Cannot wait to go back!!!!
4star hotel with 5star traits. Absolutely amazing and excellent entertainment!! The bar and main restaurant have a lot of variety and the staff are so helpful! Very clean and modern! It is quite far from the souks but taxis are so cheap that it doesn't matter. Weather was amazing. Would definitely return.More

4 STAR HOTEL with 5 STAR STAFF
our first trip to Morocco and we arrived at almost midnight, very efficient couriers got us to the coach with the minimum of fuss . the drive through Marrakesh was an adventure on its own such a busy city at a very late hour with lots of cars buses and hundreds of mopeds with 2 ,3, and 4 people on board. there were people everywhere rushing through the streets, but there were also people sat in groups in the dirt at the sides of the road . there were what looked like one room shops with double wooden doors shedding light out onto a few people sat around outside (i'd still like to know what they were doing ) . as we drove further out of the city there were less people and less light but still in darkness you could make out people(fewer now, perhaps only in 2s or 3s) sat at the side of the road . and so after about 25 minutes we arrived at the security barriers and guard that stood at the entrance to our Hotel , first impressions were that it was quite an impressive entrance and as we were ushered into reception the opulence continued .we were told the kitchen staff had stayed on to give us a meal so some went straight to the dining room whilst others checked in quickly. as i am disabled,( in so much as my legs don't work very well ) i was hoping that the room wasn't very far ....oh dear... the porter had to keep stopping as i could not keep up, (it had been a long day ) we eventually got to our rooms (1 for my partner and i and 1 for the 2 sixteen year olds ) probably about a quarter of a mile from the reception area and the last 50 mtrs up steps and along a couple of corridors . our rooms were fine not too small but not massively spacious either. the next morning after a hearty breakfast with lots of choice we attended the welcome meeting ,i mentioned (when asked how our accommodation was) that the distance to our room that even though almost level was quite difficult for me , with in an hour we were asked to meet one of the duty managers who offered another room with walk in shower and on the ground floor much nearer to both reception, main pool and restaurant plus help to move . ( even provision of a golf cart and driver) during our week of relaxation we only went on one excursion(of which there were many) which was the half day quad biking , on which i would advise any one taking this trip to wear their older clothes as i arrived back filthy and covered in very fine dust everywhere .as much as i enjoyed the day driving quad bikes and being given a taste of traditional Moroccan hospitality, i really enjoyed my shower that afternoon . the pool is the biggest i have seen anywhere like a huge U shape ,entrances were plenty including a long sloping side with railings at each end to assist entrance . there were lots of sunbeds and pool attendants to help you get comfortable and in some cases even covered areas, bars at both the middle and at one side of the pool with all the drinks you could want plus the pool restaurant where most people had lunch and of course snacks all day long. there are two themed restaurants for which you must book one is Italian (same room as daytime pool restaurant) and the other Moroccan (separate place), we tried both on different evenings and enjoyed the Moroccan best . there is such a selection available at the main restaurant including pastas ,pizza, Parmesan and sauces .fillet steak was even at one of the hot food areas at least twice during our short stay .other parts of the restaurant offered Spanish dishes some days ,Moroccan or Chinese dishes others, also a vast array of hot foods something for everyone in fact, oh and not forgetting the large selection of salad choice. the boys spent most of their time using the gym ,playing football,playing water polo and generally joining in with the animation team and making lots of friends as well as sunbathing of course. i would have liked to go to the old town and into the souks but was told by other guests that both during the day and at night it was extremely busy , mopeds mixed with lots of little streets and many hands trying to get your attentions as i am unsteady on my feet i decided not to go . i am told that unofficially there are Taxis just outside the main gate of the hotel that will take you to any place or shop you wish to go to and wait for you to bring you back without any fear of being hassled or jostled to much . our stay was made so much more comfortable by the complete and all encompassing attention given to us by all the staff who were ever watchfull to make sure that we had everything we wanted and constantly had a smile on their faces. our trip back to the airport was 8.30 in the evening and so we extended the occupancy of our room which cost maybe Â£30 and needed a little notice. once again i really enjoyed our journey through Marrakesh (high in the coach ) this time in early evening . Late July temperature during our stay reached 46 degrees and had been up to 56 the previous week we were told, so make sure you pack plenty of high factor sun cream for this great relaxing holiday.More

