Weirdest lunch stop ever
Seems that the place spectacularly missed whatever tourism surge had been predicted, as one half of the place was "wind whistling through the hallways" unfinished, and already falling down. We went into a side building and worked out lunch with the desk manager. The hotel kitchen isn't operating, so they somehow sent out for the mezze we ordered, using the photos of previous meals saved on our phones. 35 minutes later we ate baba ganoush, falafel, vegetable tagen and vermicelli flecked rice in a large empty dining room. Here's the view from inside of a ghostly Moroccan style resort around an unused pool. It was an odd experience.
