Whilst I agree with many of the recent reviews I would like to add own thoughts about the hotel. Yes the reception area can be a bit impersonal but one always got a smile and help from the security staff. The rooms are tired, but clean and the bathroom plugs do not fit well, but their design to match the...

I liked this hotel. They were very accommodating to a kitten I found and would let her sleep in my room. The hotel is close to the medina and the beach. The biggest let down has been that when I have tried to contact the hotel to find out how the kitten is, they have not responded to my emails

I stayed here just before Christmas 2016. The hotel was nice and welcoming. The beds were very comfortable. The hotel was cheap but I felt once you got there everything else was extortionately priced. The equivalent of £5 for a small coffee and £10 for a cocktail. Breakfast is not included and is £15 extra a day. I didn't use...

My friend is a member of Accor group so he reserved this hotel for me. The location is perfect: close to the medina, and just opposite the beach. The lobby and the dining room are decorated with many pieces of arts. But when I arrived at my room by the pool, I found many mosquitos inside my room and it...

This hotel is rated a five star, but by European standards is only a four. It is in a great location, it being just across the road from the beach where it has its own private area and only a short walk to the Medina.
