This is an absolutely beautiful place. All the touches are just quaint and luxurious and unique. the staff were nice and the service was good. My one concern is that you don't get a key to your room...they have a slide bar you can lock when you're in it, but when you leave you can't lock the room. I had no issues trusting the staff, but there are other people staying there and one never knows their intentions. Especially given that I was a woman alone in the room, it felt creepy going into my room at night and thinking that someone could be in there. Also, the owner was largely absent because she was sick. When we did see her we let her know that we were leaving very early the next morning and so wanted to settle up our bill (just one bottle of wine) that day so it would be taken care of. She said "ok" but then we never saw her again and never saw a bill. The next morning as we were literally walking out the door to our taxi and handing a tip to the hotel staff, he told us we owed $ for the bottle of wine. We had seen him the night before and at breakfast but for some reason he waited until we were walking out to bring it up. We had no more local currency left and he wanted us to pay in Euro. We are Americans and only had dollars so were back and forth trying to figure out the amount when we should have been on our way to the airport. Also, we tried to schedule a pedicure but the language barrier was too much and it didn't happen. If you don't speak Arabic or French, it will be a challenge.
