“3 Nights Stay In February”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

PROS: The king-size bed is actually a SUPER-King! Very helpful staff, clean and very big rooms, huge pool, wow-factor lobby, separate pool for small children, free shuttle bus to centre of town several times a day, lots of options in breakfast buffet, well-maintained grounds. We liked being a little way out of the hustle and bustle of town (haven't slept so well for a long time). Shopping centre 5 mins walk away (inc. supermarket)

CONS: In our confirmation email we were told we'd get free mineral water at the hotel - not true. 5 Star hotels differ around the world, this is a lovely hotel but a little rough around a few edges - don't expect perfection everywhere you look and you won't disappointed. It's a 45 minutes walk to the main square, but the hotel offers a shuttle bus service to the Medina every few hours. If you get a taxi, don't pay more than 40-50 Dirum. We went on the "Chez Ali" evening offered by hotel - it was a bit of a rip-off. Also the hotel's Hammam was over-priced and for 20 mins (out of the 30 min treatment) I was left alone relaxing/ waiting in a room (get a cheaper/better Hammam in town!)

Room Tip: Request a pool view room in advance

It took 1.5 hours for the hotel to assign us rooms even though we had paid in full in advance. It was only after I put the front desk staff in touch with Hotels.com using my cell phone (since the hotel wouldn't make the call for me) that they finally gave us rooms. The door in my parents room's closet was broken and was never repaired in our 4-day stay. The same goes for the water temperature and pressure in both rooms' showers, which fluctuated wildly. The safe deposit box in my room was not working, though they did fix that. Room service was unbeliably slow, and service in the hotel's restaurant and tea room wasn't much better. When we complained about all this at the front desk they always refused to call the manager or anyone empowered to solve the problems.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

We stayed here for seven nights over Xmas. Hotel very clean and also relaxing and peaceful. The half Board meals were good and provided excellent vegetarian food. All staff were friendly especially catering staff. There is no night entertainment but there is a shopping centre at 5 mins walk which kept us entertained in the evening. The hotel provides a bus to the medina every two hours (sometimes unreliable). Hammam is not recomended at the hotel.

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
