This was a last minute All Inclusive 7 day break and we had a pleasurable time.
The hotel was 25 minutes from the airport and during our stay we did not hear or see any other aircraft. The only avian things seen were cranes and stalks and some delightful song birds in the gardens of the hotel.
Accommodation is good with daily cleaning of the rooms and the staff there were always pleased to help with requests, etc and most spoke English or French if you wanted to make yourself understood.
The food at the hotel was good and well presented and there was plenty of choice although some patrons complained about the repetitiveness of the morning selection. I couldn’t see a problem, there was at least 15 different types of breakfast being served, so I believe, it was only lack of imagination that caused these individuals to moan. Staff served the hot drinks for breakfast and serviced your table after each course.
There was provision for you to ask the maître d' if you were vegan to have foods prepared for you and as an omnivore the restaurant was ideal. All meals in the hotel restaurant were buffet style. Staff provided you with the alcoholic beverages during the evening meal, soft drink was a help yourself item.
The hotel as a Moroccan theme restaurant which you have to reserve a table through the maître d' there are two sittings per evening 7pm and 8:30pm and the restaurant serves around 30 people. It is part buffet, with the main Tagine (traditional North African Berber dish) course served by staff. Places are booked and you are provided with a ticket and there is no restriction on the number of times you can attend.
The pool and snack bar serves the holiday makers during the day, however the main restaurant is available too.
There are two main bars in the hotel of an evening, the Zanzibar at reception level and one downstairs where entertainment is put on for those wishing see whatever was showing.
The hotel technically does not organise trips for their guests, these are booked through the reps.
At Hotel reception you can obtain local currency but please be sure to get the counterfoil endorsed with the hotel and guest name to ensure you can exchange it to GBP at the airport without any hassle.
Reception staff are really helpful and the hotel runs a shuttle bus into Marrakech between 9am and 5pm with a fixed put down and pick up point sort of mid way between the Old and New City sections. You also get a supply of 2 litre bottles of fresh water from reception too.
We took the guided tours of the City that were on offer and the guides provided were very good, the day tour was excellent value and gave a good overview of the Old city labyrinth of the souk and the history and the vibrancy of the old city is fascinating. After taking the guided tour we used the hotel shuttle to explore the city ourselves.
Good hotel and gardens an ideal retreat for some rest and relaxation from the world at large.
