Central, popular choice which shares facilities with its sister establishment in the Palmeraie. The fortress-like entrance is a little forbidding but guests receive a warm welcome within.
Communal areas are compact but most guests are out seeing the sights during the day, many of which are on its doorstep. Accommodation areas are disjointed and have some steps. Those who require easy access should advise in advance.
Attracts mostly French couples and families with most signage and communication in French. Other nationalities blend in well though.
As central as it gets in Marrakech, on the south west corner of the main square with a major bus terminus 150m away towards the Koutoubia Mosque. There are horse drawn carriages right outside and taxis may enter the square until 1pm each day. There are masses of shops, eateries and markets within 150m.
Jemma el Fna, with its entertainers, food stalls and host of activities is 50m away. The Koutoubia Mosque 180m and the start of the Kasbah area, 400m. The labyrinth of souqs for which Marrakech is famous stretches out from one side of the square 150m away, beyond a host of orange juice stalls.
A relatively large pool, which are rather busy throughout the day and monopolised by French guests. There are some organised activities and guests may use the facilities at the sister property in the Palmeraie, to which a shuttle bus is provided. Although rather closely packed, there is a good supply of sunloungers.
