“Very average Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Gardens pool and communal areas were very pleasant, unfortunately the same could not be said about the rooms. Dated, worn and slightly grubby. Doors would not close to wardrobes, drawers toilet or bathroom. Whilst the bed linen and towels were clean the rooms definately needed a proper clean. cobwebs and dust in all corners, food remains behind drawers etc. Towels were changed daily but they were taken away early in the morning and clean ones not returned until 5.00ish so if you needed to shower or even wash your hands in the room during the day you did not have any towels. We had 2 rooms on the ground floor and the maids continually left the patio doors wide open after they had cleaned. On 2 ocassions we were out all day and realised the doors had been open from approx 9.30am until our return at 7.00pm. We told recepetion staff but it happened again and again. Not many english speaking staff. Food was appalling with no redeeming comments to make. Overall Marrakech is a very different place to visit and you need to make sure you have the security of a good quality hotel with english speaking staff. this is not the one.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Hotel is approx 10 min taxi ride away from central area; not much to see or do in the vicinity and not many shops or restaurants nearby either. A Macdonalds restaurant was close by (i read from a previous reviewer) but I heard it got burnt down recently, so nearest one is at the central train station, if that's what you fancy. Rooms, breakfast, dinner (if you're eating at the hotel) are not bad - price for dinner is approx £10 p.p. (drinks charged separately). The pool and gardens are excellent, that's the main reason I booked this hotel as I was staying with kids. Hotel has some other amenities such as Pool, Fussball, a very small gym (not all equip was working), Tennis, Table Tennis (net was broken when we were there). Taxis to Jemaa el Fna will cost between 30-50 Dirhams (depending on whether you need a small or Grande Taxi) - just make sure you agree a price first !

The location was not ideal-an hour's brisk walk from the Djema el Fna. The number 1 bus goes there for 4dh but took 45 min. The other option is a taxi but 50dh a time soon adds up. The communal areas (lobby, dining rooms, gardens etc) are all lovely, but the rooms could do with a little work. In ours, two of the lights didn't work and the patio door (ground floor) didn't lock, which would have been annoying had we been staying longer than one night. Breakfast had a good selection and was tasty; staff helpful.

The hotel was a five star and now it is four. The lovely gardens indoor and outdoors, fountains and pool are a true oasis in summer! Do not expect much of the food. Spacious rooms with balconies to huge old trees. Check out prices, it can be a true bargain!

Room Tip: If the heat allows you can find restaurants near by.

Hotel in general fine. Accessible. with easy access to the downtown and main attractions. However, food wasn't brilliant and service below average. Towels were scarce and the safe wasn't working. I couldn't find any room service menu. Receptionists, however, were polite and courteous. This is not a 4* start hotel.

The hotel was fine, the rooms were adaquate but tired. The air conditioning was not brilliant, there was no way to decrease the tempreture in the rooms. The TV /Fridge worked, no room service menu. The safe in the room only works by paying for a code at reception.

Most of the staff were friendly and helpful, especially Mohammed at the pool. Pool area was good, spacious, not enough sun beds - be quick to put out towels in the morning. The food for breakfast was fine if you remember you are in a forigen country! Evening meals expensive in the hotels compared to eating out. But you could get pizza etc.

Cheap to get to town if you wait for the number 1 bus opposite the hotel entrance 4 d compare to 40/50/60/70/80 d in a taxi. Bus drops you out side the square and you pick it up in the same place runs every 15/20mins or so. This worked really well, and it was nice to escape back to the holel and the pool.

Not much enthusiasum to help with tours in the hotel, we used IMZU travel agents in the new town - see the tourist information centre - new town. They were good. Morocco was an insight but not a place I will be going back to. Have fun
