The bathroom is large and well designed,with bath, separate shower and toilet, all designed in marble. The staff are very helpful and friendly....

This is a very well placed Hotel just inside the Medina, so easy to walk to the Port and souk from. Lovely setting with a central courtyard, we had one of the few rooms that looked out away from the Medina so it was much lighter than the rest of the rooms which look into the courtyard and are rather...

This is a really lovely Riad. A relatively recent restoration with very comfortable, well appointed rooms, gorgeous courtyard, nice rooftop pool with great views, discrete but attentive staff and very good food. Just inside one of the gates of the medina, it is easy to access and close to the port and souks.

Went here for our honeymoon, and it was amazing. Fantastic service, really friendly. Rooms are kept really clean with snacks topped up every day. Roof terrace restaurant was so good, and great to have a big pool whilst still being inside the medina. You can walk really easily to the beach, takes about 15 minutes if you want to get...

I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough - it's the perfect location, in the medina but with a rooftop pool so feels like an oasis, the staff are all incredible and it's so peaceful! This is my second visit as I couldn't find another hotel in this incredible city that ticked as many boxes!

This hotel, part of the Relais and Chateaux affiliation, is exquisitely renovated. All the rooms open into the lush greenery of an open atrium. In addition, the staff is very helpful. We had the least expensive room, and it was simple and perfectly designed with a comfortable bed and a large and functional bathroom. The only snag for us is...

The hotel was everything you could wish for and more. The room was beautiful, the roof top pool area absolutely lovely and the service fantastic. Cannot fault this hotel at all - we would strongly recommend it to anyone who would like to stay in a little Moroccan oasis within the walls of the Medina!

A truly exceptional hotel. The staff - from the director, to the maid who cleaned the room - were friendly, natural and helpful in every way. The roof pool works beautifully, with immaculate service, and lovely snacks and drinks. The bedrooms open on to a spacious atrium, with a cloistered corridor on each floor, and a small fountain at the...
