We stayed in January so the property was empty due to off season. This may have impacted our stay as it was not so busy.
Regarding bag checks/food/drinks - my bag was checked only once. After this, the security recognised me and let me through without a bag check (though still walking through the detectors) with a smile. They were very lovely and let my water bottle through even after they checked my bag. There is, however, a sign that says no outside food and drinks to be brought in the property. I assume this is because there is a supermarket right next door and they encourage you to spend your money within grounds.
Location - right next to Menara Mall (not that great, to be honest. But has enough cheaper eats for when you can't be bothered to walk far). Carrefour market next door great for snacks or anything you've forgotten. 20-30 minute walk to Gueliz and the Medina. Wide pavements. Felt safe walking as long as you watch out for crossings. Police everywhere if there's any issues.
Check in/check out - probably the longest check in process I've ever done. Not enough people at the reception so queue builds up. Check out is faster if there's no queue.
Breakfast - same every day (as with most hotels). Food is good. A lot to choose from. Staff very attentive. Make sure to ask for the tea!
Staff/service - very good. Can't really complain. We got everything we asked for. Room service was prompt but the menu isn't very extensive.
