“Tired and dilapidated”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

Didn't intend to go to this hotel but our party was bumped out of our booked hotel in Fes. The setting is lovely and the beds were a good size and the pool is quite good but those are about the only positive things. The whole place feels like it hasn't been touched for 30 years, with peeling paint and dark interiors. There was orange peel and dust between our beds and cockroaches in the bathroom. The food was OK but nothing remarkable though people did praise the omelettes at breakfast. Too remote from Fes to make it accessible eg for evenings so I would only recommend it if you want to be in the countryside. Not quiet at all by the way - calls to prayer heard clearly and the noise of people talking carried in the corridors, as did the noise of kitchen staff from 6 a.m. and some machine thumping away half the night.

Room Tip: keep away from rooms near kitchen and dining room

This is more or a romantic getaway than a city break hotel. Whilst it is very remote, it is also beautiful. Driving to the hotel through the countryside and the mountains is an experience itself - however make sure you negotiate the price with the driver before leaving!! (From Fés airport, price should be 300 dhms).

The food here is not Moroccan. It is British food - awful British food at that. The 'salade mixte' contained pineapples, apples, carrots, bananas, salad leaves, olives, fish....bit of a medley from the kitchen really!

However, if you are not planning on staying here for that long and you can deal with average food, this place is a pretty cool for a stopover. Good views, nice staff and very relaxed.

Room Tip: Make sure you request a room with a balcony.

I already read a review about this place saying that the moment you left they would come after you for money, next time I will listen to what people say here on the reviews: I got there on a Friday and the gentleman at the front desk gave me a 45€ deal for 2 nights, I payed and was tired from the trip and forgot to ask for an invoice, on Monday that gentleman was not working, and the people there would not let me leave the hotel and tried to extort 45 more euros, saying I didn´t pay, they yelled and insulted me for 1 hour under the scorching sun, and was held against my will, they would not let me go, I was totally terrorised by these people, crying to the top of my lungs, and asked a modern looking Morroccan lady to call the police, to my surprise she went and payed the 45€ and they let me go, i couldn´t believe it, one of the most surreal situations in my life

we booked two rooms, one for my wif and me and one for my children, we stayed 10 days. the staff were very nice especially restaurant staff, the food was OK, but a lot of works must be done to improve the rooms, leak of water in bathroom, the balcony is dirty, the chairs and the table in the balcony seem are from WWII,
animation in the swimming pool is very poor.
the village of moulay yacoub is very nice and safe.

We booked a bungalow in the grounds as being a mountain retreat we thought this would be a wonderful place to relax for a few days. When we arrived we were taken to the 'bungalow' - it was AWFUL'!! It smelt, the soft furnishings were filthy and there were a load of cigarette burns - the kitchen was rudamentary to say the least and the bathroom - well, best not say. The 'terrace' had high walls and had not been swept for months - covered with grime and grot thoughout....We expressed our disappointment and were moved to a bedroom in the hotel, this was better but still not of a very high standard with chipped and broken furniture, coffee cup rings throughout and a bathroom that looked as though it was last cleaned in the 1970's!! We stayed two days and then checked out. The bar was dark and miserable. The restaurant was OK and the service good, food of a reasonable standard and reasonable value - decor - out of the 70's - general level of cleanliness was poor - OK in the public areas, which are the areas that they photograph - last straw was the swimming pool - it was 2'6" deep throughout - hopeless for swimming and too deep for a paddling pool for the kids!! This is a wasted opportunity - in the most wonderful of locations and the worst hotel I have ever seen......do NOT visit here

We had a great time @ Moulay Yacoub..Service was great. Just squeezed Fresh orange juice. Great ambience..Thermal spa is cheap for foreigners..Full body massage and other treatments for less than $100.00 USD. I would definitely go again. The townspeople are great also.

  • Liked — the view from our private patio..Rolling hills and orange trees.
  • Disliked — nothing
