Stayed here for the Escape to Shape fitness retreat, we had the whole place reserved. It was a beautiful villa and I loved all the exquisite rose gardens throughout and roses in the rooms. Loved the location, very quiet and relaxing after the hustle and bustle of the medina. Lovely pool and awesome view, just wish there had been a hot tub because most days it was too cold to go in the pool even in May.
Two main issues:
No internet in the rooms, only in the common areas and even in the common area right by reception just feet away from the router Internet was still very spotty. It would take up to 15 minutes to send an email and almost impossible to upload photos. Internet should not be like this in 2013.
No shower in the room I had and I understand only a small number of rooms had a stand up shower. No shower curtain or any kind of covering on the bathtub so when you took a shower half the bathroom would be flooded. Not luxurious to me. I understand it was built this way from a design perspective however the bathroom was big enough to have an additional shower stall built in. There was also a little outdoor area going out from the bathroom that I thought would have been an outdoor shower but was not. It was really a pain to take a shower with water going everywhere. Bed was also way too firm for my taste.
So the grounds and the service would have been 5 star but due to the above issues I have to give it a 3 star.
