The gorgeous gardens with roses, fruit trees and olive groves, the stunning pool and the rustic but classy rooms make this an inviting place to relax away from the hustle and bustle of the medina. We were looking for somewhere a little special and we certainly found it here.
The garden restaurants are very relaxed and the food is good but the choice is a little limited and they could definitely do with a few more vegetarian options. You need taxis to get in and out of town, which can add expense, but that's the trade off for expansive grounds and tranquil surroundings. WiFi is free but erratic and doesn't always reach the rooms - usually okay near reception.
Overall, we loved it and would happily have stayed longer!
