My wife and I plus our two teenage boys stayed here from 07/08/13 - 14/08/13.This is a lovely relaxed and informal hotel set in well tended tropical grounds complimented by attentive friendly staff. We were very grateful for the thoughtfully supplied fruit cocktail drinks on our arrival from the airport and then we were shown in to dinner without having to ask. We purposefully booked this hotel to get away from the increasingly negative behaviours of some of our fellow Brits and their offspring and I am glad we did. Yes this is a French dominated hotel.It was so good though to be amongst friendly and polite fellow guests with their well behaved children which is probably why the general atmosphere is so relaxed. The language barrier presented us with no problem despite our smattering of French. Our two air conditioned rooms were kept spotlessly clean with fresh towels every day by our cheery pleasant cleaner.The TV in our room had two great movie channels which kept our boys entertained when the heat got too much.....reached 50 degrees one day. I highly recommend the quality of the food here with local dishes being of exceptional flavour especially the various tagines. Surprisingly for all inclusive the unlimited soft drinks are supplied from the major brands eg Coca Cola, Fanta, Sprite etc. There is a bus that goes to Marrakech from the hotel which we used and found the city a fantastic experience.We actually found that the market holders were friendly and we enjoyed the bartering and they did accept our first "No" unlike other places we have visited.We arranged our day trips through Ahmed of "Clickexcursions" who's company had transported us from the airport and left us with a list of excellent value trips. We chose a trip to the Atlas Mountains and also a Camel Ride which I would say are both a must enhanced by the professionalism of this company. Nightime at the hotel is confined within it's perimeter walls as La Palmeraie is an isolated location reserved for hotels and the rich however there are local taxis that wait outside the main gate...pay no more than 120dh though for a family taxi to Marrakech. Entertainment is obviously in French but you can still join in and have fun if you wish.
