Have just returned from a 7 night stay. This is not my first trip to Morocco or Marrakech so I have a few points of reference to compare with. First the positives: the food was fantastic- authentic, varied and plenty to choose from. The only downside was a slightly uninspired breakfast range. The air conditioning worked very well. The rooms are spacious but a little oddly configured. The pool was big and well maintained with a reasonable number of sun loungers. There is a free shuttle bus to the city centre. Free WiFi isvavailable in the communal areas.
Not so good: service generally. I found the waiters and reception staff slightly surly. Bar service was incredibly slow even for something as simple as a cup of coffee. A self service coffee machine would be far better. Some rooms are a suite with the ac in the sofa area but not in the bedroom. There are no lifts although all areas are just two storeys. There was a general lack of finish about the place. I'm well aware that four star in north Africa is not the same as four star in the UK but even so I did not think this hotel comes to that standard.
Overall it is not bad and it was good value for the deal we found but I wouldn't stay here again. There are two other things to be aware of. French is the main language spoken and most guests were French making communicating in English very challenging. Also this hotel really is in the middle of nowhere. Not near any shops or bars or anything. You will need to cab it everywhere if you want some time out.
