Unfortunately we were very disappointed with the Hotel. The room (107) was very noisy with noise coming from the dining room activities, the dining room heating/air conditioning machinery outside our patio, and some kind of running machinery in the basement below the room running from 0500hrs some mornings.
The buffet food choice was very limited, and the food items were never hot. We did not have a hot meal in our 7 day stay - the food items were Luke warm at best. The supposed omelette bar at breakfast was difficult to use, generally no staff present. When staff did attend the cooking area, the equipment and required ingredients were not prepared or unavailable.
A Christmas Eve gala dinner was offered with drinks in the bar from 1930hrs and seating at 2000hrs. Once again, unfortunately, the room and dinner were still being set up at 2030hrs with no indication of actually opening so we gave that up and dined in the main dining room (luke warm food again).
Potential visitors should be aware this hotel (possibly all Morocco hotels) do not comply with typical no smoking policies. There were ash trays on all the reception area tables and people were smoking throughout the area. We were unable to use the main lobby bar as people were smoking at the bar and in the surrounding seating area.
Staff were generally uncooperative, although nice words were always available requests were not carried out.
The only positive comments I can make are around the cleaning and porter staff. The room was kept perfectly clean and the porter staff assisted with luggage, etc., as required. The swimming pool, sun beds, and swimming pool bar area were also very acceptable and well maintained.
Don’t know how this hotel achieved a 5 star rating. I would rate it as no better the 3 star. Easily the worst hotel we have stayed in on this type of golf holiday. A real shame, the golf courses, golf transfers and weather were great, but the whole package badly let down by this hotel.
