Though this isn't a five-star hotel, it feels like a great four-star hotel. Attractive features are: more swimming pools than you can try out in a week, a great water slide park attached (and I mean, like nothing you've ever tried before!) really good food, and friendly staff.
For this price, I have not criticism of the place. Staff were very friendly, and child-friendly, the room was excellent (we were 2 adults, 3 kids in a two-bedroom place with sliding doors to separate kids from adults and balcony), clean, climate is great, and the buffet was excellent. There's a free shuttle to Marrakech; depending on how fully booked the hotel is, your return times may be restricted by the schedule. Marrakech is so exciting, and can provide a nice balance of reality&culture for parents who want a bit more than animation teams and swimming pools. The slides were a hoot - some were downright terrifying. Keep in mind that access to the big slides for kids under 120 cm is limited, though you can sign a responsibility waiver for some of the bigger slides, and there are plenty of smaller slides for younger kids.
My only criticism would be over-enthusiastic use of the PA systems by both the animation teams and the DJs. Sometimes the music in the slide park was just too loud, and the animation team often went on until 11 pm which is a slight pain if you have small kids to put to bed, but, overall, I would say this was a minor inconvenience.
I am not a fan of resorts, but I had a great time here and really relaxed.
