The first impression is of space and the structures of the buildings and the shallow ponds. The whole resort has a very peaceful colour scheme- terracotta buildings, aquamarine tiles and swimming pool , manicured grass and raked gravel. All very understated. The rooms and pavilions are all built around water features. We had a pavilion with its own pool and loved having our own entrance, spacious room with large terrace and Minzah with water fountain. We particularly enjoyed having breakfast each morning on our terrace. Often in room dining is less good than restaurant meals- here the standard of private dining was if anything higher. Our chosen breakfast became Bircher muesli, cereal or pancakes, yoghurt and honey, fresh fruit platter, excellent bread and pastries , fruit juice or strawberry smoothie. Very good coffee.
One evening we had the special private dining barbecue and would very much recommend it; it was theatrical with out being over the top and after starting with Moroccan filled pastries the seafood and fish and then meats were all very good. The finale was a delicious tarte tatin and mint tea .
Our experience was to enjoy the lovely setting and if we wanted anything that was not obviously available to ask; on request an excellent selection of teas and kettle was provided -rooms had coffee machines as standard but not tea making.
The resort is about 20 minutes outside the city and the hotel has an excellent fleet of cars with drivers for trips into Marrakech.
The standard of housekeeping was extremely high with rooms being fully serviced twice per day. Laundry was efficient.
