We have just come back from a 2 week holiday and already we are missing the place. We landed late at night so thankfuly it was only a 25 min transfer to the hotel, with a sight of the local people on route. we were met with a welcoming cocktail which was much needed as it was well in the 30c still, once booked in we were directed to the main dining room for something to eat, it was then a small walk to our room to wait for our luggage ( people moaning about how far they were from reception, these people are obviously used to going on holiday in a high rised block of flats not a complex). Eveything about this holiday was amazing, the trips were great ( except the history one, it was interesting but the fella taking us was quite boring), we did the souks, atlas mountains 4x4 and the quad bikes which was great fun. All the staff at the hotel were friendly and very helpful, the animation team were amazing all day,they were always chatty and as we found out from them they worked 15hr days with one day off a week and all for £250 a month ( so before people start moaning about them and their shows, they did as best they can for what is available to them), we spoke about the morrocon culture night we had with local dances and muscians which is what people like to see, but we were told they dont put it on that ofton because the hotel dont like spending money to get them in, shame :-(. We ventured into the main market square on a few occasions and at least once at night which is an experience and a must for all visitors. seems one of the only issues a lot of people had when we were out there was their air conditioning, but as soon as you reported it someone was out to sort it out straight away, it was blamed by the hotel managment on what they said was an unsual sand storm they had just before we had arrived. Everything we had asked for when we were booked our holiday with Thomson was catered for even down to the room with a pool view we could not have asked for a better location and also a bottle of champagne was in our room on arrival. We do not normaly go to the same country or place twice for our holidays but we will definetly be coming back here again :-). Just down the road and about a 10 minute walk is a large metro shop which is their equivalent to Makro, they are more than happy to serve you in their for any essentials you might require whislt on holiday
Also i would like to say that if you need any medical supplies the hotel reception staff are always more than happy to get medcicines picked up for you from the local pharmacists without any hassle, 1st class service.So i would like to thanks all the staff and friends we have met on this holiday for making it such a memorable holiday for us and we will be back :-)
