Nice riad tucked away in the small Azemmour medina. Friendly staff. Very quiet place -- it is pretty empty during the day -- but a nice getaway. A great rooftop terrace and a good breakfast. Dinner in the hotel is tasty and not a bad deal at 150/dirhams per person (salad, tajine, and dessert, there's wine available too for extra). Rachida who runs the place is very friendly and helpful. The center courtyard is quite cold and you'll want to layer the blankets if its in winter, but in summer it is probably very relaxing. About a thirty minute walk to the beach. The center courtyard gets quite cold, and the rooms are a little chilly in winter. But there are plenty of blankets and a room heater works reasonably well. Not a lot going on in Azemmour either, but it is friendly, off the beaten tourist path, and easy to reach from Casa or El Jadida.
Hotel staff was keen to help at any time.
The location, sea view
It had a lovely large swimming pool and the food in the resterant was good value for money
the room was so small.
Nice Ibis hotel ! The breakfast was better than what you usually get at an Ibis Hotel. Easy to find and well located.
The breakfast and workers in the hotel
Ibis is located right on the shore, a walk across the street and you are on the beach. Also, it is in the northern half of El-Jadida, which means that you are away from the crowded and smelly medina, and in an area of town that is a bit less densely populated, and seems to be the nicer area of town. The breakfasts are OK, but nothing special; the usual Moroccan fare. Honestly, the location of this hotel is its only real advantage. Other than that, it is worn down, worn out, and overpriced. First of all, the elevator was not working properly. All the buttons had been removed on the floors aside from the lobby, so you just had to wait for it to come on its own. The rooms were small, and old and run down. No frills here whatsoever. I had to take pillows from another room when nobody was looking because the staff would not give me extra pillows. The breakfasts are absolutely nothing special. I was trying to figure out if the orange juice was actually freshly squeezed with water added (as is typical in Morocco), or straight out of a container. Even though I was with a Moroccan friend, I was not informed at check-in time that there is a 25% discount for Moroccan citizens. Oh yes, and the hotel is right next door to an amusement park, which means noise, noise, noise until the wee hours of the morning. There is a lot more to say about this hotel, but I can sum it up in one word: overpriced. For $83 a night (which did not include breakfast), what I got in return was a no-frills, run-down hotel near the beach, that's about it. I personally would recommend the Ibis Budget hotel next door, which is only about $50 per night -- and though definitely no-frills, at least doesn't pretend to be anything more than that. This Ibis pretends to be something it is not.
The location right on the seafront was very good. Staff were helpful and facilities were good.
stuff late in room servis
spacious room buffet breakfast expensive restauration with only 2 restaurants , out of 5, open : serving only buffets !!!
Significantly improved since I last stayed in 2007. Furnishings more modern, brighter. Curtains in the room needed replacing. Room safe did not work.
Excellent views Room service was not quick
Very classy and luxery.
friendly atmosphere and good manners of the staff. dinner and breakfast buffet , not as good as in previous stays ....
The resort itself was very nice and the breakfast was especially noteworthy. The staff were all very friendly and nice (with one exception at the lobby bar). The front manager was exceptionally accommodating and very easy to deal with when we wanted to make a change. There were charges for seemingly everything. While I thought the basic room rate with breakfast was good value for money, the fact that every other little thing was expensive made it quickly add up.
The location of the hotel, well designed and variety of restaurants. The staff needs more training in welcoming guests.
We went as a family adults like children enjoyed the stay, the pools the beach, the people the staff the food, it was all great. none
Brand new hotel very well appointed. Efficient and curteous service throughout 1. The main swimming pool is too shallow. In my opinion, ir should be completely redone; 2. Bottled water is non provided for free in the rooms (except for the first day). This is not acceptable in North Africa, where all travel guides insist you should not drink tap water.
It was a very comfortable stay.
I liked the varieties of food available in the various restaurants, which gave me many choices. I also liked the beach view, the service was excellent. Security was excellent, and I was very pleased to have chosen this hotel. for sure I will choose Mazagan Beach Resort every time I visit Morocco. My plan was to stay three days but unfortunately I had to leave due to business engagements. I would have enjoyed my stay much more if I stayed.
every thing I like.
Location, friendlyness, design
Olivier and Laurence provide the perfect haven - their Riad is clean, calm and cool. The food is delicious and we had a lovely stay with them
very nice hotel , very frendly , deserves the best.
we liked all about this riad, we recommend it to all friends
Excellent location and Rene was very nice. Room was basic.
We stayed at the Riad Soleil d'Orient in El Jadida (on 27 and 28 August, 2009) and have nothing but rave notices to give it. Although open for only a few months, it is run smoothly and graciously. The Host and hostess were charming and very accomodating, even arranging auto transport. It is a beautiful facility, which belies its location down a narrow alley in the Medina. Although we learned that it had just been designed and built and decorated over the past 3 years, it appeared to have been a loving restoration of an historic riad.. We had excellent breakfasts and two well-planned and well-executed dinners. The staff were attentive. We will strongly recommend it to friends and would gladly return if we were in the area
Very comfortable surroundings and lovely furnishings. Food was good but far too much and too rich. Whilst Oliver was very attentive and couldn't do enough for you, his constant fussing to make sure everything was OK became quite irritating - we just wanted to be left alone to relax!. The surroundings of the riad are very poor and it we did not feel relaxed walking around the immediate vicinity. No secure car parking although the details stated parking was available. (your advert also indicated other facilities were available but were not - think this may be a case of not deleting non applicable items rather than anything else but could be misleading). Don't rely on credit cards to pay the bill owing to Moroccon banking issues!
We enjoyed the very attentive attitude of the hotel owner and his team. They were helpful in every way and minded every detail to make our staying as smooth and joyful as possible. Thanks so much for this exceptional experience! Travellers to El Jadida should be aware of the authenticity of the place. It's Morroco in its pure form and little of striking to see (apart of the Riad Soleil D'Orient).
very nice riad, completely new and decorated in authentic way.Very nice terrace on top and nice patio. Breakfast was very good. Our room was very nicely decorated. Owners are very homey and helpful. It is very close to medina and the main street (aprox. 3 min walk) pretty hard to find, but people in El Jadida are very helpfull, so we didn't have much problems - call the owner for instructions. Our room was in the patio and it was not sound protected, so we were woken up by muezzin at 4.30am.
A fantastic place to stay, great location within walking diatance of main sights & it is very quiet with a great garden which is secure for kids (& has turtles). The staff & owners are great. Would recommend this place without hesitation.
The ambiance of being in the old city No sign outside to find the hotel. Amenities outside the room - no info beforehand. No credit card payment possibility.
Great staff and a great location and great rooms no
Nice house however we realised that you can stay with the same money to the best hotel of El JAdida. the area is not very safe
the hotel is more a bed and breakfast. nice rooms, but two of the rooms have neither a window, nor any air condition.. !!!! this is quite disturbing and i would not have wanted to stay more than a night.. the place is located in the middle of the old portugese quarter. hard to find. no sign outside the door. car has to stay outside. a bit adventurous to go there at night
