I'm surprised to hear such poor reviews of this hotel. I have lived in Morocco for several years and stayed at many hotels all over the place and this is one of my favorites! Jack Beach is also one of my favorite beachs. It certainly is not touristy, and is a bit out in the rural area, but most of Morocco is rural and it's a great way to see the real Morocco while also staying in a very nice hotel.
I was first introduced to the hotel when my husband and I went to have 'breakfast' during Ramadan last year with a friend visiting from Europe. The meal was really lovely (a large variety of authentic Moroccan food-even my Moroccan husband who usually hates the quality o fMoroccan food in restaurants thought the food was great) and the staff very friendly. Also, the dining room was superbly decorated with gorgeous gardens right next door.
When my parents came to visit us a few months later, I chose this hotel to stay at. Their room was superbly decorated and comfortable--very modern. The staff wasn't particularly helpful this time, but we also didn't really need their help with anything. We also have a car, which made it quite easy to get back and forth between the city (the drive is really lovely!) Also, the restaurant was disappointing. They had a large tour group that they were serving buffet style Moroccan food, but said we were not allowed to eat there (only French food at the other restuarant). The service was extremely slow and bad and the food sub-standard. I would definately recommend insisting on eating the Moroccan food there. Otherwise, though, my parents really enjoyed the gardens, the close access to the beach (more locals than tourists, but I personally find that more interesting), and the beautiful room. I would definately stay here again, although perhaps eat at the cafe a few meters away where they serve great fried fish and salad on the terrace overlooking the ocean.
