Was a very good resort Good for spending time with family,friends on weekends.the pool provides good swimming facilities for us.and the restaurant available has a variety of good cuisines.The only disadvantage is there is no proper beach recreation facilities since the waves of the water are blocked.

Dear Chetan, Greetings!!! Thank you very much for your kind reviews about your recent experience with us at Barracuda Resort. Yes, as you said the only disadvantage for us is that we do not have beach facility. All our rooms overlooks to lagoon and due to irregular tidal waves in the lagoon we do not recommend swimming. We look forward...

The resort needs updating, the restaurant as well. Location is nice on the beach, but quality is not on the same level as the prices. The seafood platter for 200 dirham is much. They serve a nice glass of wine though, just as nice as in the wine shop.

Barracuda beach resort is a good hide out away from the city life very relaxing, the good thing is they let you do your own barbecue. The staff is friendly and the service is quick, the place was under renovation hence there was a little noise but it was fine after 11pm. There is a huge alcohol shop which is...

Hotel is best and recommended for short trip with families and friends. They offer two bedrooms and most of their rooms have balconies. Ideal place if you’re travelling with families or friends. Place is quiet and relaxing and good place for barbecue. Though it’s a beachfront, you won’t be able to take a dip in the beach as it’s not...

If anything this place is quiet, other than alcohol shoppers and waterpark goers there is nothing else in the area even the road outside isn't that busy. If anyone wants to have a shock they should open this location on google maps satellite and check the area.

It was a 2 day trip with family. A good place to relax, play and enjoy the sea breeze. The rooms were big and could accommodate 7-8 people. We had booked the rooms (the cabanas were not available due to the holiday season).
