This Riad was obviously lovingly put together by its owners. The decor is ornate, in a luxurious-Morrocan style. The owners are gracious, attentive and very proud of their Riad. Problem is that the Riad needs serious refurbishment. The cushions and slipcovers on sofas, chairs and lounge chairs by the pool are soiled and the air-conditioning equipment in my room was... More

The staff went out of their way to make the Riad feel like home. Beautiful place. We had two dinners on the terrace overlooking the medina and both were excellent. Great rooms, great service, would highly recommend.

It took us a while to get to the Riad, only to realise that they were overbooked. They said they'd put us up in a "riad arabesque 2", but instead took us to a large hotel around the corner. The hotel was probably quite expensive, but it was not what we had paid for. Disliked the attitude of the staff.

We really enjoyed our week long stay at the Arabesque. It was my wife's birthday and as it was a big one we were upgraded to a lovely room by the small pool on the ground floor. The rooms were sumptuous, ornate and very Moroccan. It was beautifully cleaned and we saw the cleaners ironing the sheets on to the... More

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
