This hotel is beautiful, very modern but with some classic morrocan themes. It is very spaced out with litlte hidaways if you wanted some privacy. The air conditioning is just right around the hotels and in the rooms.
Everything is kept very clean from the very spacious rooms ( maids are great) the hotel interior the restaurants, bars, pools and the lovely gardens.
The food is plentyful and always lovely, maybe a little to good as it was hard to resist and as a result ive put on a few pounds (oops). There is no queing for food or drinks everything ticks along nicely and there is plenty to go round.
The staff were very friendly and could not do enough for you, they were all on Ramadan when we were on holiday and although they couldnt eat or drink they still stayed cheerful.
The pool is enormous with plenty deckchairs, although these get taken very early with people putting towels down and leaving them there, lucky for my family im an early riser.
There are also lovely big family beds with drapes on them for shade these are a real treat.
The indoor pool is a good size and is lovely it is quiet and great for exercising.
My husband had a wonderful massage in the beautiful spa which has a lovely big pond outside this is home to coy carp ,turtles and frogs. The frogs make a lovely noise at night croaking to each other but be carful where you walk at night as the frogs will jumps out wherever they feel.
Jason and sarah the thompson reps are great they knew there stuff and were brill at there jobs.
The bars do shut at midnight so if you feel like a late night you may need to get a few rounds in.
My son and daughter were able to use wifi with no problems there is and area with comfy seats to relax in whilst using computers ipods, phones etc.
Marakesh itself is wonderful its like stepping back in time the souks are a bit scary but we had a guide which helped, we did a camels ride that lasts for an hour the camels are very well behaved and we also went up into the atlas mountains which was stunning and a worthwhile trip.
There was only 1 thing that was a bit disppointing and that was the entertainment it really wasnt up to scratch day or night maybe iv been spoilt at other hotels but it wasnt just us who thought the same although the African show was alright.