Don't listen to the negative reviews!
Having recently returned from this hotel i can honestly say that some of the negative reviews are totally unfounded. We booked this holiday through Thomson. One of the hotel reps Sandra couldn't do more for the guests if she tried. Hotel is extremely clean and the food was plentiful and varied. If you choose an all inclusive hotel, you should not expect table service as some guests imply. You always got served very quickly at the bars also. The staff are a credit to this hotel, they were always friendly. My daughter was poorly one day and one of the waiters could not have done more to help us. The rooms were cleaned everyday and water was provided. The hotel is a little distance from the main Jamal al Finaa square, but a free shuttle service was provided by the hotel throughout the day. The main square is noisy, busy and full of life but if you choose to visit Marrakesh- this is what it's all about! If you want calm, serene and quiet then this isn't the holiday destination for you! We found the experience magical and captivating and was a highlight of our holiday. Honestly, visit with an open mind, and remember this is Marrakesh and not a luxury European city. Overall we had a wonderful holiday and would definitely return.More

Got back early hours Tuesday morning and haven't stopped wishing I was back at the hotel since! One of the most relaxing enjoyable holidays I have been on in a long time. We arrived late Friday evening and were greeted by cocktails and the restaurant was left open for us to have dinner. Room - The room is spacious and well equip with everything you need. Very clean room, and maid leaves 2 x new bottle of fresh water everyday which is very handy. The balcony is big and lovely to sit out on in the evenings. Restaurant - If you are adventurous with food then you will love the food! I'm always quite fussy, but did try a lot of new foods I didn't think I would enjoy and actually found they were quite nice. They have a few different themed nights in the restaurant; Spanish, Moroccan, but it's still similar stuff on offer. We went to the Italian one night, but again it's not much different. Pool - The pool is amazing, so big and amazing. We spent the majority of our days in and out of the pool. The staff offer lots of activities in and around the pool including water volleyball, Aqua gym, Aqua Zumba and water polo. If you want to have first dibs on beds you do need to be up early to put your towels down to make sure you get the ones you want. For us this wasn't too much of an issue, as I would set an alarm for 6:30, put the towels out and then go back to bed! Animation Team - Such hard working people who can't do enough for you! They are always happy and trying to get people involved in different activities. We didn't do many activities but after a while felt bad for always saying no, so we did darts and an Arabic class! The animation team work all day every day and have lots of energy all the time! They are all very talented dancers and put on shows in the evening! Redwan and Fizer in particular were really nice and friendly and always stopped and spoke to us! Bar staff - My favourite people from the whole holiday! Smiling all the time and listening to what you have to say! They remember your drinks at all times and sometimes they end up just brining your drinks to the table for you! They honestly can't do enough for you! I suggest you try the Anime Special, incredible drink! Thank you Anime! A few names that really made my trip worthwhile were Anime, Khalid, and Mbarak! Always remembering us when we came over and would have a little catch up! Miss them!! Only downfall, there are a lot of wasps around the bar, but they didn't cause any harm to me whilst I was up there. If anything I felt more sorry for the bar staff! Only down fall about the holiday was the wifi wasn't very good - not a problem really as we were on holiday and it's nice to have a break from technology! Would more than happily book a flight back to Marrakech to this hotel tomorrow! More
Typical Riu - Fantastic
Just back from two weeks, cant fault the usual Riu standard. We booked direct with them and were not disappointed. The pool is great, although it was not the cleanest I dont know how they could have kept it cleaner as there were sand storms a number of days in a row. Restaurants great, loved all three, the young guys in the Italian were so friendly, was sad to say goodbye. Even dived off to get me a cup of Camomile tea for my wife as she was in bed feeling poorly. Breakfast great - sausages, bacon and egg, followed by croissants or doughnuts - my kind of heaven. Bar staff made me feel like I was their number one customer - a small tip now and again goes a long long way, although nobody ever came looking for one. The grounds are very pleasant, with ponds full of fish and terrapins, and the resident ducks who came to visit our balcony on a daily basis. Entertainment staff are better than many other places I've visited, although they need to talk a little slower when on stage as its difficult to make them out. On the whole they was fun to watch and made the evening fly by. Bit out in the sticks, although they have a free courtesy bus running through the day to Marrakech. There are a couple of supermarkets nearby (if you want any extra snacks - although food was available all day and into the evening). Don't let Thomsons bully you into a package deal - its far more fun booking direct and getting out there on your own. Also small criticism - the wifi is a bit rubbish, but get the right times and its fine. Wouldn't hesitate in returning next year, just wish I could go again this oneMore
