First time in Morocco, arrived 26th July. Private transfer from airport to hotel, which was a definite plus!Only couple in our tour operator group to be checking into A.P, which worried me a bit but paid it no heed. Hotel in an area with plenty of other hotels so there are lots of other tourists in the area. We were welcomed into the hotel and given some Moroccan tea to sip on while our details were sorted out. A deposit of 200euro was required, which seemed quite steep(the usual for me would be about 50euro).
Hotel room was lovely, but as far as I remember, we had been booked for a garden view with balcony. Instead we were shown to a ground level garden view terrace. I didn't mind at all, as there was no difference-until the morning when I found ants crawling around by the terrace door and in the room itself. Not sure if the same thing happens on rooms higher up, but I'd be requesting 1st level room next time!But the room we had was very nice-HUGE bed, very clean room, bright and airy. All rooms have internet, but it ca be a bit slow-find out what your hotel section is called as the internet is divided into hotel areas.
Pool area is lovely, very relaxed and lots of sunbeds to choose from, all with parasols. Bar beside the pool has nice food, but on our first experience there, the food took about half an hour to arrive(pizza and chicken pitta). However, the second time round, it was there within 10 mins so we just put it down to a busy day first time round!Food within the hotel is very expensive-32 euro per person for buffet dinner, and 16 per person for buffet lunch(even though I was quote 25 p/p by reception).
Breakfast is wonderful-absolutely spoiled for choice! Lots of bread, hot food(omelettes, potato, tomatoes, sausages, scrambled/fried eggs, pancakes), cereals, meats and fruit. Freshly squeezed juices aswell, which are amazing!
Restaurants are definitely within walking range of the hotel-Come out the main entrance of the hotel gates and turn right and if you follow that road all the way down you see lots of restaurants and the promenade is right beside you with lots more aswell. Our recommendations are Little Norway, Mimi Le Brochette, Le Nil Bleu-all wonderful food with very friendly staff.
There is a shop within the hotel for items like water, snacks, toiletries etc but they are pricier than outside. Unfortunately, the hotel operates a policy that forbids you from bringing any foods or drinks into the hotel. I refused to pay 4euro for a big bottle of water when it was 1.50 outside, so we just brought a backpack with us, which solved the problem.
Also, there is no night-time entertainment in the hotel, so if you're going with kids, there is nothing in A.P eg kids clubs or shows at night. Along the promenade, there were lots of bouncy castles and play areas which would be perfect:) It was Ramadan while we were there, so the promenade was still really busy at 11pm or so, tourists and locals!
We definitely enjoyed our stay at Atlantic Palace, a few hiccups but nothing major! Hope this review was in some way helpful, tried to include everything!
