We rarely splurge on an expensive room like this while traveling because we are often disappointed and we like to stretch our money, but I was recovering from a nasty virus and needed some luxury down time. I am so glad we booked at Alya. We took the Meknes suite, which is extraordinary with views to the interior garden and... More

As well as this hotel being the best ever the key to this is Hassan, he goes way beyond the of helping you he does everything for you, from organising your tours dinners, massages and everything else. The service is the best I have experienced and I have been to a lot of hotels around the world. The raid itself... More

We were quite impressed with the spacious rooms, some included hot-tubs,with large comfortable beds and nice views out the windows. The decor throughout was lovely, typical Moroccan without being overdone. The gracious hospitality of Mr Hassan Cohen and the exceptional roof-top meals made our stay there memorable. We'll definitely stay there again next time we're in Fes. This is a... More

We flew in from Oakville Canada and spent two fantastic unforgettable weeks in Morocco while staying at Ryad Alya. The palace is fit for royalty, we had a gorgeous spacious suite, decadent dinners made to perfection and romantic terrace views. The staff were exquisitely attentive and very helpful and friendly. Breakfast in bed came complete with roses fruits and sweets.... More

We had a wonderful stay at Ryad Alya! The building is beautiful and both rooms we stayed in were lovely. Breakfast was on the patio or on the roof depending on the weather and both were spectacular. Hassan and all of the staff were kind and accommodating. I only wish I could have stayed longer.

My husband and I were in Morocco for 5 weeks and this was one of the nicest ryads we stayed in. This is a beautifully restored building with elegant Morrocan furniture and a lovely terrace. The room we stayed in was cute and well appointed. Breakfasts were great. The staff were incredible, especially our wonderful waiter. They were so accommodating,... More

I was travelling with my sister and we stayed in this BEAUTIFUL riad for only 3 nights. Besides of all the warnings of how difficult is to find your place inside the Medina, this Riad was easy to find. This Riad is wonderfully decorated, and the images of the place available here are as reliable as the place itself. Hassan... More

5 star ryad- best ryad in fes and possibly morrocco. Hassan and the team are so lovely and pleasant and would always come back to ryad alya. Breakfast was good and stayed in the casablance suite which is truly amazing. The ryad has wonderful architecture.

The Ryad is excellent! We stayed in the Casablanca suite as well as in the Fes suite and had the best sleep ever! The spa is awesome and all the staff extremely kind. They got us bus tickets to go to Merzouga that we paid at the hotel so that we had nothing to worry about! And their food was... More
