OK, the hotel is absolute fantastic, but like in whole Morocco you need to be careful. I have read previous reviews here and I was warned about additional costs. There where list of prices of Mini bar so I can see before all prices. 4euro Cola, Fanta, Schweppes in 0,33 can, also water in 0,5 bottle. 9 euros 0,1dcl for votka, gin, wiskey, and 6euros for 0,33 can of Heineken.
I took Fanta and Schwppes on first night, and that was all I took form Mini bar in my 3 night stay. Next day they didn't put new can of Fanta and Schweppes and that was a problem because on the last day they tried to charge me like I took Fanta and Scheweppes two times. So watch on that if you don't want to have a problem. Also on final bill they wrote that I have consume a bottle of wine, and cola light in L'Oriental bar, and that I have sign the bill with my room number to charge me that. But I didn't took that, and they cannot find that bill, but I need to write all that on that bill that I didn't do that. Finally I paid only 8euros for what I took fro the mini bar.
Besides that everything was fine. Rooms are biiiiggggg, beds are great, I sleeped very well. TV has lots of programs including all JSC Sports package, there are lots of movies and music you can watch and listen on TV. In rooms there are ADSL and in the looby they have WLAN, both free of charge. Breakfast is similar every day, there are 6-7 hot, and also 6-7 cold meals, and you can eat as much as you can. I have used outdoor pool, even at the cloudy day when it was 18°C till 4 pm. After sun came up it was not a problem to be in the pool.
We have used hotel van to go in the city for 1 time (free of charge, but have a scheduled start), all other times we used taxi. There was WTCC race around the hotel in those days so every taxi driver tried to charge us 15euros for a drive to or from Djelma el Fna, as they told us that they need to go around, but that was a tipical lie so 5-6 euros (50-60 dirhams) is enough at the day, and 9-10 euros at night. Just told them that yesterday you have paid 50 dirhams and how it's possible that today is 150 (usualy they start with 150 dirhams).
I didn't have a time to use a Spa.
If you want to have relaxing and quiet vacations this is a great place.
