This hotel is in a suburban cul de sac between two major roads and about 25 mins walk from the medina. The beach is only about 5 mins away, but down an unmade-up road used as a lavatory /rubbish dump by animals and probably people, so the hotel is very difficult to find.
Given the limitations of space it is beautifully decorated and well designed to use every spare inch. The double bed was just that, larger than a single but not large. The suite simply bedroom size with a wall dividing half one end. It was comfortable though.
I imagine if the hotel were full the dining room would be very crowded, the garden patch is completly covered with a vine and has room for three tiny tables only. It is a shame that the roof is not available, as in many Moroccan hotels, since spending much time in the bedrooms is a bit claustrohobic.
There has been a lot of trouble taken to provide everything needed and the staff are very pleasant and friendly, one came to find us in town when we were unable to find the hotel. Basic English is spoken. As a base to drive around from ,this would be a nice place to stay, but as a relaxing place to holiday in it might feel cramped.
