Myself and two friends stayed at Palmeraie Village in a 2 bedroom selfcatering accomadation,(D4) it was large living room bathroom separate from toilet,the maid came in only if you were staying longer than 4days with clean bedding and towels,the apartment was fab but the smell from the drains nearly knocks you out lol we kept putting bleach down was ok while you were in but once you went out and came back later it was the same maybe 'cos we were ground level but you overcome it,all the pool areas were clean and tidy and plenty of sun beds (with no cushions on so a bit hard)the reception staff,security guards hotel staff all very helpful and polite.If you are arriving after 6pm make sure you take fresh water with you as there is nowhere you can get any till nxt day we were lucky reception staff gave us a bottle of there own so we was able to make a nice cuppa,if you get a taxi to Marrakech square befor 8, oclock its 100dirhams after its 150 or its best to get a return price befor you go and just phone the driver when your ready to return to the complex,it is best to change your money when you get there better exchange rate Hotel Ally in the square is good,the complex is quiet as its a bit outside of Marrakech but would Recommend, its a large complex we were always getting a bit lost but there are signs(just us a bit thick) lol.There is a beach about an hour and a half away we never visited that but heard it was good,we arranged for a taxi to take us to Agadir for the day and went to the beach there and taxi driver knows good non tourist places to eat,it took 31/2 hours so you have to leave early for three of us it cost 500 Dirhams each return thats only £32.75 you could get the Supratour bus from the bus station in Marrakech our taxi driver was called Mustapha 00212661422084 he speaks french better than english but we managed he is very polite he stayes in his car till your ready to go else where but he knows Agadir.Don't for get to barter right down watch out for the beggers and enjoy your holiday.

We travelled as 4 mid-twenties girls looking for a fun budget holiday. We had not been to Marrakech before.
The resort was refreshingly clean and tidy after reading worrying reviews, with only one (dead) cockroach seen on our whole trip. It was a nice, pretty resort on the whole, with basic but very busy pool facilities and lots of kids. The rooms themselves were OK, the kettle didn't work but other than that it was more than adequate. It's a gated complex so we felt fairly secure, although one of our windows wouldn't close which we weren't comfortable with at all and fixed by ourselves.
It is however in the middle of nowhere and a 15 minute taxi is needed for everything if you want to leave the resort. Most of out money went on taxi fares. You will need to leave the resort as the one restaurant is terrible and overpriced, and there is no poolside refreshment service, all vending machines are also broken. The only location benefit - Nikki Beach, which is definitely worth a visit, is only a two minute walk down the road.
The MAJOR DOWNFALL of this resort were the staff. We failed to find a single receptionist who spoke competent English, and our pigeon French wasn't much help. We were given conflicting information by staff a number of times- being told we were able to use the shuttle bus for the supermarket one day, then being charged for it the next. Being told we could use the pool facilities at the nearby Golf Resort for free, someone else told us we weren't allowed at all, and then we were also told it was thirty pounds each to spend the day there. It was very frustrating and no one had a clue what was going on. The Golf Resort however- where we did spend 3 (free) days by the pool, is exceptional in comparison and definitely worth visiting if the reception staff allow it on that day!

General Marrakech extras-
Taxis were a massive rip off as expected, with locals paying 1/10th of the price of tourists- if you stand your ground on price (we usually offered a third of their initial price- which is still a rip off) and walk away, they accept your offer every single time. As 4 Western girls we had expected to be hassled in the city, and it exceeded expectations. Even when completely covered at night time we felt intimidated as local women are rarely seen after dark- it was not a threatening atmosphere but neither was it relaxing- so we took taxis everywhere! Once inside resorts, restaurants or bars it was fine.
There are hundreds of people desperate to be your 'guide' for the week- not just locals on the street but lifeguards, taxi drivers and waiters too. You don't need a guide at all, don't be conned, even for the Souks and tourist attractions - take a Lonely Planet travel guide and grab a map from reception and you're sorted. There are also people who will outright lie to you- we were told when getting out of the taxi at the Souks that we had to cover our shoulders and that he would take us to a scarf shop so we could buy something appropriate- complete rubbish. That being said, there are some lovely and genuine local people, just use your common sense!!
Avoid Marrakech during Ramadan if you're wanting to experience any nightlife!! Clubs don't open until midnight, and get busy around 2pm- we did have some good nights out at some of the main nightclubs but many places were empty.

Overall I would say we got what we paid for, but wouldn't stay again!

Went with a mate after hearing good things about Marrakech. On arrival at the airport in Marrakech theres the expected rigamarole of haggling down the ludicrous tourist taxi prices they try and rip you off with. We spent about 15 mins at that. The apartment was clean enough and comfortable, some ants but nothing to really moan to much about. The staff were friendly and corteous enough. The place is expensive though, its an effect of French Paris prices rubbing off on their former colonial enclave. Frankly prices are ridiculous. £5 for a beer. Food supermarket shop was expensive. Also theres no point going during Ramadan, if you like a drink, clubs shut early, place is pretty quiet. Big square was ok. Ramadan still didn't stop my phone getting nicked by a worker from my apartment terrace. So be warned!

i went with my family. we booked two apartments between us. they were clean. The stay was amazing. The staff extremely helpful. Only thing it was slightly far from the city center. The taxi will cost around 100 - 150 dirahms approx £13, each way.

however I did previously arrange for a free shuttle to the city with the hotel before we went. They did honor it after written proof presented.

we stayed on the ground floor apartments net to the pool. The pool was amazing and clean :) very happy.

They are sooooooo many brits there lol

Booked lastminute.com hol for the family. My daughter chose Marrakesh, so we thought why not.
We went in February, so it was cooler - we were v lucky, had great weather and larked about in SWIMWEAR! the village apartments are clean and basically equipped. There is an expensive shop up the road (10 min walk) which stocks everything. Staff are nice.
As it was out of season, there is not much about, but we wanted to chill and we did. Take a guided trip around town and enjoy some local customs. remember you are "on holiday" so don't be offended by people. This is another country!

Just a point tio remember, although the village is part of a massive resort - you CANNOT use the other services for free. We went to a lush pool area in the Golf part and nearly had to pay £20.00 PER PERSON (YES POUNDS!) FOR THE DAY - ER, NO! Batted my eyelashes and we got it for free. It will not be the case high season!

I would recommend for a short stay, as Self catering is pricey. But nice peope and beautiful country. fab food and we had fun!

Room Tip: pick a villa near the little pools - wish I did!
