Not a 5* at all So don't expect it to be that, would say a 3* at max.
I'll break it down to good and bad so it's easier for people to understand.
- Friendly helpful staff (that's how we found them)
- Amazing slides (You have to try them)
- Rooms are spacious
- You must visit the town especially at night. It was an amazing experience
- Secure and a Free safe which meant you don't have carry any valuables with you even when leaving the complex
- Soo many activities to keep the kids busy from morning to evening (Football pitch, table tennis, Mini Golf, Inside heated swimming pool, pool tables, evening entertainment)
- Free shuttle bus into town 4 times a day which we went on every morning
- Cash machine as well as currency exchange at the hotel with almost same exchange rate you get in Marrakech town
- Beautiful view of the Atlas Mountains
- Local bus takes you to town and back from 7 Dirhams each way and stops outside the hotel but gets full on way back and you need to shove yourself on first but beware of Pickpockets
- Food was repetitive especially breakfast and you have to queue for warm food and people jump the queues. Afternoon snack finishes if you don't get there early and they don't bring anymore!! Pizzas were basically hard and were served in small 2 or 3 pieces each from a very large rectangular hard dough. Some of the desert was left overnight in the freezer and were still frozen when you tried to eat them (Yoghurts) Rice was at times hard and food would get cold if you came late. Basically get there early otherwise you'll only eat left overs if your lucky or go starving as they don't bring a lot of food afterwards
- Pools were freezing and you couldn't swim in them for this time of the year
- Building work was carried out most of the time possibly getting ready for the summer
- When local Moroccans were there during their half term holiday were rude, loud and push in front for food
- One of the lights decided to fall off the wall 2 days before leaving and you could tell some of the jobs weren't done by professionals
- If you don't speak French or Arabic then it was difficult to communicate with most of the staff
Overall an enjoyable experience as we made the most of it and just got on with it. You must visit the Jemma El Fenna as the clothes are very cheap and food is so tasty at night and sooo cheap.
Taxi from Airport to hotel you would get for 250 Dirhams max and going back to Airport 150 Max. Make sure you Haggle Haggle Haggle
Hope I've made everything clear.
