We had a great holiday and very much enjoyed the golf. The hotel was ok but not, in our opinion 4*. It was mainly let down by the food. It was a little repetitive and uninspiring compared to say the Hotels in Belek, having said that there were no complaints from the 4 boys and nobody went hungry. Also, the pool was freezing so it was a no go, which was a shame. The staff were fabulous, very friendly and the service was very good.
As for the golf courses we found them as follows:
The Palm - we found this course very interesting. Every hole was different, with plenty of dog legs and water to keep you on your toes. Fabulous clubhouse and we received a warm welcome.
The Royal Marrakesh - this received mixed reviews, some liked it, others found the holes a bit repetitive and uninteresting. The clubhouse was just temporary portacabins which was a shame. Each group had to have a caddie. Ours was great. Our son, who plays off 3 had him and loved it. Abdul was friendly and quite chatty, however the other groups caddy apparently was the opposite. He caddied Shaun who is 24 and plays off 5 and on the 18th par 4 he eagled the hole, which did impress the caddy!
The Noria - great course, 8th hole, par 3 across a huge oblong water feature was the hole of the holiday! Lovely course enjoyed by all. The clubhouse was new and expressive. However, unfortunately for us they haven't yet got their alcohol licence so we didn't hang about after.
Al Maaden - without doubt the favourite one played. Loved the course, it had everything, water, ridiculous amount of bunkers, tricky greens but a good challenge for all our handicaps. The clubhouse was impressive too. We received a warm welcome and it was great to finish on such a course.
Overall we had a great holiday, we had 2 X 22 and 2 X 24 year old boys with us and they didn't moan about anything which is a huge compliment believe me. The chap that chauffeured us about all week was very polite, always on time and very chatty which was lovely.
To be honest I don't think we would stay in this Hotel again but would consider another golf holiday in Marrakesh. As a returning customer I would expect there to be a greater incentive than £25 to book again.
Thank you for all your help in organising this trip. Everything ran smoothly and it was hassle free.
