Just got back from a very relaxing stay with 5 of my friends, This is by far the cleanest hotel I have stayed in for a long time, It was quiet and really enjoyable. We stayed half board, On arrival there was a problem with our booking (the hotel didn't have note of it) but we did not feel worried at all as the staff were very calm and reassuring, and dealt with the problem efficiently The rooms were lovely with HOT HOT water, free safe and free fridges - no hidden cost like most hotels. The view was nothing to write home about but you go to Marrakech for atmosphere and culture. Yes the hotel is alcohol free, but its a Muslim country so we were fine with that, the hotel is walking distance from a large well stocked supermarket where you can get everything you need at good prices, much cheaper than drinking out which is Very expensive, (tip if your having a drink in a bar go for the cocktails as they cost the same as a bottle of beer (£9 roughly) The hotel staff saw us with our clinking bags and were not fussed at all. The food at the buffet dinner was good too.. we got lunch one day (at no extra cost) as we would not be in for dinner,the spread they put on for us alone was FANTASTIC. Breakfast was also very very good they cater for the french tourist so it was very varied. (not a drop of grease in sight!!)
Down sides were few: if you want the free bus into the old town go early as its half full if not full by the time it gets there and even then the old french visitors will shamelessly que jump to get the few seats on.
Secondly if your booking a tour through the hotel be advised the waterfall trip was not as it seemed. We were told everything was included but once there we were told we had to pay for lunch and guide to take us to the waterfalls. we had not budgeted for this so ended up not seeing the falls, plus were were told it was an easy walk as our friend is 6 months pregnant - other guest told it it was very steep .We complained and they were apologetic but was a bit late really.
The dinner show in contrast was very good and worth the money.
Overall it was a great choice of hotel and is so close to the old town AND airport that we did not waste precious time in transit!!
