“Some places are not for dark skinned people”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

Nikki beach in spain is so welcoming, it made Nikki beach Morocco look really bad. We ordered so much food, told them we would think about our drinks either a bottle and a bed. We went in for a swim while waiting for our food and got told we had to get out unless we paid 350 dirhams (£30) to swim! How crazy, we then noticed we were the only dark skinned guests, and when we protested that we had ordered over £100 or more of food so why pay another amount to swim, some bar tenders started laughing at us as if to say oh wait you're too broke to be in here! What lack of customer service, we then decided we would not even eat there at all at which point they proceeded to shout at us and laugh some more which showed us that you should never feel embarrassed to stand our ground and just say no to bad service. In the end, we left and went to eat at jemaa el fna square, we had delicious tangine and other couscous meals with free tea and juice for just £2 each and the staff also sang for us. What a stark difference!

“Waste of time”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

It was absolute waste of time and money. I paid 150 dirhams to get there and when the security gaurd let us in and when we went inside there were only 2 people. All the beds were empty and they asked for 300 dirhams to chill on the beds. I ordered a corona which was warm and it was 130 dirhams( over £11) for a beer which was ridiculous. The people working there are moody and don't even smile or communicate with you properly. The Miami one is much better.

“Terrible service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

We went to Morrocco during Ramadan and were all really excited about going to Nikki beach. We're from London but ethnic origin is Indian and for some reason the people here thought we were Morroccon. All we wanted was something to eat and drink as we had been walking around all day and were quite tired and hungry and thought this would be the perfect place but no. The security guards at the front let us through but when we went inside the waiters and staff said they weren't serving food or drink to anyone because it was Ramadan! Which was a total lie because there was two ladies lying by the pool with a drink. We were so angry and after explaining we re really hungry and needed a drink because of our day they still didnt want to serve us and has the cheek to say its 300 dirums just to sit by the pool without any food or drink. We were mortified and said forget it and left. Just because the colour of our skin we were not fasting and were not Morroccon either, they just assumed that we were which is the worst. We had heard good things about this place but will never go back because of the rudeness of the staff there. Our driver from our hotel had dropped us off there and was due to pick us up 4 hours later so we had to walk for ages in the heat until we found another place which was very nice and was a hotel and pool bar and they were very willing to let us enjoy there facilities and have food and drink there :)
