“Charming room, nice food”
Reviewed November 5, 2009

Went in November, it was quite cold so we couldn't enjoy outdoor grounds (swimming pool or other activities). Because of this it turned out to be rather boring, but the room was charming with oriental character, original bathroom, small living room and a patio. The club is pretty with fountains and a big bar, rather pleasant. The food was good and unlike many clubmeds, there are waiters around for cutlery, serving drinks (not food which is buffet), etc. The spa is nice for the hammam (large and with nice decorations), but not for much else. Marrakech is not so close but there's a clubmed bus that will take you there at certain hours. Went on an excursion to the Atlas mountains. We found it expensive and really not interesting. I suppose we would have enjoyed the holiday more had we gone in a warmer time of the year.

Stayed November 2008, traveled as a couple

We spent a week at this club med. Although I would agree with some previous reviews that the rooms were fairly simple, they were well equipped. I would perhaps recommend bringing your own hairdryer, though. The rooms were spacious, and we had an interconnecting room for our teenage kids.

I found it very relaxing to be able to walk around the "village" without carrying much about because everything was included. The food in general was good - although perhaps a little repetitive, we had a fantastic beef wellington on one of the theme nights. We also took the opportunity to eat one evening in the club med just off the main square in Marrakesh, and also had our final meal in "el Kebir" which has table service.

The shuttle was useful for visiting the town - we used it on three days.

The pool was wonderful -large and not too busy. On our final morning I got up at 6am for a swim before we got the suttle to the airport at 9am - I was the only one in the pool and it was a perfect temperature.

I found the staff helpful and almost all of them really enthusiastic.

My second trip to Club Med. & our group were not disappointed. The service provided was excellent & the food was even better than our trip to the Algarve last year. The local organiser was very helpful and ensured our sales meeting was a success. Very good value for money & a local organiser from our arrival at the airport until we went though departures at the airport. Cost wise far better value than most UK venues. Plenty of local trips & loads to see & do. I'd be tempted to go back for a holiday.

The location/facilities is amazing nice but it is not always gold what's shining... They sell this as a 4 trident but is is not more then a 3, so be aware about it!!!

Rooms are nice and big enough, just make sure you get one on the higher level/floor if you want some privacy.

Main restaurant: from the hygienic point of view its a shame!!! The dishes are dirty, everyday! After a couple days we all began to feel sick..
Bottle of mineral water are not available at the restaurant but only at the bar... Pizza and spaghetti, I can get them in Italy!... Moroccan food? Seems to be the same menu everyday..

We do recommend the spa, although very pricey, we thoroughly enjoyed the treatment.

This is NOT the place to bring your childs! Nothing at all is offered to them and in the small swimming pool which is the only place your child could spend the day, they are not welcome because this is a "quite place".

Not enough personnel is available on the bars... so be prepared to stay in a cue...

Towels: get them the morning... Either there are none available or the towel “office” is close!!!

Below the line:
This place could be a dream on earth with a different management, but do NOT bring your kinds there...

went here with 450 colleagues. July so off-season for Marrakech as very hot (>40 degrees)
room was nice. Facilites were good but expensive.
Extremely strong smeall of sulfur int he reception which they tried to overcome with some scent which made it even more disgusting.

Event was good but mainly due to external team brought in to make it so.

I took my parents and sister to La Palmeraie in March, looking for a nice base from which to explore Marrakech and also enjoy the various sports and activities that come with a Club Med holiday. I was not disappointed, the local staff are very friendly, the food and drinks superb and the room lovely. My only warning is for fellow brits whose linguistic skills are limited. The French club med reps did not speak much English and any lessons/ coaching was all in French which was somewhat disappointing, so yoga and tennis etc were not viable for non-French speakers. However gym teachers did their best to translate where possible and were superb. So if you don't speak French, i'd go to Mark Warner instead

In a great need of holiday me and my daughter spent a week in the hotel. Once we got a hand of the system of GO's, we really enjoyed every minute of our stay. The Spa is bringing the relaxation one can only dream of. The rooms are clean and very spacious.
The security level is more than standard which gives a very secure feeling needed when on holiday. The friendliness of the GO's was beyond expectation and the entertainment was quite professional.
We had a wonderful time there and once home we immediately booked a room for our next holidays.
In a word, magnificent !
