One of, if not the most beautiful place that we stayed in in Morocco. Natty was very helpful and the breakfast was good while the room was exceptional The balcony is nice also while the Riad is very near the city centre

Paco is a great host and all the staff is nice and kind. The location is great, just 1 min from the heart of the Medina and 10 min walk from the beach. I found the room very neat and elegant, the absence of closet was not a problem for me. Bathroom was a little bit small but it's a... More

All in all a great place to stay. Very cheap, excellent service, central location and nice atmosphere. We enjoyed two nights in this Riad, and as a family of three, with a 1,5 year old boy, we couldn't be more happy.

Naddie goes out of her way to answer all questions and give information. DarEl Paco is easy to find from the Supratours bus station, a 10 minute walk, is clean, in a great location ( with the exception of being very close to the loud speaker for the call to prayer) but they are holy words!

The hotel was really nice with welcome mint tea on arrival. Our room was clean with a great en-suite.

Generally dirty - room not cleaned properly - there were signs of the previous occupants. I didn't even want to handle the door key, the tag was so greasy and dirty and the sheets and towels were 'tired' to say the least.
