This hotel is absolutely stunning. It is filled with a magical Moroccan ambiance to the slightest detail. The hotel is located in the core of the Medina of Fes making it easy to access the streets of the Medina that are rich in Moroccan culture. The cuisine of the hotel is simply delicious. The rooms are so cosy and beautifully... More

We spent only one night at this Riad- NYE and it was incredible! First, there are many lovely riads for $50-75 that you can visit. But paying the extra $25-50 really makes a difference in the quality of your room. The intricate wood carvings everywhere, the hotel pool, the incredible price fixe NYE dinner with belly dancers, fire eaters, berber... More

This Riad was undoubtedly the highlight of our Jules Verne "Morocco Revisited" tour - worth the visit to Morocco in its own right. The entrance from the street made us wonder what was in store - but once inside the word "wonder" summed it up! Truly beautiful in almost every respect. Our room - by the pool - was really... More

I visited Riad Arabesque with a travel group that had rented all the rooms for three nights. On our arrival we all had a great time comparing rooms with one another. Each room is unique and spacious. Breakfast on the porch overlooking the city was excellent. Dinner was true Moroccan and it's quality can be attested to by the fact... More

As a frequent traveler I have stayed in many places from minus 5 star to 6 star, slept under the stars in The Sahara but Riad Arabesque was a complete surprise. The exterior is typical of the Moroccan way, unobtrusive and hides the internal jewels so well inside. The greeting at the door upon arrival is honest, and welcoming and... More

I rented the entire arid for three nights. We were 26 in the group and we had 15 rooms. There was only 1 room that was not as great as the others. All in all, my group had a wonderful stay. The tag could not have been more gracious. The food we have at dinner was stellar. The breakfast was... More

I can't remember the name of our rooms, but we we were 2 friends travelling together and each had a junior suite. We loved our 3 night stay earlier in April. It was quiet and our rooms were lovely. The staff were terrific and we liked the location. We did not try the fitness centre or spa (if there was... More
