So after a while I decided to come back to this place for an overnight staycation with friends. Rooms were renovated to a much modern style. Furnitures seemed to be new as well.

This place is awesome for a weekend getaway from the busy city. The rooms are big and clean. We stayed on a weekday where there's very few guests so the surrounding is very quiet and peaceful that you could loudly hear the birds chirping outside. The balcony overlooking the pool and beach is so cozy you would want to live...

The resort is located by the lagoon and is nice and breezy. The staff are quite welcoming and friendly. They have a nice pool and quite a few bbq pits. We stayed in the chalet a few times and at the apartments as well.

The resort needs updating, the restaurant as well. Location is nice on the beach, but quality is not on the same level as the prices. The seafood platter for 200 dirham is much. They serve a nice glass of wine though, just as nice as in the wine shop.
