“Better Than Expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

Positives:
- We had a lovely clean room with a mezzanine which we were honestly not expecting because the hotel is so cheap
- The rooms are well looked after and the cleaners were very friendly
- Hotel staff were great- they arranged for me to be seen to by a doctor because I was unwell and a member of staff even went to collect my medicine for free
- The pool is big and clean, but it gets very busy

Negatives:
- Your room will not have an iron!!! I have travelled to many places and this was the first time I have ever been in a hotel which doesn't provide an iron. I was totally shocked. We had to pay for the laundry service, so take a travel iron if you’re able to. The laundry service is cheap but they didn't iron my clothes properly which was annoying.
- Everybody speaks French, so if you speak English it can be a bit of a struggle
- The dinner and breakfast at the hotel is bland
- You only have wifi in the foyer
- The excursions are really expensive to book through the hotel- if you go to the souk, you will be able to haggle and get excursions at a good price

Advice:
- Do not pay more than 20 dirham’s to go to the souk and do not pay more than 40 to go to 555… The taxi drivers will try to charge you a lot more. If you walk away, they will most likely ask you to come back. If they don’t, just ask other taxi drivers until you find one which agrees. You are in Morocco so you can haggle with anyone for anything.
- Some nice words to learn: Yes= Aiwa or Na’am/ No= La/ Thank You= Shukran
- You will have to pay local tax when you check- out; this is very normal and it’s cheap so no biggie

Enjoy you holiday!! :) :)

2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

No of the staff speak English. hotel has 4 restaurants but only one of them is open and included in the board which is a buffet and the food is very bland. Wifi is only available in the lobby or bar even so the connection is very weak. Items of clothing were stolen from my suitcase in my room, when told reception she just laughed. Lastly the lady on reception is extremely rude and charges you for everything, first thing she said to us before even saying hi is "you pay tax now?" and I made a 20 second phone call to a local excursion company and she asked me to pay 20 DRHM which is like £1.60, it would've cost less to use my own phone. Even though it's cheap it's not worth it. Only nice things about it are the pool and the cleanliness of the rooms. Definitely not a 4 star hotel.

This hotel is a good deal for relaxing stays, even though some upgrading could be considered. The pool in the park is great. The bungalows by the pools are a good arrangement for families and groups of friends, in a quiet part of the domain.The buffet restaurant is very good, but not the breakfast, too basic. The only problem is the lack of pool deckchairs. The air conditioning in the rooms works very well and can be controlled, a necessity in marrakech from may to october.

Room Tip: top level rooms (ask for the balcony) or the bungalows behind the front line by the pool

Our first impressions of Marrakech were not good as it took an hour to get through passport control! Once at the hotel we were shown to the room and settled in. Room was nice but no view. Dinners were self service with variety of meat and fish dishes. Breakfast was hot or cold with pastries and breads or cereals. There were also pankakes which were very nice with honey! We didn't eat at the other restaurants as they were not in the half board deal. The pool area is lovely with nice gardens and a snack bar. Wifi is available in lobby or bar. A good hotel for the money.

Very nice hotel with comfortable rooms. Close to the old medina. Area towards the east of the hotel can be a bit daunting but overall not bad. Bar is expensive but there is a sidewalk cafe up the street where drinks are a third of the price and you get to watch the people walk by.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the front of the building for a better view of the harbour

My girlfriend and I were in Marrakech for a five day break for my Birthday,We decided to stay an extra day so we looked on the net and found this hotel,a cheep price on a last minute booking site but on arrival we're put into a room that did not match the one we had booked,we were given twin single beds pushed together not even may up as a double but two singles.i went down to reception to ask about this just to be told that's all that was available by a young man with a sarcastic attitude and smile,he continued to say we will sort you out a better room next time you come,there won't be a next time ,the pool area was nice,the deal was full board,the breakfast was nice lunch and dinner let it down with not much variety

The bedroom was spotlessly clean and the bathroom very clean and all in working order. The beds were comfortable. Breakfast was plentiful but a bit boring - only one sort of juice, limited fruit, one cheese, one meat. But there was plenty of it. Overall, the hotel seemed rather drab - an excess of red and brown, even the artwork on the walls was fairly colourless. Staff went about their jobs diligently but without much enthusiasm. A smile or a 'good morning' always goes down well but neither were forthcoming from the staff here. The hotel was adequate; I would stay here again if I had to but it is far from being a favourite.
