I am writing this after 5 days at the aqua fun hotel and has been brilliant so far. We arrived on Wednesday breezing through passport control at Marrakesh Airport The Reception Staff welcomed us to the resort and a very nice smiling porter showed us to our room. It was perfect...large an spacious.
We loved the food, there was something for everyone as the restaurant has a different choice of food each day and for for each meal time. European, Pasta Moroccan and Indian and Chinese. If you are a pie and chips man you may be disappointed, but for most people you will find something that suits you everyday.
The local drinks were all great, very nice beer, variety of spirits, wines and cocktails and the The bar staff were brilliant, very friendly and will even make your own custom cocktails if you ask them. Best of all, we never had to queue for drinks
It was not so much a Hotel but a resort with large spacious grounds meaning you where never on top of each other. The hotel aqua park is situated next the hotel so ideal if you have older children with excess energy. If you want it a little quieter use the pools away from the Aqua Park as the music can be a bit loud. We never had issues getting a sunbeds and tended to go to the pool near the aqua park because our rooms were in the 200s
We went into Marrakesh on the 10am bus when we arrived the square was not full. Beware of the many people who ask for money for photo's at they can be very intimidating if take one and refuse to pay. Also beware of friendly henna woman who if you say no or “later” take hold of your hand and wont let go continue to quirt a design you don’t want and badger you for money. Do not drink or eat anything in the market square as I had an orange juice at a café and was very sick within a few hours.
The hotel was cleaned constantly and I have never seen such an extreme cleaning regime and I am sure that it continues with the hygiene in the kitchens and everywhere. It may be claimed a 5 star in Morocco, but it is 4 star on European standards.
The evening entertainment is a duo in the bar by the reception, various animation team shows ,karaoke and occasional snake charmer and belly dancer shows typical of most all inclusive hotels. There was a night club as well but we did not use it, so I don't know what it was like.
