This hotel is really great, so close to the beach and to Kasbah too, where you can find so much bars and disco. The food is nice, and the staff also. The rooms are a little old, but everything is clean and you have so big space inside. I recommend this hotel!! I was here 2 times, and never disappointed!

Very impressed with the room - had 5 beds and I was there on my own! Quite clean, slight drain smell a couple times but not bad. One woman on reception spoke English, but the rest of the staff could only say a few words in English, except for Tania at the public bar - lovely girl - very friendly.... More

When we arrived the receptionist was on the telephone and did not acknowledge us with our cases standing at the desk. We hovered, looking at the board with details of that nights Gala Dinner (Xmas...

Ok let me start at the beginning - We found a great deal with 24hrhotels.com and booked half board at the hotel because we had two small children. Having read previous reviews we decided to book a one bed apartment. As we normally do we booked a car and found autoreisen to offer the best deal. What I like about... More
