I spent two weeks with my Mum staying at the Palais des Remparts. My Mum said it was the best holiday of her adult life! My Mum has some mobility issues so the lift at the Palais was invaluable to us and actually was one of the reasons we chose to stay here. The staff were absolutely charming - no... More

We were so disappointed with this Riad we left immediately and took the hit on the booking cost. Our room was grubby, the whole place is tatty and dated and we couldn't wait to leave. The receptionist was very unhelpful and extremely hostile, very glad we left.

This was a lovely riad! Clean, friendly, and beautiful, and the location is terrific. Staff is very welcoming. My husband and I felt right at home. An excellent roof deck to hang out, relax, and watch the sunset. Breakfast was nothing to write home about, but is good enough!

Beautiful accommodation, on a reasonably quiet street, great location, short stroll to the fishing port and beach, and the main streets of the medina. Staff were very friendly and helpful, made for a very pleasant stay.

Amazing Friendly staff, delicious food and service (top notch), but the rooms were feeling a bit worn and I needed assistance with the window in my room as it continually slammed open and shut. Installing screens would allow the fresh sea air w/out this problem. also, felt like I was the only guest in the place (maybe this was just... More

The best things about this Riad are the staff, very helpful and friendly, and the view, near the sea and the remparts. Besides that, it feels like the Riad has lost its glory days. It's old and not very tasteful. The breakfast was poor and we found a cockroach in our bathroom. Gladly, we stayed just one night.
