A great hotel in a great ocean front location. Large well appointed guest rooms, mine had two walls of windows that gave great cross ventilation. Just minutes away from the Medina and ocean from restaurants.

We booked this hotel last-minute after our other accommodations proved to be insufficient. They gave us the lower internet rate that we would have paid through a discount booking site, and the service was great. Don't pay attention to other reviews that rate this hotel poorly on cleanliness. Morocco has different standards and styles of accommodation. By the time we...

We really enjoyed our stay here. Yes, the hotel is a bit dated, but that is more than compensated for by the great location across from the best part of the beachfront, and a short walk to the medina. The room was spacious and comfortable, with a lovely balcony overlooking the beautiful big pool, and the the beds were among...

Le Medina is in a great location right by the beach & although construction was on going while we were there so access to the road was difficult. That being said you could see it will look stunning when finished. The reason I have only given 3 stars was due to the very poor sound proofing between rooms. Unfortunately we...

Had a fantastic stay at this hotel with my family last week. We all had rooms on the first floor, which overlooked the outdoor swimming pool area.

Unfortunately the plane we were leaving on could not take off, so about 200 people needed a room for the night. We arrive with about 60 others at Le Medina. We were met with mint tea and flannels.
