First impressions are important, turning up at the place, the car park and main entrance looks like a building site, which given the impressive photos on the website was very disappointing. The place has potential to be very beautiful given its location in the palm grove and interesting kasbah type buildings, but the outdated decor and extensive use of wrought iron furnature makes the place look dilapidated and tired, it was also pretty messy when we turned up. The rooms are big, the bed was very very hard, and there was too many colours on the wall to count. Dingy energy saving type lighting inside the room added to the already glum feel of the place. To add to the list of things, the water hot water did not work, Im assuming this was just a bit of bad luck and they were good enough to put us into another room. On the upside the food was fairly good. Though the service was a bit disorganised, we didn't get milk with our coffee for breakfast and or any bread. What was most disappointing of all was the shock at the end of being charged 5% of total accom and food price , for paying by card. This was not mentioned anywhere on the website, a cheap trick which leaves a sour taste in the mouth of an already drab and uninspiring experience. I have no idea of how it has got such high reviews. Real shame, the place could be nice if the owners treated it a bit more professionally and less like a lifestyle business. I wouldn't consider this good value for money, I have stayed in various riads and Kasbahs and think there are many more places where you get more bang for your buck.
