Was visiting Oualidia with my husband for the first time. He has a lot of really good friends here & one of them decided to take us out of the evening. It was cool but the atmosphere was warm and friendly. The food was wonderful,...More

Had the 2 set meals for 120 and 160 dirham and were not disappointed - fresh & tasty salad, delicious fish, and a great warm chocolate cake for dessert. The candles provided a nice atmosphere for our dinner, and the service was attentive. We first...More

We went there because it is ranked no 1 in Oualida and got quite disappointed - really boring/tasteless food and other guests were allowed to smoke inside:( The staff were however very kind.

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and enjoyed it a lot. The rooms were cosy and clean and more quiet than in many other houses we stayed. The food in the restaurant was really good and the prices fair. The staff was very...More

Freshly cooked seafood. Staff were lovely. The cats are a bit of a pain, but in Morocco that is a recurring theme. Ask for the tea / coffee without sugar - it's far too sweet otherwise. Mussels were fresh, fish tagine was a good portion...More
