This is the most honest review you will read for this hotel.
I give this hotel 9/10 - read to see why!
Firstly I am 26 and went away with my younger brother and a friend.
Not for a lads holiday as such...just a cheap holiday with daily activities i.e football, volleyball, water polo and it cost me £500 for 11 nights.
The room quality was the only downside of the hotel. We didn’t have air con and there wasn't a fridge. You also have to pay for the safe which worked out at £20 for the 11 nights. Putting that aside, the rooms were cleaned every day and the air con wasn't needed as the room was always cool.
There are 3 pools staggered around the hotel. One pool has basketball and water polo nets.
Food quality was very good. I was quite surprised how good the food was as it’s only a 3 star hotel. There are a few smaller restaurants which you have to book in advance for. These are all free but as they are smaller you do have to book them. Theres a steak house, pizza house, fish house, Chinese and some more. I would recommend these as the food quality is better and it makes a change from keep eating in the main restaurant. All these smaller restaurants are staggered around the hotel complex.
Great beach with a bar for your all inclusive drinks. The hotel has its own private area that is roped off so the Moroccan sellers can’t come up and bother you. The beach is 5 min walk from the end of the hotel complex.
I chose this hotel because I'm very sporty and I wasn't let down. Every day there were a handful of sporting activities from darts, volleyball, football, table tennis and the list goes on. It was very well organised. There is also a crazy golf course which is free all day.
The standard gym at the hotel was very poor. There was hardly anything in it and one machine didn’t work properly. There is a ‘5 star’ gym above reception but you have to pay for it. Its approx £5 per hour or £20 for 6 days. I would definitely recommend this gym as its very big and well equipped with a punching bag and treadmills etc.
The Animation Team are excellent.
Obviously Im 26 so didn't watch any of the children shows but for kids under 16 it’s great.
There is a Theatre in the complex and every 4 nights or so the Animation Team would put a show on. When I was there they had Cats, Aladdin and the Lion King. Ok I did watch a little bit and it was very good. As I say above, kids under 16 will love this hotel.
When the shows weren’t on the Animation Team would get the hotel guests up to play games and there was plenty of music with lots of dancing every night.
Tips for your stay-
Please read it’s really useful!!!
Morocco is a country where tipping is a way of life.
Now I know what a lot of the think.....I'm not tipping, I've paid for this holiday and the hotel staff should treat me just the same if I tip or not. Lets be honest guys we live in a REAL world and I promise you, your stay will be much better if you do a bit of tipping.
For example at night, the queue for the bar could be 10 mins. After about 6 nights I got tired of waiting to be served so I tipped the bar man £1 as I waited at the side of bar. Yes just £1 and I never queued again. He always recognised me so I would wait at the side of the bar rather than the front and he would get my drinks straight away. Overall I probably gave him a total of £4 for jumping the queue every night.... its nothing.
The restaurants I was telling you about that you have to book. Well you can’t go to the same one twice in your stay. Well just tip the man £1 who books the table for you and your problem is solved ;-). I went to the steak house 3 times.
The Moroccans think we are all Millionaires!!!!
Please make sure you get the prices right down when buying something.
For example in the hotel complex there are a number of stalls which sell watches, hats, clothes etc. The guy selling fake watches started off with a price of 1,300 Dirham’s (£100) and in a few mins we got him down to 200 Dirham’s (£15). So please make sure you work out the costs before buying something because they will rip you off.
Will I go back? -
I am actually planning on going back in Sept this year with my brother for 7 nights. So yes I had a great time and would definitely recommend the hotel.
I hope my review has been useful ;-)
