I stayed here for 4 nights and i wish i had more time.
The staff were really helpful and always willing to do more. The room was clean with everything working properly. The pool was clean too and always enough seats - when the pool staff get to knnow you after 1 or 2 days they tend to reserve your bed for you.
We had half board but only found out that we could eat at the casino on the 3rd night - the food in the casino was to die for! I had to keep asking if they were sure that it was covered because it was that good. We spent 2 and half hours eating and drinking! We ate in the hotel the first two nights and i was really pleased with that also.
We went to a Moroccan themed night that the hotel had planned which consisted of us eating traditional moroccan food with a Moroccan show. This was fantastic! The food was really good and i am Moroccan so i can judge Moroccan food really well, the portions were massive too. They had live bands, belly dancers and gymnasts etc.
The hotel was about 10 minutes in a cab from old marrakesh and possibly 2-3 minutes from new marrakesh so it was a good balance. The hotel is stuck on to a casino if you go to the back of the hotel. From there you can also access shisha cafes and other bars.
I only managed to wake up for breakfast once ( its a holiday!), but the one day that i did go down i had a good full breakfast. Eating breakfast in the garden is like nothing ive experienced before, listening to the birds and the trees, it was actually very quiet on my table i think every one was just enjoying the food an the surroundings. I had soup and some croissants with almond something in them - it was really good! The fruit was fresh too.
The main thing i remember about this hotel is about how attentive the staff were. I was feeling very poorly one day and the staff asked if i was alright, i told them about how i felt and the next morning i had the receptionist knocking on my door checking to see how i am and if they could go to the pharmacy for me! You cant buy service like that.
