We visited this hotel in November, for my 21st birthday. As per usual, there were good points and bad points. room - we paid for a junior suite, wasn't much more expensive and was definitely worth it. cleaned every day, fresh towels whenever we needed, towel dressing gowns provided, shampoo/soap provided, towels shaped into swans and hearts every day which was nice, even had a huge swan made out of our blanket on my birthday. had a bath, shower over the bath and a seperate shower wet room type, was lovely. toilet seperate from bath/showers too. bad things about the room were that the bed was so uncomfortable, you only get two pillows and one extra in the cupboard, and they're all pretty flat. resorted to using the cushions off of our sofa. a hell of alot of ants, but the rooms are all located in the gardens, so not much you can do about that. my birthday - recieved a letter through the door early in the morning wishing me a happy birthday and saying that we had a special table for dinner, arrived and were treated amazingly, bottle of champagne on ice, cute little chocolate cake with candle, got sang happy birthday to (rather embarassedð) was tables set up for anniversaries i'm guessing, as hey had rose petals and candles on too, very willing to help people celebrate! swimming pool - absolutely BEAUTIFUL. but absolutely FREEZING. managed to get a foot in and that was all, a couple of guys jumped straight in and regret was the only look on their face. plenty of sunbeds, yes the left side of the pool has the sun all day and that's where people were reserving early in the morning, but staff had no problem at all with anyone moving sunbeds around anywhere else, pool bar was pretty good - not many different cocktails, and beer/cocktails/soft drinks were all served in little plastic cups which meant having to risk getting 2/3 at a time (ALOT of bugs), or having to make multiple trips up to the bar(annoying when there's only one bar and it's in the centre at the back, trekkage). indoor pool was quite busy during our stay, because the weather was poor on multiple days, but when we decided to brave it and go in no matter how busy it was, there was nobody in the pool! this was about 1/1:30pm ;) food - plenty of different choices, i'm quite a fussy eater so really only stuck to pasta and pizza (healthy choices, obviously) boyfriend tried a few moroccan dishes, said these were tasty, the one time i did try a moroccan dish it was really nice but none of the others really appealed to me. alot of fishy meals, not so good for me! pasta was best when dinner had just started (half 6 in the evening) obviously, as it was fresh, but plenty of different pizzas served aswell. breakfast was pretty good, only had bacon 2 days though which was disappointing, must of been turkey bacon, was very tasty! any type of egg you want, boiled eggs cooked differently, 6 minute egg, 8 minute egg etc. plenty of bread, rolls and pastries which was lovely. lunch - lunch was pretty much a smaller verson of what they serve for dinner, but also had panini's, sandwiches etc. different soup served daily. snacks were provided between lunch and dinner, basically burgers and chips and pasta. location - there's nothing to do here. absolutely nothing. medina is a bus journey away which we didn't decide to take as i decided i had brought the wrong clothes - was wanting a week of sunbathing but the weather disagreed. the bus service is free though which is quite good. the rooms are all quite a walk away from anything, we were close to the pool but that was all. there were many rooms behind out block which weren't near anything! staff - staff were all lovely and welcoming, the bar staff were a little grumpy and only really conversed with people who were properly drinking or tipping, we only had a few drinks as we didn't really like much - the vodka was horrible ð© (strawberry daiquiri was the one, but after a while you get abit sick of the same thing haha. boyfriend said beer tasted differently everywhere, nicest in the dining room) the entertainment crew were always chatty and one of the girls wanted to buy a hat off my boyfriend, always came by for a chat, even when they were having their dinner. they don't really harrass you to take part in anything, they asked a few times obviously, but they understand when you just want to chill by the pool. all in all it was a pretty relaxing holiday, i can only review what we did, there is the spa, which i understand isn't ran by the hotel? but we didn't go there, there's a small gym, a moroccan restaurant and an italian, which you have to reserve tables for - got told it's pretty much the same as what's in the main hall though. grounds are stunning, pool is lively when the weather's warm enough, there's a small gift shop in reception where you can buy crisps/cans of soft drink, cigarettes(25-35dhr i believe) and little souvenirs. don't come here if you're expecting a busy busy alcohol fuelled trip, it's more relaxed and calm. i can imagine in peak times it would be abit more fun here, but i suppose it depends on what you feel like doing yourself aswell. sorry it was a long one!

