“Not for the English”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

Overall it's a nice hotel, but has should really address the meaning of "ALL INCLUSIVE". The food at the hotel or lack of it leaves a lot to be desired. Breakfast - The choice is cold runny scrambled eggs which you can't eat or bread. Lunch - Salad with anything they can rustle up Dinner - Well just be grateful for what you get. I have never stayed at an AI where the food is so little and poor. The rooms are clean and the pool area is nice. If you are AI your drinks are served in the bar near the pool there is a bar in the hotel but this is for paying customers and not for those that have paid up front!!! Would I come back definitely not, it is not a hotel for the English.

Really nice hotel and at a great affordable price. Pool area is huge. Peopple were complaining in reviews about the shuttle bus setvice however we took a leaflet of all the times to the centre and found it to be extremely efficient and bang on time! The driver was also very helpful when we had any questions.

Poolside food was not great bit did the job when we just flew in and were starving!

Rooms were lovely as was the shower and we had a large balcony overlooking pool area and next to the nightclub.

I stayed there 2 times on my trip to morocco and think this is great value for money. Hotel has new facilities, friendly staff and large green closed territory slightly outside of Marrakesh. Fresh air is guaranteed. I had some problems finding it the first time but after after asking around couple of times I was pointed into the right direction.

Overall I was quite happy with my choice and there was nothing to regret about. They were definitely above my expectations.

The hotel is lovely the rooms are too the bed is really comfy and the showers are amazing they are like waterfalls the rooms have a safe hair dryer and mini bar but nothing was in it but we didn't mind we brought up water whenever we needed it.
The staff are polite you just have to try hard to communicate your wishes as it is mainly are French resort but some staff can speak a little English we had no problems.

The only downside is sometimes the food was rubbish but that was because they do theme nights and when they try to cook American English etc they aint too good at it but when it's morrocon night we ate really well the breakfast is limited to sloppy scrambled egg and basic cheese hams but there was always fresh bread which was gorgeous.

The hotel is out of the way so they provide the shuttle bus which was fantastic always on time so it meant you had to be aswell.

It tries to provide entertainment but it's not that good we were bored most nights here unless we went out to the city and ate out.

Basically if you are after a resort where you want to do nothing but eat sleep sunbathe chill and nothing major then this is the place we enjoyed ourselves and totally chilled out

Having booked 3 nights half board and reading some reviews, I wasn't too certain about my choice! The price I paid led me to think there would be a catch! Indeed, the catch is that the hotel is far from the centre of Marrakech - at least 20 mins in the free shuttle bus provided by the hotel. It is regular and on time - you book your drop off and pick up so you can be certain of a seat!

The lobby of this hotel is wonderful, looks very 4 star - the pool area looks brilliant although the pool is a little too cold for swimming at the moment! The rooms are all tastefully decorated, modern and spacious! There is free wifi in rooms facing the pool area, air conditioning, a fridge which you can ask to be filled with minibar items.

The staff are all friendly, there is always someone who speaks English although using a bit of French also is useful. The dinner was tasty and a good choice given the limited number of guests the hotel has staying at this time of the year. There is a shop in the hotel selling gifts and basic supplies - it is very expensive! But, the only shop for miles!

I found this hotel great value for money, if you don't mind being away from the city centre and are happy to take the free shuttle bus then it's a great option - provided you are half board! Otherwise you'd need to eat in the city before coming back! The compound where the hotel is located also has its own security!

My wife and I visited Morocco for the first time for a 10 night break. We looked at plenty of hotels and we immediately fell in love with this one. The price was excellent and the hotel had been open just over a year. We found the hotel to be in excellent condition and always very clean. The staff were always trying to get people involved but accepted it when you weren't interested. We used the spa and apart from seeing one cockroach we were able to relax and have some lovely treatments and excellent prices, very relaxing!!
The food was very tasty however we suffered with an upset stomach for 3-4 days but managed to get over it quickly.
It was difficult being English as the majority of guests were either locals or French so the language barrier was there, but not impossible. It was nice with fewer English present as it made the holiday more foreign.

Room Tip: high room with pool view.
