This hotel is superb from the moment you arrive and are met with a welcome drink to the time you say your goodbyes and go home. if you are looking for a resort type hotel away from the mayhem of Marrakesh then this hotel is it. Well run, genuine friendly staff, and very professional service,
The rooms are big and well decorated with a couch lcd TV fridge can be a bit of a walk from the main block due to size of hotel
There are 3 restaurants the main one. a Moroccan restaurant and an Italian one we found all superb with a wide choice of good quality food cooked in front of you by chiefs and various cooking stations who put the food out for a Buffet style service. There is a choice of 3 wines beer and soft drinks with meals plus an extensive range of deserts. In-between meal time’s snacks were available.
Pool area and day time activities
The outdoor pool is massive the biggest we have ever seen as soon as you arrive at the pool area your are brought towels and pillows plenty of choice of sun loungers and also double and triple beds and couches there are two pool bars (only one open in winter) with a full choice of cocktails spirits wine soft drinks teas and coffees and also a self service bar area for soft drinks.
The Animation team runs activities such as bingo, aerobics and darts and there are two table tennis tables also games pitch and tennis courts the Animation team are friendly not too pushy and seem to enjoy their jobs and get people involved f they wish.
There is a indoor pool which is also quite large and a Gym with good quality equipment a spa centre and Children’s club and park.
There is a show bar where the entertainment team put on a show every night, in the foyer where a keyboard player and singer played and people danced and the main lounge bar which is where we spent most evenings the Bar staff we great and they were no restrictions on the number of drinks you could get this is good when you are at a table with a few people all bars stop serving at midnight.
This is a top quality hotel with professional staff and well managed its location is outside of the centre of Marrakesh but as this was our second visit to the area we wanted to be away from the hustle and bustle , the hotel runs a free bus all day right into the heart of Marrakesh 20mins away
Only real room for improvement was the queues for lunch it got very busy around 2pm and some guests lacked manners also it would be good to have tea coffee making facilities in rooms
Well done to all the staff of Riu Tikida Palmeraie we will be back
