”Absolute highlight of our two weeks in Morocco. Where to start? The staff, room, location, food, other facilities — everything here is amazing. Okay, so the staff. Led by an all-female triumvirate, they are all-round fabulous, friendly and efficient. We were travelling with a baby, which can be challenging, but everyone was extremely helpful (not to say in love with the baby, which was by the way reciprocal).
Our room was spacious and comfortable, with a great bed, a beautiful bathroom and enough space for the baby to crawl around safely. When we arrived there were flesh flowers in our room along with a bowl of fruit and delicious Moroccan pastry.
Convenient location just outside the hectic center of town. It's easy to ride into town (park for free in any street just past the Bab Agnaou gate and walk from there to the Saadian tombs, El Badi Palace, El Bahia, and into the endless souks). But it's just as nice to spend a day at the hotel, where there's plenty of quiet and nicely decorated reading rooms, an actual library (!), and a nice garden, swimming pool and hammam.
And then the food! Sumptuous breakfast with bread, crepes, fresh fruit, yoghurt, and good coffee. Al Fassia is famous for its Moroccan cuisine (there are two restaurants in town and one adjacent to the hotel) and we've eaten there every night: great service, very friendly waitresses (again all-female staff here) and fantastic food which comes in generous portions. The roasted lamb shoulder could serve four but was so delicious we finished it anyway. The fish tajine and the tajine with lamb and aubergine are also great.
This was the best hotel of our 2-week roundtrip in southern Morocco; in fact, it's easily the best out of all 40+ hotels I've booked through booking.com over the past few years. So glad we stayed here at the start and end of our trip. Couldn't recommend any higher.”
