We were recommended to stay at Riad Alkantara by our hosts at our previous stop. We were met at the outside wall of the Medina by a porter who swiftly took off with our bags and deposited them in our room before we had barely arrived. The Riad consisted of five separate houses around an extensive garden and pool. Four... More

We stayed in the Alkantara 11th-15th May . The Riad is beautiful, well positioned in a quiet part of the Medina but within easy walking distance of most of the attractions and good restaurants. Our room was fantastic, clean and peaceful. The pool was amazing and most of the time it was only us using it. The staff were friendly... More

I want to have my wedding here one day! That should probably say enough about how beautiful I think Riad Alkantara is! We literally felt like we were sleeping in a museum or a palace that could be a major tourist attraction, except we had it all to ourselves! The attention to detail in restoring this 17th century riad that... More

We stayed in this riad on Dec 27th - 30th 2014. Our room was great. Very spacious with a fantastic tall ceiling, nice comfortable bathroom. Breakfast was good and the the ladies catering us were very polite and helpful. The first night we had dinner at the riad's restaurant. Complete rip-off. They charge 300Dirhams per person for a poor set... More

I was compelled to write a review of our stay here in March 2013 after reading a few recent reviews. We too were the only couple in the entire Riad during our stay, and while the room and property were stunning, the service and attention to guest details was very poor. Despite the information in the room stating available restaurant... More

We were the only people staying in the Riad couple of weeks ago. Its a beautiful place, huge room, very clean, lovely gardens, great views from the roof terrace. We were welcome by a taxi driver we booked via Riad to be told in very angry way that he was waiting for over an hour and nobody told him what... More

This Riad in the Fes medina is one of the most attractive properties I have ever laid eyes on. The riad is comprised of two very old buildings with two more even older buildings being added (one from the 14the century). All four surround an absolutely beautiful pool area with olive trees and grass to create a unique serene area... More

We stayed in this marvellous riad for three nights. Firstly the accommodation was first class, immaculately clean, beautiful with excellent air conditioning, a must for July in Fez! The gardens were verdant and full of surprises; a chess board,orange peach and lime trees, water features, an amazingly refreshing pool and during the evenings the smell of jasmine was overwhelming.

I had to write a review for this place as it is so rare you stay somewhere that truly gets under your skin. Quiet and secluded behind a large wooden door in the heart of the Medina, Riad Alkantara brings your senses alive with the smell of jasmine, sound of birds and sight of beautiful Moroccan architecture. The staff are... More
