My boyfriend and I went here in June on a travelzoo deal and the hotel exceeded all of our expectations. We paid £250 each for 4nights, flights and all inclusive food and drink, activities and entertainment. For what we received we would definitely have paid more. The food choices were really good and you could book into the Italian restaurant or Morrocan restaurant if you wanted a set menu rather than a buffet. All alcoholic drinks were included (local drinks that is) and there was a nightclub that was open to 2 in the morning.
As other reviews have mentioned it is a predominantly French hotel but there was a dedicated member of staff that spoke English and all other members of staff were friendly. I would recommend brushing up on your french to ask for drinks etc but to be honest that was part of the fun - we had gone to another country so didn't expect to have an English experience.
In the evening the entertainment was in French and English so that all guests could take part. I would definitely recommend the Morroccan entertainment night (Wed night), it was awesome.
The hotel has a number of excursions that you can go on. We went on the 4x4 drive into the Atlas mountains and this included visiting a local village and going into a house and being treated to a traditional tea ceremony. I would recommend this. A number of guests also visited the waterfuls and foothills of the Atlas mountains and they were really pleased with these tours.
Before we went there we looked at the map and saw it was 30mins outside Marrakech and we were dissappointed, however, when we arrived we were actually really happy to be situated there. It meant we could chill by the pool when we wanted and chose when to go into Marrakech for the hub bub. nb the shuttle bus is a bit random - it is an old rachety bus that looks quite comical. It was free though and safe so we could not ask for much more.
There is also a Morrocan Hamman / spa place. I had the Morrocan treatment which I thought included a massage and it didn't, so I was a bit gutted but this is the only example of things getting lost in translation.
The room was lovely and the bathroom was like something out of Indiana Jones. The hotel building has a traditional style and we got some good pictures of us there.
All in all we loved it and if the deal came up again we would return just to chill by the pool and relax.
Thank you to the hotel for giving us such a wonderful holiday :) :) :)
