The hotel isn't a 5 star but more like a 3 or 4, be aware there is a tax each night, $6. We arrive about ten and they got our room ready within 15 minutes and were very welcoming. The hotel's views aren't very nice, sort of in a shopping or hotel development area but once on the roof you get a beautiful view of the atlas mountains. The canopy beds and loungers around the pool are nice, and prices for food and drink alright, especially considering it's within the hotel: about .50 cents for soda, $4 a beer, $10 cocktails and $10 for sandwich/salads which were very good. There's free shuttles twice a day to the medina (about 15 min drive) at 930 and 3 so you can easily see everything and they pick you up at 12 noon or 8pm. If you don't make those shuttles, they'll bring you for $2.50 a person to where ever you need and pick you up for another $2.50. Get the hotel to pick you up and drop you off if you can, much cheaper than the rates the taxis try to charge, $15 flat rate this. The reception provided a great 'Top Ten' guide for us to use and helped recommend restaurants and sites to see. The excursions are reasonably priced in comparison to what outside vendors charge, we did the camel ride for $25/person for an hour, though they would have gone longer we just got too hot. The room was large, a little dated and no windows but still very nice. We had birds chirping loudly outside but they stopped at night, though would begin about 7am. Breakfast went until 11 so didn't have to wake up early for it and was good, basic croissants, fruit, deli meats, eggs and coffee and oj. The pool is basic but nice and again the lounging areas fine with towels, beach bags, and hats provided, ambient music playing and never was at a lost to find a spot to lay out. The drivers, receptionists, and waiters were all very nice and I would go back.
