Overall, if you want to visit Marrakesh specifically and if it’s available on a cheap deal, its worth it.
A riad would be a better experience I am sure, but a Travelzoo deal got us half board and an extra night stay compared to the cost of booking things separately.
Hotel is in good location (walk to old city / Medina in 25 minutes or a 5 minute taxi)
Rooms were fine, we had two small double beds between us. Very clean and everything worked.
There was two nights out of five where we could here really loud music playing till past 2am. Not sure if this was coming from the hotel or neighbouring ones, but annoying all the same.
If you are thinking of booking half or full board here, I would strongly say don’t bother with the evening food.
The restaurant has a selection of 20 or so items, in self serve containers, so items can be there for a long time, getting cold, many of which are already well over cooked.
There are a couple of cooking stations, so if you like to know how and when your food is cooked, look to see what’s being served there!
We found the breakfast fine, omelettes and pancakes made in front of you, selection of fresh rolls, cheese, fruit juice and tea/coffee (along with other cooked items that didn’t appeal)
The lunch was average, highlights were mini burgers and chicken pieces, again cooked in front of you.
The evening food though, was not worth it, dry as hell chicken, fatty and bone heavy beef, the salad bar was ok.
Some of the restaurant staff look at us a bit funny, seemed overstaffed and they didnt really want to be there.
Unless you came with massively high expectations and you are happy to use the hotel as a base to visit and experience Marrakesh and beyond, this hotel is fine.
