First the good point: No building work currently being carried out in or near hotel.
The taxi to the hotel is an experience; the cost is 200 dirham, £16.00. Barter, do not pay any more.
Check- in is speedy and then to your accommodation. Imagine the size of a semi - detached main bedroom, two single beds with en suite bathroom and that’s it. The television has one English speaking movie channel, the rest foreign. The food: Remember school dinners when you queued and it wasn’t very good, that’s it. One serving station for soup so you queue there, main course is set out along one table so you queue whilst the person at the front looks at each dish before deciding whether or not to put some on their plate. Tip: sometimes the food was only warm; I placed mine in a microwave to heat up. The food is only 3* as is the hotel. The entertainment is atrocious. Day time a m is darts. Lunch time; smooching to love songs, then the birdie song. Night time, kids sing in the bar and parlour games commence. O, by the way, whilst I was there, 9th till 18th Feb. Not oneEngilsh word spoken by entertainment team. This is and has been primarily a French visited hotel. Ladies, don’t bother taking nice clothes, the restaurant is more like a Woolworth snack bar. (Sorry Woolworth). The tables are set for dinner by placing an oblong paper place mat on Formica type table top along with a knife, fork and glass. Bottle water is usually brought to the table but wine, (no more than our cooking wine) which is served in a carafe, is on a table for you to collect yourself. The tables are not reset after the first use so you have to find your own place mat and cutlery. The French seem to wear the same clothes, work jeans and dowdy tops for breakfast lunch and dinner, and I mean the same clothes. The gym is adequate although it would be full if ten people use it at one time; the pool is ok but not large enough to have a serious swim. The sun beds around the pool are set on stepped terraces which is ok but to get to some beds, you have to straddle others. Ladies, whilst doing this, make sure you straddle the lower leg end, could be embarrassing should you stumble and land on the bedee!! All in all, as I have previously stated. This hotel is no more than 3* built in the mid 60 and the grounds look like a pebble dash concrete jungle. It is in the middle of nowhere, there is no public phone in or near the hotel and to make a call back to the UK you have to be connected at reception and they make a charge of £3.50 per minute. I would certainly NOT recommend this hotel for people with teenagers. I cannot comment on the kids club, although my wife says I sometimes act like a kid, on this occasion, did not use the club!!. I am a 60 year old teenager!!
