We booked eleven nights at this hotel from 16th Dec until 27th.
We had welcome drinks on arrival and they kept the restaurant open for us even though we arrived at 9.30 pm . We were given a room facing the tennis courts so we asked to change rooms - no problem at all - they gave us a room on the first floor looking out to the pool .
Food was great - plenty of selection and waiters were fantastic .
Bedrooms were lovely - clean , comfortable beds , spare blankets and extra pillows, free safe and best of BBC 1 and 2 tv channels .
There was a shuttle bus to the medina but it was only at certain times and you had to pre book . A taxi from the hotel was 100 dh each way £9 .
After five nights we asked our rep if we could change hotels and go to the Riu Tikida Garden hotel ( where we have been several times before ) as it was so much nearer to the old town and only cost 30dh ( £2.50 ) to go anywhere by taxi. We wanted to go out in the evenings and the taxis were so cheap we felt that we could come and go as we pleased.
Both hotels were fantastic , but the Tikida Gardens suited us better purely from the location point of view .
