Great location, breakfast and nice property
The room was nice. Clean. Great breakfast buffet and location as on the beach as right beside the medina. Only thing I did not like was the rooms were hot even if cool outside. If no air conditioning in the room it would be a good idea to have windows or doors with screens to allow cool air to circulate in the rooms and still allowing your guests to feels secure with sleeping with the windows or doors open or invest in air conditioning units in the rooms. It was difficult to sleep comfortably at night as the rooms were too hot and not in a millions years would I be crazy enough to sleep in a room in a hotel while leaving the doors wide open.

2/10 Poor

We were severely disappointed with this hotel. For the rate we paid, we were expecting a clean, comfortable, well kept hotel. Unfortunately upon checking in, we were directed to our rooms which were out the back, not connected to the main hotel. They more resembled a motel. The rooms we clean, but aged and outdated. The gardens and paths are unkept with weeds and grass growing from all areas. The external condition of the hotel looks nothing like the photos. The building is run down, and needs a lot of work to bring it up to scratch. We stayed one night and cancelled the following two which we had booked. We won’t be recommending this hotel.
