We stayed at the Zalagh Kasbah for 3 nights as part of a Wowcher deal to Marrakech. We were 4 single girls on a city / pampering break and the hotel was ideal for what we needed.
The hotel was only 15 minutes from the airport. It is in a part of town that is being developed so was a little further out then I would have liked to have been from the Medina. You couldn't walk in (would have taken 30-45 mins) but there was a free shuttle bus to the medina (these could have been more frequent though).
As for the hotel itself, it is marketed as a 4 star but I would say it is more a 3 star. It was clean, quiet, tidy and modern but quite basic too. The pool was lovely as was the spa area too.
The room was on a half board basis and breakfast was generous each morning. We only had dinner at the hotel once and it wasn't that great (most people ate out) but surprising lunch was very good.
Service at the hotel could have been better, Waiters weren't very attentive and the reception staff quiet often ignored us when we stood at the desk, even if there wasn't anyone else to serve. That said we did have a leaking air conditioning unit in our room on the first night and when we called to complain and get it fixed, they upgraded us to a poolside room for the next 2 nights.
If you are looking for something simple and clean and don't want much else from your hotel that somewhere to put your head down and lie by the pool then this is your place. However I would fork out the extra money and stay somewhere a bit closer to town in the future with nice restaurants or at least restaurants nearby.
