What a great way to spend a long weekend! Entering through the heavy wooden door moments from the souks, you are transported to an oasis of tranquility where nothing is too much trouble for Ismail and his colleagues. The bedrooms, sitting rooms and library are arranged on two floors around a traditionally tiled atrium with a central fountain and palm trees. The ground floor pool is an excellent way to cool off after an afternoon's shopping. The roof terrace is a very private way to relax and catch the North African sun, or start the day up there with a delicious al fresco breakfast. My double room on the ground floor was traditionally decorated with a comfortable bed, plenty of storage, a safe, its own sitting area and a bathroom with a bath big enough for two, if the mood takes you. By the end of my stay, it felt like a second home and I cannot wait to return.
