5 days before spring break of the kids we decided that we needed to unwind at some place sunny with a pool. Little could we imagine that we would stay in one of the best hotels ever. It is small, but not too small and the design is just fantastic. All rooms are beautifully decorated and have charming bathrooms. The hotel itself is located in some sort of oasisjust outside of Marrakech. There is a beautiful garden surrounding the hotel in which you can find double beds to rest on (sheets are changed every day) and benches where you can sit and enjoy the view. The staff is helpful and friendly and listens to suggestions. Originally we had booked a pool suite, but upon arrival it appeared that the living room where the children would sleep and the master bedroom were not connected which meant that the children had to cross the courtyard with pool to come to us. We didn’t find this save as the children cannot swim. The staff immediately showed us alternative suites (with pool and without). In the end we chose a suit without a pool as you do not really need this in March. I can imagine it is great to have a private pool in the heat of summer. On the other hand, the hotel has a fantastic common pool which had my preference over a private one. Some things to keep in mind: the hotel is relatively far from Marrakech which was a bonus for us as we wanted peace and quiet. If you intend to visit Marrakech every day you might want to consider staying at this hotel a couple of days to unwind and a couple of days in Marrakech itself. The hotel does provide a free shuttle service into Marrakech in the morning and at the end of the day. During the busy season there is always a BBQ lunch at the pool. The lunch is fantastic but your bill can add up if you stay in the hotel for a week. Also you don’t always want a full BBQ lunch but just a small snack. Children pay half price but ours only ate 1 or 2 small sausages for lunch which can then still end up pretty expensive. When we commented on this to the staff they immediately ceased charging for the children’s’ lunch. If you stay at the hotel with small children dinner in the restaurant might be too late for you (restaurant opens at 19:30 hrs which means food on the table at 20:00/20:15 hrs which was too late of our kids after a day of swimming). However, there is great room service which is also served by the pool or in the game room! This meant that on sunny days our kids ate by the pool and on cooler days we would have a drink in the bar or in the game room whilst the kids ate. This way you don’t always have to eat in your room which is not a punishment either as the rooms are so nice. And o yes, breakfast on the terrace with view over the garden is just amazing. Freshly squeezed orange juice, eggs to your liking, home made yoghurt. Bliss! Finally take some treatments in the hamman. They are wonderful! All in all we had a great stay and I can highly recommend this hotel.
