Lovely reception.....but don't get too excited!
There is NO Spa or Gym but the pool is great if you want to lane swim. It is very cold though because it is deep throughout so not ideal for kids eventhough there is a small shallow children's pool. There are Gyms in nearby hotels but you have to pay.
Internet is hang-yourself-slow and there is only one machine and not in qwerty.
Food is very average (mostly buffet which rarely varies). You can ask the chef to do omelettes if you are bored of the buffet. You can chose to take lunch or dinner at the hotel which is great - you MUST eat out in town as it is more authentic. Breakfasts fine at hotel and recommend the waffle/crepe-type msammen with honey.
Staff may seem a little off-hand (especially the 'managers') but they do 'warm-up' especially if you greet them in their own language! DO learn some basic arabic (hello, thankyou, no thank you...useful in the Souks! - good morning/evening etc) it really endears you to the natives.
Very useful free shuttle into town.
Rooms are tired but adequate. Insist on a pool view. Rooms have a fridge (but not for ice). You can get 'supplies' from a very large Carrefour supermarket in the shopping centre about 10 mins walk up the road (on the road heading TOWARDS the medina). Other shopping to be had there too.
All in all, we were not too disappointed with this hotel because we paid very little. I would have been upset if I had paid anything other than a bargain price.
