... after a guided tour of the palace we strolled the souks before finishing in the famous square. The souks are so vibrant and busy as people both local and tourists alike make their way through, forever dodging cyclists, motorbikes, mopeds, trolleys, donkeys and carts that can come at you with substantial speed!
As we were strolling through the souks a salesman came at me from the side with a snake, I freaked out and made some sort of noise as I ...
... and pillows, the individual compartments also had doors you could close, and the toilet had toilet paper, soap and a hand dryer. As I write this now it seems like a really silly thing to get excited about but after 2 months in India we have come to expect nothing from anywhere and always carry our own toilet paper and hand soap. Each couchette compartment had 4 beds in it and so we shared ours with a local man who spent most of his night not in the ...
... them each time. The melismatic prayers added the touch in being in a predominantly Muslim country.
We got to see a lot of Marrakech, we went to a nice museum, we went at night to the big Jemaa el fna square. It's quite interesting there, people break out into dances, you see juggling, Henna stands, a lot of food and fresh squeezed orange juice. We went to decent restaurants during the day. But nothing like the freshly made dinner we received ...
... As planned, I'm able to follow the riverbed through the gorge instead of having to walk along the highway which snakes along the cliffside... much more pleasant...

Historical Traveler Reviews Coralia Club Marrakech Palmariva
Felt safe Hotel quite a way out of the city - weather mixed but hot on the whole- Rooms tired but clean - agree with the last reviewer - no kettles etc in rooms. Gardens a treat to walk around play Boules in, plenty of activities to join in if you want. Food OK but we dont want coucous again for a month!
stayed there for 5 days just returned home on the 16th march the weather was good. the hotel was lovely with lots of different buffet food each night but similar breakfasts each day. the staff are very pleasant and make you welcome. the hotel grounds are beautiful and give it that african feel. remeber this is a 3 star hotel and by african standards it was a good 3 star possibly a 4. if you want an experience get a taxi from the hotel approx 100 dirhams and go to the big square aka jemma el fna wot a place that is. watch your money pickpockets galore.snake charmers,leather souvenirs, belly dancers, beggars , evrything so different to your normal spain holidays. we loved it it was a must see and an experience
Good quad biking excursion
Room was 2* and hotel facilities were 4*. No tv, kettle, iron or hairdryer in room and none at reception so take your own. Hotel reception is nice but rooms are tired and need updating. Go full or half board or be treated like second class citizen and pay for everything at reception before you can have it. No "add it to the bill" here. Hourly bus for 30Dh pp goes into town which you have to book before hand. Buffet meals were good. Only 2 restaurants open and inc one only at lunch and during the day.
Don't go for more than 3 days, you will be bored. Some tourist sites open to Muslims only. Difficult to fill day between 12noon and 2pm as most sites/shops closed.
If what you are looking for is a lovey garden and some rather impressive common parts, you'll like the place. Arriving there at night can be enchanting (especially since you will have driven some 10 kms of run down suburbs of Marrakech), as the over all architecture of the Andalous garden are quite pleasant. But, basically, that is it. Rooms plainly plain: nothing to write home about, but lovely settings in little patios with very little view of the Atlas. Standard comfort, but somehow clean. No way this can acommodate the stated 4 stars, even by North African standards. Be prepared for 1 and a half, and you'll be happy. Much happier in fact than when the food is concerned. There again both the brakfast an dinner buffets look nice (from a distance) in a pleasant dining room. But everything tastes the same, and that same is close to nothing. Did they ever say that the food in Marrakech should sometimes be too hot ? That certainly is not the case at this hotel !
Je rentre a peine du palmariva Marrkech et je voulais vous donner mes impressions.
We stayed with two children (4&10) in Feb 07. The animators were great at keeping the kids entertained. There were interesting activities - archery, rollerblading, table tennis, camel riding, horse riding, volley ball -alongwith poolside activities.
The Coralia Club is situated in a palm tree forrest about five miles from Marrakech. The tranquility of the location is a welcome break from the noise of marrakech. Shuttle buses from hotel go to and from marrakech every hour (6 EUR Return).
The Coralia has alot going for it. Fantastic grounds, Numerous activities available on a daily basis and very friendly staff. However it is not perfect. We had to be moved from our room on first night as bathroom was full of mould. The food is average and birds are often seen flying across the dining hall. Only a few staff speak English as most of the guests are from france.
Overall though it is an ideal base to explore morocco if you want to balance the manic sights with rest days in a great looking location.
One of the best (L'un des meilleurs)
Pour avoir pas mal voyagé...au Maroc, en Tunisie, cet hotel est absolument merveilleux surtout si l'on a des enfants.Le personnel est fabuleux....si, si je vous assure et d'une gentillesse remarquable. L'animation est à un bon niveau. Le cadre est enchanteur et les chambres sont nickel.
Certes c'est un 4 étoiles aux normes locales (3 étoiles pour l'Europe). C'est un excellent rapport qualité prix.
J'y suis allé à 2 ans d'intervalle et je ne le regrette pas.
This resort was gorgeous and exceeded every expectation I had. The previous reviewer must have had some bad luck, because my room was immaculate, well-appointed, and everything was in working order. I did notice the maids leave the balcony doors open while they clean, so a fly or two may get in (but I never saw another bug anywhere in the resort).
We arrived at the hotel at 11pm (30 mins from Marrakech airport). The grounds were lovely and the hotel reception welcome was lovely with a cool glass of juice. However when we were shown to our rooms...it was a different story. The place was dirty, bugs flying around. Our bed was broken and the toilet was leaking. There was a bidet, but you had to leave the toilet and walk to the bathroom to have a wash! The floor had not been swept and the door was falling of its hinges. We were told at our travel agency that this was a 4* hotel, but we would not even rate it 1 star. We wanted to move that night but it was not possible. In the morning after breakfast (fried eggs cooked infront of you from a 100 year old frying pan with black all up the sides)...and chipped cups and glasses and flies buzzing around...we didn't want to stay a minute longer. We moved to the excellent 5* (and it really was) Sofitel in the centre. Fantastic hotel with fantastic service and the most delicious food ever.
