Many friends in Morocco had been raving about this 1970's architectural treasure plonked on the edge of a wild treacherous part of the Atlantic Ocean, and the time availed itself for me to finally visit with a friend whose passion is photography of buildings and furniture. We were not disappointed.....this place is absolutely breathtakingly beautiful for its crazy, indulgent 70's decor and design. Furniture, wallpapers, detail and trim, all a collectors delight. When looking around at the fittings and materials used one wonders of the substantial budget spent to produce and install some of it's amazing features. Words fail me....just get there and snap, snap, snap....especially if that is your inclination. The staff are gentle middle aged to elderly men who have worked here since their youth. Rooms were clean and comfy and had some small funky features like sculpted 70's style skylights, but demure compared to the many bars, restaurants and conference rooms able to accommodate hundreds but hosting only 5-10 clientele at any one time. The food is okay, although nothing to rave about, the service sometimes "faulty-tower-esque"!!, humorously memorable and delivered with warmth, welcome and kindness. This place is the Moroccan equivalent to an English "Folly". Every architecture student/architect/interior designer should put this peaceful, old elephant on their "to do" list. I will return.
