Whilst I can't add a great deal different to what's already been written about this hotel the fact that the staff were so great means I must write something, from the waiters to the security guards I couldn't find fault, so friendly, courteous, hardworking and helpful. (Does trying to speak a little French help? Shouldn't but it was fun anyway). Our room was spacious and kept clean, I'm marking it down though because the water bottles weren't always sealed, we think they were being topped up - from a source unknown but this was reported to the hotel), also I expected my 12 year old to be on a proper bed, not on the settee. Location - Shame there's nowhere to walk to but courtesy bus service was fine and taxis were cheap enough (if a little scary)! Value - well I think we got a fair price but only because we booked up when the hotel opened and Thomson had a good deal on. Food - well this is why I'd had enough after a week, don't get me wrong, there was plenty of it and it was hot but it was.....bland, even in the Italian/Morroccan. We ate out to get a bit of the local flavour, the tagines were like chalk and cheese. I know they're catering for the masses but you can still give dishes flavour without omitting salt/herbs/spice altogether. Also, Iunch was a bit of a bun fight, too small a dining area to cope at busy time). Pool area was OK, a bit cramped and my husband could have done without getting up early to reserve a bed before breakfast but when everyone does it what else can you do? It's up to the hotel to stop it from happening. Would I go back - no, too many other places in the world to visit. Would I recommend this hotel to a friend - no, I'd say stay in the new city at one of the Riads much further up the TripAdvisor list.
