Our experience of this house was not the same as all the other glowing reports. Nice house in safe area but is tired. The manager gave us a mobile phone on arrival so that we could contact him if required but, we could not get through to him. We did not see him again until departure. We complained about the... more

Management response:

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience of Maison Africa which we are surprised to read. Aziz, your housekeeper, is usually extremely meticulous with his duties but unfortunately forgot to remove the laundry from under the stairs before your arrival. Usually he takes this immediately to the laundry for cleaning, along with the tea towels. We have discussed... more

A beautiful standard of accommodation, some lovely touches and a roof terrace to die for. Zahira looked after us and her love of children shows... more

The structure is very clean and well kept and has a real marroccan taste to it. We felt very at home. The dipping pool was a fun optional... more