both a city and relaxing break
This hotel has the advantage of you being able to enjoy the chaos of Marrakesh city with a relaxing break at a good clean comfortable hotel. A courtesy bus is available free of charge to take you direct to the centre which is a very good prompt service. Food for all inclusive package was very good (suprisingly) and excellent service from all employees. The animation team is always a personal preference and not my favourite amenity but other guests seem to enjoy the banter I felt it very 1970's butlins with loud music booming for them to do a dance routine just before they go to lunch not my cup of tea, but that's my only real criticism and as I say down to individuals to whether they enjoy this type of entertainments. Must add the wi-if is absolutely fantastic throughout our stay.More
Excellent for culture and relaxing
Hotel is excellent, staff are fabulous, spa is worth a visit, free shuttle bus to the medina and souks, food is great for an all inclusive, make sure you book to go to the Italian and morrocan restaurants too. The bars are well stocked and pleasant, pool area is large with plenty of beds, indoor pool is warm if the temperature dips. The only negative I have is the beds are rock hard which gave me a bad back, but I find this in a lot of hotels. If you go into the market, we found if you politely said no thanks we were left alone.. Had a great experience bartering and shopping.More
Wonderful holiday, would 100% recommend
We stayed for 1 week in September, the weather was lovely and hot around this time. There are lots of comments about the wasps around the pool, however that was only if you left cocktails glasses around you for a long time in the sunshine. The staff were extremely helpful and created a lovely atmosphere. It is best to get up early and put the towels out on the way to breakfast. The Moroccan restaurant on site is lovely and we visited twice, I would recommend going to the earlier sitting as you will have more chance for fresher and nicer food. The buffet is the same each day, with a few themes but roughly the same food, not a problem but some people complained about that. The hotel rooms were well looked after and immaculate and the entertainment was fantastic. Had the most wonderful relaxing time, and I would think if you can it would be best to go during the school term time, as it was very quiet and relaxing with no children running around.More
Nice Hotel, strange spa experience
had a nice stay for the price we paid I couldn't really fault it. the room was fairly clean and spacious, some of the finishing was a little rough round the edges, dirty head prints on the headboard which were quite noticeable. The pool area was great lots of different seating and beds. Liked the fact you also got clean towels to use round the pool via reception. The pool was absolutely freezing!!! Didn't exactly ruin the holiday and I did use the indoor pool if I fancied a dip. Food was pretty good as far as all inclusive goes different themed nights like Italian and Mexican. There is a Moroccon and Italian restaurant which you can book to go in. The food wasn't anything to right home about but there was enough variety to stop it getting samey and was the usual all inclusive grub. Drinks also what u expect from all inclusive pretty basic. Staff were a credit to the hotel really pleasant and welcoming. The evening entertainment wasn't my cup of tea watching out of sync people dancing but the other guests seemed to enjoy it. Used the spa on one day for a facial and a 25 min massage and as an avid spa goer at home I was bitterly disappointed and a little embarrassed altho it's providing all that listen to the tale a good giggle. The member of staff doing my treatment did nothing to help cover my modesty whilst getting changed and moving around on the bed so I felt very exposed. As a female never in my life in a full body massage have I had my chest massaged and I didn't find the experience pleasant or relaxing!. Afterwards I wasn't given any privacy to get changed. Maybe this is the norm in Morocco and I'm being prudish? Booked a discover Marrakesh tour via Thomson rep in the hotel which wasnt worth the money. first half of the tour was great quite cultured and informational and then went for a traditional Morrocon lunch. Afternoon was a con walking around the markets with a trip to a traditional "chemist" felt like we were in a cattle market and was a proper swizz to try and sell potions and cures to 30 gullible tourist's absolutely dreadful I was close to walking out. Overall I'm being quite picky we enjoyed our weeks stay in the hotel and would recommend as we had a nice relaxing time away. More
