This All Inclusive hotel is more than a little bit special. It looks like a traditional desert village, with annexes sprinkled around oasis-like gardens. There are 13 acres in total, laid with lawns, palms and hibiscus trees, and linked by stone-flagged footpaths. The size and openness of the place makes it feel really peaceful, too.
The star turn, though, has to be the pool. It’s super-sized to say the least – a seemingly endless sweep of turquoise. Marooned in the centre is a pink-domed bar. And framing the pool are more stone terraces, lined with sunloungers and white parasols.
Elsewhere, there’s a wellness centre offering a good line in massages. If you want to step things up a gear, there are tennis courts and a gym. And then there are the restaurants to consider. Along with the smart buffet dining room, there’s a Moroccan restaurant and a poolside eatery serving up light lunches and Italian cuisine for dinner.
Rooms, meanwhile, fuse modern style with authentic Moroccan touches. A canvas of dusty pinks is accessorised with satin bedcovers and inlaid wooden tables.
As for location, the hotel is in the smart Palmeraie district of Marrakech, around a 15-minute cab ride from its souks and the main square.

Lovely hotel out of the hustle and bustle of Marrakech. Friendly staff and good facilities. The food is what you'd expect from an all inclusive hotel but the variety of food on offer means that you are always likely to find something that you like.More

DO NOT LISTEN TO THE BAD REVIEWS
Just got back and we will be booking again next year as this hotel was top-notch.The food was excellent (loved the salmon and Champagne for breakfast) Always nice little touches ,the candle on the table the attention of the Maitre D and, as everyone has said, the staff were lovely, the rooms were spotless, and the grounds were beautiful. The animation team deserve a special thanks. Bar service was brilliant and the cocktails were first class. We couldn't fault it and we think the people on here who have complained must have gone to a different hotel!!More
Last minute bargain break in a lovely hotel.
My wife and I would normally had a cruise in November/December but just by chance when looking on the Thomas Cook web site I spotted an all inclusive holiday in Morocco flying from Birmingham at an unbelievable price, "Where's the catch?" the wife said. It was a fraction of the price of a cruise and the hotel was of a standard better than some cruise ships we've been on. The all the staff were cheerful and attentive, the room, set in beautiful well kept gardens, was clean and prepared well for us. A small interesting feature was the the towel shaped as swans. Very nice touch. The food was good and plentiful but probably because it was an all inclusive basis, I felt was a bit repetitive; purely a personal thing. We used the indoor pool and found it easy to get a good swim in relatively warm water. We will certainly be looking to go again at the back end of next year or maybe sooner!More

Cannot wait to go back again!
I have just returned from a visit to Marrakech after an amazing week at the hotel and resort with my husband. I'm sure my review won't do the hotel and trip justice but I'll give it a go! The flight was great and transfer went really smoothly, the trip to the hotel seemed to go really quick! On arrival we were given a welcome drinks and got checked in. Our room wasn't ready (arrived at 12pm, check in is 2pm) but simply got our wristbands, left the luggage and headed for lunch at the poolside bar for an hour. THE ROOM - room was very clean and spacious, plenty of room to put things! Everyday the room was clean by about 3pm when we returned to the room and we were kept amused by the various towel creations! THE STAFF - all the staff were brilliant, they pitched the friendliness just right, not too friendly where you thought they were being false and always been on hand. On one occasion we left our camera in the restaurant and one of the guys tracked us down just by looking at a couple of the photos, very impressive considering how busy the hotel was! On our last day I left my bag in the restaurant (tend to be quite absentminded!) and realised just as I was getting on the coach, was about to rush back in and a staff member came running out with it! The security staff are also amazing, as it was all inclusive a few guests overindulged to the point of falling over. On a few occasions we saw the security help them back to their rooms safe and sound. THE FOOD/DRINK - There are 3 restaurants, we didn't try the Italian but the Moroccan one was lovely, buffet style but definitely lovely food! I was amazed at the buffet as normally all inclusive hotels tend to just put on the same old food day after day but think there was always something different I hadn't tried before. The bar staff were great and so hard working. My husband doesn't drink but he found plenty of non alcoholic options which didn't involve fizzy drinks or water! ENTERTAINMENT - we got into the habit of spending the morning relaxing, taking a trip to the town, having dinner, then watching the evening shows. The entertainment team were great, always friendly and happy to have a chat with the guests. They may not have the polished edge of some shows I have seen but that didn't matter, they gave the show their all and it was always a good laugh. SURROUNDING AREAS AND TRIPS - the hotel is pretty out of town although only a 15-20 minute complimentary bus ride. Yes you do get told to book but we simply asked on the morning and every single time we managed to get on the bus. I wouldn't recommend that if you had a specific day but we were happy to just take our chances. The centre is amazing, split into two parts, old and new. We saw a lot of the new part when we went to Marrakech last year so concentrated on the old part this time. It is such a vibrant centre! I absolutely loved nothing more than taking a walk up to one of the rooftop terrace bars to overlook the souk. There are snake charmers and guys walking around with monkeys but to be honest they tended to be easily seen and you could just steer clear of them. The henna ladies all approached but a simple no thank you soon dissuaded them. I am notoriously bad with the whole bartering process so left that to my husband! You do get approached but they tended to just leave you alone, again after a firm no thank you. We did a few trips, the Atlas mountains, the Cascades of Ouzoud and Fantasia. I'd recommend all of them, the scenery at the mountains and waterfalls is absolutely breathtaking. The Fantasia night was great which was a repeat visits. We both cannot wait to go again and I'd even seriously consider taking a longer trip next time!More
We honeymooned here at the end of November with our 8 month old son. We were looking for something a little more special with it being our honeymoon so opted for this platinum hotel. Thomson transfers were fantastic and only took 25 mins. Drinks on arrival to hotel. Hotel was fantastic and couldn't fault cleanliness. Food nice although much of the same most days. Plenty of sun beds available. Staff all friendly and very helpful.More
