My wife and two teenage children spent two weeks in Morocco and stayed at this beautiful hotel for three nights in August 2013.
We had booked two rooms and were amazed by the quality, cleanliness and size of each. Temperatures reaching 40 degrees plus, the air conditioning of the rooms managed to keep us cool.
We had stayed at a number of beautiful Riads and hotels in Morocco at the same level of costs and I must say this hotel did shine above the rest. Even my kids (the fussiest critics) are still harping on about it.
Even if this hotel is full, there is plenty of space. In our case the hotel was under-occupied and we spent most of the day with the beautiful pool to ourselves.
The service was very good and staff unobtrusive and helpful.
Dinner with a limited menu was excellent. The chef was more than happy to change the course if we were not up to the menu offered.
I had all intentions of walks and rides but ended up in bliss relaxing by the pool, walking around the grounds or just catching up and reconnecting after the mayhem of Marrakech.
Dinner and drinks were not cheap but frankly if you're looking for a quality hotel and comfort, I expected this and happy to pay for the convenience.
Breakfast at the patio was lovely, the usual menu of breads, pastries, yogurts and great quality coffee.
One tip for anyone thinking of hiring a car if travelling around Morocco. I would say hire a private hire car/bus with a driver rather than a self drive car. We travelled from Marrakech to Essaouira to the Atlas Mountains to Agadir and then back to Marrakech for about £650 sterling. This worked out to be cheaper and much more comfortable than driving myself. Once at a resort you can get a local taxi at a good price. Jean can arrange this.
Thank-you Jean and his staff for a most memorable, comfortable and enjoyable time.
We will be back.
