This hotel provides the great service and quality that you expect from the Riu chain. The facilities are good and all parts of the hotel are very well maintained and very clean. The rooms are well equipped and comfortable with lots of storage space (but no drawers) and a refrigerator that is stocked with bottled water daily. The Pool is huge and although the water is cold, once you take the plunge it feels good and very invigorating. The pool area is spacious and clean with lots of sunbeds and a few very comfortable padded lounge areas (if you get up early enough to get one). The food is good and varied and there is such wide choice that there is sure to be something to suit all tastes - make sure you try the Moroccan dishes which are delicious. All staff throughout the hotel are very friendly, helpful and polite.Some reviews say that the walk to the reception is too far? The furthest block of rooms is a maximum of 5 minutes walk (at a slow pace) and after lazing in the sun and eating good food, you need a little exercise! The free shuttle bus into the city centre is a great service - just make sure that you book in advance at reception to ensure you get the times that you want. I was very surprised and relieved when we visited the Souk as you do not get much hassle or pressure to buy and I felt very safe when out and about. Don't miss the trip to the Atlas Mountains as it is a great day out with nice scenery and you get to visit a Berber House and experience their hospitality and mint tea. Morocco is a great destination for winter sun and only around 3.5 hours flight from the UK - we will be back!
