We stayed here for 4 nights in Sept 2013, we had a flight and hotel deal through dialafight.
The hotel is very grand and ideally situated about 15 mins drive from the airport and just outside the medina wall.
We had lunch a couple of times at the Oasis pool bar restaurant and that was very good, pool bar drinks are not cheap! We also had dinner one evening in the L'Orangerie where the service and food was very authentic and good! Not too pricey for a 5 star hotel.
The breakfast was served in Le Jardin restaurant, buffet with just about everything you could want, although if you want pork bacon you collect it raw from another counter then get the 'Egg Chef" to cook it. The staff need more training, lots of them at breakfast, standing around doing nothing when there were tables that needed clearing and relaying.
We had trouble trying to get the mini-bar restocked which proved very frustrating.
They leave all the lounger cushions out to get wet if it rains, which it did most evenings, sometimes torrentially, so laying on them they felt damp, not the most comfortable feeling!!
The hotel organised a walking guide into the souks for about £25 which was very good.
