First of all, the room has a kettle and two decent sized mugs! I wish Thomsons could mention this in brochure or read on here as would have saved me taking both, useful to know before hand.
Yes, the hotel, food, staff, grounds are lovely. Two gripes for me having stayed in Tikida Palmeraie, Marrakech. No BBC1 or ITV. I know you don't go on holiday for TV but it's a nice touch to watch something familiar first thing, getting ready or when you return to room as the TP in Marra is only 4* and has this. My husband wanted to watch the England-Aussie rugby and had to go to and find somewhere showing this. We queried this and was told it was because of the 'make up' of the clients. Clearly, not enough British at hotel but this is not going to stop anyone going as it is a fabulous hotel.
The room is lovely with those little extras that make it nice. A flexible reading light, stocked bar, kettle with tea/milk as mentioned. However, to straighten my hair, which takes a while, I had to unplug the TV so I could be near a mirror, or you could use the plug at one of the bedsides and use mirror on opposite wall but it would have been nice to have a seating and mirror area together for this and make up.
Would I go back? No, simply because I have been to Marrakesh three times and as a resort it wins hands down. Agadir, as people have mentioned, has very little to offer. Also, after four visits think I have had enough of queuing for 45 mins after long flight at passport control. More staff needed. This was worse on return. We had two check outs open for Manchester which were rediculously long. It took 55mins to get to front in this stuffy airport and then a further 20 mins to get though passport contrso on your feet for 75mins with not a seat in sight.
Just want to say all the staff are lovely and i fyou have booked you can't fail to enjoy!
