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!

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

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.
