Villa Guest has pleasant gardens and a friendly welcome from which ever manager seems to be around at the time. January will find the B&B nearly empty. We changed rooms once as there is no ventilation for the bathrooms which are in the room you are sleeping in, causing a lot of damp atmosphere/smell. Given that it is January, the swimming pool is too cold to use, but nice to sit around for reading in the afternoon sun. There is no service for making tea or coffee anywhere in the room. The Hammam/ Spa is not working! This was such a shame as that was the one thing we were looking forward to using on a quiet evening. We used the public Hammam, which cost 12md = .90p which was great and my husband and I really enjoyed. Single sex, steam baths and a wonderful opportunity to meet some of the local ladies. Do not be put off by the scare stories of travelling on the local bus which is 4md into town. It is safe and you must be aware and confident. Day trips are very expensive. We took one as an opportunity for some photography. All it was was a driver on commission taking us to prearranged tourist traps for buying stuff. Very disappointing. The Best thing is to hire a car, 25- 40 Euro pd, buy a good map and be a relaxed and confident driver. The marrakech drivers seem reckless but they aren't, they drive at the speed limits set and overtake carts and smaller traffic, makes sense? Going where we wanted and when without anyone else trying to dictate to us for their own interest was fantastic. We stayed for a week so I became aware of a few issues: Unsafe electrics in shower area of room. Room no4 has a damaged lock and handle. Rubbish is burnt throughout the night and part of the day close to the villa, which gets into your rooms, clothes and lungs. Spa Not working. Evening meals offered overpriced. Night time in Jan cold so take extra woolies. NO SAFE in room. It states on website there is, but there is NOT. The picture of the Pool on the website is not the real one. The young men that work at the Villa on the reception are only allowed to call the deputy manager via a fax machine for anything that you might need help or advice with. This causes delays and misunderstandings. We had our expensive day trip delayed by 1.5 hours. If you decide to stay at the B&B, just use it as a base and be as independent as possible.
