Just got back from 4 night stay in the Diwane on a half board basis. The hotel is very clean as all the other reviews say however the rooms do need updating especially the bathroom/shower. And its true the beds are hard and the pillows like stone, when I read this in other reviews i didnt think it would be a big deal but after 4 nights of virtually no sleep- it is! Our room was poolside but without balcony so maybe the rooms with a balcony are better. The breakfast buffet is ok, the only fruit available seemed to be oranges. Being half board we had the option of eating either lunch or dinner, the lunch is very limited in choice but 3 course and the service is very slow, dinner is always buffet and again quite limited so gets a bit tiresome. Maybe would be better to swap the lunch and dinner options around so 3 course available for dinner and buffet for lunch. We also booked a hammam at the hotel, the one I chose was the hammam traditional which I found out consisted of a steam bath and body scrub - the steam bath was great very relaxing however the body scrub was torture!! It's like having your skin sandpapered off! An experience I wouldn't repeat!! The hotel is about a 20 min walk from the Jemaa El Fna, 30-40min drive from the airport and a 10min walk from a supermarket. There is a cool tapas bar restaurant right next door which is worth going to for evening drinks.
