Hotel and staff were great, had few problems with hot water in the rooms, but that didn't spoil the stay as the spa area had the hot water. the breakfast wasn't great as they did not have any cereals or toast or fruits. it was hard for them to understand what english tea was.
Overall we had a great time at the hotel even though english speaking was a bit of a barrier.

I treated myself to three nights here to recover from the hassels of two weeks traveling around Morocco and I'm not sure I could have found better. It's a 30 minute drive from Marrakesh with the last 5k along a dirt track and I was collected from the station in a 4x4. Transfer is 30 euros each way, reasonable given the distance and drive, but worth factoring into your costs. I had a junior suite with private terrace which was more than spacious; I've seen flats smaller than the bathroom. It's a real oasis in the middle of the desert with beutiful green grounds and gardens and a pool. The food was absolutely excellent and reasonably priced, I think much of it came from the orgnaic farm. Service was also excellent. I didn't ride as it was far to hot, but they were happy to have me wander around the farm and very keen to show off the new arrival; a three week old foal. When the hardest part of your day is fighting the of sparrows that live on the terrace for your breakfast and avoiding the swallows taking bugs from the pool as you swim you know your onto a good thing.
Only small gripes were the shower tended to flood the bathroom if you were in there for any length of time and the dining room might be ready for a refit soon. The manager may also want to consider some headphones for his kids to use with their computers in the dining room when they're staying.
I plan to return and would definately recommend this as a great place to stay.
