Stayed at L'Amphitrite Beach Hotel in May 2012 on a business trip to near-by Ain Harrouda. On arrival it looks like a fairly nice hotel with a large welcoming reception area.
The staff on reception were fairly useless to be fair. 3 of them behind the desk but only one of them remotely capable of doing anything. Anyway, finally got checked in and went to dump bags in our rooms.
Fairly large with decent comfortable beds and good showers. The room I was in was spotlessly clean with no maintenance issues.
We knew it would be expensive just not quite HOW expensive! €7 for a small bottle of local beer, €11 for an import beer. The service seemed good and the barman advised us of the Happy Hour between 19:00 and 22:00 where it was buy 1 get 1 free. This sounds good until you get the bill and they claim you had 1 beer each during the Happy Hour period and 7 each after it ended. I happily argued this and left the money we owed, not what they tried to charge. The barman then tried emotional black-mail by claiming he'd have to make up the shortfall. Oh well, my heart bleeds for him!
The restaurant off of the reception area does a fairly decent breakfast but evening meals are just a very average buffet.
We went to the "authentic" Moroccan restaurant in the hotel grounds and it was awful. To be fair to them they originally said they couldn't fit us in due to a private function but then made room. We should have walked away as I think they just served us (overpriced) leftovers.
We tried to get a taxi to Casablanca. No chance! The receptionist kept banging on about us needing a "big taxi". We told het to get us a "big taxi" then but even this failed. Lost in translation maybe.
Overall a fairly decent hotel just lacking in a bit of service quality.
