im a hotelier and can know the difference between when someone is good and trying to be good. the product is impeccable, while room theme where everything functions well at a very affordable price. so here is my rating.
VFM: 5 (the product is too good, quality amenities, rain shower, modern bathrooms, large mirror and everything that will make this boutique hotel feel luxurious)
Location: 3 this is away from the route to the park, have to beat some serious winding roads to access the hotel. The hotel rooms are spread round the hill, so its a trek to go back and forth to the pool and restaurant. you must have a car to get in and out of the hotel if you decide to venture out.
Staff: 4 very friendly, honest and helpful hence the service was impeccable.
Facilities: 3 only because the hotel has a pool and restaurant but no action in or around the hotel at night. you have to drive a mile or two to get to a decent watering hole or a bar for food/cocktails.
Rooms: 5: themed all white. floor to ceiling and most come with a balcony (some with ocean/partial ocean view) The bathrooms are LARGE with awesome showers. the quality of amenity id great too. Housekeeping does a great job of keeping the room clean.
overall three only because of the location and the absence of any vibe in the hotel despite an awesome pool and a great restaurant! the hotel should try and lure more people from other neighboring hotel to hang out at night as Pacific Souss has the potential to do that......
