“An impeccably manicured small hotel at the heart of Morocco’s funkiest coastal town - stunning roof-terrace views”
Dark wood, sober colours and elegant cane furniture are all common to the immaculate, colonial-themed rooms. Sepia photographs, globes and vintage books tied with string add character, as do a stylish set of golf clubs in one room!
If you can stretch to it, book a Suite Unik Prestige - ours had a beach-view bathtub and another has a stunning private roof terrace! Suite Unik rooms are spacious and light; Unik Prestige rooms are bit darker as they open onto the inner gallery - that said high riad ceilings mean they feel airy enough and all rooms have air-conditioning. There are a handful of rooms suitable for families, too.
The bathrooms we saw were lovely, with bronze, ceramic or hardwood basins and bowls of spices in which shampoos and body lotions nestle; towels and bathrobes are suitably fluffy.
Breakfast is served by lovely, smiley staff on the sunny roof terrace (or in the dining room or inner courtyard); working our way through fresh orange juice, croissants, yoghurt and plates of honey, jam and fig preserves was a lovely start to the day. The coffee is strong, Italian and very good, or there’s proper mint tea.
As far as eating out was concerned, we were pointed in the direction of Elizir for Moroccan-Mediterranean food amid quirky interiors and Chez Sam for the best fresh seafood in town, there's also Caravane Café if you fancy authentic local dishes with a side of live music. If nothing else, an impromptu lunch at one of the fish stalls on the harbourside is a must, as long as you choose your stall with care; a few coins will buy you a plate of seafood delivered by the boats that day, simply barbecued and eaten at communal tables.
