“Too bad we stayed only one night”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

This is a lovely hotel, with a very large restaurant and bar area. The room was very private in the way it was situated - the hotel is laid out with rooms as separate "cabanas" - and in our case, only two rooms were in our "cabana". We enjoyed the breakfast buffet - the selection was wonderful. Don't miss the shopping across the street from the entrance!

Would recommend this hotel if you are planning to visit the Sahara desert as the hotel is 4 hours hair raising drive from the airport over the Atlas mountains! We went to see our son come in having run the Marathon des Sables and the trip was expertly arranged by Complete Morocco. info@completemorocco.com who only arrange bespoke trips to unusal places in Morocco. The hotel itself was beautiful and the service super - they even provided a full lavish breakfast for us all at 2.45 a.m. before our 6 hour drive to the finishing post ! Frankly, we were only expecting toast and jam. The rooms very comfortable and clean and the swimming pool and surrounding areas first class. Would highly recommend.

This is like an oasis of luxury in the desert city! The facade resembles a Casba wall, and seems foreboding. But you step inside, and it's all calmness, tranquility, and amazing movie memorabilia from many movies shot in the area by the local studios.

The rooms are laid out in garden style, and, again, from the outside appear quite ordinary. But inside, the decor is a perfect harmony of colors, textures and accessories: plush rugs, comfortable couches with large throw pillows, tapestries. The bedroom is a nice mix of modern furniture with local art & craft enhancements, large comfy bed, and spacious closets. The bathroom is equipped with all the latest amenities and top-line toiletries.

The restaurant is well-staffed, the service is efficient & courteous, though our dinner was a bit boring and flat in imagination and taste. However, the grounds of this property are absolutely amazing: everything is pristine, beautifully landscaped, also dotted with large movie props in the garden and around the pool, where the large draped cabanas, equipped with plush chaises and sofas, beacon you to step in from the heat.

If you are in this area, and want to sleep where the stars have slept, this is the place to be.

This hotel is a lovely oasis when coming out of the desert. The rooms are large, with a sitting room and 2 TV's. Beautiful swimming pool area and bar. Dinner and breakfast were both buffets with lots of choices and good food. A down side is that the WIFI does not work in the rooms, only in the public areas.

The staff member who checked us in was dismissive and unhelpful when our credit card got misplaced at the check in desk with him, saying that we should look for it ourselves and "next time, pay attention!" (direct quote). I politely confronted him about his behavior an hour later after we'd settled in, and continued to be dismissive. I informed a manager on check-out and he was similarly unapologetic and unsympathetic - this confirmed for us that this hotel is not in the business of catering to guests but simply to complete the rental agreement. The pool area is actually quite nice and a pleasant place to be. The room was clean, but outdated (door fixtures painted over, AC unit not functioning, no furniture on terrace). The movie props out and around the commons areas are quaint, but tacky.

Room Tip: Choose a room farther from the reception - the hard tiles outside make you hear every luggage roll b...

A rather unique hotel with links to the movie business - the lobby is full of props from films made in the area eg Cleopatra's throne. The rooms are of a good size and have a nice sitting area and all the facilities you need including free Wi-Fi. The pool area is large with plenty of comfortable beds including doubles!
Contrary to the expertiences of other reviewers we found the food good - we chose the buffet. In all cases service was excellent. In all an ideal stop if you are crossing the Atlas mountains and are en route to the Sahara.

Room Tip: Several of the rooms are a long way from the lobby - they are spread out in the gardens. Ask for a r...

It is a hotel made entirely for a travel stop over and it serves only that purpose. It is very standard and nothing special. Food is terrible and you can easily avoid eating at the hotel as the main square is a short walk away where there are many better options to eat and try out. We unfortunately had dinner and breakfast included in our package and ate both meals which were very bad!!! We even returned most of dinner uneaten and the waiter asked us, "Hope it isn't that you don't like the food and only that you are full"!! Breakfast was the standard fare as made for feeding bus loads of people. Few options when you are travelling and need a one night stop over.

Room Tip: All rooms are the same as it is an entire block of rooms - with 200+ rooms of the same type.
