Highs & Lows

  • Locale is fantastic for both city life and perfect seclusion.

  • The dedication to the arts is a real draw.

  • It is a beautiful hotel, guaranteeing serenity.

  • The little extras, such as the goodie-bag or the tray of dried fruit, were a real bonus.

  • The staff are a little laid back; unless you are too, it could get a little frustrating.

  • I found the menu a little bland. Breakfast was traditional, but I expected more of a Moroccan influence at dinner.
