As reported, this is a very quiet maison d'hote with excellent facilities. I booked directly through their website and received a rate of EU20 per night for single occupancy of a double room. As I mentioned that I would need wifi in the room, they very thoughtfully allocated me one close to reception which meant the wifi worked well. Also working to perfection - satellite TV with 5 English channels, hot water, aircon, and the pool which was great.
If I have to find anything about which to be critical, I would say that breakfast becomes boring after several days of the same boiled egg, bread, jam, and coffee. And it might be good to have a couple more loungers by the pool. But really these are very minor cavils given the exceptional value this place represents.
Located right by the edge of the palmeraie, it is quiet, yet close enough to the town. The belvedere rocks with sunset views are about 30 minutes walk west, and the medina, which should definitely not be missed, is about 15 minutes walk east. As already observed, cabs are cheap if the walk is too much.
The French patisserie El Bey, at the crossroads just west of the hotel, serves a good fixed price lunch for about EU3, and the first major restaurant about 5 minutes east (La Lune) does very decent food for dinner. Further into town, I can also recommend The Minaret for dining in a pleasant courtyard with slightly more refined choices than elsewhere.
I strongly recomment Residence L'Oued both for its facilities and for the very obliging owner (email@example.com) and great staff.
