A nice location just out of the old town and backing onto the famous Jardin Majorelle. About 20-25 minutes walk to the Main Square or a cheap taxi ride. (or Caleche - Horse and carridge- if you prefer as they all stop here to visit the gardens)
The complex entrance is hidden in the corner of a car park by a fitness centre. Most taxi drivers do not seem to know its there. Just ask for the Jardin Majorelle and get dropped opposite the supermarket.
Its a pleasnt complex with the entrances to the apartments built around a swimming pool. The apartments are on two levels with the bedroom on the second level with a large balcony around the back going off the bedroom. Ours (213) backed nicely onto the Jardin Majorelle gardens.
Its quiet even though its near a busy main road and at night you get to hear the frogs chatting to each other!
There are no facililites. No bar, restaurant etc but there is a good large supermarket across the road and a few restaurants nearby.
The apartments are clean and spacious. They are a little worn though. New balcony furniture is needed. My plastic chair was so brittle from too long in the sun that it shattered when I leant back on it. The few sunbeds around the swimming pool are falling apart. The public areas are cleaned every dayand the room was tidied by the made each day too.
The good modern air conditioning units were really appriciated!
No microwave in the kitchen. And they charged £1.50 because I broke a small glass! Talking of charges there are tourist taxes to pay - about £15.00. (400 DHM) Internet wi fi costs £7.50 for the week but we managed to find a free signal on the balcony and the local pizza place has free wifi too.
All in all a good base to explore Marrakech from and ok for the price but it wouldn't hurt them to make a few cheap upgrades.
