The hotel is amazing, which you can see before you even enter. There is a doorman outside, and ocasionaly you may have to walk trough the security area and have your bag checked. I didn't mind, but I didn't expect it since Marocco is not really considered to be under terrorist threats. But there is nothing wrong with an extra security meassure. The check-in went smoothly, the entire staff is very well dressed and everything looks very posh. Most of them speak french and understand english. The room was very specious and had a balcony. My room faced a backyard, however, The rooms on the other side would have a much better view. There is a garden and a swimming pool. One evening I ordered a room service which was brought in prompty and tasted excellent. The surrounding area and the city itself is quite boring, but the hotel made it worth for me to visit. If it wasn't for the great hotel I would have been pretty disappointed. I also wrote to the hotel after my stay regarding the frequent flyer points which I didn't receive and I soon received a phone call from the manager apologizing. He said he would forward my claim to their head office in Paris...but oh well, the french weren't bothered to look into the matter so I never got it. But I appreciated the effort on the Manager's part. All in all, the hotel is a fantastic choice for people who like to relax and a get the same or even better treatment than in any other country in the same climatic area, and of course pay a lot less. Everything, including the room rates, restaurants meals, room service is VERY cheap. I would give the hotel 6 stars.
