It was never going to be an easy task to meet the varied expectations of a group of 5 adults with different interests / tastes for a Xmas break. Much time and effort went into choosing Marrakech as the location and the Mosaic Palais Aziza as our base. Comments on Tripadvisor played an integral part in the decision-making process and they were spot-on. So much so, that it is difficult to add much to the detailed reviews that already appear here. We (a couple in our mid 50s) traveled with two adult 'children' and our son-in-law. We hoped to relax and unwind in comfortable surroundings, with good facilities on-hand, decent food, attentive but unobtrusive service, easy access to places of interest / cultural experiences........and warm weather as a welcome bonus. We were not disappointed. We had three rooms - two (doubles) were on the ground floor in the annex - you have to leave the main building to access these rooms and there is no outside lighting, which does make it a bit hazardous at night. Both rooms were well proportioned, clean and nicely furnished, with a spacious shower-room. Our room had a small enclosed courtyard, which was a little dark and we didn't use it - but that was mostly because it suited us to sit by the pool with the family. The third room, a twin, was on the first floor and by far the nicest of the three. It had a balcony overlooking the pool and a jacuzzi bath too. The rest of the hotel was beautiful, built in a traditional style. The staff were excellent - whether working as cleaners, on reception, by the pool, in the spa or in the restaurant. Without exception, they were friendly and professional in equal measure. We ate breakfast in the restaurant each morning and found it more than adequate. We were not as adventurous as we perhaps should have been when it came to going out in the evenings - so we did exhaust the somewhat limited menu during our stay. For much of our stay, the hotel was extremely quiet and we enjoyed considerable privacy lounging around the pool enjoying the sunshine. Swimming on Xmas day was a special treat. There were children there during the last few days, but they were well-behaved and didn't intrude in any way in our enjoyment of this beautiful place. There is plenty of interest to do / see within easy reach and the hotel can arrange guided tours and trips to the Atlas mountains. All in all, this is a very special and we would definitely like to have the opportunity to return again.
