"Excellent. Newly built with imagination. The facilities, service, food and rooms are very good indeed. By some margin the best hotel we stayed at. I'd really recommend this one."
"The Xaluca Maadid as the Highlight of the holiday for us and I can honestly say that it is great, the people were so friendly, the hotel is terrific and being in a traditional style makes it so much more interesting than a standard hotel. I can honestly recommend this hotel to anyone that wants something a little different."
