From the moment we set foot in the Palais Rhoul, we were made to feel instantly at home, literally, and we spent the next 5 days relaxing completely in the most beautiful pool we have ever seen...
The Palais is perfectly located in the most beautiful area of the Palmeraie,5 minute drive from the centre/medina
The pool merits a whole page of description but I shall try to condense in into 3 lines: made of the local Tadelak method, it has several different nuances of coulours which means it changes colour slightly throughout the day - always a fascinanting green-blue...I must have taken about 100 photos of it! It is a huge round warm pool surrounded by columns, but not of the naff type, and there are 5 bedrooms which surround the pool in the main building. Lots of flowering plants hang from the garden on top of the roof so you get a rain of flowers in the pool whenever the wind blows gently which gives the pool its magical feeling- the flowers then skittern on the surface and then collect at the edges of the pool as if it were deliberate morroccan decoration... There are other pools so this one is never crowded (2 other couples was the most we had in April)
We had Bedroom 4, and the kids had bedroom 3, a perfect solution if you have children as your garden view terrace adjoins theirs. Our room was a huge suite, one of the most beautiful ones we have ever seen due to it being completely 'transparent' - all glass on the side of the pool and all glass on the side of the garden (you step out of the bedroom and the pool is 1metre away - so you can actually supervise your kids from inside the bedroom!). The most enormous curtains ensure privacy when you want it.
Breakfast was plentiful and delicious with a new item everyday - all home made, and we pretty much ate lunch and dinner there everyday and it was all delicious (dinner can be next to the bedroom so again handy to supervise your sleeping kids)
The garden is amazing - full of coulourful bougainvillieas and other impressive plants and birds sing along all day adding to the feeling of being in paradise...
The pool was at 31 - 32° all the time so it felt like a huge jacuzzi and you felt like spending the day in it. The Spa looked gorgeous though we didn't use it
Service was perfect - all without exception very helpful and any request sorted in a minute. When you leave the pool you have stacks of towels available to help yourself - quite the opposite of the Selman where we had to beg for pool towels and freeze whilst we waited -we got an iphone charger delivered straight away upon requesting, all very efficient.
We look forward to coming back to the Palais Rhoul soon!
