Spent a week here at the beginning of March. The weather was amazing. I was not expecting it to be so good. Clear blue skys everyday and really warm in the sunshine. It was not too warm however if you wanted to go sightseeing etc...
The pool at the hotel is freezing. I did manage to get in it once and it was actually very refreshing. The grounds are beauitful and lots of choice of sun lounger in the gardens which I preferred to right by the pool. You will notice that people will put their towels on the pool sun loungers really early and then go elsewhere for a few hours or not even use them. This is not unusual as it goes on at most hotel but I still don't understand why people do it.
Took a trip to the Atlas mountains which was amazing. So beautiful up there and quiet compared to the madness of Marrakech.
We went into town on a few occasions and really enjoyed it. Took a hamman and a massage at a gorgeous spa and general mooched about going into the souks.
We do not usually do all inclusives and this holiday was a bit last minute. I did find the food repetitive but appeciate that the hotel do a really good job considering how many they are catering for. There was always a new dish on in the evening and they seemed to cater for most tastes. I was a bit dissapointed that there was not more authentic morrocan cusine as would have liked to have seen more tagines. We did eat in the restaurant one night which we booked in advance. The main was nice but the starter and dessert was still a buffet which I had really had enough of by the end of the week. I know alot of people have mentioned that the food was amazing but maybe thats because they have other all inclusives to compare it to. Both my partner and I were quite ill for 24 hours while we were there so that did put me off the food also. Breakfast was by far the best meal of the day with fresh orange juice available and freshly cooked eggs and pancakes.
Our room was nice. We never had any special towel decorations in our room but it was always spotless. Staff were ok. Some bar staff in the pool bar/restaurant could be a bit miserable sometimes but all the animation team were friendly enough. Lots of activities to do if you want to.
Did not like the fact that you could smoke in certain areas and the bar. There is a downstairs bar which is smoke free but thats more for entertainment.
All in all a good hotel. Not 4 star, more like 3.
