    Great location, breakfast and nice property

    The room was nice. Clean. Great breakfast buffet and location as on the beach as right beside the medina. Only thing I did not like was the rooms were hot even if cool outside. If no air conditioning in the room it would be a good idea to have windows or doors with screens to allow cool air to circulate in the rooms and still allowing your guests to feels secure with sleeping with the windows or doors open or invest in air conditioning units in the rooms. It was difficult to sleep comfortably at night as the rooms were too hot and not in a millions years would I be crazy enough to sleep in a room in a hotel while leaving the doors wide open.

    hôtel très vieux, à rénover absolument. Nous avons changé de chambre car les prises étaient sorties du mur. La deuxième chambre pas d'eau chaude, le flexible de douche laissé passer l'eau, on nous l'a changé, le robinet d'eau chaude du lavabo ne coulait pas (pas d'eau) le plombier est venu changer le système complet du lavabo. La fenêtre de chambre ne fermait pas car cassée, pas de lampe au dessus de la table de la chambre. Télévision limitée, car une seule chaine française sur les 7 disponibles. Certains personnels désagréables. Incident avec un barman, qui n'a rien compris à la commande. S'étant trompé il nous dit de garder les boissons servies par erreur et qu'il nous apporte celle qui fallait ; il nous demandait 10 dirhams de plus pour avoir cette boisson. Nous avons fait une réclamation écrite à l’hôtel et le responsable de l’hôtel a remis les choses en place avec le barman. Il y avait de la peinture argentée sur les meubles des chambre, on s'en mettait plein les mains, la baignoire était en mauvais état, des rustines grossières ont été faites dans cette baignoire. Très cher pour cet hôtel qui est dans un état miteux. Je regrette ce voyage. Je n'aurais pas payé d'avance, je serais partie dès le lendemain.

    La realidad nada tiene q ver con las fotografías

    Las fotografías de presentación nada tienen q ver con la realidad. Hotel en obras. Hotel q tuvo su época de esplendor en los años 50, ahora decadente.

    À éviter

    Pas de piscine (gros travaux) Ça a dû être un bel hôtel. Énormes travaux à prévoir. Demi-pension cantine bas de gamme. Une soupe, une cuisse de poulet bouilli, une salade de fruits en boîte. Aucun choix. C'est ça ou rien. PERSONNEL TRÈS SYMPA

    El hotel es muy antiguo y necesita algunas reformas, la ubicación muy buena, enfrente de la playa y los desayunos muy completos. Se podría mejorar si lo reformaran un poco. Alberto
