Hotel is very clean and well kept and the staff are really friendly. However, the food, although is plentiful and a good variety at any one sitting, it is the same old thing night after night and after 14 days I could not wait to get home to eat something more substantial. There is no room service and should you miss dinner in the evening there is nothing nearby where you could buy a snack other than Mohamed's where you can purchase a bag of crisps!
I would suggest taking a supply of diarrhoea tablets.
Another downside is the fact that you need to be up early to reserve a sunbed as, despite notices to say that sunbeds should not be reserved before 0800h, guests were reserving them around 0730h which means that by around 0900h no beds were available by the pool.
Cleaning staff tended to be very noisy and were banging on the door at 0810h to clean room - this was not appreciated as we were on holiday and wanted to sleep in.
Should you manage a get a bed by the pool then I would advise that you try to avoid the beds that are placed near the middle of the bool on both sides as this is where they put the goalposts when they play water polo which can get quite competitive and the ball leaves the pool hitting guests as well as the obvious splashes of water.
The hotel is a short taxi ride to Jama El Fnaa - we were charged MAD100 one way for a small taxi during the day and MAD150 in the evening.
Excursions can be booked via the Hotel Reception Desk, this is cheaper than booking with the Rep.
Hair dryers in rooms are not very powerful, so ladies, if you have long thick hair I would suggest you take you own else you will spend half the night trying to dry your hair!
Should you decide to sit in the reception area socialising in the evening, please note that lights were all turned off at midnight and if security felt you were being too noisy they would ask you to leave and return to your room!
