“Great Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

Shortly after we booked this 4 night break the reviews on tripadvisor were terrible and we were quite concerned about what we had booked and were quite anxious about the holiday. After returning from the Kenzi Club I can clearly see that some people who have reviewed this hotel aren't living in the real world and aren't taking into consideration what they've actually paid to stay here.
When checking in we were upgraded to a suite for our wedding anniversary. The suite was lovely with a huge bed, a separate sitting room, large bathroom with bath and walk in shower.
All the gardens and the pool area are all kept neat and tidy. The larger pool with the slides seemed to be more for families so we stuck to other pool which seemed to be an older crowd. The pool was quite cold but was quite nice when it's so hot.
We found that in the restaurant there was always something to eat. There was always three or four tagines to choose from a night some nicer than others but all edible, Pizza's are cooked fresh on site. Most of the desserts looked different but seemed to taste the same. We did book to go in the Moroccan restaurant but chose not to bother when seeing the menu.
All hotel staff were friendly and pleasant although some seemed to struggle slightly with speaking English. We didn't really bother with entertainment in the night so I can't comment.
Arranging the free shuttle to Marrakech was easy which we did while checking in. We had a taxi back to the hotel which cost 100DR.
The taxi from the airport cost 200DR. We did try to get lower but they were having none of it. The taxi from the hotel to the airport only cost 100DR.
My only issues with the hotel was the 3 euro a day charge for the safe and the 150DR (ABOUT £13.38) deposit for each pool towel which I thought was a bit excessive.

For value for money you can't go wrong with this hotel.

Booked a break away as a secret hotel with lastminute.com. and was a little disappointed when I found out it was this hotel because of some of the photos and other reviews. My daughter and I had a very pleasant surprise at the beauty and setting of the hotel's rooms when we first arrived and our experiences during the rest of the break couldn't have been better. The staff were obliging and very friendly, the food plentiful and good quality. As I'm not much of a meat eater the buffet was ideal, with made to order omlettes and pasta dishes, wonderful morrocan food and delicious pastries every day,as well as an extensive choice of other dishes. The Morrocan restaurant was well worth the extra euros, with an excellent waiter and a very good local musician. The entertainment team produced some amazing evening concerts, were extremely friendly to everyone and had incredible amounts of energy, The whole package could not have been better., I just think the English reviews and the pictures on trip adviser do not do it justice.I will definately return when possible.

Room Tip: Our room was ideal, heard someone say they weren't happy with the location of their room as it w...

We have just returned from a 4 might stay here and we had a wonderful time, and would recommend based on our experiences.

The hotel arranged a 30 Euro pick up from the airport for us to save us the worry on arrival, and that was really helpful, but having more confidence by the time we left we got a taxi on the return journey for half the price.

All the staff at the hotel were really friendly and helpful. Couldn't fault them and there were no language issues. The welcome on arrival with a drink etc was most, well, welcoming.

Food was fine, though it was quite similar each day, but there was a lot of choice and it was all good quality. Drinks were fine also, so no complaints. It is an international all-inclusive buffet so its never going to be gourmet. We didn't try the Morrocan restaurant. I have eaten my body weight in doughnuts, mind.... mid afternoon snacks highly recommended!

Pools and leisure facilities were excellent (albeit ever so slightly cold!). Played tennis and equipment was really good. Shame indoor pool was extra, but we were given a free sauna as part of our deal.

Rooms were spacious, our 2 children were on sofa beds in adjoining room, so we all had our own space. Beds we comfy and bathrooms excellent. Can't fault them - and housekeeping arranged nightwear differently each day which was a nice touch. Shame we had to pay to use the safe in our rooms though... we stayed in Jacaranda (600s) and it was nice and quiet.

Shuttle bus service to the city was excellent - on time and always available. The hotel is 15mins journey out of town and we found that to be ideal as it was good to get away from the madness of the city to stay in our little desert oasis.

Took trip to mountains as arranged by the organiser at the hotel - again the service was excellent. We decided late on Sunday to see if we could go on Monday at 9am and despite the lady not working (day off) it was all sorted smoothly.

In all, amazing city and a really good hotel that delivered everything we wanted. Thanks to everyone who helped make our first visit to Morrocco such a wonderful one...

After reading some of the reviews about this hotel before we traveled, my wife and I were both apprehensive about what to expect, however, we were both very pleasantly surprised! On arrival, the reception staff were very friendly, the porters were helpful and friendly and the Animation staff were really great. It is predominantly a resort for French tourists, and along with Arabic, French is the main language. But once members of the Animation team realised we were from England, they made an extra effort to make sure that we did not feel left out in any of the events or instructions during activities that were carried out. On a daily basis, activities such as archery, shooting, volleyball, football, table tennis, tennis, French bowls, aerobics and dance classes were available. In the evening, shows were put on by the Animation team which were of a very good standard. The rooms could probably do with a lick of paint, but were very clean and looked after daily. The swimming pools and the grounds in general looked lovely and clean. The food may have been a bit repetitive, but tasty nonetheless. And drinks were available until 11:30pm. There was a shuttle to the medina on a daily basis. We stayed there for 7 nights and we are grateful for Mido, Robin, Dora, Mia, Zak and the rest of the team for making it a memorable holiday.

Room Tip: The Riad Jardin D'eau which is in the 900 range are the best...close to the pools and restaurant...

Our first holiday with our three month old baby! Lovely hotel, room and grounds. Super friendly and helpful staff from luggage guys and reception to the chefs, waiters and the car service guy. Immaculately clean everywhere and our room service cleaners were lovely, they even folded our baby's clothes. Food was pretty good for a buffet with good choices throughout the day, though we would suggest arriving on the early side rather than leaving it too late. We were given a room close to the restaurant which was good for the baby. There is a little animal corner with goats and ducks which was cute. Lots of activities to entertain everyone with enthusiastic and genuine staff. We aren't all inclusive people but were generally impressed. The only negatives for us were that they charged for the indoor pool, hammam and gym. We would pay for treatments of course but the rest should be included.

I got back from Morocco this morning after spending 3 nights in Kenzi Club Agdal Medina, with 7 of my girlfriends. This is a hotel I would definitely recommend, from the rooms to the staff and the food provided. Loved the space and modern decor of the rooms and bathroom, the staff were so friendly and helpful, and the food was varied and delicious. I would defintely return in the future.

Having booked the hotel in a hurry we had apoplexy when we checked on TA and read all the bad reviews!

We arrived with our hearts in our mouth expecting to have a terrible time.....but that could not be further from the truth!

The ladies on reception were helpful and nice, the room was clean and spacious, the food great with an abundance of choice and plenty of sun loungers with no need for a fight!

If you are English then is it French centric, well sure. Did that matter to us, well no, if you want English don't get on a plane and go abroad!

Are there some negatives yes -
- Wifi in rooms is poor and not available by the pools
- Sun loungers are the most uncomfortable in the world but at least there are plenty.
- Cocktails in the pool bar are pretty lame

We booked the 'meet and greet' service off the airline web site for £33 return but we gather the local taxi's would have been cheaper as the journey time was less than 10 mins.
