This is a very pretty resort, clean, tidy and a great location. the grounds, pools and general condition is a very high standard.
The food is high quality and as buffets go exceed expectations!
There are a lot of birds hanging around the buffet and dining area but hey it is outside and adds an element of fun.
Daily free bus to medina and the souks and sites - very good.
Bar staff range from slow to slower but hey it's a holiday!
We stayed in a garden room and it was lovely, good bed and high state of repair a few dead bug stains but really what do you expect.
My reasons to 3 star is that it isn't quite a 4 star place.
The staff really don't have great linguistic skills - my French is basic but ok and I struggled. The reception staff were very poor and also continually short changed us on purchases - not as a theft I might add but just because no change and never remembered after.
The musical numbers are generally fun but rarely any English spoken.
If your happy just chatting with yourselves then I would highly recommend this place as its worth the trip but please don't if you don't have basic French - and that means more than bonjour!

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Marrakech is the Southern pearl, full of charm, mystery and bustle, at the crossroads of the Sahara and the High Atlas. The Club Med Village, set in Morocco's oldest palm grove, reflects the intimate aspect of the medina, fostering its way of life with its gardens, refined cuisine and warm welcome. The Marrakech architecture combines baked bricks, tadelakt, red ochre and colourful zellige, to create a relaxing haven to which you can enjoy returning after a stroll through Djemaa el-Fna square. ... more less
