At this hotel, a good-sized pool is backed up by a trio of bars and a Moroccan à la carte nestled in the gardens.
This hotel is set in lovely gardens. Inside, it’s all marble floors and ornately-tiled ceilings. There’s a courtesy bus to Gueliz’s modern shops – about 25 minutes’ walk on from there takes you to the medina.
There’s a large pool for everyone, plus a separate children’s pool. A buffet restaurant takes care of meals, and the à la carte place specialises in Moroccan tagines. A pair of bars take care of evenings.

Perfect for a weeks stay to explore the city
Just returned from a week's stay, arrived when the temperature was 33C and left when it was 22C. The hotel is a little oasis on the edge of the city. Perfect location to explore Marrakesh, we walked into the Medina several times (about a 20 minute walk) and also used the hotel's shuttle bus which takes you into the new part of the city. The hotel is spacious but not large. Plenty of gardens and seating space, just enough sun beds around the pool, we visited in March and believe the hotel was not at full capacity. The hotel's pool wasnice but icy COLD!! Even the children's small pool was icy cold althought as both pools are not heated, I'm sure it will get better in the summer. Pool was large, clean and well maintained. One main buffet restaurant for breakfast, the selection was the same each day. Cereals were cheap and didn't taste nice. Bacon was offered twice during our stay. Lots of turkey sausages and eggs on offer as well as spam type ham and cheeses. The pool side restaurant offered a basic continental breakfast until midday and a hot lunch selection. The restaurant offered dinner with turkey or chicken in some form and fish on the menu each day. The pasta station was always the same dish, a plain pasta, tomato sauce, bolognaise sauce and a tasteless cheese. Both sauces were a little on the flavourless side. A soup was also available, usually a bland veg mix. The tagine dishes were always the same as well, plain cous cous, stewed vegetables and very occasionally mixed couscous with veg! The vegetarian section always contained 4 dishes, usually with the same veg! Desserts were sweet and plain, although the fruit and fruit salads were tasty. One night we ate at the Moroccan restaurant on site, bookings were available for a 1.5 hour slot, which seemed a little rushed. However, the food was much better. You had a different starter selection, different salads and a traditional chicken pastry. You could order either a lamb tagine with veg, chicken and lemon tagine (no veg), vegetable and couscous tagine or a fish tagine. My husband enjoyed the lamb tagine and I found the lemon flavour of the chicken too overpowering but it made a lovely change. Dessert was a selection of sweet cakes. Coffee was awful unless you got it from the Zanzibar bar where the coffee was made by a coffee bean machine. If you wanted a kettle and tea facilities in the room, you had to ask and pay to hire it! Drinks at the bar were appalling, we had to ask for "double" measures, and still watched the bar staff filling the glass with ice and lemons, then soda and drizzling vodka on the top. Wine was acceptable, beer was gassy. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and kept very clean! Our beds were very comfortable, and like another reader I found the inroom fridge and hairdryer old and pretty useless so do take your own dryer! Air con was turned off during our week despite it being hot at night. Our major disappointment was the evening entertainment, which was audience participation only. We came out after 15 minutes and gave up listening to the 3 or 4 team members trying to talk in very bad English. I do not expect to go away on holiday to participate in quizzes, karaoke and dance sessions, I want to be entertained, not be the entertainment. Very poor organisation!! Plus points: clean hotel; very helpful and friendly staff; beautiful gardens and pool; ideal location for exploring the town. Minus points: old and little facilities in the room; monotonous and tasteless food; appalling evening entertainment.More

Week of relaxation
We visited for a week of relaxation an absolute bargain all inclusive break, the hotel is immaculately clean the staff are extremely helpful and friendly nothing is too much trouble. The air conditioning was not in use as we apparently were having a heat wave and it was going to be cold the next week! It was over 30 degrees whilst we were there so our room was too hot. Food was plentiful although rather repetitive. The chef cooked my husband special poached eggs for breakfast very personal service! Our room was spacious with comfortable beds. The hairdryer was a very old fashioned one in the bathroom so if you have long hair take your own! We would recommend this hotel even if we think some of the drinks were watered down like the fun and vodka wine was ok though. Recommend this hotel for a week two weeks would have been too long to stay. More
Great friendly staff
We got a last minute deal here, all inclusive, the weather was amazing, hotel was huge with a big outdoor pool and lovely heated indoor pool, lots of sun beds, we never had to rush! Lots of choice of foods each day and the staff were all so friendly they couldn't do enough for you! The only negative would be the plumbing within the hotel, it's very old and not up to date with uk standards, we had a problem with out sink which once was mentioned was fixed straight away. Very clean hotel set in lovely grounds, would definitely recommend a cheeky week away here!More
I had great time in this hotel the room was lovely and the food was great, getting into the centre was so easy, the staff help with anything you need, I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone. Hopefully I will be back again soonMore
Stayed here for a week. If you wanted to you could spend all your holiday here. Pleasant grounds with lots of sitting areas. Some for the sun some for shade. Two pools one inside one out, hotel gives you vouchers so you can have towels for the pool. Also free bottled water as much as you like. Rooms clean and each has either a terrace or balcony. Food is very acceptable. Lots of variety and good quality. There's also a free shuttle bus to town and back several times s day. There's an a la carte restaurant which is ok but nothing to get too wild about. All in all a good place to stay. Would certainly stay here again More
