The journey at night to the hotel is rather scary as it's off the main roads by quite a long way, and basically in the middle of nowhere! So be prepared as we weren't! Don't get a taxi from the airport as many of them won't find the place, call the hotel and they will send one of their taxi's, which also means you won't get ripped off!
The hotel is traditional, clean and I suppose mostly quite simple. The staff are very good, and can't do enough to help. Whilst it's about 20 minutes outside of Marrakesh, for us this was good as the air was clean and it was quiet - with a free shuttle bus into the centre!
The pool is not heated, so whilst my boyfriend jumped in for the heck of it most days - even though it was over 20 degrees lying on a lounger.. once in was all I needed!
If you're booking through something like 'secret escapes' like we did... we had soup, tagine and then fruit every night bar once...so the week was definitely the right amount of time!
The hotel will book taxi's to take you to the Atlas mountains or to Essouria the coast - both very worthwhile, and not too expensive.
I would say if you're just going for a long weekend then it would probably be better to stay in a Rhiad in town as after speaking to lots of other tourists it sounded fun to be in the centre. For me, I liked being a bit away from the crazziness and noise of the centre of Marrakesh... guess it depends on your likes!
The village that the hotel is based in is very poor.. so you will have children asking for pens etc. I only wished I'd taken some with me, however have a package to send out to them!
I would highly advise to not rent a car as the roads don't seem to have any rules as such, or not like England lol!!
All in all a wonderful experience of another part of the world!
Enjoy your trip :)
