We found Ocean Vagabond at the end of the paved beach path. We decided to escape the sun and the advances of the camel and horse operators who were friendly but unrelenting. We were warmly welcomed and told we could sit anywhere we pleased. A short while later our drinks were delivered and we were left to enjoy the scenery... More

This is a cool spot for the ones they want a cool a non-marrocan atmosphere...in front of the beach and next to the kyte/surf place it,s an ideal location if if you are bored of morrocon food/style. While you are there you don't feel you are in Morocco, despite of the camells, and traditional morocco music singers that are playing... More

This hotel is ideally placed at the Medina end of the beach, 2 minutes from the prom and 5 minutes from the Medina. It has a lovely little pool and garden, nice shared spaces of bar, restaurant, lounge, library and really kind and helpful staff. We stayed with our two young children and after some negotiation before hand they waived... More

Brilliant location - 2 minutes from the beach, but only 5 minutes to the port and the medina. The rooms,public spaces and pool are perhaps a little past their prime but pleasant enough and clean. The bedrooms are a good size. Breakfast wasn't great. The staff were helpful and let us check out late on the last day with no... More

Our riad owner recommended this spot and it didn't disappoint. A lovely sheltered spot by the beach with a big garden. Lovely food (we had the brochettes) and a great place to relax with a drink for a few hours also. Friendly service and a playground at the back also

Its a Nice little hotel close to but just outside the medina. We had a beautiful ocean view and a small balcony. The staff was mostly very professional and friendly. The backup staff was inexpirienced and did not smile too much. The tangine for dinner was tasteful. The breakfast plain, but the primary Crew could Spice it up with an... More

Nice hotel, clean and comfortable. A little tatty around the edges but that didn't really matter. Service good and all the staff were attentive and helpful. Pool nice. Only a very short walk (5 minutes if you amble) to the beautiful beach. Good relaxing holiday with enough to keep the children occupied.

Came to this hotel wanting to switch off and relax and this hotel was perfect for that. The pool is small but lovely, the library area was great, staff were very nice and the few times I had lunch there it was good. The rooms were very nice and the bathrooms a great size. Could not recommend it enough.

This really is a super hotel, not sure why it has received some only ok reviews. Stayed here for four nights in October. The hotel is boutique-style, with only about 12 rooms. Ours was lovely, clean and with a large bathroom. Got to see some of the other rooms too (when they were being cleaned) and was well impressed with... More
