Arrived at 11.30 and had to wait until 3 for our room. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Shampoo and shower gels are provided but are small sachets with a few small soaps.
Get up early if you want a sun bed in a particular place, although if you are not fussy, beds are nearly always available in various locations around the pool. A few days before we left, the hotel management put up signs about not reserving beds around the pool and items being removed after 90 minutes, but these were not upheld and beds were still being reserved for several hours before people turning up and the beds being used. The swimming pool is freezing. I never saw more than half a dozen people in a very large pool at any one time. Even the kids needed encouragement to use it. Unbelievable for such a nice sized pool. Remember that this is a city hotel and no other form of water is available for entertainment i.e beach, so it makes the pool the only area for the whole hotel to congregate....... busy, busy, busy.
At times it was more like an 18-30's with all the music, noise and overlapping of activities.
The food was good, as were the wine and beer, but the cocktails were watery and tasteless (and we did try all of them just to be sure).
Did use both the Italian and Moroccan restaurants. A little disappointing as the food was exactly the same as in the main buffet and it was still help yourself buffet and no table service.
Did the guided tour into the city which was well worth it as it is quite intimidating and busy. Also my husband and son went quad biking which they really enjoyed.
Will we go back..... not to this hotel as we missed the choice of beach / pool but we would go back to Morocco.
