If you want a 7 day break with a good standard of accommodation and friendly service all round, Kenzi is a very good bet. Be prepared for it to be cool in the mornings and at night if you are going now or in the next 2/3 months. Don't take loads of shorts and sun dresses you wont be able to wear them in the evenings, think smart casual jeans, trousers with a warm jacket, However by noon most days lovely for sunbathing and it does get hot, I got heat rash on my second day. We had the place to ourselves. There are plenty of lovely areas to sit around the hotel with a good choice of loungers and comfy chairs. We didn't use the spa, we had a complimentary 30 minute steam room ticket which we didn't use. The rest of the spa facilities did have to be paid for including the pool. The prices seemed OK but it was so nice outside we didn't bother. The hotel and its grounds are kept beautifully clean and tidy by an army of workers. Gardens are very well planted and there are also lots of quirky statues and traditional lamps tastefully situated in the grounds. The all inclusive package gave a wide choice of food of a good quality. Having been on a Royal Caribbean cruise in summer where they really do spoil you I couldn't say the standard or choice of food was as good but even if you don't like exotic food plenty of pizza pasta options, and always at least 4 types of tagine. You have to remember this is Morocco not London. The wine was moroccon but quite drinkable if you like a pinot or something dry. The beer both bottled and draught was local, not an expert but I enjoyed it. Plenty of premium soft drinks ie cokes, fantas etc. cocktails a bit on the sweet side and I did not see any recognisable brands but they tasted fine. If you do the Fantasia trip wear warm clothes as its mainly outside. Recommend trip to Atlas mountains. Be prepared to haggle on everything, even the taxis and if you can't face it just shop in the airport shops when you leave where you can get everything that's in the souk for around the same price. If you want to get rid of your dhirrums you wont be able to spend them in the airport duty free, they only accept euro and we would recommend that you use euros for everything, easier to get a better rate at home and the Moroccans seems to prefer it too. Don't let anyone drape a snake over you or put henna on your hands when you are in the Medina. They will say its free and when you walk away will hunt you down!! I have visited Cairo and other muslim countries like Turkey and Sudan. I found the Moroccans pretty laid back with a good sense of humour and for me they gave the holiday another dimension. Get out of the hotel and do some trips, you will get a taste of the country. Hotel is well situated and a taxi into town costs about 50 drm. As it was a quiet time we never had a problem getting on the shuttle bus but it does finish around 1830. We will definitely recommend this hotel and Morocco to our friends if they want to recharge their batteries during winter and see somewhere colourful.
