“Very pleasant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

6 of us stayed for a week in January.
Rooms were a good size , quiet & very well cleaned. as were the grounds & gardens.
Plenty to do in the hotel & facilities well maintained. We didn't have great weather for a couple of days - not nice enough to lie by one of the pools but kept ourselves amused with tennis/ boules / table tennis & archery.
Food was fine. Plenty of choice but some of the dishes were sometimes luke warm. The restaurant staff were helpful. Our favourite waiter would have a table for 6 laid out ready for us at dinner with ice buckets at the ready for wine & beer. Nothing was too much trouble with glasses being regularly refilled & plates taken away.
Coffee at breakfast was pretty rotten so I ended up going to the pool bar for a decent cup most days .

Taxis outside the hotel if you want to go into town. Negotiate before you get in - we were quoted 150 dirham but usually paid 70/80.
We organised a limo from the airport for the 6 of us. Driver was waiting for us in arrivals & collected us at the end of our holiday from the hotel. Cost for both ways was 40 euro. We also hired the same limo & driver for a day out. Highly recommended @ 80 euro . check oy their website luxury-riads.com

Only moan we had was with reception. only the cashier can take money for towels & taxes for checkout so it was a painful process

A good place to chill out, tasty food and lovely staff. The only inconvenient is that you can't receive friend not even for a coffee. Another thing, I think that it's a place for people who have already visited Marrakech before because there is so much to do in the hotel that you don't have enough time to visit the city

My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights while competing in the Marrakech Half Marathon and it really was fantastic. Admittedly we got a very good deal but we really loved everything there. The staff were very helpful (as long as you speak French!) The pool and spa were beautiful and our deluxe room was really spacious. I was able to get wifi in pretty much all areas tho' I think it depends on your provider as my friend couldn't get it at all. We found the food excellent with masses of choice and were very impressed with the red and white wine. All local spirits and cocktails are also included and free flowing pretty much all of the time. Because it was January it was pretty quiet and we were very lucky with the weather. Because it is Africa, it did become very chilly at night but the heating in the room worked a treat. It is slightly out of the way of the main areas but the hotel runs a free shuttle bus which was great. I thoroughly recommend this place for an out of season mini break.

Room Tip: We stayed in the 500's. It is close to the main pool, restaurant and spa.

Enjoyed my stay here. Rooms we're clean and modern and food was generally of a good standard.

For once in Morocco it felt professional.

the only issue was the distance. Expect to get a taxi to go anywhere and more so expect to get ripped off by every taxt driver in Morocco! Tip - Always ask them to use the meter, if they so no, inform them that you are aware that is forbidden by law not to use the meter. This was probably the most annoying thing about Morocco for me.

Room Tip: Massage wasnt great.

The hotel is attractive with beautiful well maintained gardens. It's located a fair bit out of town, surrounded by half finished, abandoned resorts. The rooms are nice, large enough and always clean. Bathroom as well is clean and there was always hot water. You have to pay 30 dirham/day if you want to use the safe in the room. I've never had that before. One other negative about the room is that the walls are paper thin! You can hear everything so hope you're not a light sleeper.
The food is very very average. There was always loads of Italian food (pizza, pasta) which is disappointing when you've come for good Moroccan food! Food is very repetitive. If you stay for any length of time I imagine you'd get very bored very quickly.
My advice is take the free shuttle into town and experience some proper food! I recommend booking the shuttle the day before as there is only space for 8 and it fills up quickly. It goes about once and hour.
It is mainly frequented by French tourists but the staff generally speak good English with the exception of the spa staff. I had a free hamman and was basically abandoned to find everything while the girls gossiped over tea. Poor.
There's entertainment which is cringe. It's supposed to be a five star resort, not butlins. I hate enforced fun but perhaps people with younger children will enjoy this. For me it ruined it a bit as there was no escape in the evenings for a quiet drink. (only one bar).
On the plus side they are generous with the alcohol.

This hotel is beautiful, amazing garden areas, lovely pool and the room we had was fantastic and air conditioned. Where this place fell was with the food primarily, often undercooked and definitely avoid everything with cheese in it. Secondly was the overall atmosphere, while great for the family and I was there with my family so it was great. The place does have a butlins feel to it. Secondly was the taxi the hotel booked for us which was about 5 times as expensive as the rank outside the hotel, we really did not expect that from the hotel itself.

I wouldn't visit again but my experiences of morocco unfortunately are marred and that is more to do with feeling that everyone was trying to rip me off as opposed to the hotel itself. Best idea is a short family break here, 4 days and it will be a fantastic trip.

Lovely hotel -only two floors high, built in traditional Moroccan style in magical gardens and courtyards. Big rooms. Great staff who were always cheerful, friendly and very helpful. Huge variety of really good food for all tastes at all meals - different every day and spoiled for choice! - snacks available all day. We went in January and the weather was wet but we had free access to the spa, pool and the hammam (I wonder if they'd taken notice of Maryanne's review?)which was amazing. We didn't see any night club and found it very quiet and relaxing. There seemed to be a lot of facilities for children situated to one side so that they could be safe and wouldn't be disturbing anyone else.
We walked outside the walls but it was in the middle of nowhere with nothing but roads around - best to get shuttle bus or taxi into town.

Room Tip: There are no lifts up to the first floor. If you don't mind the stairs these are more private a...
