We had a lovely stay here. It's very pretty and Mohammed the manager is fun. However we were obliged to move from one of our carefully chosen rooms to a different one because the double bed was needed for other guests so one member of our party got a bed in an annexe attached to a reception room! Another member of our group had to move rooms because someone had specifically booked the one they were in. It's not great to have musical rooms on a three night stay! We were recompensed by a free tour (for one of us, the rest had to pay) into the hills nearby including a visit to a local beauty spot and a trip to a Berber farm.
The hammam was somewhat basic and rather costly (you pay the manager and he gets a woman in) but it was relaxing.
Breakfasts were fine and the roof garden is a pleasant place to sit.
We had tagine cooked by the staff one night instead of going out. It was also fine but the wine they served was undrinkable.
Verdict: Charming but disorganised and I see from another review that this is not an isolated incident.
