“Uneven”
Reviewed 8 January 2012

In Tangier on business. Hotel is ok. Room is nice, bed is comfortable. Food is good but very expensive. They also have a good gym and great view of bay and city. Staff is very friendly.

Issues:

-Complex process to access internet. Should be seamless, instead is clunky.
-Shower is built for people under 4'10". I almost broke my neck trying to use it.
-Bathroom had no toilet paper when I arrived. This made for an awkward experience. This is a first for me worldwide. Hotel went from 4 to 3 stars due to this alone.
-Maddening air con/ heat system in room. I had to open all windows to cool the room off. Unbearable.

Room Tip: Pick rooms that have toilet paper.

We did not stay at the hotel but went to the casino for the evening while in Tangier. They have slots and video roulette on the first floor, live tables, more slots and a buffet on the second floor, and the top floor has a sit-down restaurant and lounge area. We ate at the restaurant- the food and service were good. The slots and tables were standard European/American style, with Black Jack, 3Card Poker, live roulette, and Ultimate Texas Hold 'Em. They also have full bar service and there was live music the night we were there. We were pleasantly surprised.

Room Tip: See other reviews for room info. I only saw the casino.

I stayed there for a couple of days during July. The building is a nice and so are the employees. There show a lot of respect and they seem to be really friendly all the time. Especially the "low" staff (like i.E the guys who clean the toilettes) did a really good job. Some of them speak not so good english but I think thats OK since they all can speak very fluent french,arabic and spanish. The "upper " staff nows english and all the others they now a few words basically.

Food was excellent. The restaurant is good and so is the buffet within the casino. The room service is OK. However I would definitely not eat the pizza there. The bugers where great, noodels are too but I did not like their pizzas. Tanjine however , the most famous thing in maroccan cuisine, was great. I could eat that all the time. Also the locals in the casino told me that the Tanjine in the hotel is a good one.

The pool was really big. There is a small indoor part and a huge outdoor. The beach is really close but there is no direct connection. You can see the beach and its just in front of the hotel but there is a wall between. But trust me you do not want to swim there I would stick to the pool.

The rooms where good as well. You never need to wait for elevators since there are 3 of them. The room is nice and the balcony has a nice view on the shore.

Oh and and I forgot they are making a new part of the hotel where there will be a modern bar. This could be a great thing since there is not so much you can do at nights in Tanger(well besides cinqo cinqo cinqo ;) )

If I come again to Tanger this is the hotel I want to stay in. A few lacks but overall a pleasant stay.

The hotel is ok for that categorie, but nothing special. We stayed in nicer, cheaper Moevenpicks in Jordan. Price for food in the restaurant was also ok for the kind of hotel, but the next day we saw that there are also very nice restaurants on the beach in Tanger with good view and much cheaper. I think the name of one of it was Panoramic. Tanger is nicer than expected.

The common areas, lobbies, and lobby bar all look grand, clean and inviting. However, once on our floor and shown our room....DISGUSTING!! The room's decor is some type of 1970 bamboo/wicker, the dresser and wardrobe (with only a few hangers, requested more, never received) are all on wheels, the head board of the bed are all wicker with two tacky plastic vinyl covered back pads hanging from it, the paint on the walls in the bathroom are all scuffed and dirty, the shower head is hung incredibly low (I am 5'4 and had to duck slightly, my husband is 6'1), the in room crib we had asked for had stains on the mesh on the sides, and stained linens (the baby slept in the bed with us), the airconditioning feels more like a fan, it was cooler when we slept with the balcony door open, and the tiled floors left my feet black. I mean it was not to be believed- at a "5-Star Hotel"?!! Went to the breakfast buffet- the cheeses are left out and sweating, as are the meats, fruits looked unappetizing- and the prices are insane. DID NOT EAT HERE.
We used the parking lot, and on one of our last days the attendant did not let us in and said there were no parking spots left. I had a sleeping infant on my shoulder, baby bags, shopping, etc. and I could see in plain sight four or five parking spots. It was an attendant we hadnt seen all week and hadnt been appropiately bribed/tipped in order to be courteous or even just do his job.
Oh- and to top it off- most of the week we were there, they were refinishing and painting the wood around the pool patio and the toxic fumes wafted up to our room. AWFUL!
The morning of our check out- they came up to our room, while we were still packing up and went thru the room and minifridge to calculate any costs on missing items, completely gauche!
There is NOOOO WAY this hotel is even a true four star. Have been to many 4 star hotels that were immaculate and modern and felt more luxurious, and for the price that the Movenpick charges?!!!
6 months after my trip I am still angered when I think of my stay here; the service, the lack of cleanliness and the exorbitant costs- OUTRAGEOUS! Next time I will go to Le Mirage further up Caps Spartel.

I thought this hotel would be a highlight of our trip around the Med. I disliked it so I will keep the review simple.

Good points:

Room was clean, tidy and well equipped.
Pool is large and refreshing.
Breakfast is well organised and tasty (well the yoghurt and Orange juice anyway).
Breakfast staff were friendly, as was the concierge.
The spa facilities are good, and the staff there excellent.

Bad points:

ALL the food is a rip off and diabolical. The breakfast is fine, but not worth £25 each. Evening meals were just plain disgusting...are there even any chefs? Dry chicken...chewy steak, prawns in meals with bits of shell on, its either on or off for me, not leave a little bit on...they didn't want to know either.
Reception staff were useless. Spoke neither English nor French (its an international hotel).
G&T at the bar i around £8. Considering that is the price of a litre of gin in Morocco, I thought this was frankly cheeky.
Shower head in the room is 4.5ft off the ground, so ok if you are 6.
about 3 miles to any meaningful part of town from here.
Hotel was confused and poorly organised.
Oh and prepare to got rugby tackled on check out after paying. The security staff turned hostile once you have paid.

I really expected a Swiss hotel to be the bees knees. Just book somewhere else, this place is just a shambles.

Room Tip: Get a sea view. Great to look over the bay of Tangier and see the birds migrating from Europe.

After spending 2 weeks here last summer we returned for another 2 weeks with our 2 year old. We didn't leave the hotel much as purposefully wanted a sun/pool/relaxing holiday and the hotel is great for young kids. The pool is lovely and spacious with lots of interesting features to keep kids busy and a nice sized baby pool. There is also a playground near the pool which our son loved. As it was ramadam a lot of the usual pool side bbq/bars weren't open but the poolside restaurant served great food every day and had high chairs. The staff were great with kids and generally the Moroccans are very warm towards children which makes it an easy place to come to with young kids. If you're looking for an easy holiday with young kids then this is a great hotel to choose from as the rooms are spacious enough to fit a cot, have balconies and everything is very child friendly. The beds are very comfy, bath is nice and big, shower is powerful (but as others have indicated you have to be very short to fit under shower head, but I believe this should be renovated soon). Just wish it was sunny in the winter so that it could be a winter sun destination!
