We've just returned from a 4 night honeymoon at the Cesar Hotel. From the moment we arrived we loved it, it is a beautiful hotel and as mentioned by other reviewers the customer service is brilliant. The hotel itself has 2 pools, the one on the roof was our favourite as we had it mostly to ourselves and it has beautiful views of the atlas mountains - you can request lunch up here. The medina is a good 10min taxi drive (would be longer in england but the Moroccans know how to drive quickly!) and really you should pay no more than 40MAD each way, more at night though - 1 night we also managed to get the horse and carriage back for 100MAD!
Breakfast was nice each morning but can get boring after a while as its the same everyday, very tasty though. I don't expect all staff in a foreign hotel to speak english and we certainly found that quite a few members of staff had brilliant English, taking a French dictionary may help when you don't know that much though. The spa was amazing, has a heated pool for any rainy days and we had a Hamman which was brilliant and very relaxing. They mainly speak French in the spa but if you're not sure, ask the hotel staff to speak to the spa for you.
Food at the hotel is delicious and presented beautifully but can be expensive. Carrefour is a 5 min walk (good place to get a taxi and haggle!) and has a food court upstairs where you can eat more cheaply if needed. We did this on a couple of occasions and it was very nice. You can also stock up on nibbles for the room from the supermarket.
Overall an excellent stay, hotel is well run and managed and we would definitely return in the future. Staying outside the medina is a real benefit as it can be too hot and intense 24/7.
