As we were looking for a tranquil place to stay in combination with some biking day trips in the Atlas, Al Mendili popped up again in our minds as being the perfect place for R&R. It’s about 25 mins from the city centre and about around an hour drive to Imlil.
We have stayed here 2 times before (last time about 4 years ago), so we had a high expectations from our superb experience last times. Great to see they were are all fulfilled again.
The suite we had on the first floor is spacious, very clean and well decorated, with a large private terrace overlooking the pool with uninterrupted views of the Atlas mountains. I believe the property is about 2 hectares, so more than enough space for all. They have comfortable day beds around the pool. There is also a jacuzzi & spa, but didn’t make use of it.
All the meals are freshly prepared and delicious – our compliments to the chef again. They can be taken any where you chose. The meals are pre-set, so no menu although I assume there is some flexibility (we didn’t need it). We chose to have breakfast on our terrace each morning (you can phone them to prepare it whenever you are ready in the morning), which is a excellent way to start your day. For dinner we went for the roof terrace most of the times, which has great uninterrupted views on the surroundings.
Great to see that the team from a couple of years ago was still working there and more important, were still delivering great, personalized service with a big smile.
Thanks again to Alain & Catherine (the owners) and their team for the ultimately relaxed week we again had at Al Mendili!
