8/10 Very good

Ok but nothing more
This is hotel delivers what’s expected and nothing more. The junior suite we had was very nice and spacious with a large walk in closet. The breakfast was very good. Expect children in and around the pool (a bit noisy) and you have to make sure to get a lounge chair early or you’ll e left without. It’s usually the small things that bother you and for me it was the double espresso I ordered. First I had to wait 30 min for it (!) and then pay for 2 coffees as the waiter thought a ‘double’ is 2. 60 MAD (€6) for a coffee…

This hotel’s location is amazing: couple minutes walk to the medina and across from the beautiful beach. If you get an ocean front room, you can go to bed listening to the waves. Couple of caveats: the a/c was not working good and ‘heated pool’ was too cold.

The property has a boutique Hotel vibe. We stayed 1 night and we had great service from check-in to check-out. The staff were very accommodating especially Loubna and Hasna at the front desk. The bellman Abdelilah was polite and patient. We had the buffet style breakfast at the hotel restaurant which had many local elements along with a few European touches. The hotel is located right across the beach which has a beautiful paved walk way to take a stroll either day or night. I would stay here again and recommend this hotel
