“good value”
Reviewed 18 January 2012

Stayed 3 nights with my young son and found the hotel to be very clean and well maintained. May not be the most modern of buildings but all the amenities were great and the hotel's
internet room rate was very well priced compared to others in the area. Location is fabulous, more North Broadbeach than South Surfers. We didn't hire a car as the bus stop is right outside and gets you everywhere- staff were helpful with their advice. Having an indoor and outdoor pool was wonderful as it rained a lot when we stayed. Voucher included for breakfast and the Kesh cafe was great. Would be nice to have free interent access in the lobby and only drawback was I found the mattress a little hard- minor thing.

Room Tip: ocean view room nice- good sized 1 bedroom units

The Marrakesh apartments are self contained with all the amenities of home. The complex has a beautiful indoor heated pool and spa, an inhouse restaurant, and very pleasant and efficient staff. It is easy walking distant to the Casino, Oasis shopping centre and Surfers Paradise attractions. The security is good with keyed access to lifts, pools and late night entry. The rooms are generous size. Staff are on duty from about 8AM to 4PM and can book any tour or attraction you wish to visit. A bank of letter boxes are assigned one to a room where you will find messages if you get any. All in all the Marrakesh is a clean, comfortable, secure and convenient place to stay and is definitely value for money. The downside, if you like fresh sheets everyday, is that the apartments are only serviced every 7-days. Definitely recommended for anyone traveling to the Broadbeach/Surfers Paradise area. I had one complaint. They had just bought new pillows and they were a bit hard for my preference, but that is a personal thing.

We stayed for a week in a 2 bedroomed apartment. Our ocean view room on the 7th floor overlooked the sea, resort gardens and pool area. We had a fantastic view of the highrise surfers buildings, which were not too close. Our room was large, clean and had eveything we needed. Although I'd probably rate it a 4 star. The large balcony got good sun. Everyone was helpful and friendly and our stay went without a hitch. Buses stop immediately outside going to Surfers, Seaworld, Pacific Fair and Jupiters. And a block away on the main highway, buses go to other theme parks and Narang Station.
A small Shell garage on the highway (about 5 min walk) offers essentials and there's a good bar about 50 metres away. We had an excellent holiday and would certaining go back again.

Room Tip: I would go for a mid level where you can see eveything but arent too close to the street noise. The...

We stayed for 5 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment with great views and access to the rooftop BBQ area, gym/sauna and pool.
We enjoyed our stay until we were checking out and were accused by staff of ludicrous acts such as "dismantling" the Christmas tree in the hallway and riding on the luggage trolley!
They threatened to call the police and charge us extra fees. When we asked to see the alleged security footage they had, they reluctantly showed us and the person looked nothing like any of us. We left after being told the Manager would contact us to discuss the issues further but have never heard anything from them since.

It's a shame that they ruined our stay by trying to pin acts on us that they knew weren't done by us. Won't be going back again, ensure you ask to see security footage if they threaten you!

Marrakesh is a nice place to stay and close to everything but avoid the short rude man on the desk who gives you the express checkin and no information about the place! You can buy your Theme Park tickets at the reception desk but best to wait until one of the friendly people are on duty at the desk.

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?).
