This place is a perfectly nice resort near the desert in Morocco. It was a great place to spend a few days recharging on our two week trip, but I wouldn't go to Morocco just to see it.
The hotel has all kinds of amenities, the room and pool are nice and the food is pretty good (not great, but a VERY welcome bit of culinary diversity in the land o' Tagines!). There's a good bar with good service and a staff that can help you arrange for sightseeing trips (like camel rides into the desert or 4x4 driving).
If you are doing a road trip trek around Morocco, I recommend a few days R&R at this resort.
A couple of notes on seasons. We visited in January (it was COLD) and we were literally the only people in the whole hotel of over a hundred rooms. The place was open and we got served, but it was like a ghost town with regard to other guests (again, though, the staff was present and the place was fully functional). I am guessing that the place is pretty happening in the summer, when the pool and rooftops would be a great hangout for sun lovers, and probably quite the minor league party scene....Consider when you are going and the weather, because it will impact the ambiance and your experience, I would guess.
