We were happy to be welcomed in such a friendly manner, with mint tea, by Laymia and Mohammed when we arrived, but it quickly felt overbearing. We had been in Morocco for over a week at that point and rather than asking, they went over the very basic basics with us again and seemed to be put off when we already knew that people were going to try to guide us and rip us off. We also felt some pressure to have dinner there the first night, which was presented as an option "with no pressure," but after they talked about the menu for 20 minutes, we felt pressure to agree... It was a bargain, at 100 dirhams each, and we were encouraged to bring a bottle of wine (which Mohammed had difficulty opening, corking the wine in the end). The dinner was good, and an easy option for our first night, but not one that we would have necessarily chosen.
Our room was nice enough, but the air conditioner dripped all night. When I explained this in the morning, Laymia said tha she would have someone take care of it, but it still dripped the second night, torturing us with the sound and creating a huge puddle on the floor. Also, the door to the bathroom was a shower stall door, sealing the room off from the bedroom because there was no wall or curtain seperating the shower, which was located in the middle of the room between the sink and the toilet, from the rest of the bathroom.
We left early our second morning and they were nice enough to pack us a breakfast of yogurt drink and cocnut cookies.
Loud music was played until 11 PM in the common areas, which we found to be excessive.
