Arrived after long day traveling - ferry, train & grands taxi, had a lovely swim and lazy meal.
Friendly people. Clean. Spacious.
Lovely dinner. Breakfast.
Far out of town so ideal of you have your own transport. Taxi expensive and public transport to here atrocious. Bus stop in nearby village Ain Chaggag. Bus late, cramped and had to walk from bus stop.

It harkens back to a day when everyone had a key role to play in the small ecosystem of a town or ...
... do together to relax or before a special occasion, such as a wedding. It is basically like a spa treatment where the therapist completely exfoliates us with an olive oil and black soap exfoliant, then covered us from our hair to our toes with a clay mask. It finished with them showering us & washing and brushing our hair. There can not possibly be a single piece of dead skin left in my body! For both of us it was definitely a very unusual experience but we both really enjoyed ...
... our stay and soon came to know the 'convenience store' owners who provided our bottled water and Robert's cold 'Coca Lite'. We did get lost twice that week, but we also managed to buy groceries, flip flops, and a headscarf using a combination of French and Moroccan Arabic. I decided early that I wasn't going to haggle in the old market; prices were cheap and I was happy to pay the supposed 70%25 markup to help these families out. ...
