For the most part, this was a great place to stay for the 4 nights we were in Marrakech. Very friendly and helpful manager at recpetion. Buggy with cases to the room, which was very clean and spacious, witha monsoon shower, love them, and possibly the comfiest bed ever! Mornings were so quiet, and breakfast was excellent, the only downside being the inability of the waiting staff to materialise with coffee, even when asked numerous times. This happened all but our first morning, it got so bad i grabbed the coffee and milk and did the rounds serving some other English guests too!
We ate in the buffet restaurant the first night, as it was late. Food was varied, but had NO labels, not even en francais! This was ok to a point, apart from when my girlfriend ate cow-brain! luckily for me, i'd prodded it and decided against it! The Morrocan restaurant was ok, but i'd had better tagines, in the old city, and for a seventh of the price!
The shuttle to and from the city was great, taxis back were only £10 if you wanted to stay out later than the last shuttle back. Trip to atlas mountains was great, and at £35 was worth it, getting to visit a Berber family and having wonderful mint-tea and bread/honey and an excellent lunch. Beautiful scenery and the guide was excellent.The city trip however, was a joke and a waste of time. This was due to the 'guide', who dropped us off at various places and said, 'take your time', before leaving us to wander, not knowing what we were looking at. Think he may be jobless now!
Bar prices were not extortionate, but still kinda pricey, £11 for a cocktail. Ask for the price list first, as XO Cognac is about £23 a measure.
