On arrival at the hotel we had to park a short walk away as you cant take a car up to the door of the hotel. We arrived amongst a huge amount of hustle and bustle on the streets which to most Europeans would seem like chaos but for Morocco this is the norm. We were met out on the street by Pauline the Manageress who greeted us at our taxi and had also arranged for our luggage to be taken to our rooms within the hotel. The short walk from the street to the hotel was an interesting opportunity to sample the delightful chaos of Morocco and as we arrived at the door of Maison MK there was a wedding procession with lots of people baring gifts and playing music going past, another culture experience right on the door step. As you walk through the door of the hotel it is a million miles away from the chaos out on the street and as soon as the door is closed the transition from chaos to serenity is instant!!!! We were greeted by all the staff who through out the stay were helpful and friendly and Pauline spent time showing us around and explaining the facilities of Maison MK. We were then taken to our rooms where much to my delight there was an iPod docking station with speakers surrounding the room for you to play a selection of music from the iPod in the room or for you to use your own. The room was very tastefully decorated, the lighting in the room is amazing, the bed was extremely comfortable, the mini bar was full, the bathroom was stunning and there were rose petals spread across the bed and the bathroom adding a stunning finishing touch. The room had fresh flowers, the linen and towels, dressing gown and slippers in the room where of very good quality and I can not find one single fault with the place. I am currently sitting here desperately trying to think of one single improvement of potential enhancement they could make to improve my stay and experience of Morocco and I can’t think of one single thing.
All that remains is a huge thank you and congratulations to Paul and his wife (the owners) for creating this hidden gem and to Pauline and the staff for making our stay a fantastic and memorable one.
