Albakech House is very well presented, the rooms are comfortable and adequate, the communal areas are traditionally moroccan and welcoming. The best part of our stay was sunbathing by the pool and the breakfasts. The pool and gardens really makes the place and provides a peaceful relaxing place to read and sunbathe. The breakfasts were great with fruit, pastries, bread, coffee, freshly squeezed orange juice, yoghurt etc all included in the price. We ate breakfast sitting outside on tables in the garden by the pool every morning which was wonderful. There is a helpful driver that takes you into town when you'd like during the day and he also drove us to the airport when we left.
The drawbacks were mainly due to lack of information on things to do in the area. Since they only provided breakfast (unless you wanted to book food well in advance) there was no information provided on where to go nearby to eat dinner or lunch. Obviously you can go and explore which is what we did but it would still have been useful for some local recommendations. There is a shopping centre nearby with a supermarket in it which is useful although no fridge in your room to keep any food/drinks.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay as it was very relaxing which was what we were looking for but if you want more in the way of information and/or entertainment this may not be the place for you. The fact that it was located a short distance outside central marrakech wasn't really a problem as this is made clear on the website when you book. It was also definitely value for money.
