Our Intrepid Travel foodie tour stayed here for 2 nights. My family had 3 rooms. One room had 3 beds for 2 people and a window that faced the ocean. Score one for a nice breeze. We contrasted here as my room was small (no big deal), dark (no exterior window) and damp. My bathroom floor never dried. The bed... More

A group of 6 of us stayed at this hotel and we absolutely loved it. One of our group had badly injured his leg, and the staff of the hotel arranged to meet us from the taxi and walk us to the entrance which was really appreciated. The location of the hotel is perfect - literally seconds from the hustle... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and loved it. It is really near to the souks and medina and a two minute walk takes you to the square with its restaurants. A short walk further takes you to the harbour or the beach. You have a great view of the beach from the terrace where you also have the most... More

The riad is situated in the medina at a short distance to harbour and beach. You can have breakfast on the roof terrasse with view over the ocean. Very friendly staff and low prices. Edda and Horst, Frankfurt

Situated on the entrance to the medina you couldn't ask for a better location. Very helpful friendly staff,with a nice breakfast and plenty of extra coffes or there's of your nation. Clean and very fresh balcony air. Great value not one bad word.

Stayed at hotel Nakhla in November based on impressions in the lonely planet. Price seemed reasonable for location and room size. Entrance lobby is a decent moroccan style courtyard, terrace affords good views over the town and sea. However, room 5, was found to be a disaster. First of all it is a very dark and gloomy room, the lighting... More

But the manager was so very nice after my distress... More

Staff were very helpful and gave us a room last minute. Nice, clean rooms & a beautiful rooftop terrace. Excellent location, just a few steps away from the bustling market streets but still quiet once inside the riad. It's also just across from Elizir restaurant which we would highly recommend! Good value for money.

This is one of the nicest hotels I've staid in during our Morocoo trip. Great location, but not easy to find. If you have at least an idea where you want to go, then it is possible, but you would probably not find it by accident. Rooms are nice and clean, what is all I expect :) There is no... More
