This place is awesome for a weekend getaway from the busy city. The rooms are big and clean. We stayed on a weekday where there's very few guests so the surrounding is very quiet and peaceful that you could loudly hear the birds chirping outside. The balcony overlooking the pool and beach is so cozy you would want to live... More

The resort is located by the lagoon and is nice and breezy. The staff are quite welcoming and friendly. They have a nice pool and quite a few bbq pits. We stayed in the chalet a few times and at the apartments as well.

They also have a backyard where we can do our own barbecue. Awesome place to chill by the beach side.They also have a nice pool and an in-home restaurant. However, we did... More

Was a very good resort Good for spending time with family,friends on weekends.the pool provides good swimming facilities for us.and the restaurant available has a variety of good cuisines.The only disadvantage is there is no proper beach recreation facilities since the waves of the water are blocked.

The resort needs updating, the restaurant as well. Location is nice on the beach, but quality is not on the same level as the prices. The seafood platter for 200 dirham is much. They serve a nice glass of wine though, just as nice as in the wine shop.

Barracuda beach resort is a good hide out away from the city life very relaxing, the good thing is they let you do your own barbecue. The staff is friendly and the service is quick, the place was under renovation hence there was a little noise but it was fine after 11pm. There is a huge alcohol shop which is... More

Hotel is best and recommended for short trip with families and friends. They offer two bedrooms and most of their rooms have balconies. Ideal place if you’re travelling with families or friends. Place is quiet and relaxing and good place for barbecue. Though it’s a beachfront, you won’t be able to take a dip in the beach as it’s not... More
