Ismail Moulay reportedly fathered 888 children, some of them in this building, which is a small, beautiful, old palace in a perfect location in Meknes. We spent one night, which was all we needed to see the highlights of the city and to visit nearby Volubilis. The food was about the best Moroccan meals we had on our whole trip, which was 17 nights and included some hotels that were several times more costly, and some restaurants that were highly touted but disappointing. If there had been more to see in Meknes we would have been happy to spend more time, but we moved to Fes at the end of the day. The only disappointment was that the little pool on the roof had no water. Not big enough for swimming, but it would have been nice for a dunk. The rooms were magnificent.
