We have just arrived back from our fabulous weekend at Riad First. I organised this trip as a hen weekend for my best friend and it was all I thought it would be and more. Fatima and her sons were amazing we were welcomed and treated like family and anything we needed was done for us. As a group of... More

We can only thank Fatima and her son for their kindness during our stay in her beautiful Riad. It was perfectly minimal. Our room and the Riad were both beautifully decorated. They provided calm and tranquility to the busy world just outside the main door. Fatima's 'magic map' helped us find our way around the local streets in and out... More

We stayed 4 nights in this beautiful riad. Cosy and modern rooms, nice areas to relax from a busy day in the medina and the plunge pool, will make your stay really comfortable. Don't forget to ask Fatima to make an amazing dinner, delicious! Also an airport pick-up is recommended to easily get to this riad on arrival day. You... More

Our stay at Riad First was very relaxing and enjoyable and ticked so many boxes. To run you through our stay; We arranged an airport transfer with the riad as we were worried we would not find it otherwise. There was no way on the first day we would have found it, so we were glad we arranged it and... More

Riad First ticks so many boxes I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. It is close to Jmaa el Fna (10 mins walk) - not too difficult to find once you've located the turn off from Bab Doukkala which is one of the main souk roads and featured on all city maps (handy fountain and road sign as a pointer) -...

We stayed in this riad for three nights, it was wonderful to feel we had a quiet place to relax after a busy day in the medina. Fatima and the staff were friendly and very helpful. The rooms are very spacious and beautifully designed. It is a small paradise in the middle of the medina!

Impossible to find without relying on the numerous touts but an oasis of calm from the noise and bustle of outside. Comfortable rooms but we found the shower difficult to use comfortablyand the toilet and shower being in the same room , albeit a L shaped room wasn't ideal.The rooftop didn't have great views but a good place to sit...
