We had drinks on the roof terrace and watched the sunset over the harbour, then went downstairs for our 3 course set menu. The appetiser was stunning, orange, olive oil, olive and garlic... More

Villa Maroc is on the beach, and within the medina. Good location, for those who require being in the center..The town is very small, so any hotel is fairly close to tne beach.

This is a lovely place to have dinner, but when we were there we were the only people around, I don't think there were any people even staying in the hotel. We had to pre-order our main course which was fine. The dinner was delicious really good freshly made food. We were in a delightful courtyard with very pretty decoration.
