If a hotel can be romantic, this is it. Lovely lobby, bar and library area. Public spaces are beautifully decorated with artifacts from all over Africa. The garden is lush, with the most fantastic cricket and frogs sounds after dusk (except smoking is allowed there, and it carries to the pool dining area). BEAUTIFUL, well maintained pool and spa. The hotel service is quite good, and the staff very thoughtful and accomodating. The food and dinner service in the main dining room, the Maghreb, is decent but overpriced given that it is neither inspired nor interesting (particularly if you are vegetarian or vegan), excepting breakfast which is consistently good. The gym is small but well equipped with a reasonable selection of cardio, weights and machines. Spin and other classes, though few at night. All the rooms have great light and lovely hardwood furniture and appointments, great bedding.
The hair salon ambience and service is inconsistent with the rest of the hotel but there are other options available nearby.
