Don't bother with this hotel: I spent 3 nights there this week, and will never go back. The service was poor, not once in my stay did housekeeping enter my room to replace towels, empty the trash, replace toiletries or even make my bed. The hotel staff was not usually available; the several times I went to the front desk...

The staff are very friendly, but don't expect too much help. We stayed there and had to change rooms three times. In the first room, the shower flooded the entire bathroom. Although there was a hairdryer in this room, there was no balcony or separate seating area as described. We changed to a room with a balcony which didn't have...

There are many cheaper hotels in medina. And it makes this hotel not very attractive. Looks like it has no clients for some time when we arrive, so roooms without good ventilation had a specific smell. Wide rooms, short distance to the beach are advantages of this hotel.

This hotel represents great value for money and i must comment on how helpful and friendly the staff were. The location of the hotel is 5 mins walk from the beach and about 25 mins from the medina (taxis are readily available from outside the hotel). Decent breakfast and rooms are cleaned daily. No complaints about this hotel and great...

“It is a fewminuteswalk to the medina which I personallyliked. I tok ashort cut to the beach then walked along the beach to the medina daily and loved the fresh air and exercise. No poolneeded as the beach is closev by with camel n horse rideing as well as kite surfing. py only 7Dh for taxi to city center if you prefer and the Classical Music Festival was free and heavenly end of April.”

“The suite (rm 9) was lovely - and although it faced the road, the traffic didn't keep us awake. It may be worth asking for a room on that floor.”
