Check in was so easy with drinks outside and then cases appeared in room. Breakfast was excellent - lots of freshly squeezed orange juice, pancakes, fruit and omlettes. Didn't need anything else until dinner but still ate lunch! Pool and jacuzzi very clean and lovely and nice and quiet around pool. Staff do anything and everything to help to make the holiday enjoyable. They arrange taxis and these are fixed price and reasonable so no need for bartering with the locals. Hotel arranges trips at decent prices.
The hotel is 25-30 minutes from the main Souk and El Fna but this is perfect as the centre is very busy and most people we spoke to regretted being anywhere centrally located.
The rooms are nice and spacious (for up to 4 in the Kasbah) with everything you need. They are very clean and have TV and DVD although we didn't find any English channels but didn't need to as it was much nicer to sit out on the Balcony and chill.
The hotel has a great Hammam for treatments which are reasonable compared to UK prices. Would recommend this hotel to anybody who wants a complete rest and to be pampered and looked after. Ali and Mohammed are excellent hosts and the rest of staff from cleaners, to pool attendants to waiters are very polite and courteous and want to make your holiday the best - and it was!!
