We travelled to Morocco for a few days trip and stayed 3 nights in Ramada Encore. The hotel in itself is great, very clean and cozy. However, you will probably like to hear the bad points.
Firstly, the staff speak no English at all. Not that it is a huge problem, but my fiancé could not communicate with them properly and I had to deal with everything in French. We found one guy at the desk speaking English but he was not there all the time obviously.
Secondly, the location is not great. It is about 20 minutes walking from the city centre and about 1 hour walk from the Medina. There is construction going on all around the hotel. There is a sewage river very close so every time we went to the city we had to smell that - it was horrible. Plus that river is being flushed into the sea, so there is no option you can dip there. Due to the aforementioned reasons the walk to the centre from the hotel is not pleasant at all, and also there is no proper pavement, loads of holes in the road so you risk breaking your foot.
One good point about the hotel - the breakfast is great. Cost: 80 MAD pp, which does not amount to £8 as someone else said but to £5.70 (at least at the moment of writing). It is very varied and very tasty (apart from coffee).
The hotel could improve on staff - the girl that was on the desk in the morning spoke only French and Arabic and when she spoke to me she was talking very very low, I could barely hear and understand her. The guy that came to fix internet spoke only Arabic. In terms of location, there is not much that the hotel can do, but I am sure that when all the construction is complete it will be a great place.
