I went twice to this hotel, everything is excellent: rooms, pool, restaurants, staff, activities! Either you are young, senior, with ou withour children !
Animators are doing great job, from 7:00 am to midnight, you'll find them everywhere, and they are the same for the night show!

Food - Lots of variety 3 different restaurants from what I can remember, buffet style. Italian restaurant was very romantic. You have to book a day in advance. On my actual birthday they gave me a cake and all the chef's/waiters sang to me which was really nice - oh and I got some free champagne too :)

Rooms - Very nice, separate toilet to the bathroom. Flat screen TV, little couch and nice sized bed also a small balcony.

Pool - amazing & there are special sunbeds which are cushioned (if your lucky enough to get one) there was a point where there were lack of sunbeds to people but they brought extra stacks out which is very rare for hotels (we visited in Summer so most busiest time)

Location - Had a free shuttle which was amazing! Dropped us off right near the markets. There was a pond or two around our apartment block which I didn't like because it meant lots & lots of frogs (I am a typical girly wimp) but none of them ever did jump out you could just hear lots of them croaking.

Entertainment - Was very good! Lots of people missed it so it wasn't extremely busy like normal all inclusive's (in the summer too!). We were very entertained and the crew were so friendly and such a laugh, they really put effort into their performances. It was also fun to watch the little kitties playing around near the pond while you ate breakfast :)

The hotels architecture was amazing around the lobby area. I seen people using laptops etc so pretty sure there must be wi-fi. The staff are really nice and helpful, on the departure day they gave us a room to shower after check out and let us lock our luggage away so we could enjoy the last few hours there. The Thomson reps were also very good with advice and sent me a card for my birthday.

Overall I enjoyed the hotel very much it was extremely good value! the only downside was that the local's weren't extremely friendly (personally I don't blame them) and shopping in the souks was very very stressful I hated haggling so stayed towards the edges where everything was priced with stickers.

Room Tip: Try to pick an upstairs so you get a private balcony as downstairs balconies are all linked only blo...

We stayed here for a week in November. We have been to several Riu all inclusives in the Canaries and Cape Verde and have never been disappointed. We introduced 4 friends to Riu for the first time and overall we all agreed the holiday was excellent value for money with the opportunity to experience a different culture.
Good points :
Helpful , friendly and cheerful staff
A regular free coach to Marrakech - recommend a night visit (we took the 18.00 bus and returned on the 20.00) and a half day trip if shopping but be prepared for hassle
Plenty of choice in food - both speciality restaurants worth a visit and if you like salads, the Morrocon salads are excellent.
The wine may not be a good Sauv Blanc or Rioja but is very drinkable
Lovely well kept gardens
Free wifi in reception (often there is a charge)

Not so good points:
Too many flies around the pool area which seemed resistant to any sprays
Would have liked a net curtain in the room for privacy during daylight hours
Lack of nicely cooked fish or seafood on the menu

We have just returned from the best holiday in 30 years. We stayed at the hotel from the 12th to the 26th November and didn't want to come home. The hotel is located 20mins from the Medina but puts on a curtesy bus throughout the day for those wishing to venture into town for the amazing sights, sounds and smells in the souks and squares. From the moment you arrive, nothing is too much trouble. The staff ALL work hard but with a seemingly effortless ability whose whole aim is to ensure you get the best from your holiday. The animation team try to include everyone in the various activities which is a great way of meeting and mixing with other guests, but they are not pushy if you say no. Restaurant and bar staff are there to attend to your every wish. Do take care with the food, it is sooooooooooooo good and after two weeks we were struggling to fasten some of our clothing. There are two specialist restaurants, Italian and Moroccan which are both included in your package at no extra cost but the Moroccan especially books up fast so reserve your evening of choice as soon as you can.

Room Tip: We were in room 4003 which is by the pool ideal for this time of year but may be noisy in the summer...

We stayed at the hotel for a week this november, we were after a cheap week away, with a bit of winter sun and some culture thrown in.
The hotel pretty much met our expectations but definately didn't exceed them. To be fair our last couple of holidays have been to all inclusives in the carribean (4 and 5 star) so this place felt lacking in a number of areas in comparison.

Good points
Large bedrooms
Nice gardens and grounds
Spacious pool area with no lack of sunbeds whilst we were there
Helpful and friendly staff
Shuttle bus into town, it ran frequently and took only around 20 minutes

Bad points
No waiter service in the a la carte restaurants
The pool was freezing
No drinks in the rooms except water
Drink selection in the restaurants
Food fairly repetative, similar food at most mealtimes despite a couple of themed nights.

In summary it was ok but nothing amazing!

If the hotel management read this I'd like to suggest a couple of things. Firsty we'd have liked an additional wine list in the restaurants as we would have paid extra for a nice bottle of wine. Also in the rooms there was only one thick curtain on the window which was very effective in blocking out the light but would have also liked a thin voile type curtain to let in the light and so that no one could see in.

Just returned from week at this hotel. Very pleasant reception area with plenty of seating. Bedrooms are spacious if not a little basic. I would advise trying to get 1st floor room as we were originally on a ground floor room which was very noisy. Pool area is very large but cannot understand why a 4+ star hotel has no heating in the pool. This was positively baltic and meant it was not being used by 99% of the guests. Additionally, towels can only be collected from reception when it would have been far more sense to have them available by the pool area. There is no waiter service by the pool. Food in the main dining room was good but never great. The Moroccan restaurant was also buffet style and was very average, selection was ok but most dishes lacked flavour. The Italian restaurant was also buffet style and food selection and quality was good. It would have been nice to have had an a la carte restaurant to choose from even if this was at an extra cost. There was no bar waiter service at any of the bars in the hotel - this should go without saying in a hotel boasting this star rating. The range of drinks available were of poor quality and in all the restaurants you can only choose from beer, red/white/rose wine or soft drinks.
The complex is fairly large and is just off the main road coming out of Marrakech and whilst every effort has been made to break this up with the gardens, pools and walk ways we still felt it was like a posh prison camp as you couldn't really go for a walk just outsde the hotel unless you like walking down main roads with nothing to see.
All in all this hotel could have been so much better. It is clearly a 4+ star hotel based on the facilities and not on the service/food quality.
I know some of the points above are a little trivial but as this was supposed to be a premier 4 1/2 star resort i was expecting a much higher standard.
This resort may be a good choice for some but we personally will not be recommending it.

Room Tip: Choose second floor.
