We paid a bit extra for a family room which has 3 king size beds with a partition sectioning off one bed. There was a dressing table, vanity table, TV, sockets, phone, fridge and plenty of wardrobe space which were all clean. Room was huge, bathroom was big too and with a massive shower which my kids liked. Balcony had a view of the Atlas mountains and had excellent air conditioning. Room was very clean but it was not luxurious (i.e. you will not get unlimited bathroom knick knacks, rugs, heavy drapes) but that is to be expected as you are in Morocco not Hyde Park, London. The Animation team were totally outstanding and kept the kids entertained (aged 8 and 5) while my husband and I enjoyed peaceful sunbathing. Mickey Mouse club offered painting, cookie making fun, kids watched a film every night outside by the pool and made lots of friends their own age. If you do not want to get involved in the action of the animation team there are plenty of quiet pools to enjoy quietly. Aqua Fun Park is outstanding with friendly life guards who are not only good at their jobs but also play with the kids a bit too. Over the Reception area is a lovely bar where they had soft sofas rugs, bar, bubble pipes and the tennis on a TV, which was lovely. There is also a bar area with Pool tables which is very luxurious too, you have to go and find these places upstairs away from the masses! Down by the pool there were drop down TVs both outside and inside the adjacent bar but nothing was very loud. Camel rides are offered just outside the complex which was great fun. Our taxi driver, Mohammad, took us to Marrakesh (on my 40th) one evening and then came and picked us up and took us back. You feel totally safe and relaxed. Food was great even for my fussy children (pizzas, nuggets, kebabs, chips, pancakes, omlettes, spag bol, mac cheese etc.) and drinks were easy to get and staff more than happy to help them out. We ate from tagines with beautiful foods to sample anyone who says otherwise does not have an educated pallet. Puddings fantastic if you can fit it in a very full tummy! Fire Show on Saturday night was fantastic followed by a pool party for those who had drunk enough. We watched people getting wet while we played cards! Area outside is very clean and pathways and areas around the pool washed daily, at night the area has charming lanterns which make it feel so relaxing. Pool filters changed every day and water levels checked daily. Cannot fault the cleanliness. We played tennis, kids played football, petanque, crazy golf etc. Playground on site gave the kids an area to let off steam before dinner each night. The Hammam massage in the spa is lovely, the beauty salon is amateurish (sorry). On site shop very handy for things you may have forgotten like an adapter plug but there are no English papers or magasines to buy (you are missing a trick there Pickalbatross!). My bed had the number 40 in petals on it with petals scattered everywhere as the staff noticed my birthday cards. I did notice that the animation team acknowledge birthdays with a cake and a big fanfare but I chose to keep my old age to myself! Nora in Customer Relations is fantastic so if you need more pillows or have a query see her, she organises everything for you. I cannot recommend this place enough, especially if you work hard, need a break from work, kids need entertaining and you just want to relax and have a drink and a bite to eat and not have to think about it too much. Animation team make the holiday as good as it is and the aqua park is the cherry on top of the cake. Excellent value for money and we very much enjoyed our stay and are looking forward to returning again.
