There is nothing intrinsically wrong with this hotel (it changed from the Delano to the Pearl half way through my stay) at all, but, as a matter of taste it just wasn't my style.
The main thing was just how incredibly dark the bedroom was - even with all the lights on, the bathroom door open to let light in from there, and the main window's curtains fully open, it was still as if it was 11pm at night during the day. So much so that I had trouble packing on my last night and could only really answer emails sitting in the bathroom.
I was part of a large group at a conference and it became a standing joke just how dark the rooms were.
Breakfast was perfectly adequate but not stand out.
Everyone said the roof top terrace was amazing but I didn't have time to go up there
On the plus side the staff were really, really lovely.
Position-wise it was 5/10 minutes in a cab to the medina (50 Dirhams - yes probably tourist price but at £3.50 I wasn't going to complain)
Would I stay here again? Very probably no.
Would I recommend it to others? It would really depend on their taste in decor and if they like (very very) dark hotel rooms.
