"We had already had 5 nights stay in a Riad within the medina so booked Zalagh Kasbah hotel to relax for the last couple of days on a half board basis.
The hotel communal areas were quite grand are nicely furnished with moroccan features, the staff spoke english & were attentive. Our room (#2010) had comfortable bedding, a good shower and balcony overlooking the pool. The one downside was that the room above was quite noisy late at night - although this was not the fault of the hotel/staff I suspect that because many of the surfaces are tiled the noise traveled alot more as there isn't anything to absorb the sounds!
Breakfast was the usual continental & we found it to be adequate, the evening meal was buffet style - not very exciting and the hot food was not very hot. Drinks could be quite expensive at about £3 for a small bottle of beer & almost £5 a glass of wine.
The hotel is about a five minute taxi ride from jemma n fna but there is a free shuttle bus to/from the hotel every couple of hours. Carrefour & Almezar shopping centre with nice fashion shops & lots of eateries are an easy 5 minute stroll (we bought some nice bottles of Rose wine to drink on the hotel balcony for about 38 drms roughly £3 at the carrefour)."
The hotel staff are happy to organise any excursions to the dessert or mountains as well as other daytrips.
Don't think the spa is open yet as there seems to be some work in progress.
"Haggle for everything!!
taxi drivers asked for about 100 dirhams to the square we never paid anymore than 30 dirhams (less than £3).
We paid 50 dirhams from the hotel to the airport!!
Prepare yourself for the queues at passport control when entering & departing. The airport pretty much keep you in the dark if the flights are delayed - our flight was delayed more than 2 hours but there was nothing on the departure boards to indicate the delay & the airport staff told us nothing until 15 minutes before our aircraft arrived."
