My family stayed at the Golden beach Motel for 10 days on April 2014.We chose it because of it's price (56Euros/night)and it's location, since we wanted something right on the beach.
We could not have made a better choice!The part of the beach is excelent, and because it is private, it is relaxing and quiet.It seamed that it had one of the largest private beaches in the area...Th only bad thing about it , is the view of an ugly factory, right next to the hotel...
However, the water is sallow and crystal clear, while the sandy beach is kept very clean by the motel's staff.
There is a nice pool, also for little children.
The building itself, is not new. It could use some renovation. However, it is kept clean, and so was our room everyday.We had sea view and a lovely comfortable balcony.
We stayed on room only basis. There is a pricy (in my opinion...) option for breakfast, and from what I saw, also for lunch. Breakfast was not of the best quality in this hotel, based on other reviews and that is why we did not book it as B&B.
Most guests are middle class Russians, but also some locals.
In our case, we prefered to do our grocceries in one of the numerous supermarkets, and enjoy our own breakfast, having the beautiful sea view from our balcony...
I strongly recommend a car rental.It was very affordable,and in the end, there is nothing like the freedom of your own vehicle, while fuel is dead cheap! It also saved us from the trouble of huggleing for the taxi fair. By the way, taxi charge a minimum of 10 Dirhams (2Euros), as flag charge.The hotel offers free parking.
The only discomfort we experienced at the Golden Beach Motel,was that we could not have a room right away, because we arrived too early...Indeed, we were there at 08.50 in the morning, since our flight had landed 2hrs before that. Our room was still occupied and it also needed to be cleaned. So, it was not the hotel's fault,since they were fully booked.
However,1 hr later we were offered a free upgrade at a large appartment, just for the 1st night, in order to give us some comfort since we were travelling all night with our 4 year old daughter.
The next day, they helped us to move our luggage to our new room that was excactly what we had asked for. So, they did what they could to help us.
Just a couple of pointers for other pottential guests :
The rooms do have kitchen facilities. However, these include a small fridge, a water boiler and a sink. There are no utenclis, like plates, cups and glasses, etc
If you ask, they will provide with them.
The fridge offers a mini bar, that is quite pricy. However, the prices are written in the rrom.
Internet, over wifi, is available but also very pricy at 2Euros/hr, or 8Euros for 5hrs.
However, it can not be used over several days : once you activate it, you need to finish it that day...
On the other hand, we found out that ALL the hotels in the area, charge a lot, for things like meals, wifi, and all the extras that a guest may request...
Other hotels, that are not on the beach, offer such commodities, for free or much cheaper...
As a conclusion, the Golden Beach Motel is perfectly located on a lovely beach, it has a nice pool, and it is inexpencive, if you book on line. Food and Internet service is pricy, but available.
I would go again, and If you don't ask for luxury but just for convinience and efficiency,I would recommend it to all of you.
