We had decided to have a non beach holiday and were feeling a bit cautious about this, but what a lovely surprise.
Not only was the hotel up to the standard we expected but Marrakesh was better than we had envisaged.
Hotel room was a little bit more basic than we are used to but this was not a problem. Hotel and grounds very clean, lovely gardens , staff very helpful and friendly and a good selection of food.
Use the reception to change your currency, very good rates no need to hunt around for deals.
Reception are also very helpful with any query you may have.
Only problem for us was the smoking. While we realise the hotel caters for everyone there was only one no smoking area, the disco bar, this is fine for shows and dancing but not for sitting and chatting. Thought the reception area would have been a logical place for no smoking as it is the entrance and it gives the first impression of the hotel, not good when very smokey.
But despite that, Marrakesh was fascinating. We found it to be a modern clean city with so much to see and do and we didn't do it all so a return is planned.
Trips we did do were, the 4 half days,discover Marrakesh, Ourika Valley, Gardens ( with horse and carriage ride included) and Souks and Medina. All day 4 x 4 Atlas Mountain was fabulous. We also took the shuttle bus into the city to go to Jemaa El Fna square, an absolute must.So colourful, a mixture of aromas from the different food stalls, activity that is carriages, bikes, taxis, cars,van and people is mind blowing.Not to be missed.
Apart from that it was my birthday and we had a lovely evening in the Moroccan restaurant so a big thanks to Aisha and staff.
If you don't like to haggle you can always go to the fixed price shopping area which is on Mohammad V Avenue just a short walk before you get to the square. All in all visit Marrakesh now.
