OVERVIEW

While a private 18-hole golf course is a prime reason for many guests to check into this five-star resort on the city outskirts, Fairmont Royal Palm also works well for some luxurious fly-and-flop thanks to its majestic spa, excellent children's facilities and a free-form pool that's the largest in Marrakech.

OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Arrive by travelling just over seven miles southwest of the city on Route d'Amizmiz through a flat, desert landscape. This is a grand but isolated resort where you'll need a car or taxi to do anything beyond its boundaries. Transfers to and from the airport or medina take 20 minutes and there is complimentary parking. There is plenty to do here, including for children, plus a concierge desk for arranging excursions and sightseeing.

By plane: direct flights from London to Marrakech Menara take around 4 hours. The hotel is a 20-minute drive from the airport. Free parking on-site. Book flights to Marrakech.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

French designer Marilin Sapataro has created a spacious and luxurious five-star resort that can't fail to impress, and it will seem particularly heavenly if you are into golf or seeking quality time with your children. While the rooms are restful and private, there is plenty of life poolside and in the restaurants.

THE FACILITIES

The 185-acre Fairmont Royal Palm Golf and Country Club is a star attraction with its Cabell B Robinson-designed 18-hole course and companion semi-Olympic size pool, bar and lunchtime restaurant. The resort also has four floodlit clay tennis courts, a squash court, a yoga studio, a concept store and ATM.
