I stayed at the Medina Gardens hotel from 19th - 26th June 2014 with my boyfriend. The check in was swift, we were handed a cold towel at the entrance to the hotel as well as a sugary non alcoholic cocktail and cakes, no queuing at all, the only thing which got a little irritating was the song 'Happy' by Pharell Williams on loop in the reception during the check in. The location of the hotel was brilliant, being only 5 mins away from the souks. We had a pool view room which was lovely although the pool entertainment can get a little loud and goes on till around 11pm which I wouldn't mind but it's just the same 2 guys singing the same few songs. One night I thought I was going mad as they sang the same song at least 4 times back to back. We spoke to another couple who's room was facing the front of the hotel and they said there was absolutely no noise at all so we asked to move but got told the hotel was full (although it seemed very very empty). This meant that we had to sleep with ear plugs in for the rest of the holiday. The drinks are VERY strong - half spirit half mixer, so I would just ask for a half measure of the spirit. The food was really really good and they have a different theme for the food every evening which meant there was a huge choice although over the last 2 days we did both get ill but this could have been due to a combination of the heat and just the change of cuisine as I checked my food at every meal to make sure it was cooked through. The staff were great, Imad was a real help to us, a pool towel went missing from our room (a replacement is around £8!) but he gave us another, free of charge and our towels also went missing from the poolside the next day while we were playing table tennis, he gave us another 2 for free again. We did the Ouzoud Cascades trip which was a brilliant but tiring day out and the tour guide Mohammed was absolutely hilarious and easily spoke the best English I'd heard all holiday! I also had the spa package, the massages were nothing to rave about but the hammam scrub was great! There were plenty of sun loungers and there is a main pool as well as a quiet pool which I preferred. Overall the holiday was fab and I would definitely return to the Medina Gardens!
