Reviewed December 16, 2011

We booked for four nights and stayed eight in November 2011. Charming, helpful staff. Good breakfast. Clean and cleaned daily. Not the greatest setting but extremely good value. Walk along beach to town is wonderful and a taxi back is around 70p.

Arrived with a group of friends, booked in advance half pension
Some of the rooms given were humid and very basic, but worst of all is that they had no windows lock and were in the basement ! So, anyone could get in easily.
ASked for another room and first they said that was no possible. After further discussion they gave me another room but other colleagues had not the same luck
Dinner from other side was very poor, so that we went next day to other place to eat.

this is the second time we have been to this hotel and have no faults with it at all, the staff are always friendly and greet you with a smile, the rooms are immaculate and cleaned to a high standard daily, even though it is a way from the main square you have the best beach to walk along and if you are feeling lazy then you can get a taxi for no more than 10 dirhams which is a bargain when you think how much a taxi is in marakech, will definetly be visiting again

Room Tip: all rooms are good

Comfortable hotel with a friendly staff
This tourist class hotel is clean and comfortable
It located in a residential district 40 minutes easy walk from the centre of town and five minutes from the beach
Breakfast was excellent - dinner looked a little expensive for not an exceptional menu
Parking is on the road - small shop opposite useful for water and other holiday essentials
The small but ample Pool was a valued addition
Hot water was not always available quickly
The Free wifi (via a 3G connection ) worked one day but only in part of the hotel on the other day not able to maintain a Skype connection
Overall I would happily recommend the hotel

My husband & I stayed here and we liked it. We got a rental car & drove from Marrakesh. We found it easy to find. And, we drove right up on the sidewalk & parked. The staff were very nice. Since we were staying 7 nights, they upgraded us to a bigger room. We only paid something like $50/night. The room had a large/king bed, a huge armoire-type dresser on one wall, end tables, w/ lamps, a few carpets. You could see the ocean from the windows. Very safe, residencial neighborhood. There were several low to the ground type couches, surrounding a round coffee table-type thing, & a TV. Bathroom w/ tub. Exceptionally clean. We ate several times from the restaurant, mostly room service, & it was good. The breakfast was great. I remember fresh squeezed orange juice, a hard boiled egg, & various "sweets." The walk to the souk/medina was maybe 20 minutes, less when you start seeing a couple of restaurants overlooking the ocean. We ate at one several times. Mmmmm... good...Ah, the tangine! After the second time, the waiter shook our hands like we were old friends! It was nice to be out of the hustle & bustle of the square. We took day trips w/ the rental car to Aljadir & the surrounding areas. I sat out by the little pool & read once. It was nice. There was one English channel that showed American movies. We didn't really watch TV. But we did watch a little Moroccan channels. It was a little chilly on some nights. No heat in the room. My husband didn't mind. And once I got into bed, I was fine. All in all, a very good experience. We would stay there again. There looked to be a lovely hotel in the square for $150/night, but we liked this hotel. We saved our $ for a rental car, plane tickets to other destinations on this trip, etc. We enjoyed ourselves.

When we turned on the shower at 11pm we woken up the whole hotel. It sounded like we were destroying the room but we only put on the bathtap and shower. Room was small but really clean. Swimmingpool was freezing cold and breakfast was ok , coffee was heated more than once...

the problem with this hotel is the distance from the beach and the medina (10 minutes walking the beach and 20 the medina). but if you are looking for somewhere to sleep far from the crowd and the noise, and if you don't care that rooms are small and not very clean, then this hotel fits for you, above all if you don't mind walking (as we did) or you have a car. we paid 540 dh (50 €/70$) in october 2009
