Below is a selection of holiday reviews from our single parent holidays in Marrakesh:
"I had a fabulous holiday in Marrakesh as a single parent of a 7 year old boy. I had no idea what to expect but it turned out to be a wonderful holiday. My son was crying and did not want to leave as he had formed bonds with the other children. Jane was a great host. She was very warm, immediately put me at ease, and was extremely helpful and patient as she navigated a lot of different needs. She was excellent with the younger kids. She brought her 19.5 year old son along, who was a huge hit with all the kids. My 7 year old son loved him! It would be great for future holidays if Will was available to co-host with his mum and do some activities with the kids. I think that would work really well. I look forward to my next holiday with single parent families."

"We had a lovely time on holiday in Marrakesh. The resort was fabulous with lots to do, comfortable rooms and delicious food. The weather at Easter is ideal, nice and sunny without being too hot. We enjoyed getting out and about, seeing the sights of the city of Marrakesh and also exploring further afield to the Berber villages in the Atlas Mountains. Highlights were going camel riding and watching the sun set over the Djemaa el Fna.
We were with a fabulous group of mums and kids and were well looked after by our amazing host Jane, who was always helpful and positive. "

"Great holiday and lovely resort. Jane, our host, was excellent. The tours weren’t all designed for younger kids or with road safety in mind. Souk trip only appropriate for older kids e.g. secondary school age. Overall would recommend if the issues with the trips were sorted. "

"I took my 5 year old daughter on this trip and it was a sensational holiday for us both. The excursion to the souks was a real cultural experience - with snake charmers and handmade items galore. The vibrant colours and vivid designs were truly breathtaking. The local guide meant that we were not hassled too much and I’d recommend checking local prices to avoid being ripped off. I’d also take a buggy/stroller if your child isn’t great at walking longer distances. The weather was absolutely perfect varying between 25 and 29 degrees which meant that the children spent the majority of their time in the swimming pools. The Atlas Mountain excursion is well worth it. Overall an amazing holiday that we didn’t want to end! We managed to find a local camel ride which just topped everything off! You won’t regret going on this holiday."

"I fell in love with Marrakech, it was a wonderful holiday and I met some lovely people on this holiday. It was a well organised trip that I felt safe to explore and enjoy Morocco with my son. "

"Brilliant holiday, my 14 year old son loved it. It’s perfect for them to learn about other cultures and differing way of life. The hotel is lovely and the food amazing and you can eat all day long!"

"This was my second Single Parents On Holiday trip and very different to the first. This is more of a city break with the added benefit of a nice hotel with a pool. It was a great and safe way to see Marrakesh with children in tow. My boys were literally gobsmacked when Karmel lead us out of the Souk into the main square with its colours and snake charmers, dancers, monkeys and street sellers. The mix of old and new takes your breath away."

"My son and I have just returned from a trip to Marrakesh and wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had. It goes without saying the weather was fantastic; so lovely to leave a cold and wet Britain and travel to warmth and sunshine. The hotel was all inclusive so, as expected, we got the usual bounteous buffet for breakfasts and three course lunches and dinners, but, what I hadn’t anticipated was that the hotel snack bar would continue to provide food and drinks throughout the day without additional charge. “Snacks” ranged from freshly made pizzas, burgers, chips and pancakes and both alcoholic and soft drinks were served. The pizzas and pancakes made my son particularly happy! The hotel also had a wide range of facilities, including crazy golf, tennis, table tennis, boules, indoor and outdoor pools, football and volley ball! Enough to keep us entertained for the whole week even if we didn’t feel inclined to do any of the day trips. That said our guided adventures to the souks, the mountains and a very memorable dromedary ride were colourful and informative. Some of the families got into the real spirit of bartering. The two guides, Mustafa and Kamel, were wonderfully friendly and attentive. They kept an eye on the children, even whilst at the hotel, and joined in in playing crazy golf and table tennis. My son now wants a table tennis set after the tuition they gave him! The guides were also very flexible in changing trips or dates for trips to suit the families. As usual, with a SPoH holiday, I also got the chance to meet and make friends with the other families and we all got on so well we hope to meet on another holiday soon. So thanks again SPoH."
