“Fantastic despite the weather !”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Just got back from 4 nights at the Mazagan and it was fantastic . The weather wasn't great , but what do you expect in October .

Staff were very very attentive and friendly . Food was superb in every restaurant we ate in - lots of choice and great quality.

Golf was great ( the course and practice facilities , not my golf ! ) .

Spa excellent - both my partner and I had full massages and both of us were very relaxed afterwards.

Transport to Mazagan ( from Casablanca ) was faultless but we flew back from Marrakech and the trip from the Mazagan to there is ok but not for the faint hearted ! I'd recommend flying in and out of Casablanca.

Room Tip: Ocean view is great

Currently staying in room 1164.
Been unlucky with the weather but chose the hotel because they offered so many activities that we should be ok despite the weather.
Sadly not much help from the hotel. Nothing offered to teenagers other than computer games. No sign of volleyball, football - can't even borrow or buy a ball!
On 3rd attempt at trying to ride at the chaotic stables we finally managed to go. The horses were dirty, uncared for, in rusty tack. Not willing to go, turn or stop - being horse owners and daily riders it was sad to see.
The 'beach club' feels like a locals hang out - the kids can't get near the table football because the staff won't leave it alone.
The conference going on in the hotel has totally taken over with a restaurant closed every night & no communication to the other paying guests as to what will be available.
We were kindly given a bottle of wine on arrival. After the fourth time of asking for a corkscrew by day 3 we walked to the hotel bar with the bottle to get it open!
We appreciate English is at best the locals 3rd language but why do they smile and say yes if they have no understanding of what you are asking? The service is cheerful and willing but totally ineffective.
Our sea view suite is good but the open plan bathroom is crazy - the shower soaking everything in the room. The lack of heated towel rails a huge issue with the terribly wet weather.
The awful bathroom toiletries a shock for a 5 star towel with a spa.
Why Elegant resorts still have this place in their brochure I do not know it is not up to their usual high standards.

A colleague and I had a six night golfing break in Mazagan this October. The overall experience was excellent: the rooms (ocean view) were well appointed and comfortable, the restaurants and bars were good and the golf course spectacular! The staff in the whole resort were friendly and efficient, but the guys on the golf course were the best: one day we were caught in the rain and when it stopped they sent a member of the team out on a buggy with towels so we could dry off!
Highly recommended and, in addition, good value.

Room Tip: Go for the prime ocean view. A bit of a walk from recepton but worth it.

We have just returned from a weeks stay on half board at Mazagan Beach Resort. We went with some trepidation having read some of the recent reviews for this resort and our experience of the resort did not equal those negative reports that we read about prior to our visit.

The few very slight criticisms are:

Drinks are expensive (although not as bad as some reported) - coke approx £3 and beer £6. The cheapest wine by the bottle was £20 or thereabouts. As we are not big drinkers this did not bother us too much.

A very small number of staff could not speak any English but it was not difficult to get by with very bad french (learnt back in my school days a long time ago!)

The weekends influx of local families does produce a chaotic and noisy atmosphere (however very interesting if you enjoy people watching!!)

Smoking, although not allowed in the restaurants, is allowed in the bars, casino and other enclosed areas which if you are not a smoker does incline you to avoid these areas!

The good points were:

Our room was fresh, clean, modern with bed linen and towels changed daily, free bottles of drinking water replenished daily and ample supplies of quality toiletries. Modern flat screen TV with a few english speaking channels.

Without exception staff were pleasant, friendly and keen to help at all times.

Food (we only ate in the Buffet restaurant at night and at Olives for Breakfast) was of a very good quality, catered for all possible tastes including freshly made pizzas, tagines, fish freshly cooked while you waited and a fantastic array of deserts. We are not usually lovers of half board due to our not always having had good experiences of buffets, but we were pleasantly surprised and impressed with the spread here.

The spa was fantastic - the gym modern, well equipped and again the staff provided users with towels and water and helpful advice if required. We did not use the Hammam but those people we spoke to said it was a fantastic experience. There were also several tennis courts (good quality clay courts) and raquets and balls were provided also. I believe that the golf facilities were also of a high standard (according to 2 fellow guests who played).

The pool area was very clean with good, comfortable sunbeds with mattresses brought our daily and towels. These are amongst the best pool facilities that we have experienced and we have travelled fairly extensively to 5* resorts.

The beach was clean (any minor rubbish was collected daily). It stretched for miles giving you opportunities for a lunch time walk! Again the beach facilities were of a good standard, on a par with other 5* hotels we have stayed in. Also available - horse riding, quad biking, jetskis and surfboards (although water activities were limited during our week due to rough sea!).

Re wifi - the hotel had a computer that was free to use at any time set aside in a private room for people that cannot bear to be away from access to their emails!!

Overall, for the price paid, we felt that we had a restful and enjoyable weeks break and would consider returning in the future.

Room Tip: Higher floors in our view better.

I read the previous reviews so was dubious about what was said. However I can not fault my stay there on my trip to Morocco. We had a great deal and stayed full board, the food in the restaurants were out of this world. We were pleased with the comfort of the room and the facilities.

5 Star this is not. Looks impressive but don't look too closely. Staff have no idea what they are doing from reception to cleaners. Half an hour to register although per booked and paid for. Room dirty with no face flannels or slippers. Bathroom dirty and smelly. Wi Fi not operating for over 24 hours and when you complain they say we know. Tried to order South African wine from the wine list but told only Moroccan wines available. On investigation told that the waiters were under instructions to "push" Moroccan wines. The good news was the golf which was excellent but it is a long way to travel for good golf when there are so many good places and golf as well. I would suggest if anyone wants to play golf there they will enjoy it but forget staying as it is awful.

Went for a week end and was very disappointed.
The location is beautiful, the beach fantastic and the gardens very well maintained.
Service is the real problem, everywhere : in the restaurants waiters are not aware of what is available, how the dishes are prepared, etc...
Cleanliness in the room was not very accurate, lot of dust everywhere...
Felt a real lack of training and supervision.
In general I was expecting much more from a 5 stars hotel.
