My partner and I have only just come back from Marrakech and I am still feeling the relaxing benefits of our break.
We flew late out to our destination from gatwick but the restaurant and hotel staff stayed up for our arrival and we had drinks and dinner in the beautiful restaurant.
Every day was glorious sunshine and not too hot so would recommend October as a great time to go!! Flies are very pesky though so have some fly repellent to hand. However very few if no mossies!! The food was very delicious and catered to all tastes- particularly loved the omelette station at breakfast!! Watch out you WILL come back a stone heavier but it will all be worth it!
The staff are so friendly from the bar to the entertainment teams and actually remember you and I can't fault how hard they work.
The spa was fantastic I treated myself to a little massage and pedicure which was lovely and it is open until 7pm so you don't have to miss the sunshine hours!
Our room was massive for a twin so unless you NEED a junior suite I would say save your money by getting a twin room! Save your pennies for the souks in Marrakech! The shuttle bus is fantastic but make sure you are on time to be picked up in the square!! We visited the town in the day and night and I personally preferred the day time as there was a lot of caged animals at night and pretty crowded which can be a bit discomforting.
We were looked after our whole stay and felt like royalty I cannot wait to go back! Thank you all at Riu! Xxx
