Feedback and reviews
We would particularly recommend Les Jardins de la Medina our room was superb having a roof terrace to ourselves plus a balcony area, it was a real oasis and the staff were all of the highest quality. C.M. in September 2008
My daughter and I absolutely loved this hotel - I run a bed and breakfast myself so I can be quite fussy, but the room, service, food, setting, pool and garden were wonderful - an excellent experience. R.E. in July 2008
