“Beautiful resort for a quiet trip away!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

Arrived at airport and unfortunately they charged us 300 Dirhams (£37) to get to hotel. It was only 120D to get back at end of holiday! Hotel has 2 extremely large pools, not heated but still lovely. Plenty of comfy beds round pool. Rooms are very large. Bathrooom had a shower, separate bath and twin sinks in it. Food was quite repetitive but delicious. Staff very kind and helpful. Definitely a place to visit for a quiet break about 15 mins from the main square. Shuttle bus runs 9am to 8pm free of charge from hotel. A taxi will only cost you £10 one way.

Room Tip: We were in room 108 on ground floor next to pool and it was perfect as you could nip to bar and brin...

Highly recommend this resort. Please be aware however that in Morocco there is a tourism tax. Of 35 MAD a day per guest. Alain and Toto and all of the entertainment team really deserve a mention, they work very long hours but are ways cheerful. The waiting staff are exceptional. The food is good but after a few days can become a bit repetitive. Overall a great holiday but one of the barmen in particular was rather sullen and it was almost as if he was pouring drinks like they were coming out from his own budget. He smiled mostly at us on the day we were leaving, possibly expecting some Dirhams. Marrakech itself was exactly how we expected it would be, go with a strong spirit for saying non or no very politely and get a very good guide as it could be rather daunting to a novice traveller. Would visit this hotel again. Maid service was great, lovely polite cleaning team for whom nothing was too much of a problem.

This is my honest review and will highlight both the good as well as the bad points and only hope that if the hotel do reply to this, they actually answer the points raised rather than refer that this is mentioned on there website, as all this shows is that your hotel is incapable of listening to its customers and will continue to have many empty rooms whilst your local competitors are always fully booked if you can't accept constructive criticism?

Good Points
1. Hotel is kept extremely clean in general and can't imagine anyway finding a fault with this.

2. The rooms are very nicely decorated, black out curtains, extremely comfortable beds and 2 English movie channels to watch all day. Powerful shower, 2 wash basins and a phone by the toilet!?

3. Breakfast, lunch and dinner (dinner in main dinning area at least) was very nice and we were both happy with the variety and quality offered, with the exception of deserts

4. Free shuttle bus into Marrakech. This was needed as this hotel's locality is away from a lot of attractions. But finishes at 8:30pm with local taxis charging 120MAD/£10 each way if needed for 25min trip.

Bad Points
1. The drinks are limited. Only 1 bar available during the day for all inclusive customers (who don't wish to visit the always empty Jazz Bar and PAY extortionate amount for any drinks, including coke or water!? The only bar open will often have a cue and the single guy serving has got to be the most miserable and rudest member of staff on this resort/Marrakech! Only 2 drinks per person, these will be served in very small glasses and often half full. What little cocktails offered are from a pre-mixed vending machine and again served in tiny glasses, be it plastic for pool area or not. No Sangria, even though it was listed on the drinks menu offered (for example).

2. No Panoramic Bar AT ALL, closed with no excuse or apology for the duration of our stay, meaning the only place to go in the evenings (for free that is) was to sit out in the main area and watch the "entertainers!?!" Read below.

3. In door swimming pool does look fantastic. Problem is it cost 150MAD/£12 each time you wish to use it!?!

4. The gym is okay but problem is YOU ALSO NEED TO PAY 150MAD/£12 each time you wish to use it. No doubt I will get a reply from their customer service manager "it is stated in our small print"! But that is still unexceptable for a wannabe 5* hotel.

5. Towels for use around the pool. Step one, ask for a towel at the far side of the pool. Step two, unless to get a receipt from reception for 200MAD/£18 deposit!? Reception mind you is located the other end of complex, how convenient is that!?

6. Speciality restaurants - usually the highlight of any all inclusive resort was disappointing on every level. Fixed menu with no options at all. Every drink is charged extortionately regardless if you are all inclusive or not. Example, we bought a coke for 25MAD/£2 each and was just handed a can to open ourselves!? Can not believe we both got dressed up for this type of service!?! Both restaurants were empty and last night the Italian did not bother opening at all, neither did the entertainment (which was actually a relief!)

7. "Entertainment" My god, usually when entertainment is this bad it can be ironically funny but sadly no, it couldn't even merit this! Please bare in mind that there is no real option outside this resort to go to, you are trapped with having to endure their performance! No live band or singers, their supposedly comedy skits are all mimed, along with any singing, nothing of any cultural relevance to Morocco, just totally abysmal! Example, a man with clown getup came on with his trousers down and sat on a bed pan and went on 5 minutes!? What the $&^"&?

Summary
If you want a cheap deal and can overlook the faults above, then it is worth a visit as they always have last minute deals where all the other big hotels don't. BUT if you did read all of the above, you can form a good idea why!...?

We have just returned from the Eden Andalou in Marrakech. As a family of 2 teenage girls and a 6 year old girl. I wouldn't say it was a 5* hotel, more 4* and we are just being a little picky. The olnly downside's for us were the swimming pool was freezing cold, to the point we couldn't enjoy a dip, although it didn't seem to deter our youngest and our shower in the room was clogged with limescale, therefore its flow wasn't brilliant, although hot enough.

The free shuttle bus into the centre of Marrakech was really handy and we used this on a couple of occasions to see the delights of the market square and take a tour of the city. Well worth a visit. The food was good and varied and the staff seemed friendly enough. The weather was a little mixed but on the whole around 27c. Yes there are lots of flies, but hey!! it's North Africa, what do you expect....Overall a nice half term break for the family on the outskirts of a busy city.

Lovely place , great place for kids . Entertainment staff very friendly, helpful and intuitive.
ALAIN has been outstanding in looking after us and daughter who said she had had her best holiday ever( thank you Alain).

However far from town especially if you want to enjoy the night life of Marrakech last transfer is at 20:30.
