We have just returned from a fortnight in Morocco, staying at the Timoulay Hotel after having chosen it based on reviews and ratings on here. So were we happy…?
On the whole yes, it is a pleasant small scale hotel with helpful, friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere. While most of the staff speak fairly good English, knowing a bit of French will certainly help as things like the menus are all in French without translations. From our experience the one place you really will need some French is the Hotel’s Spa, we both had a hammam (an experience!) and my wife also had two massages and we did find booking them hard work (with my wife’s rusty French as I’ve never studied it) and their booking system seemed a little chaotic, all three of our appointments didn’t seem to make it into the register, but in fairness they did all get honoured with no fuss.
We stayed half board but often also eat lunch at the hotel. Breakfast was a good continental offering with hot options being waffles, pancakes and eggs, but no full fry up but this wasn’t a problem for us. The evening meals weren’t all that I hoped though after having read reviews, it’s not that they were bad, but by the end of two weeks they were getting a little monotonous.
We were also glad that the hotel was set back from the actual beach front by about a block as on a few days during our visit the winds became fairly strong in the afternoon and on the beach front it was like being caught in a desert sandstorm! With the hotel being set back up the hill a little way you did notice the wind, but you didn’t get the sandstorm problems. Laying by the pool you hardly noticed what would have driven you in doors had you been on the beachfront.
All in all a good hotel, but it just lacked a “wow factor” that would have won it a 5/5 rating.
