Bit of a delayed review, but me and my boyfriend stayed here for two weeks, the last week of June first week of July. I have never stayed in an all inclusive hotel before, but it more than lived up to expectation.
The entertainment team were brilliant during the day, with plenty of activities going on if you wish to take part in them. We never actually went to the night time shows as it isn't really our thing, and seemed more aimed at children with gangnam style being played too much!
Food was good, I am quite a picky eater and there was plenty for me to choose from. We did both the Moroccan and Italian restaurants once but opted for the normal dining hall after trying these, as you can pretty much get the same food in there! The only issue we found with the food was that puddings were a bit of a let down, we ended up opting for ice cream most of the time!
The pool was amazing, it was chilly when first getting in but you really needed it to be to escape from the heat! Do not underestimate the heat, we both got burnt from being sat in the shade with suncream on!
Our room overlooked the pool as I had seen reviews on here previous to going and emailed ahead to ask for a room with a pool view, which they gave us no problem upon arrival. So if you don't want far to walk from your room to the pool I advise you do the same!
The only down side we had was that our room door lock broke and reception had to be repeatedly told before it got sorted out, so we were left without a locking door for a few days!
We also did a couple of trips which we really enjoyed and gave us a taste of Moroccan life! I'd recommend the Atlas mountains 4 x 4 trip which was a very enjoyable day out, and the meal included was the best food we had while out there accompanied by stunning views!
