I was really nervous after reading the reviews, but if you have already booked DON'T WORRY - there is nothing wrong with this hotel !! My room was spacious and clean, towels and bedding included, well-lit, and the air-con / heating worked (important in December because cold at night), the staff spoke sufficient English and were friendly and helpful. A couple of minor requests for replenishing toilet paper and fixing the safe when it jammed, were dealt with speedily and effectively - no hotel in the world is free of faults, it's whether they are fixed that matters.
There's a snack-bar open all day by the pool which does coffee, cakes and light lunches, but you can sit for as long as you like without being hassled. Yes it is quite a walk to the Medina, but the hotel does not pretend otherwise, and the upside is peaceful gardens and space to relax. Which would have been even further improved without the muzak, but minor point. To be in the midst of the hustle and bustle, a riad would be better.
I had a room in the main hotel block on the third floor, and no issues with noise at all, though maybe this was because the hotel was not fully booked - cannot comment on the relative merits of the bungalows.
Food was fairly average but I'm not particularly keen on Moroccan food so that's my problem :-) Christmas Eve dinner was lavish and tasty, and would have liked to spread it over several evenings.
