Lovely hotel, good food and very friendy staff (most of them). You will not go hungry at this hotel, food is served most of the day, lots of choice and always fresh. Sunbeds weren't a problem in October, you do have to reserve though if you want a good spot around the pool (with no shade) we also went in the gardens and both areas have a problem with flies. We didn't bother with the hotel bus, the taxis at the hotel gate will overcharge you so flag one down.
The trips that Thomson's offer are far too expensive, taxis will take you for half the price. Only downside was the evening entertainment, the shows started at 9.00pm and didn't last very long there was nothing to do afterwards, having said that the entertainment team work really hard and are very good. Take a taxi to the YSL gardens which are lovely and very peaceful then take a horse taxi back. You can also go on a red bus tour which is a great way to get your bearings. A must is the medina in the evening, go to a rooftop bar and watch the sun set and the stalls being set up...just magical.
If you go on the Atlas mountains trip take something warm as it does get cold, also on the Essouria trip don't go with the guide as he takes you all around the souks and it get boring - do your own thing.
Taxis - one of the drivers told us the Brits always pay more than the French so if you speak some french it helps, they won't charge you as much!
Ladies if you have long hair take your own hairdryer, the ones in the room aren't very good.
Marrakech Airport - you can take liquids through no problem.
Have a great holiday :-)
