I read the reviews before comming here and while a lot are correct there are some things that are not.
Reception as they say has many people but only one capable of helping most of the time but they are polite and helpfull.
The location is not bad with many restaurants close by if you walk they are a few minutes to local coffee bars that provide basic food in clean surroundings to a fifteen minute walk away or a five minute taxi ride for some quality restaurants with good food and wine.
Regarding taxis the big taxi refered to in another review is normaly an old Mercedes that travels long distances outside the town limits the other taxis are smaller and called petit taxis which only drive locally but unless you tell them both taxis will pick up other passengers along the way and share your trip :-) it is also quite normal in the big taxis to have two people in the front passenger seat and four in the back so all very cosy.
A local petit taxi to the Parc area should cost 7 Dirhams (60p) but quite often the drivers push for 10 Dirhams so if in doubt tell them to put the meter on.
one last thing about taxis is that after 8pm there is a 50% surcharge so watch the time in case you think you are being ripped off (as if a taxi driver would do that)
I would not recommend eating in the hotel except for breakfast which is buffet style and the same in the evening.
The bar is very expensive charging £6 for a small bottle of beer this is better value at happy hour 7-9pm when you buy one get one free but try and get served 15 minutes before 9 and they all ignore you to prevent you having too many free ones.
There are other bars in and arround the Parc area where you can buy a beer for £2 for the same bottle.
things i dissliked were smoking is allowed all over the hotel even in the restaurant and people have total dissregard for whether you are eating or not.
The rooms alhough air conditioned get smoke from other areas which mean opening your room door greets you with the smell of an ash tray.
my balcony door did not lock but they changed rooms for me with little fuss.
Laundry is supposed to be same day return if collected before 9 but even when i called them to collect at 7:30 am it was still not returned and speaking to reception who made a phone call and confirmed it was on its way to my room did not make it appear till the next day.
My room was a car park facing room which i found no problem regarding noise etc
