We have just returned after spending 4 wonderful nights at Rebali and can highly recommend. We were unsure as to spend 3 or 4 nights there - but made the decision to stay the extra night about 30 seconds after arriving.
We were upgraded to the family villa which had a private pool - 4 poster bed etc ... v nice surprise and perfect for relaxing. The roof terrace was also lovely for sun bathing and looking at stars at night. The roof also works by remote control and wheels off the building leaving an open air viewing hole which is AMAZING.
Mohammed and Maryema (sorry about the spelling) were both fantastic hosts - nothing was too much to much for them to help with - Mohammed sorted us surfing lessons/horse riding/teapots from the souks/ taxis to the airport all at a moments notice.
Every day one of the managers comes to your room/villa after breakfast (which is delivered to you every morning between 8-10 - it includes fresh coffee, orange juice, omelettes, pancakes, different jams (the fig one is amazing) Then they ask you if they can help you with any activities for the day. Some days we just said no and sat by the pool all day - others we went surfing/horse riding - taxi to essouairia etc. Essa is about 10 miles away - 25 mins and 100dr in taxi. Easily done for a late afternoon wandering around and then evening dinner. Lovely place - a must see.
Rebali do not do lunch but they can get lunch delivered to your villa from Chez Momo - a little beach shack for about £7. We did this most days - fresh fish of the day was absolutely delish and great for filling post surf belly. Alternatively you can go and visit Chez Momo - Momo is a funny guy and runs a simple little resto - no beers though. You can then have a little wander round the beach and then escape back to Rebali.
For dinner we ate most nights at Rebali where the staff make a 3 course meal for you and bring it to your room. We had our best tagine of the holiday here. very impressive.
This is a real hidden gem - we had the best time and were looked after extremely well - would, and will recommend.
