We stayed there for 5 nights in the middle of February and enjoyed a wonderful break from winter in the UK. The staff were outstanding - on call whenever you needed them but never intrusive. They couldn't do enough for us, making sure that we had whatever we needed.
Pros - so many but here are the highlights:
Beautiful lodge with wonderful grounds
Close to town, with hourly free transfers to Medina walls.
Staff can arrange trips to Atlas Mts etc.
Aziz, one of the managers, was very kind to us and even posted something to UK that we had left behind!
Cons - only a couple, and only mentioned to help future travellers:
The Mucha suite is lovely, and has a private outdoor courtyard where you can have breakfast every morning! Perfect. But just keep in mind that the beautiful tiled bathroom is across a short corridor which provides access to another room, so is not entirely private. It's not a big issue, but it's not that clear on the website that you need to go out into a public area to get to your bathroom. However, once we'd got used to this, we decided that the excellent room rate for the Mucha suite is still worth it for a lovely room and getting access to all the facilities that the hotel offers. This did not detract from our stay, but was a surprise when we first arrived.
The food at the hotel is good, but we found the food in the Medina to be more authentic.
Would definitely go there again!
