“A fantastic resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

We stayed for a week at this resort almost 2 years ago, but after a recent trip to a terrible resort in Egypt (non club-med) I thought I should point out how good this resort actually is.

We actually stayed in 2011 and as it was out first package holiday as with out little girl who was just 2 at the time, we had nothing to compare it to.

First of all the best thing about Club Med here is the food. Compared to the rubbish served at non club med holiday locations we have been to, it is amazing.

The variety and standard of the food, considering it's being made for a lot of people is superb.

The attentive waiters bringing you drinks when you sit down for a meal are excellent.

We would come back to this resort again now as our daughter is older and would enjoy the kids activities better.

The kids club was FANTASTIC especially the junior club. Hamza that worked in the junior kids club was particularly brilliant! All of the staff were friendly and welcoming. And even though many people spoke French, almost all of the staff adapted to the English speakers. The drinks (especially the mocktails were delicious and the package deal was fantastic. The kids can go off and do their own thing in a safe enjoyable environment whilst the adults enjoy the weather. All in all an EXCELLENT family experience.

Went there for a week in April 2013 with my mum and my three children (aged 3, 6 and 8) and we all had an amazing time. The weather was perfect, the hotel is located in a beautiful park, very green and well looked after, with olive and jasmine trees hundreds of years old.
The rooms are good and the restaurant is absolutely delicious.
The sports facilities are excellent, the range of activities is great for all ages, the swimming pool is beautiful too.
But my special mention goes to the KIDS CLUB, which is absolutely outstanding. My 3 year old went to the Petit Club (2-4) and did arts and crafts, horse riding, mini tennis, swimming, dancing... The kids club has its own heated swimming pool. He loved the treasure chest hunt and the clown hunt! My 6 year-old girl did archery, flying trapeze, trampoline, swimming, horse riding, dancing and performed in some very good shows at night - with professional lighting, sound system, choregraphy etc. All free of charge! She made some very good friends and adored her GOs. My 8 year-old did similar activities, plus tennis, football and more. We hardly saw him between 9am - 9pm, he had all his lunches and dinners with the Kids Club, made some good friends too and cried when he left! He loved his independence in a completely safe environment and thoroughly enjoyed the wide range of high-quality activities at their disposal.
All the GOs (=coaches) in the Kids Clubs are outstanding, really fun, energetic, gifted, caring and responsible. Well done Davy, Cedric, Kenza (Kids Club 8-10), Hakim and SouSou (Mini Club 4-7), Imani and Sarah in the Petit Club (2-4). A huge thank you for making the children's stay so unforgettable, we'll be back!

Just got back from a fantastic week at La Palmeraie. Not sure who had the best time the children or us. All the staff worked so hard to make sure everyone had a very happy time. My two joined the mini club for 8-10s and the 11-13 club and we hardly saw them! There were so many activities and they made lots of friends who they were very sad to leave. I was a bit worried before we went that there would not be other English speaking children for my two to make friends with but there were lots.

Whilst the children were at the clubs or hanging out with their new friends we were able to have tennis coaching, use the gym or have a quiet chill at the adult pool (there are lots of other activities too if you want).

The rooms are clean, comfortable but if you are used to five star hotels particularly in the middle east then you will find the bathrooms in particular more basic. However we didn't feel this was an issue as you really do only need them to sleep in and they are very spacious particularly if you go for the interconnecting option.

All in all we would definitely return although we may try another of the Club Meds.

Room Tip: We had rooms on the upper level of the bungalows which we think were preferable. Did try to book th...

We had a great week at La Palmeraie. The kids had a great time and were kept very busy even doing the Harlem Shake organised by the wonderful kids club staff including Davy. Food was up to Club Med's usual standards. Rooms were a bit basic but had everything we needed. Really helpful english-speaking staff, Samuel, Christina and Esther in particular.

I went to ClubMed, hoping for the best. I made a lot of new friends, despite the fact that most of them left early, and we played a lot of sports together. But the main reason for the fun, was all due to the G.O. Hamza. He was the one who encouraged the ones of my age groupe (10-14) to come with us and enjoy the ClubMed to its best. He is very kind, and has a good sence of humour. He always smiles, and laughs at my jokes, even if they're sort of stupid. Instead of following the program of all the activities, he does what we want, letting us have as much fun as possible. I still can't describe all that he has done to make me happy. Thank you Hamza!!!!! (And Salad)

We went to Marrakech where we stayed in a rental but decided to splurge and buy a one day "ticket" to have access to all the Club Med amenities.
We did not know it was actually possible but it turns out it is: for 60 euros/adult and 20 euros/kid (+4 years old), we had access to everything in the club (pool, lunch, free drinks, ice-cream, afternoon tea buffet). The kids could also had access to the in-site activities but it was 30° in Marrakech so we all preferred the pool.... or the pools: the kids pool where floaties are free to use for the kids, the adults pool for families and the "zen" pool (not for kids).
We also had clean towels to use.
The club is beautifully located in the Palmeraie, the pools are clean, deckchairs are available and the staff is very helpful.
We really spend a beautiful day with the kids and would definitely splurge now and then if a nice Club Med is nearby (not so often though as it is quite expensive)
