Fabulous stay here in July. Hotel is breathtaking, as I'm sure are the villa's in the grounds. Two hotel sites, one with a casino. The hotel grounds have long winding walks along palm tree lined paths so it was surprising to take a long stroll without actually leaving the hotel one night! Every now and then you come across one of the hotel's gated villa's.
The hotel is only a short walk from both the old town and the new town.
Two hotel pools (one is much better than the other although both absolutely amazing for a dip from the hot weather). Pools are manned by people asking if you would like any refreshments or food from the cafe, which is brought to your lounger.
The little boutique shops tucked away on site were very pleasant and I got two great paintings from there.
Breakfast each morning was extensive and stunning. Fruit, yogurts, cooked breakfasts and continental options and pastries. So good and very well catered for.
We also visited the spa for hammam and massage. Hammam was unceremonious (it was my first time and I wasn't expecting it to be as rough!), but massage was lovely and in a lovely building just next to the pool.
Tip - people do expect tips in Marrakech so take a couple of extra notes and be prepared to have to ask for change back if you order pool service.
We're hoping to visit again, this time going with a big group of friends to use one of the villa's with a private pool :)
