“A Joke”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

That they pretend to be a 5 star is outrageous, more than laughable. It has a bus station style breakfast area. The pool is average. The Moroccan salon in the lobby is spacious but dull. No one even considered lounging in it. The manager was insulting and they lied to me about the prices. They quoted me half of what they charged me. The parking lot downstairs is awkward, unsafe. There was barely any service and that is usually the mark of a 5 star. The whole deal was a 2 or 3 star experience. The lie makes it a 1 star. Thieves!

Room Tip: Go somewhere else.

The hotel is very nice.
nice pool, nice lobby, and some Moroccan style public areas.
on the other hand though the infrastructure is old and needs some renovation.
the safe didn't work (batteries were simply empty), the bath had some defects that looked like bugs, the bath curtain didn't fit, we had water leak in the toilet.
I also have a problem with the food that was served. we had 4 breakfasts and 2 dinners. we expected Moroccan food, at least at dinners, but were disappointed. the food was more or less western, and very average. the toasts machine didn't work in most of the days, the fresh vegetables finished fast and it took a few minutes to refill, and it was the same for the buns.
I couldn't say we came out hungry, but when we came to Morocco, we expected the food to be part of the experience

the room we had was quite big and comfortable.
As for the water leak we had in the toilet, I must say that we informed the hotel about the problem at about 20:00, and left for a dinner outside. we came back a few hours later, the problem was fixed the towels were replaced with new ones, and we were very happy.

if you end up going to this hotel, ask for a pool view room, we had a view to the road, which is not inspiring at all.. the view to the pool is very nice.

Room Tip: look for a pool view hotel. check the safe, it probably doesn't work, although nothing was stol...

This is NOT a 5-star hotel - more like a 2-star. I can't say the service was poor, as there actually was no service at all.

The breakfasts were vile and the dining room filthy with food and bird poo on chairs and the floor in abundance.

The whole place smelt of stale cigarette smoke, the pool was freezing and there were children running around everywhere.

This hotel does not know what it is trying to be or who it is trying to cater for. Whatever it is, it is failing miserably.

We stayed here for a conference and then a few extra days for fun. The hotel has an impressive lobby, good pool and spacious rooms. It has all the makings of a great hotel, but the service is terrible. Check in took about an hour, with one guy trying to do several things at the same time and not letting the other staff do anything, it was the last thing we needed after taking 4 flights from New Zealand to get to Marrakesh! The breakfasts were good, but again the service was really slack as they kept running out of things at the buffet and no-one ever seemed to notice. I don't think we got good service from a single staff member the entire week we were there. We were on the 5th floor and the wi-fi didn't reach that far, so we had to sit in the lobby (as everyone seemed to be doing) in order to get internet. All in all, it does the job but it is definitely not worth the money.

Room Tip: I would advise the upper floors as the noise from traffic goes on all night.

In my opinion the service and the quality do not live up to 5 star , even 2 star have done better. Wifi at best is intermittent. Had to buy batteries for safe.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

We stayed here for four nights. It's a bit of a walk from town, but a taxi is only 20DN (about £1.50) if you negotiate the price before you get in. The breakfast was really good - I highly recommend the Moroccan pancakes which are made to order with honied apricots. The room is a typical hotel room and adequate. We got a room overlooking a busy road and it was quite noisy. Our friends got a room overlooking the pool which was much nicer. For a five star hotel the linen could be of higher quality and the bed was a bit too hard for my liking - however for the price (we paid about £50 per night) it was good value. The best part was the pool - ideal for soaking up the Marrakech sun. We didn't use the spa facilities. Was good to be able to rest and relax after a hectic day exploring the city. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool - they are quieter and have a better view
