“No eggs for breakfast?!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2011

The hotel rooms were average, I was happy with the rooms. The food, now here is where we have problems. No eggs for breakfast, the breakfast was so boring, all you see is bread, bread and lots of bread and don’t forget the mint tea, not a healthy breakfast. The staff was miserable and they only speak a little English. The evening meal, lots of salad and bread, the main course was boring, we had to pay for water and for desert either a banana and an apple or a yoghurt. The receptionist does not have a smile on their faces, unbelievable. This hotel was like come here, pay and disappear, we don’t know how to make friends. If a couple is thinking of going to this hotel, please don’t, I will assure you; you will be depressed in a couple of hours, this hotel is very empty. Pay a bit extra and find a different hotel.

This Hotel leaves a lot to be desired, it advertises a buffet style meal service "nonsense" you are served one choice and are usually the left overs from the day before ! Restauarant staff are very rude and arrogant especially Mohammed who in my opinion should be sacked !! however Sherriff deserves every dirham he earns, hes a lovely man.
The Hotel is noisy loud music every night at the adjoining bar, frequented by Ladies of the night. The whole appearance is shabby, outdated, pool very shaded and not clean, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED, Lowcost holidays and Holidays for you should be reported to ATOL this hotel is the pits

Yes, the hotel has seen better days and is looking a little tired but it wasnt an expensive hotel so I wont complain. the room was quite large for a single and the bed was comfortable and bigger than a normal single bed. There was aircon/heating which worked and enough cupboard space for me and plenty enough blankets to keep me warm on a cold Moroccan evening. If you wanted it there was a tv that worked that had a channel dedicated to English speaking films with Moroccan/Arabic subtitles. The bathroom was large enough and it had plenty of hot water. The shower didnt quite fit properly in its holder and escaped a couple of times soaking the floor but the cleaner always cleared it up and gave me fresh dry towels each morning. The room was cleaned, beds made and fresh towels given every day. The breakfast was the same as in most hotels, many different types of bread type products, olives, butter and a selection of jams/honey. There was mint tea, teabags (I think) and coffee (though their coffee was probably the worst I have tasted in Morocco). There was a large balcony that opened onto the main road at the front. I was concerned about noise but with the door shut I couldnt hear a thing. If I had to make a complaint it would be that with the heavy doors and the noisy locks you were disturbed when people came in and out. I don't think you could be quiet getting in and out of your room if you tried! The hotel staff really were friendly and amazingly helpful, I could not fault them at all. Every staff member I came across really was an asset to the hotel. If I was after a budget hotel in this part of town I would definately use them again. Although I felt it was quite expensive for a late check out the hotel quite happily kept luggage behind the front desk.

Just out onto the main road, turning left is an eaterie called 404. If you are after budget food that tastes good then this is the place for you. If you turn right on the main road, just opposite the petrol station is a supermarket (Acimas?) that sells alcohol. Again turning left, the hotel is about a 5 minute walk from the train station and a 10 minute walk from supratours (turn right when you get to the train station). Though I didn't get the bus to the airport the number 19 takes you there and you catch it from near the tourist office. The medina was a 25 - 35 minute walk away.

My View this hotel was up to a very good standards in regard of clean, neat and also staff very helpful. Cleaning staff are very hard working and they clean and sort the room out plus they chnage teh towels everyday.
Breakfast is good enough and there is about good 10 items in the menu so you can just pick whatevery you like especially the Green Team or so called the Moroccoan Tea.

I liked my stay at this hotel and so did my partner there is not even one negative point I can mention about this hotel

Unfortunately read reviews after booking this place. Should have known what to expect when man on desk was more interested in watching the t.v. than checking us in. Booked for 10 nights but walked out after 5. Aircon did not work. Fridge in room did not work. Hot water was sporadic. There were sticky rings and old dried food residue on the hard surfaces. 1st night went down and sat at 'poolside' to order meal but only one item on menu was available so we had that but it was barely edible. Waiter appeared 5 mins later asking to be paid as he was going home. As 2 females (who were mindful how we dressed) we felt very intimidated as every evening the place filled with local men drinking smoking and partying into the early hours.Tried breakfast first morning mostly stale hard bread and pastries so didnt bother next few mornings. Bought water, juice and crisps at nearby supermarket. The staff were surly, and disinterested apart from the maid who we could exchange greetings with and who changed the towels every day we were there. We managed to book a fantastic place called Riad Ariah after we walked out and thats when our 'holiday' really began.
