We visited in March 2010 and we had a lovely time, I would recommend booking your transfer through Dawn and Francis as we found our driver easily at the airport and he knew exactly where to go. Don't be daunted by the drive it is a bit crazy to get there, yes it is off the beaten track but once you see the yellow buildings fears of being in the middle of nowhere dissapear!!!!
Dawn and Francis were lovely, it did feel like you were in someones home but we also had our privacy so we really did have the best of both worlds. It was really interesting to have chats with them about how they started up and it was great to be able to ask for recommendations on restaurants and things to do which really was invaluable. We stayed in the Lak Lak upstairs room which was beautiful, with its own terrace, I would really recommend this room to any couples.You must go in to the medina one night which we did and shared a cab with another couple which was great for all of us and we even ended up having dinner together in a lovely restaurant recommend and booked by Francis (who even drew us a map!) The restaurant was exactly to our taste, you wouldn't believe there was such a hip place in the middle of all the markets!
The food was very nice and great value, I wasn't very well for a few days if you get my drift(!!!) but the staff were very caring and went out of their way to find something I could try to eat!!!
This not a hotel or a self catering apartment but it is a home from home (well I suppose if your home is chic and sunny!) Our stay was so so lovely and a perfect location for a wedding (hint hint to the boyf!!!)
