Pickalbatros hotel


I had previously booked the Albatros Garden Hotel through Thomas Cook for four nights in July. However, I recieved an email from hotels4u saying it is closed for renovations and they have moved us to the Pickalbatros instead. The reviews for this hotel are terrible and as a young couple we're not particularly interested in what seems to be a family water park.

Ive spoken to hotels4u about changing to another hotel but was informed that we would have to find one ourselves as theyve already gone to 'so much trouble' to relocate us even though it was them that let us book a hotel that was closed in the first place and theyve just moved us to the sister hotel.

Just wondering if anyone who has experienced this hotel can advise whether it's worth booking somewhere else or just putting up with it.

Thanks in advance.

get a refund and move elsewhere - plenty of time to find a good deal since you arent going until summer

the hotel you were going to stay in was very central (Hivernage) but the Pickalbatros Aqua Club is out of town so not a good option if you are wanting to see the sights and explore the souks etc

I'd insist on a different hotel or as mentioned get a refund and book somewhere else. It doesn't sound like the kind of place you could put up with so why put yourselves in the position of hating your time in Marrakech because of the travel companies mistake.
