I recently stayed in this hotel and I truly liked it.
The hotel is nicely situated at the sea with a superb terrace and beautiful sea views. The rooms are well appointed but slightly on the small side and with indirect sea views. A complimentary mini bar with soft drinks is a nice gesture, but given the room price one shouldn't expects less.
All staff are very friendly and helpful. You really feel welcome at this place. Especially the night concierge is a lovely guy.
I only had dinner on Friday evening, and this was a buffet. Before entering the restaurant I thought I'd landed in a private function in the hallway but was quickly greeted by Mr. Raphael Mukarji who invited me to this weekly cocktail function they arrange for their guests. Mes compliments Mr. Mukarji, bien fait! You feel treated like a real guest.
The buffet was slightly disappointing. Starters consisted mainly of salads. My first bite in the fish fillet ended up with bones, so it was my last bite as well. The chicken however was boneless, as
was the fillet of beef and both nice. Both the rice and potatoe dish were bland. Desserts were plenty and I had an average piece of cake (which looked far better than it tasted) and a good pear tart. Some room for improvement here for the singing head chef. Prices of wine are quite hefty, but this is what you can expect. However, MAD 70,00 for a small glass of Moroccan white is steep. Breakfast buffet was very nice, especially while sitting outside. However, this to comes with a price.
One complaint though, the airconditioning in my room didn't function properly.
All in all this is a 5 star hotel with 5 star prices. However, I'll rate it 4 star for the time being, as there is room for improvements. But at the same I would love to come back and add the 5th star to my next experience
