It’s all in the name at LABRANDA Aqua Fun Marrakech! This is a gorgeous, colorful, beachfront, water park resort! Featuring the largest water park in Morocco, this resort has 58 waterslides and 16 pools — seven of which are just for kids! If you can peel the kids from the pools, head to the beach, playground, or kids’ club. Other offerings include a spa, Turkish baths, fitness center, live entertainment and onsite dining, with kids’ menus and buffets available. Oh, and did we mention this is an all-inclusive resort?!
Family rooms (two rooms connected by a door) are available; splurge for one that’s located poolside! All guestrooms are equipped with free Wi-Fi, mini-bars (included in rates), and air conditioning.

Take a Pen, on landing you all have to fill out little forms and there are no pens.
transfer was short and check in quick but they insisted I pay the tourist tax (£2 per adult per night) for my 9yr old child because the booking was for 2 adults. It wasn't but the £20 wasnt worth arguing about. My room was block A and it was nice but above restaurant. When I saw friends room in block D around the quiet pool I went and requested a move. The hotel staff moved us the next morn and the upgrade only cost £150 going from a 1 bed to much bigger 2 bed ground floor room which opened onto kids park and pool. The kids could then go in and out as they pleased and cool off. Beds were super comfy and rooms cleaned each day.
The food was amazing and I couldn't have asked for better. It is properly prepared with care and lots of choices even for me as a veggie. The kids were happy as there was always chips and pizza. The alcohol was drinkable and really nice for all inclusive and tipping certainly helps with service. Reception will change notes down into 20's (approx £1.70) for this.
Excursions: we took the free bus to Marakesh and met a guide at the drop off point he took us to the shops he got commission from and they were expensive but he helped us see a lot and too us back to collection point.
The trip to the waterfall is amazing but it is 4 hours each way. Be prepared to be hassled by the men with nuts for the monkeys and take money for the boats.
The hot air baloon ride was amazing and the hotel booked us with Adventure Balloon and they were professional and experienced.
Water park: very good loads of life guards. At 3pm each day they turned on Rapids in lazy river and took all kids round on boats they loved it.
Transfer back was booked for 5.30 but because we didnt fly till 9 they came 70 mins late. You need a lot of time for security so I wouldn't tell them the flight time next time.
The place is great and we will be back but the country could do with starting to neuter the stray dogs and cats and looking at animal welfare in general.
On check in I gave £40 for 4 towel cards and on check out given £400 Dirahm back I didnt give it any thought but be aware the only shop at the airport that will take the Dirham is a overpriced tourist gift shop so i may aswel have given the £40 away.
Tips: take own drinks cups with lids to ward off wasps it works a treat. Shops opposite hotel are cheaper for snacks than the one in hotel.
Visiting as a family with children. Excellent facilities hotel clean and tidy. Hotel stafff friendly warm and welcoming. Animation team really great with kids and super friendly. Rooms excellent clean and tidy cleaned daily excellent.
