Adama's website is an understatement - the actual resort is beautiful and the interior of the villas is chiquely decorated. We rented a villa for 3 persons and what we got was 2-floor villa with 2 bedrooms and huge living and dining area - way more than we expected! TIP: use www.booking.com and pick "Best Deals".. .we only paid Eur 80 per night and saved Eur 40-50 per night! yes, a good deal!
The food in the resort's restaurant, though pricey, is good (lamb tajine was delicious!). They also offer beer (try Flag!) and different kinds of wine which was a treat. We skipped breakfast after reading bad reviews about it...It easier to just do your grocery in Carrefour supermarket, load your kitchen and fridge, and have all sorts of breakfast goodies, especially if you have children who are picky (my 3-year old daughter surely wants variety). But beware though in Carrefour: If you don't ahve your own car, the guard will tell you it is not allowed to take a taxi (when in fact there are lots of taxis passing by in the highway). Beware of the guard or anyone who just on stand by and who wants you to ride in their "taxis" as they will charge a ridiculous Eur 20 for just a 6 km ride to the resort!...we did get a taxi for just Eur 7 - still a bit expensive...you cannot do anything about this but haggle as ALL taxis in Morocco don't ahve meters!..In short, just rent a car during your stay.
The resort's breakfast costs Eur 11/person but not suitable for families which want balanced meals. They have lots of cakes, crossants but hardly no fruits, and no milk. I ordered a small bowl of mixed fruit for my daughter - it costs Eur 3.00 and all they have are small cuts of apples and measly banana on it...but still better have some fruits than nothing...After getting familiar with the resorts restaurant menu, we decided to just buy some fruits, breakfast & other goodies and yes, coffee for the coffee maker.
We decided to book this resort beacuse of the relaxing ambiance and the swimming pool...though the sorrounding grounds is nice, the pool is coooooooooooold. Despite the sunny days (average 18-20 degrees celcius day temperature in april), the pool's water is still too cold for both adults and children. All you can do is lie down under the sun in the nice pool benches...the resort has a play area for children but all was it is a small room which doesn't have windows (yes it was dark and not that inviting for my 3-year old daughter) and a small play ground with broken slides, and kiddie pool which can be very exciting if only the water is warm....not sure about costs of heating up the water but this is really a BIG downside of our stay (as we didlook forward to swimming).
The PLUS, however is the free shuttle ride to center of Marrakesh...The BIG downside is that you cannot find the bus if you want to ride back to the resort!
All in all, we had a good stay (especially if you just want to have a relaxing time in the villa - all villas have their own garden area with dining table and chairs)...but if you look forward to swimming, be sure you book this hotel in the summer when temperature reaches 40 degrees!
