Where the air is filled with the aroma of spices, the streets are a labyrinth of colorful chaos, and your children are a ticking time bomb of energy. But fear not, fellow parents! Club Med Marrakech La Palmeraie is here to save your sanity and ensure you have an incredible family vacation. Here’s a list of family-friendly features that will make you consider moving in permanently:

1. Kids’ Clubs

From Petit Club Med (ages 2-3) to Mini Club Med (ages 4-10) to Junior Club Med (ages 11-17), your kids will be so entertained that you might actually finish that novel you started three vacations ago. I watched the staff interact with the kids and it was so impressive, that I wondered if they’d been trained by Mary Poppins herself. It seemed like no matter where I went on the property I would come across one of the kid groups having a blast. They even throw parties just for kids during the day complete with bounce houses and a dessert bar. (I may have helped myself to some dessert while taking that bounce house photo!)

2. Pools with a Personality

Whether it’s the family pool where your teenager can perfect their cannonball or the Zen pool for when you need to remember what peace feels like, there’s a spot for everyone. And let’s not forget the kiddie pool, perfect for your kiddos to splash around without causing a tsunami.

I spent most of my time at the pool in the exclusive collection area. If you are staying in the Le Riad section you have access to this private pool area. The waiter will bring you tapas and much to my surprised one of them remembered what I prefer to drink and had a drink for me as soon as I was situated.

3. All-Inclusive, Including Your Sanity

Meals, drinks, snacks—it’s all covered. No more frantic searches for a restaurant that serves chicken nuggets. Enjoy a tajine while your picky eater devours their fifth plate of pasta.

The Palmeraie: This is the main buffet restaurant, offering a wide variety of international and local dishes. Think Moroccan tajines, fresh salads, pastas, and a dessert bar that will make your sweet tooth sing. Perfect for when everyone wants something different. And, for those traveling with babies, there’s a section where you can prepare bottles and food.

El Kebir: Serves light meals and snacks throughout the day from lunch – dinner. It’s a lifesaver for those moments when your kids are suddenly “starving” between meals. Expect fresh salads, grilled meats, and delicious pastries. I ate here several times and each day the menu was different and always Morrocan-based.

4. Flying Trapeze: Circus Dreams Come True

Who wants to fulfill their dream of being in the circus? Channel your inner acrobat and swing through the air by signing up for a lesson. You and your kids will talk about your trapeze lesson for months! There’s no experience necessary.

5. Golf for the Mini Tiger Woods

Got a budding golfer in the family? The resort’s mini-golf course is perfect for little hands, and the 9-hole course is great for teens who need a bit more challenge. Plus, it gives you a chance to show off your questionable putting skills. If you’ve never played golf they have lessons for kids and adults.

6. Spa: For When You Need to Hide

Okay, maybe this one’s more for you than the kids. But seriously, the spa is a sanctuary. Treat yourself to a massage or a hammam session while the kids are off enjoying their activities. You deserve it.

7. The Brand-New Family Addition: A Game-Changer

Just when you thought Club Med Marrakech La Palmeraie couldn’t get any better, they’ve added a brand-new family area that’s designed to make every parent weep with joy. Here’s what you can expect:

Family Suites That Fit Your Family

Gone are the days of cramming everyone into one room and pretending it’s fun. The new family suites are spacious, stylish, and come with separate bedrooms. Yes, separate bedrooms! You might actually get some privacy on this vacation. Kid’s will love having their own bed in their own room.

Dedicated Family Pool with Splash Zone

The new family pool area is a paradise for kids. With shallow areas, water slides, and splash zones, your kids will be entertained for hours. And don’t worry, there are plenty of lounge chairs for you to supervise (or nap) from a safe distance. Plus, there’s a bar here.

Interactive Play Areas

The new addition includes interactive play areas where kids can burn off energy and make new friends. From climbing structures to creative play zones, there’s something to engage every child’s imagination.

8. Nightly Entertainment: Better Than Netflix

After a day full of activities, wind down with the resort’s nightly shows. From acrobatics to traditional Moroccan performances, there’s something for everyone. And yes, the bar is open. Early evening activities typically take place in the main area and they always provide pre-dinner Moroccan snacks.

9. Fitness Classes: Burn Off Those Buffets

From yoga to Zumba, the fitness classes are a great way for the whole family to stay active. Whether you’re a fitness enthusiast or just trying to justify that extra dessert, there’s a class for everyone. Plus, it’s a great way to burn off some of that never-ending kid energy. Kids ages 4 and up can participate in some of the yoga classes while the rest of the classes allow teens 16 and up.

10. Themed Dinners

There are themed dinners throughout the week. White Night is quite the production, you will not want to miss it. Everyone dresses in white and enters through a neat white seat up and then while you enjoy the buffet there are live acrobat performances.

11. Family-Friendly Excursions: Worth Every Penny

For those willing to venture beyond the resort (and spend a little extra), there are several fantastic family-friendly excursions:

Atlas Mountains Day Trip: Experience breathtaking landscapes and traditional Berber villages. It’s a great way to introduce the kids to local culture and natural beauty.

Marrakech Souks Tour: Navigate the bustling markets with a guided tour. Perfect for older kids and teens who can appreciate the vibrant chaos and maybe pick up a few souvenirs.

12. Serve Up Some Fun at the Courts

Whether you’re a seasoned pro or just looking to hit a few balls around, the tennis courts are a fantastic way to engage the whole family in some friendly competition. Lessons are available if you want to improve your game, or just have a laugh as you chase the ball around. Plus, they have a sand volleyball court and shuffleboard courts!
