Away from the madding crowds of the cities, yet we found it close enough to do all the sightseeing we wanted on day and overnight excursions, then back to our palace! Rabat and Casablanca (airport: CMN ) are around 30-45 minutes away, Marrakech and Fes we overnighted. Great pool area. A couple of restaurants, bars and a hip late-night club. Nice Spa too. Go to Rick's Cafe in Casablanca one evening. Clever re-creation from the movie. Good service and prices and there is a Madame Rick these days!
