This Club Med has a beautiful setting, the rooms have a great Moroccon feel and are lovely and rustic. You can hear the call to prayers in the morning which is beautiful. The food was excellent & the staff were friendly and fun.The facilities are great but you really need to get involved to make the most of your spend & stay. If you don't speak any french you may have some problems at this resort (I'm from Australia but speak bad french) but you'll get by. It is sometimes difficult in activities e.g cooking class was in french so you have to learn by watching only. Not all staff speak english but you're in Morocco so you shouldn't really expect that anyway.
There is another club Med in the heart of Marrakech but the rooms there are TINY and I think that La Palmeraie is much much nicer. The great thing you can do is when you go into the city use the facilities as the one in the city. I used the spa - it was magic.
Although I love Club Med, Morocco & particularly Marrakech is a place where you should be getting out and experiencing the local food and culture. Club Med is like a bubble that you don't want to leave because you're so well looked after and relaxed.
I would reccommend this resort particularly to families or couples on their honeymoon perhaps, but do it at the end of your Moroccan trip so that you don't miss out on all that this beautiful country has to offer or at least make sure you get out of the resort.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Marrakech is the Southern pearl, full of charm, mystery and bustle, at the crossroads of the Sahara and the High Atlas. The Club Med Village, set in Morocco's oldest palm grove, reflects the intimate aspect of the medina, fostering its way of life with its gardens, refined cuisine and warm welcome. The Marrakech architecture combines baked bricks, tadelakt, red ochre and colourful zellige, to create a relaxing haven to which you can enjoy returning after a stroll through Djemaa el-Fna square. ... more less
