Can't fault the friendly staff form the time we arrrived until the time we left. Our flight back to NZ was delayed by the ash cloud and when we told reception about this they were great about us keeping the room until we found out what was happening with our flight. When it was cancelled and we enquired about staying another night, again abosolutely not problem. The room we had (812) had a great view and very quiet, but was slightly dated but as we were using it just as a base it was more than adequate. Overall I'd give them an 8/10

There are many positives for Marrakesh. A great location so easy to get around and don't need a car as public transport is readily boarded to all local attractions, theme parks, shopping centres and supermarkets. The public buses pass by the driveway. The apartments are very clean and well maintained and a big plus is the on site Kesh Restaurant - the staff are willing to deliver room service. The apartments are generous in size and allow space to amuse children after a long day's outing while leaving space for the adults to socialise. The negatives are the uncomfortable lounges, which are not designed for relaxing (maybe because they contain a sofa bed), can't get gravy on a bowl of chips in Kesh and the girl on the desk who is often more interested in her computer than her guests (personal internet?).

Rooms are spacious but very out of date. The sofa was incredibly uncomfortable and the shower was terrible (not enough pressure to wash your hair)

Pool and garden areas are old fashioned and full of tired and faded garden furniture.


Ants in the apartment kitchen and lots of small flying things - fruit flies?

As mentioned by other reviewers - terrible service.

There are so many glamorous and up to the minute resorts in the Gold Coast - why stay here? I won't again.

Room Tip: go to another resort

Definitely not a family hotel as it was recommended to us. We got so concerned with our kids making any noise we hardly stayed in the hotel's facilities as you'd get old folks looking at you with dirtly looks. Signs everywhere of what not to do...what it would be like in a retirement village. They only come to give you fresh towels every 8th day. You can't request new ones.

I had been to the Gold Coast before, so I knew what to organize and where all my activities were and how to get around. Had previously stayed at a more expensive hotel near by, but found The Marrakesh to be better value and a better location.

The Gold Coast has a great bus network and with a bus stop at the front of the hotel I could go to any shopping center or attraction I wanted.

The hotel is close to the beach and has a secluded pool with spa, perfect for relaxing after a day of sight seeing.

The rooms are large and spacious with lots of amenities. The building is well designed and the balconies are perfectly situated for quiet relaxation. The weather was moderate during our stay. I can't imagine hot weather being a problem with this hotel. Air conditioning is available if required at all.

We had no trouble with any exterior noises or loud guests.

I only wish we could have stayed longer to see more attractions.

A shopping/restaurant hub is close by, but not too close to be affected by any crowds or traffic noise.

We had a very relaxing stay, and the resort was just what we needed. The resort was quiet, and in a good location, close to the beach. The pools and spa were wonderful, and the 1 bedroom apartment was clean and well equipped...dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, good size fridge, and a sunny balcony to enjoy the views from morning till night. On the down side, the bed was very firm and a little uncomfortable and the pillows were very hard, and it would have been nicer to have full sets of matching crockery and cutlery, but overall our stay was very good.
