We returned yesterday from Morocco. We were there for 7 nights and it wasn't enough we wish we had booked for 10 days. The hotel is exceptionally clean, the staff across the board are friendly and helpful. The food is good but often repetitive but hey that's what hotels are like in North Africa from my experience. The one thing I would comment on negatively is that the way the rooms are laid out there is a short walk to the facilities and they are noisy at night when people come in, the corridors echo shoes and voices. Would I go back ? As fast as I could. Was it absolutely wonderful value for money ? Yes it was. The transfer time from the airport was fairly short which is always good for me and the weather was exceptionally hot for this time of year another huge bonus. Free wifi was just in the lobby and lobby bar. I would definitely recommend this hotel and even the local drinks (included as it was an all inclusive holiday) were good :)More
One week all inclusive excellent value!
An EXTREMELY good value all inclusive hotel with a good selection of food and drinks although we found the evening 'entertainment' poor enough to be almost embarrassing. Food is available all day until about 21:30 and there was a good enough selection for a week although the novelty might wear off if you're staying for longer.
Rooms are a decent size with daily room service but expect a long walk from your room to the main building where the restaurants and bars are.
The hotel offers a free minibus to and from Marrakech city centre and the two onsite reps (Sandra and Rashid) can arrange various different daytrips around Morocco and seem to know the area inside out - The 'Berber 4x4 Trails' daytrip is highly recommended as is a visit to the souks.
The hotel changes money at a better rate than the airport but note you cannot change money in the UK before or after your holiday as the local currency is only available in Morocco! (Also note that once you are airside in the airport you can only spend pounds or Euros and NOT the local Dirhams so change it before going through security.)
Main outside pool was too cold to go in (but it was January!) but the indoor pool was just right plus children have their own separate indoor pool.
Free wifi in all common areas but NOT in the rooms!
I doubt I'd visit Marrakech again as there's really much there but if I was in the area I WOULD use this hotel again.More
Amazing Hen Weekend!!
Myself & 9 friends had the pleasure of staying here for a Hen Do in early Jan...what a brilliant idea on the hens part!!! The staff at this hotel are so attentive and nothing is too much trouble. They put our towels out as soon as they got to the pool bar so that we could all be together by the pool and after the first day we didn't even need to get up for drinks as they brought them over as soon as they could see we were getting low!! We always got a table together for dinner/lunch and the food was brilliant, so much choice and plenty of it!! The cocktails both alcoholic and non were lovely.
We stayed in 5 suites and the view from ours over the pool was perfect as the sun was setting.
I would recommend this hotel without hesitation. 3 of the ladies in our party have stayed here 6 times and I myself will be booking up again at the next given opportunity ðâï¸
A trip to the souks on the complimentary coach the hotel puts on is a must also...get your bartering head on and bag yourself some goodies!! The leather out there is great quality and I came back with the most gorgeous bag!! Even if you don't feel like spending it's worth going just for the atmosphere...snake charmers, monkeys and a great spice market in the evening!! More
Good value - does what it says on the tin
This is a large international and all inclusive hotel about 20 minutes outside Marrakech. It is very good in that it is all and more of what you should expect from a large, international and all inclusive hotel. It will not give you the full experience of Marrakech (which is probably what some will want, but not all). The great thing is that it is amazing value (certainly in January & if you book yourself and do your own flights - and why not, its dead simple to).
We enjoyed our stay very much, the hotel is very good at what it does. My only gripe was the quality of the wifi, which we found too poor for current standards and expectations (and should be easy to fix... please!). Food, rooms, pool area are all very good. Food in the Moroccan restaurant is especially good - you have to book when you get there, so I would recommend you book as many nights as you can as soon as you arrive (I tried to book in advance, which didn't work, even for my partner's birthday).
We would recommend the hotel (and we will probably stay again). My real recommendation would be to split your time in Marrakech between here and a few nights in a Riad in the centre for a more complete experience (if that is the type of more interesting holiday you want). If you want a cheap January sunny relaxing break (and don't fancy Tenerife or Sharm this year), then this is a great choice on its own.More
Value for money
Travelled as a family group of 4 50+ , and enjoyed every minute. Some " moaners " need a reality check.
