I took 16 members of my staff here in February 2012 for a 3 day break and it was great. With it being in Feb, we were given rooms in block B and C which were large, clean odourless.
I returned with my family of 4 last week (during the half term) for a 7 night break but were on this occasion put in the rooms at the far end of the resort (rooms 4126-7 to be exact)
They were dirty, tiny, had bad sewerage problems and a broken shower.
We got moved to rooms 4202-3 which were not dirty, but had tiny bathrooms, broken showers, no WIFI connection, A/C that blew only hot air, birds nest complete with squaking chicks and wasps nest on the balcony.!!
The guy on reception (late 20's with BO) was abissmal in that when brought to his attention, he did nothing to help (all though he said he would) I think a lot of there problems can be resolved by a major overhaul of the rooms as the majority of the staff, water park, food and drinks were very good.
Make sure you visit the Souk in the daytime as is superb but dont in the evening as is a very different experience indeed !! Airport taxi should cost you no more than 500 dirhams to Aquapark. Will return to Marrakech but will be staying elsewhere
