“We thoroughly enjoyed wandering about in this medina”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

This is a relaxing place in which to wander, and rather like Rabat Kasbah, there are many shades of blue to go with the whitewash. The palace itself didn't particularly grab us, nor did the murals (which we wished were painted over, as we found the 'art' rather banal). However, we were much more impressed by the ordinary houses, and also the views out to sea.

There are some good restuarnats just outside the Bab el Kasba.

“A nice point of view of the Atlantic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

Little, white, old Medina in front of the ocean, very popular but well maintained, with a number of little shops where you can find your favourite moroccan souvenir. It's plesant walking in the narrow streets and, later, finding a good place where eating moroccan food.

“A Twinkling Oasis - A Diamond in the Rough!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

Having toured fairly extensively around Morocco it was with sheer delight to come across this beautiful place - so clean and tranquil and attractive. We travelled in November but be warned - I am told the population swells in the summer months. This used to be the place to be back in those hippy days and many famous people such as the Beatles frequented it.
