LABRANDA Aqua Fun Marrakech

Reviewed September 3, 2012

hotel was excellent. The staff are very friendly and welcoming.Everybody was very helpful and there were a lot of activities to do with the entertainment staff all day and during the evening. The range of food is good and we always found something that we liked (from a fussy eater!). The aqua park is very enjoyable for kids and adults and we would definitely come back again but for longer..

Spent 6 nights here in Aug. Very nice hotel. Nice grounds and swimming pools well maintained. We had a very comfortable family room. The air con worked really well in such heat. Food was fab. So many dishes to try if you eat meat. Never got bored of it. The hotel has a water park which we all loved and had great fun in. They have a good animation team but some evenings there was not much on so got a bit boring. Used the spa on site was ok but nothing special. Overall would book and stay here again.

I came to aqua fun club with my family in august for 10 nights and there were a party of 6 of us. When we arrived at the hotel we were welcomed by Mohamed from the animation team..he then told us everything we needed to know about our hotel and the facilities in and around the hotel! He was very helpfull and gave us a warm welcoming! I dont know why there are so many negative comments on the hotel as there are no negative points at all and the negative comments should be ignored! For the people that book this hotel they need to see for themselves not listen to the comments on here. There are lots of activities to do with your animation team!Which entertain day and night. The animation team were fab and were always willing to help you! They do lots of aqtivities like table tennis..water polo..aqua gym..darts..football..volleyball and many more and a fantastic aqua park! Activities at a night in the night club with dj Mohamed. The food had no faults to it and if you wanted certain foods the chef would cook them for you,without a proplem! Food was served all day all thanks to the food and beverage manager Mr yasser.

Thank you to all of the staff and management and also a big thank you to the animation team Mohamed,Salah,ismael,taha,maha. We will be coming back soon and have made some great friends!!

Hi being a 13 year old girl I was bound to have a good time. After reading some of the tripadvisor reviews I wasn't looking so forward to this holiday. We reached the hotel in the evening and had a few problems with our room (as avi b said-my dad). As im not a very adventurous eater I stuck to plain foods like pasta and rice and these were nice but I lived on these for all seven days. We had multiple issues with our safe and the bell boy Fatallah came at least once a day to our room. He was a big help. Me and my brother made friends with the animation team but unfortunately only did this in the last few days of our stay. There was always something to do...like they had activities like water polo in the pool, table tennis, football and much more so there was pretty much something for everyone. In the evenings in the piano bar they had dancing for kids then the animation team would just entertain until about 2 am. As the week went on, I enjoyed the holiday more and more and the waterslides were good too. I was pretty much in the pool the whole day and food was being served almost every hour of the day. (breakfast,late breakfast,lunch,ice cream,crepes,dinner,late dinner) and drinks were available all day. One bad thing was that the cleaners were very noisy in the mornings - from about 9am they were cleaning outside our rooms and the mops kept banging on the door so it was like someone was knocking on it every 2 minutes. Outside was very slippery as cleaners were always mopping and I slipped many times. Overall I enjoyed it a lot as the people who worked there were very nice...i would go back in the future :)

Our party consisted of 3 adults and 1 teenager. We arrived on the 16th August 2012 staying for 7 nights on an all -inclusive basis. 1st impressions were not good, no one to assist with the luggage and a “cold” check in with no welcome greeting or smile. We booked 2 rooms and were allocated rooms 4103 and 4105, both on the ground floor of one of the blocks. Room 4105 had no safe and the balcony door would not lock and was secured via a door chain, a DIY temporary fix. Our check in time was 8pm ish so we highlighted the problems to the receptionist and went to the restaurant for dinner. At 11.30pm we returned to our rooms to find nothing had been done. A bit disappointed I returned to reception and asked for someone to accompany me to the room. It just so happens this was the manager. He arranged for someone to bring a safe to the room and asked the handy man to secure the balcony door by drilling into the frame screwing it shut. The noise and all the commotion woke the neighbour and her 2 young girls. We asked to be relocated and after much deliberation they found us a room on the 1st floor, which also had a faulty balcony door. I found a cockroach in our bathroom which was removed by one of the cleaning staff. Not sure if I know the answer to this but with goggles on I can see clearly underwater but I found that this was not the case with almost all the swimming pools. Could it have something to do with the chlorine levels? A generator of some sort disturbed my sleep for a few nights so worth noting when it comes to your room allocation if you are a light sleeper which I am not.
We also had some issues with the safe not opening / operating as it should do. Futallah the bell boy was extremely helpful and nothing was too much for him.
Anyway after a rocky start all went well and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
The hotel probably acquired its 5 star status because of the waterpark facilities, which are vast and would suit almost everyone. I have been fortunate enough to stop in many 5 star hotels all over the world and if you think you have booked a 5 star equivalent to “our” 5 star hotels then you will be disappointed.
There are only 2 bars open on the evening and both have 1 person serving so there is always a delay when you go to the bar.
As per some of the reviews I read the food is repetitive but only because there is so much on offer all at the same time.
This is my true version of our stay and hopefully it helps you in your decision making process which is difficult because other people staying at the hotel at the same time as us stated it was the best place they had ever stayed.

Room Tip: A tip we did not book any transfers and paid 400 dirhams from the airport. They will argue with you...

Hi all,

We went on our hols in late July 2012. When we approach the resort it looked fantastic and the staff here very friendly. We were given our room, which to be honest was severely bad ! The view was over the staff area and the room was bad. However after discussion with the friendly team behind the reception they moved us to a pool side room... fantastic, also the beds were so comfortable, the best my wife has slept on (she has a severely bad back) and the beds catered for this !

Staff - Fantastic, I cannot fault any of them. Everyone was really kind and helpful. The animation staff were great.
Facilities - The Waterpark is absolutely fantastic. It was empty even at peak season, who there was not waiting for any of the rides. Safety was number 1 priority for the staff. The Hotel was very very very very clean... the team of cleaners really worked that extra effort to keep the resort in top shape. All the sunbeds were working and in good order, however the normal putting towels down early morning happened after 4 days of being there. It is a shame that the mini golf was not working, the kids would have liked to play on it. It also seemed that some of the bars and restaurants were shut down. Although it says there are loads of eating facilities, there is only 1 restaurant.

Food - I really wish I could say, it was fantastic.. but it was not. After 1 day the same food kept coming out, time and time again. I understand they must cater for a large amount of people, but the quality was v poor and tasteless. From day 3 onwards, we just ate salad and fresh baked arabic bread... everything else was not good.. The times were also very very strange. Breakfast was OK, lunch was 12-2 but after that there was nothing to eat until 7pm, a few pastries at 5pm but no ice-cream from 1pm (very strange).
Drink - The bottled water was in large supply, if you wanted a bottle it was everywhere to get it.. great ! Beer was also fantastic, very strong but very taste. The local vodka etc were OK, nothing to complain about.

Overall, it was a good holiday, very clean (inc the pools) but the food really let them down..

Room Tip: Ask for a family room around the smaller pool, or a pool side room.

We travelled with family of 12 people and we absolutely enjoyed ourselves, i would comment on the food,great choice of food but not tasty. as i was expecting moroccan food to be delicious. The kids have plenty to do and loads of entertainment in the evening and the kids mini disco was fabulous. People are lovely but most of them dont speak english which was hard to communicate with them. overall great hotel and staff. would recommend this hotel for families with kids.

Room Tip: Ask for a family room as it is very spacious with kids.
