My boyfriend and I chose this hotel for our first holiday together, and absolutely loved it. We weren't sure what to expect after reading some of the reviews but we had no negative experiences at all. The place itself is beautiful, very clean and very well kept. There are always staff busy keeping the hotel looking good. We had a room above the Tagine restaurant with a balcony looking over pretty much the whole complex, which we agreed was probably the best place to stay here, the back rooms overlook pretty much just wasteland so we would have asked to change had we been given one of them rooms. The pools were lovely - can't understand people moaning about them being too cold - thats exactly what you want to cool off in the burning sun! Equally, the aqua park was awesome, brilliant slides which were well staffed - make sure to ask them to give you an extra spin when they push you off in the dingys, it makes it even better. 2 pool bars open most of the day so never too far to walk for a drink, the beer was good for all inclusive, no watered down spirits etc. The food could be quite samey but there is a lot of variety so if you don't like the look of the food in one restaurant just go to the other! Fresh pizzas made daily while you watch and the restaurants are open long enough for them never to be busy. The staff were very polite and helpful, apart from the reception staff who didn't speak much English so could come across as quite miserable. The animation team in particular were fantastic! Always rallying people up for events such as water polo, dance classes by the pool, yoga, football etc, and they will assist you with anything you want to do outside the hotel, we did the Marrakech by night tour and a camel ride, both organised for us by Ismail, one of the team.They like a bit of banter and are very funny, work their nuts off there day and night and will help you out as much as they can. Being half term we were expecting it to me rammed but there was always a bed available by the pool and wasn't busy at all. They are building a new block so I expect it will be busier in the future, but although we were aware of them working it caused us no disruptions at all. We had nothing stolen from our room despite not using the safe, and regularly left our stuff by the sunbeds to go off to the slides. Evening entertainment is what you would expect, children's disco followed by an adults disco/bingo/the usual but it is what you make it, and we had lots of fun. We reccomend visiting Bo-Zin, a restaurant not far away, very chic with a modern vibe, quite expensive but as it was a special occasion for us we're glad we went, nicest restaurant either or us have been to. All in all we had an amazing holiday, no complaints, and will definitely return to this hotel in the future!
