I guess when you opt for half board in cities that are saturated with hotels and popular with tourists, that you cant afford to be too picky? We stayed four nights in the second week of Dec.
Bedroom- Wardrobes were dusty and bathtub sink seemed blocked. We complained the first morning after we arrived and nothing was done about it.
Breakfast is continental which in itself would be fine but there was not meat, the cheese was dry, croissants too dark/crispy. There was boiled and scrambled eggs each day.
Dinner was a disappointment. There was often soup, as well as a meat and fish dish, Salads seemed to be recycled from each day.
You have to pay 60D for use of the indoor pool and jacuzzi and that is only for 30 mins- as a result there was hardly anyone there. Shame as in the winter it is too cold to swim outside.
We did the City tour and were taken into what we were told was the largest pharmacy in Marrakesh. Well, you are given a 40 mins or so demonstration on herbs/essential oils etc and given bags to purchase goods. dont be forced into buying as you can get products for three times less that the prices they quote. I bought my Argan oil from a women's cooperative whilst on the Ourika Valley tour. Liked the valley tour as we were at least given the option on which shops etc we wanted to stop at. Ibrahim the tour guide was also very chatty and you learn alot about Morrocco and its people in general.
Beware of taxi drivers trying to rip you off ask at the hotel what a reasonable price is to pay and then haggle.
Lots of cats all over Marrakesh, if you dont like them then dont come here!
Smiley, helpful waiting staff
