“Rather 2* than 4*”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

The staff at this hotel didn't welcome us in the friendly way that is common in Morocco. The room was large in size, but failed to meet any other expectations I had for a 4 star hotel. There was neither a safe nor a fridge / minibar in the room, the amenities in the bathroom were pitiable, the shower gel came in subminiature portions. In the bathroom there was even mould on the tiles (due to lack of ventilation)! The rooms were serviced in a strange way: E.g. used towels were removed but no new ones provided, shower gel was not replenished etc.
Our room and the entire hotel appear due for a refurbishment.
Breakfast: In a 4 star hotel I expect friendly waiters (we had snotty ones), espresso coffee (not available although ubiquitary in Morocco), and a more attractive choice from the buffet.
Next time in town I would choose a different hotel.

Poolside service of olives and bread along with a local bottle of white wine was a pleasant surprise. Our Trafalgar tour provided a buffet dinner at the hotel restaurant since not much is within walking distance of this courtyard hotel with rooms facing the pool. Rooms are simple but comfortable with a/c, polished floors and a tiled bathroom. Our room was on the ground floor with palm trees and flowering shrubs screening our patio from the pool. A light breakfast of breads, hard boiled eggs, local tea, mint tea, and orange juice, cheeses and ham. A woman fried up flour tortilla-like flat bread on a hot skillet in olive oil, which tasted great with the fig jam, dates and honey. There is a smoky locals bar in front of the lobby and a small gift shop that sells stamps. Sandwiches and salads, along with beer and wine are available on the restaurant and terrace facing the pool for lunch.

Room Tip: Main level has private patios thanks to the lovely landscaping.

Jouxting the Palais des Congrès,the hotel Volubilis takes its name from the ruins of the roman city by Meknes 80 km away.Enjoy the swimming pool and the shade of the palm trees .This hotel belongs to the tour operator FRAM company supplying tourist groups to fill bedrooms and restaurant .Food is reasonably good but buffet dinners cannot compete with Turkish abundance and variety .For breakfast ask for scrambled eggs.The Fram office in the lobby proposes expensive tours for individuals.A shop also located in the lobby sells post cards and stamps. Change is available at the front desk at the prevailing bank rate.

Room Tip: Ground floor bedrooms around the swimming pool could be also called cabanas...
