As long as you are aware that you are 15 mins by taxi from everywhere and the local area outside the hotel is ugly then this place is a perfect luxurious retreat from everything. The grounds are absolutely stunning and beautifully kept and the Garcia designed hotel is really plush though be aware it is dark marble and high fashion not simple Riad style. The rooms are perfect, great size and insanely comfy beds - we snoozed and lazed in the sun by the enormous pool ( beware its unheated). There were few guests so tranquility was ensured as opposed to the mamounia which when we went for a drink, seemed like Disney in comparison, full of hordes of naff tourists.
We found the service prompt attentive and helpful and the massage was great. Food wise we ate out most nights as the vast grand dining rooms is not the most relaxing, though one evening we had room service on the terrace which was lovely.
In summary, if you are seeking tranquil high luxury we highly highly recommend this gorgeous place
