“Ideally situated in a laid back beach town”
Reviewed 27 August 2010

You won't find much information in English about the Moroccan beach town of Asilah. You might be led to believe that it's got only a handful of hotels and places to eat, when the opposite is true: like most beach towns, it's crawling with hotels of all sizes, and the beachfront and other main streets are lined with cafes, some specializing in fish dishes (you are on the Atlantic) and some with more typical Moroccan food.

The Hotel Zelis seems to host a lot of tour groups, so we were lucky to walk in off the street -- the booking services indicated that everything in Asilah was full (but many hotels cannot be booked through Expedia/Hotels/Booking.com). They had one room that could accommodate our party of four, with one child sharing a bed with us, another son on the sofa (not bed, just sofa). Unlike some other hotels we'd encountered, they weren't too picky about requiring each person to have an actual bed, and sofa son was cool with it, especially after I requisitioned sheets for him.

There's a pool which is nicer than the Atlantic (cleaner, warmer) but it is small and was patronized almost exclusively by tots during our visit. The hotel also includes a restaurant and a bar, and breakfast (unless you ask, you'll get Tang instead of the fresh squeezed oj served everywhere else) came with the room. The wifi/Internet situation was not so good, but we found a place right across the street. Worked fine for checking email.

It's clean. The price is right. If "beach hotel" conjures up an image for you (bearing in mind that the nice beach is down the road -- but they'll get a taxi to take you there), then you won't be surprised on disappointed by the Zelis.
