As Tony suggests - what is inside is an interesting contrast to the street! I have been fortunate to stay in many outstanding hotels (through work) and the Villa ranks up there with any. We had split our visit to Morocco with a trip to the mountains in the middle of 2 stays here. The interior has been really well developed, sympathetic to the style and culture and yet comfortable. The rooms were really well finished too, although we had to resort to using the A/C and having the windows closed because of a dog barking several times through the night.
The staff were exceptional with the efficiency and friendliness throughout. Obviously, well led, managed and trained! The breakfast and lunch were good - and a plus was having them included in the package. Elements such as the free non-alcoholic drinks and launddry were also nice touches. Locatiion was good, within easy reach of the main square and also the Kasbah area - and a reasonable taxi ridde to the "new" town and Gueliz. (We had what we felt was a good deal with Karim who happily came whenever we wanted and called!)
My only negative would be about the price of the dinner - and wine! The quality was good but I do not want to have to pay about £120 - 140 each night for 2 of us. Surely it is possible to offer a set meal at around 300-350 DH and wine at a proportional rate. I do not object to paying the premium price now and again - but willl not be compelled to doing so. A shame, becuase the setting for dinner was great and Mohammed and his team were great.
