There was no access by car to the hotel due to construction on the day we arrived. Walking four blocks is acceptable but not with heavy luggage in tow. Just picture it-- the hot pink baby grand in the lobby. The room was heavily laden with the artificial spray of orange blossoms a la nicotine. The decor was outdated and...

We spent 2 nights in this hotel in Mid March. The hotel is very well situated, just outside the Medina and across the road from the beach. It was a perfect place to relax and enjoy the interesting town. The hotel is very stylish. Beautiful furniture and artwork in public spaces. The rooms were well proportioned, comfortable, with large balconies....

Never been disappointed this much before. "Heated" pool means 20C. Came back from lunch to find no towels in the room - called housekeeping - 2 hours later still no towels - went down personally to reception - finally delivered 30mins later. Air Conditioner in the room needs freon top up - lowest setting at 5C + max fan speed,...
