The staff at this hotel (waiters, cleaners, bar staff and reception staff) were very friendly and always happy to help. The animation team were so so... but the evening entertainment was lacking (bingo, kids dancing and 1980s quiz nights did not appeal).
Mohammed from the animation team does not deserve all the praise that he seems to get from the previous Trip Advisor reviews. Positive reviews have definitely got to his head, he has his favourite people and chooses to ignore the others. We went to the £10 Marrakech at Night trip to the Medina with Mohammed, we were very disappointed as there were far too many people (over 120), we didn’t hear any of the information that was given and found the night to be waste of time! If you do decide to go to the night trip ask for Hassan, he was very good.
The free shuttle bus was a very handy way of travelling to the Medina during the day (runs twice a day) as the hotel is in quite a remote area. Beware of dodgy tour guides waiting as you get off the bus and taking you down to expensive souks.
The food served during breakfast, lunch and dinner was fantastic. Something for everyone and a good mix of local Moroccan cuisine and for those with a less sophisticated palette there was freshly made omelettes, pancakes, pizza, pasta and BBQ. There was also a wide range of salads and desserts.
A special thank you for all the staff that made this trip worthwhile including Hassan from animation team and Amas the waiter that always greeted us with a lovely smile.
