This is a beautiful oasis away from the heat and hassle of the souk, but still only a stone's throw away. Excellent, friendly service with a real family-run, personal feel. A lovely base, especially for a couple.
We travelled with two young boys, aged nine and 11 and they fitted in well; but this is perhaps not an ideal hotel if you have youngsters who want to let off a bit of steam. The pool is delightful, but is more for cooling off than swimming, being shallow and small. Having said this, so long as you have well-behaved children and are sensitive to other guests, you should have no problem.
Superb breakfast of pancakes, fruit salad, yoghurt, cake, bread, fresh juice and copious amounts of coffee.
The hotel is also very helpful in organising trips much less expensively than we'd seen advertised elsewhere.
