The hotel is located down a long bumpy track and really is in the middle of nowhere which is perfect for a few days break. The people who work there all make you feel welcome and are very friendly. The rooms seem from another time - this isn't a slur- it's actually a really nice aspect. The lighting is dim and the rooms are decorated in a traditional Moroccan style. The bathroom was really modern. On the terrace there's a lovely pool to sit beside, relax and read (or obviously to swim in) but the views are spectacular. On the way in there are pomegranate trees and other fruit trees and you pass locals on donkeys and going about their daily lives. Breakfast was great.
Now for the bad stuff- We were trying to arrange to be dropped off in town in order to get a bus in a few days time. The man who worked there who was going to take us told us it would be 300dirham (about £27) - for a 20min drive. Problem is, once you're there, you're there, and you don't really have an alternative. Thankfully we changed our mind as we had a tour the next day and we decided to stay at another hotel in town on return from our trip.
Then it came to check out. I had my printout from booking.com with the price on it so I got my money ready with a bit extra for taxes. At checkout they tried to tell me that the price I had was only for one person- not the two of us. On my receipt it showed the TOTAL room price as £23. This discussion went on for a long time but I didn't pay the almost double they were asking for. I don't know why they assumed that I would possibly have booked the room for only 1 person when 2 of us were travelling together- the receipt confirmed all I needed it to. This conversation was very difficult due to a massive language barrier.
Anyway- this did put a negative twist on our stay, which is a shame.
