“Nice short stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012

Great resort for a short stay experience in Marrakech. Out of the main drag of the Medina which is very nice and relaxing, and a mini bus is provided every two hours if you wish to pop into the chaos that is known as the markets! Lots of fun but nice to come back to the resort and relax by the pool. The staff are helpful but not overly friendly, and the breakfast buffet wasn't particularly interesting nor appetising. Room service prices are reasonable. The best asset is the beautiful cool swimming pool (of which there are two large ones but only one open during our stay as it was shoulder season) and also the fitness centre (of which there are also two - the larger one at the back of the hotel is much better, though the staff not forthcoming in providing info on it so you have to find your own way there!). The rooms are very large and very clean, nice big bath tub, tv is not a flat screen, small chairs and table outside your room to relax which is quite nice. Rooms are quiet, though we could hear the child next door playing, and on that note as per any general resort there does seem to be an abundance of children around so if you can't cope with that it might not be the right place for you. The room has a strange smell which is not too pleasant but you do find yourself getting used to it (until you leave the room and come back inside). Probably not what I would describe as your ordinary five star hotel (would expect more) but is a good stay for a reasonable price.

Looks great from the outside and has two huge swimming pools. BUT!!! the staff make you feel like an inconvenience, the restaurant food is bland and boring and basically the place is very slowly falling apart. It was obviously built to a high 'visual' standard but behind the paint it is cheap. Also a long way outside the city so unless you are there for the annual touring car Gran Prix it is not a lot of use.

Room Tip: If you want to visit the city this is not the hotel for you.

you should really not expect more for the price. The rooms are large. The bathtub is large. The in hotel restaurant and room service is cheap, so you can spoil yourself. The staff are nice. Carrefour superstore is very close by (3mins walk) and a good place to buy some souvenirs also. Overall, I liked Morocco and its people. I had little to complain about the hotel. It has a nice spa, but I did not use it. Take a room facing the pool. Hopefully you will also be able to pick up wifi from your balcony. For less than £3 a couple can have their breakfast brought to their room in style.

Room Tip: facing the pool or very near reception

Just came back on 14/02/2012.
Nice hotel with polite and helpfull staff,food is ok, the Breakfast is very nice with many selections but not many varietys on the Dinner also same on the deserts there arent many selections.Rooms are kept clean and tidy,its only 10 minutes drive from the town centre which is well coverd by free hotel shuttle every 2 hours.
Negative side is-
Therearent many childrens activites apart from the large swimming pool which is ungoable due to the cold water.The indoor pool is chargeable at 130Dirhams per hour which i found to be totally out of order as we dont pay that much anywhere in England,may be the management should look in to this and make it free during the winter months

Our room was clean and warm, with comfortable bed and clean bathroom. The view from our room was quite poor (some road) but we stayed there only one night so we didn't care.

We had lunch there and it was really great but breakfast was rather average (only sweets, sweet bread and salads, no "normal" bread for those who don't like too much sugar).

The area around the hotel is definitely not interesting and it's located quite far from the Jamaa el Fna and the Medina but there is a free shuttle bus.

Free wi-fi internet works in the lobby only if you stand close to the reception desk (there is no place to sit).

We stayed at this hotel from January 25th - 29th, the hotel is a couple of miles out from the centre of the city, which is a good and bad thing. It is a fair distance to walk every day and taxis in the evening can sometimes get a bit pricey, depending on your haggling skills! The plus side about being out of the city centre however is that it is quieter and away from all the madness of Jemma El Fna.

Our overall stay here was very good, when we arrived we got greeted and taken to our room, the page boy took our bags for us and did not request a tip (although I gave him one anyway). The rooms are spacious and very clean, the bathroom had a separate bath and shower and again was fairly spacious, our particular room had a terrace which was a nice place to relax.

There were only two bad points about the hotel (which I am probably being overly picky about)

1) It was very quiet, as in there were very few people staying there, I must have only seen 7 or 8 other guests the whole time I was there, every time I looked into the restaurant there was never anyone eating there, same goes for the bar.

2) Nobody spoke any English, a few of them knew "hello" but that was it, although I found Marrakech in general to be like this, but not really a bad thing and certainly not something which should put you off staying here.

All in all we really enjoyed our stay in this hotel and it was a nice place to sleep after a long and tiring day of the hustle and bustle which is Marrakech.

Room Tip: If you would like to have WIFI in your room and not just in the lobby, as for a ground floor near re...

I´ve been in this hotel i May, and prices dropped rapidly down (some special sale?) anyway, for price about 30GBP per night, it´s really valuable. Hughe nice decorated rooms, nice view from balcony, quiet place. I wouldnt say it´s 5 stars, but for that price it´s my recommendition to stay.
