Just back from riu palmeria

Hi all,

Just back from a wonderful week at riu palmeria! Was a bit worried about travelling to Marrakech with two kids but they absolutely loved it especially the trip to atlas mountain. The city has some great friendly people it was a wonderful experience nd can't wait to go back.

Any questions about riu palmeria please do let me know

Yes there is a kids club and the animation team work very hard though the shows are a bit cheesy. There is a local music/ dance troupe occasionally plus some easy listening live music in the early evening.

The kids club was great the staff are excellent it's the first time my boys have actually enjoyed going to the kids club on holiday and wanting to go the whole day. The staff really try and include everyone.

They have one for younger kids up to age 8 and then for older kids. In the evening they have a very short mini disco for kids in the lobby just before 8.30 for about 10 mins. The entertainment in the evening is cheesy but the animation team do try very hard. They also have a quiz at 9 in the lobby.

Hope you enjoy your trip

Thanks for your insight, sounds like a great trip. Did you book excursions through the hotel and how did the costs compare? I've been looking at a walking tour of Marrakech and the Atlas Mountains but can't decide whether to arrange now or when I arrive.

We're travelling at the end of September.

Hi we booked only one which was the atlas mountains but we booked it through a recommendation on trip advisor it was great, so sorry can't compare prices we just wanted to make sure we had someone who spoke good English and would be reliable.

If you are gong trough Thomas cook there is always a rep there giving advice about tours etc. we had booked ours all separately.

We also booked our taxi transfers before hand too again with a recommendation which was great as no negotiation upon arrival.

Hope you have a great time it's a wonderfull place
