I have to say, this hotel was superb! we also stayed during ramadan (13-21 sept) but the staff were still really friendly, always said good morning and were very pleasant. I dont speak a word of french, but the staff did really well trying out their english on us.
The room was amazing, we had a fantastic view on the forth floor, overlooking the sea, it was jaw dropping! The rooms were spotless, cleaned every day.
The only negative thing i would say is that drinks in the hotel are double what you would pay elsewhere.
We went b&b so we had the opportunity to go out and find some lovely resturants, we were paying about £20 each for a good 3 course meal and drinks, however not much night life, so as long as you dont mind drinking in resurants and soaking up the atmostphere then its fine.
The shopkeppers are quite scary as first, but so long as you have your wits about you and go prepared then youll be fine.
I recommend the sahara trip, its hard work, your on the bus for a long time, but you see an awful lot. Its deffo worth £85, be warned, you stay overnite in a 3* hotel! its a shock to the system after staying at the saphir palace!
We had a fantastic holiday here, I would go back again tomorrow if I could! x
