A massive family orientated resort style property that attracts an international selection of clients, especially visitors from France and Germany.
The pool and spacious grounds are especially attractive and there is ample communal space within the main building. The spa is a popular venue and the indoor pool is an added advantage in the colder months and during the evenings. Many guests remain on site during the day and there are some organised activities.
Suits those who prefer a family orientated and well spread out, all-inclusive establishment, away from the old city area.
A fortress like entrance, with numerous flagpoles, blends well with the local area and creates a mysterious but upmarket feel for new arrivals.
The modern accommodation wings comprise many low-rise buildings, spread out towards and beyond the pool areas. Wide balconies and terraces overlook the arid gardens.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: All rooms

The spacious and pristine looking lobby, with its chandeliers, is a popular meeting area and offers plenty of comfortable seating, although the areas around the door may become congested when large groups are arriving or departing. With a long reception desk running down one side of the lobby with a wide corridor leading through to the grounds and dining/bar areas.
The main restaurant is rather functional in appearance but serves its purpose with a large buffet area and plenty of space for manoeuvre. A smarter, upmarket restaurant has cream decor, traditional wooden screens, arches, and a grand central chandelier.
The bar area has a pub like approach with dark woods, low tables and red lamp fittings.
The peaceful grounds are located away from the main road and its constant traffic rumble. The flat and welcoming pool area is particularly spacious and tastefully landscaped with maturing trees, numerous shrubs and a good supply of sun-loungers and parasols.
A pool bar has a shaded area and offers a service of snacks and light meals. There is a daytime entertainment programme for children and adults and a hobby club is open six days a week.
Activities are arranged for children in two age groups and tennis courts are available.
Area Type: On the main road that leads out, past the Palmeraie region towards Fez. There is very little in the immediate vicinity of interest to tourist, although there is a courtesy bus and taxi service to the Medina, 7km to the W and horse and camel riding is possible in the Palmeraie, from 1.5km to the NW. Buses also frequently pass along the main road.
