“Through the blue studded door, a carved sandstone arch and an enormous date palm dominate the central courtyard of this cool and tranquil boutique hotel. This is a classic Moroccan riad where you can soak up the flavours and scents of the East, offering good and efficient hospitality right on the edge of the town’s ramparts. Just a few minute’s walk and you can be at the beach, the port or your favourite shopping street or cafe.
Three floors comprise 24 rooms, all facing onto balconies over the atrium; eleven standard and the rest, luxury rooms and suites. Standard rooms are compact but well designed with bright furnishings, integrated shower area and a separate loo; luxury rooms and suites have separate bathrooms and underfloor heating.
Breakfast on the roof terrace with superb views of the beach and port. There is a small spa, a yoga room, a bar and an impressive vaulted dining room decorated in warm, well-lit tones, serving traditional Moroccan and classic international dishes to the sounds of cool jazz.”
