This was my first stay at the Marrakesh Resort, it was excellent and I can highly recommend it. It is in prime location half way between Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach - both walkable, and a short walk to the fabulous Gold Coast Beach(es). The Resort is maintained in beautiful condition inside and out and has a super Kesh Cafe independently operated with a great menu and super coffee (with chocolate mashmallows..scrumptious!). Internet access is available 7 days x 24hrs on a Pay PC on the ground floor. The 750 bus is right outside the door for Surfers Paradise and onwards to Main Beach and Seaworld or in the other direction to Broadbeach and onwards to Conrad Jupiters Hotel & Casino, Pacific Fair , Mudgereeba for the super shopping mall (not to be missed) at Robina and Skilled Park for Gold Coast Utd soccer home games. The Gold Coast Highway is adjacent for busses further afield. The Crowne Plaza Hotel immediately adjacent has a public bar called the First Tavern with a great range of drinks, pub food with nightly specials, the 'dreaded' pokies, and excellent staff. I tried a number of restaurants and can specially recommend -> Lolas nearby - need to book for Friday/Saturday/Sunday nights, Sage at entry to Broadbeach, La Porchetta across the road from Sage, Marios in the Broadbeach Oasis centre - need to book Friday/Saturday nights, and Moo Moo's adjacent to the Broadbeach Oasis shopping centre. The Jamaica Cafe just inside the entrance to Pacific Fair from the bus terminus offers a great value breakfast.. The only downside of the Marrakesh Resort for me was the Gym. It is in a good mirrored room in the building with the indoor pool but the Gym equipment is aged/becoming obsolete. I identified the matter constructively and respectfully in writing to the manager/management committee providing specific cost effective recommendations to sort this shortcoming which I trust the management committee will implement. Otherwise it is a 'shame' if the Gym advertised was allowed to be out of step with the otherwise excellent standards achieved elsewhere in the Marrakesh Resort. I joined the One Life Health and Fitness Club top floor in the Broadbeach Oasis Centre as a temporary member during my stay - its facilities/ muscle toning and cardio are superb to include the full range of Les Mills classes. The Marrakesh Resort has a magnificent outdoor rooftop area astro turfed, with superb views, tables and chairs for sunbathing and superb BBQ facilities. On Reception I can commend Helen for her interactive communication and caring customer service skills which are a credit to the Marrakesh Resort. I have stayed in many places around the world on business and leisure, and have to say the Marrakesh Resort (Gym notwithstanding) is one of the best - I will be back.
