friendly,and cannot do enough for you.We were at this hotel last October,and could not wait to get back.I sent an e-mail asking if we could have a room near to the one last October,and we arrived to find that Nihade had given us the same room,which was amazing,thankyou so much Nihade.The food throuout is second to none,the choice is amazing.The manager,Mustafa,does an excellent job,as do all the staff,especially Jamal 1 and Jamal 2.The bar staff are all amazing,special mention to Achmed.The animation team are really brilliant,they work so hard and give so much pleasure,you can see they really enjoy what they do.In a nutshell,we cannot wait to go back again.More
Unexpectedly Happy Stay
Firstly may I just say the Hotel was excellent for a short stay just outside the centre of Marrakech, We used the free Shuttle bus twice while we were there, the first experience was not great, pestered by people from start to finish and we walked to the right of the market when we arrived. Two people on bikes seemed to be intent on pushing us towards allies where we were met by someone else who wanted to take us to the leather market, man on bike disappeared and the other took over, these people don't take no for an answer and persisted in walking down little streets as we were going deeper in to the town we got a little nervous to say the least, eventually another man we met opened a door to what can only be described as a rag and bone yard. At this point I had to forcibly tell the man we were going back although he did persist he wanted to take us to another place. I said no and turned around and he followed us for a bit but after a stronger refusal ( if you know what I mean ) he left us to alone. It took about an hour to find our way out as the locals are intent at pointing you to the square in different directions. Very naive of us I know but it's worth noting for this review, when we did get back to the square we decided to go in to the market via the left and it was a completely different vibe, the market itself had wonderful smells, and the traders were persistent but not rude, you will have to say no about a 1000 times but just for the experience it's worth it. Our second visit was a much more pleasant experience. When we got off the bus we crossed the road towards the temple, there's a great park to walk through and there's a lot more of the real experience of the city, shops, cafe's and no pressure, check out the artisan area all the products are priced but you can haggle if that's your thing.Don't be put off just follow your instinct, if it doesn't feel right move out of the area. Anyway back to the hotel, the reception staff are very professional and you can change your money on arrival. you get 11 for a quid you also get free wifi and use of the safe. You get towell cards on arrival which you collect at the end of the holiday and return, although they did appear a little lax in this area, you can book taxi's which cost about 150 dir to almost anywhere in the city.Securty, everyone is checked when they've been out of the hotel, although it's not intrusive. There is a Big Supermarket just up the road, if you remember Kwiksave you'll know what to expect, prices are very reasonable just follow the road right and you'll find it on the opposite side of the road on the left after about 10 minutes walk Pool is huge, again the staff around it are very helpful and the sunbeds are plentiful, the pool bars are open from 10 am to 18 pm they'll serve you nearly every drink you can name, breakfast is in the main area and lunch is served in the bar restaurant, I couldn't fault the food and being a veggie I found it better than acceptable. Rooms are big and changed and cleaned daily, overall a great short break and the I will probably go back. These are our oppinions and if they differ from anyone elses we just have different expectations, would i recommend to friends.... Yes, All the best to everyone we met and have a good life.
