After arriving after 23.00 due to airport issues, we fully expected to be told, "dinner's in the dog" - not a bit of it - Laraichy and his team were the perfect hosts from start to finish, and stayed serving us until 2.30 am ! We had meal after meal of delicious local fare; quince and lamb stew with moroccan chocolate pudding to finish on the first night alone ... and anything we needed was brought to pool-side without a second's hesitation.
The location is unbelievable - snow-capped Atlas mountains on all sides, lush gardens, olive groves, cacti, dotted with yellows, reds, pinks and purples - with only birdsong and the occasional hee-haw of a local burro to break the silence - after one day it felt like we'd been there a week...
Accomodation is spotless, traditional and very comfortable.
We would say this is not a place for young children as the walking surfaces are uneven in places, and other than at the pool there is nothing else for you todo expect occupy yourselves with rest, reading and good conversation - we went with a few friends and this is the best way to enjoy the location.
Be careful with alcohol prices as a general rule - same or more expensive than home ... but as everything else is such good value it was a steal ...
A fantastic location and experience and we will be back !
