We just wanted to step foot into Morocco and shop around a little then go back to Spain. We had our round trip tickets but unfortunately, the ferry service shut down without notice. There was no one to help us. They closed the ticket office and that was it. We found this hotel on Tripadvisor and booked a room. Getting to the hotel was hairy with all the people coming up to us trying to get us to buy things and we were sucked in by one man which turned into two men who were "protecting" us. They took us to places where their friends had goods to buy and they all pressured us heavily! It was NOT a good experience. Finally we got to our hotel where after we got into the doors of the hotel, we were safe. We were shown our room but it was not what we needed so they changed it to a bigger room that sort of fit the bill. Room was big but the view was bad and no balcony. Food was very good, especially the dinner. There was belly dancing and nice entertainment. The bar was lively and had many nice people in there. At least we could unwind from the stress of the day. The beds were comfortable, the vibe was OK. We just wanted to go back to Spain. As soon as we woke up and had breakfast, we left in a dash for the first Ferry back. Getting to the Ferry was not pleasant and getting past the passport desk was even more unpleasant. They were not nice to us. So....... well, guess we won't be going back there but would if we could get there without the harassment.
