Having read some of the reviews on tripadvisor we were bracing ourselves for a fairly bumpy week, but we consoled ourselves with the knowledge that it was incredible value. We could not have been wider of the mark. My wife and 2 children (6 and 8 year olds) absolutely LOVED everything about this hotel!
I can't imagine any of the staff being unfriendly, but if they were, the guest must have been a nightmare!!! They were a delight from the manager down to the gardener. We experienced absolutely no animosity because we were English. Infact we were made to feel so welcome that we tipped various members of staff at the end of our stay and they were surprised, but delighted (TIP: Not a bad idea to do this with a waiter at the beginning and he will probably save you the best table with your drinks at the ready?)
The food was amazing. If you stick to sausages and chips all week it may become repetetive but the variety of food was mind-blowing (if you see a chicken tagine, grab it). Even the lady that makes the pancakes for breakfast made a special effort for our kids by making them in the shape of donkeys, bears, stars etc...they were literally exploding with happiness! I can't even begin to tell you about the puddings. I did not see a single fly in the buffet area in the entire week.
Beer wine and cocktails are available all day, and there is no question of them holding back because it's an all-inclusive. In fact, if you so wish, there is champagne available at breakfast (easily disguised in the freshly squeezed orange juice...)
The room was fantastic. We had a ground floor room. Every day it was cleaned beautifully and left with a smattering of petals. I recommend that you try and get a room close to the pool and reception, but that's because I'm bone idle.
We played tennis, volleyball, basketball and tried our hand at archery, all of which was free. In fact, you could stay a week at Kenzi and not spend a single penny. The shop is expensive, particularly for suncream so bring enough. If you do need to shop, get a taxi to the massive Carafour Supermarket down the road for 20 dirham (c.£1.50). It has everything you could possibly need and is super cheap.
I could go on forever, but needless to say we will be going back, and there is no better endorsement than that.
