Excellent holiday in a lovely hotel!
I have just returned from a 10 day stay at this resort with my boyfriend and cant really fault it. The staff were brilliant, the pool was huge and very clean, there was plenty of sunbeds, if you wanted a particular one then you had to get up between 8and 8.30am however there was always sunbeds available if you wanted a lay in. The food was great, a lot of choice and always show cooking, sometimes there was themed nights. The entertainment was good but it would have been better if it lasted longer than 1 hour. The rooms were very clean and modern. The wifi wasnt great but we didnt go away to spend our time on the internet. I would highly recommend this hotel and would definately return. The only one thing i can moan about was the que through security when we arrived but i believe this isnt standard.More

Great hotel... Missing a few final touches
Stayed at Riu fri 25 sept to 2nd Oct as a package with Thomson with my wife & 1year old. (Weather was high 20's with plenty of sunshine expect for the odd shower) Breakdown of the week: Arrival: 7:30pm immigration: nightmare; 2hour wait! Brace yourself if more than one flight (ie.6) arrive at the same time Transfer: relative quick 25min Hotel arrival: drink on arrival and food still served Tip: let the hotel know prior (email/phone) if you wanted a particular room. Hotel: we travelled with a one year old! Very accommodating. Facilities were excellent, nice reception, lobby bar, children play area. Lovely gardens and spacious Wifi - as you would have read; slow connection, morning and late evenings are best Pool - huge with sun beds around the parameter. Tip: if you want a specific spot for a sun bed then 7:30 is ideal time. Else you'll find one around 9ish on route to breakfast End of Sept is off peak so stupid o'clock wasn't required. Tip: use the indoor pool, they have sun beds as well, Spa: is okay, staff a bit useless, Thomson offer a deal but have one in the old town like heritage spa was excellent. Room: usual amenities, worth taking a kettle or asking for one if required Cot: excellent! We took our own, wasn't required. TV: Sky & bbc news. Main bar showed big football and rugby matches Condition of room were good, bit dark but it's how they are designed. Shower in the bath with constant hot water. Staff: highlight of hotel, very friendly and always happy. Kept our little one always smiling and always accommodating. Food: average, however it was Eid and so food wasn't at a good standard until Wednesday. There was, tagine chips, pasta & pizza daily (dinner & lunch) Rest of the time it was themed but it can feel repetitive. Tip: Worth booking both Italian and Moroccan restaurant, not because of the variety or table service because you don't get either. More for a change of scenery. Drinks: beer is okay, drinkable, spirits aren't premium so you may miss your fav whisky/vodka though it's drinkable. Cocktails are okay, tip the bar men and they will look after you. Excursions: we never did any, Thomson offer some but you could probably get them cheaper outside the hotel. Riu offer a free bus service to the souks which was worth it. 20min to the town. Overall - lovely hotel & staff and has all the amenities for a 4* however the food was average and with a few tweaks could be even better. Tip: if you want a late checkout (for a charge) do this immediately when you arrive.More
An OK visit
It was difficult to rate this hotel because the staff were really nice but but our issues went beyond the service. When we arrived we needed tgo freshen up but couldn't (for hours) as there was a power failure in our rooms. We were told by the staff who had brought our bags to go in and open the curtains - but it was pitch black! There was a stry kitten on the bed of one of rooms who proved difficult to extract and the air conditioning fans didnt work. Also the rooms couldnt get cool because there was no electricity to chill them down. The bath / shower in my room leaked terribly and soaked the tiled floor when it was used. I had asssumed that the damp smell was the not switched on air con but actually it was the regular leaking from the bath. The sink smelt pretty bad too. The drinks are very watered down and we wondered whether the cocktails had any alcohol in them at all (and were different every time despite ordering the same one. There is no food at all after 9pm so if you get back late you will be hungry. Having said this the service was lovely, the food good and there were free (but you had to book) shuttle buses to and from the medina, the only shame was that the last one back was at 8:00. It was well priced though and good for a cheap weekend away.More

We had a later arrival and a ridiculously long wait for anyone to get through security.....so much so that people cheered because they allowed one person through in 20 minutes. It was the only blight of the trip though. Arrival was warm, cocktails were ready and staff were friendly and smiling even though it was past 1am by the time we arrived. Lovely room, Shower was good which is always a bonus in holiday hotels. Take a travel kettle as they don't offer the facility. Animation team were superb, they were on the go all the time but not in your face, they mingled with guests, just chatting and having a bit of fun, but left you alone if they knew you weren't interested. Pool was chilly but great when the sun is at its best. I've seen some mention about putting towels out, we never got up early to especially put our towels out and not many others did either, but if you like a spot, why not put a towel there, there's plenty of seats, loungers and sofas to sit on. Food was good, variety and flavours to suit all tastes, fresh fruit a constant as was salad, soups breads and chips. Huge breakfast variety too. Our bed was firm, the room was dark and quiet. Bar drinks were OK for local produce, and bar staff ensure your glass is rarely empty for long. We are in the habit of tipping for services but the staff do not expect it, so don't feel bad if you're on a budget and can't do it. Maid services were good, gardens exceptional, everyone works hard at this hotel and it's a definite do again for us if we want a week chilling in the sunshine.More

Perfect for a chilled holiday
I visited this hotel at the beginning of September as a party of two women. Upon arrival we were very optimistic due to some very negative reviews we had previously read on here... We were very wrong. The hotel and staff exceeded our expectations from start to finish! Positives: - greeted with cocktails upon arrival and restaurant left open for us to eat, even though very late - beautiful well kept gardens -fairly modern hotel rooms -good choice of food and themed nights (Mexican night was my favourite) - beautiful weather all week -friendly and attentive staff - highly recommended a visit to the souks day/night. The hotel provide free transport. We spent hours getting lost but isnt that all part of the fun?! - WIFI connection was as good as you expect for such a large hotel with lots of people. Best times to access it were early in the morning and around 8 at night. Not a major issue though as we wanted to spend a week relaxing, away from social media - Saw a few reviews mention that they struggled to find a sunbed. We were up at 8am every morning and found one without a problem. If you cannot then the staff are more then happy to help Cons: - Italian restaurant did not differ from the main restaurant in terms of food served, although the atmosphere was different and you are served by waiters. - Entertainment was pretty poor Overall if you are easy to please, looking for a chilled holiday and do not have ridiculously high expectations, that few hotels would be able to meet, there is no way you can fault this hotel! Perfect for a chilled week away in the beautiful sunshineMore
