My husband and I had booked a double room with terrace but were upgraded to a suite with access to the roof pool, shared with four other rooms. The furnishings were simple but elegant, which sums up the whole Villa. From the wonderfully scented bath oils, soaps and shampoos to the attentiveness of the staff - everything was "just so" and little things never seemed to be too much trouble. They even provided a mobile in the room which you could top up and use when out and about. All the rooms for general use are softly lit with fresh roses, fabulous coffee table books and comfortable sofas to lose yourself in. There is also a spa which offers hammam and massages.
The food was good. Dinner was delicious, if a little overpriced compared to some other places, but for the first night when we didn't want to be hassled with finding somewhere, it was perfect. The staff were happy to recommend other restaurants and book a taxi. Breakfast and lunch were included in the price of our trip and we came back after a morning's sightseeing to something good every day. The lunch menu isn't huge but there are two daily specials, generally a pasta and fish dish. The chocolate mousse is divine!
We would thoroughly recommend it to anyone else wanting to have a luxurious break that is more personal than perhaps some of the big hotels might offer. And it's within five minutes walk of Jemaa El Fna and the Souks so you don't have the hassle of hopping in and out of taxis all the time.
