Large swimming pools, tennis courts, sports facilities and fitness gyms are all but standard. Many of the hotels also have a luxurious spa and/or traditional hammams.
The ancient city of Marrakech is just a short drive away and here you can explore the boutiques and traditional shops that line the narrow network of alleyways in the Medina; sample the lively nightlife or spend an evening at the Jemaa El Fna night market and watch the street performers. There are also a number of historical sites at Marrakech including the Koutoubia Mosque, the Bahia Palace, the El Badi Palace and the Saadian Tombs.
Between Palm Groves and Marrakech, the modern district of Gueliz is far more westernised than the old quarter. Here you will find upmarket coffee shops, international fast food chains, designer boutiques and high street names.
For a family friendly day out, the Oasiria Water Park is open all year round with attractions for both adults and children.
