I stayed at The Repose in June with a friend for two nights. I was impressed by the service even before staying. Jan was very efficient when responding to emails, and extremely helpful in answering all my questions. Jan kindly arranged transfers to and from the Riad, which were both efficient and great value. We also pre-arranged a mornings walking... More

Our last night in Morocco was in The Repose, with Jan's English accent a welcome change from what we were used to. Again, the welcome was very warm and the rooms were AMAZING, with lots of little 'extras' in our rooms. The food was served on the rooftop and was just delicious. Great stay.

The complicated location makes this Riad even more charming. Amazing place, very warm hosting, great Moroccan decoration, each room has a personality! Definitely recommended. Enjoy the welcome drink, the tray of cookies and fruits, the room, the rooftop breakfast... Stayed there only for a quick night after a last minute booking and enjoyed every minute.

On our tour of Morocco we spent three nights at this riad and very much enjoyed it. Not the easiest place to find although Jan's instructions as far as the pharmacie were excellent. After that you need help! Sale is a quiet little town with a beautiful medersa and an interesting souk. Jan is a mine of useful information and... More

This is the first of eleven reviews of our Moroccan visit, to be followed by Tangier. Stayed on 18th April, 2014. Salé is a suburb of Rabat, and the riad is not easy to find. It helps that the owner is English, and so calling for directions is easy. The first benefit of staying here is that you will save... More

Our stay here was one of the highlights of our backpack around Morocco. Jan was really helpful arranging a taxi from the station to her Riad which is advisable to start with as it's tricky to find. The Riad is beautifully restored with different themed rooms and a great roof terrace where you have breakfast. Try to book the Mango... More

We stayed 3 nights in the Repose, and it was the first stop on our 3 week stay in Morocco. We couldn't have started in a nicer place. Jan and Rachid were perfect hosts - nothing was too much trouble and they helped us acclimatise very well. The riad is very beautiful, and all the extra touches were very much... More

We arrived from a long day of traveling to a wonderful oasis of calm and beauty. Jan greeted us with mint tea, fruit and exquisite pastries. The riad is stylishly renovated and very charming. Jan was very helpful both before our visit and during our short stay. Our blue room was lovely and spacious with a great bathroom. I enjoyed... More

This was our first Riad experience in Morocco. Our driver took us down the long medina street to the Repose. We certainly felt like we were staying in the heart of an authentic Moroccan town. We were greeted by the host Jan, a Brit who has renovated and set up the Repose with her Moroccan family. A welcoming coffee and... More

I have never left a review on trip advisor before, but I felt this Riad was worthy of exceptional praise. The owners made us feel warmly welcomed from the moment we booked, let alone arrived, going beyond what I had expected by organising taxi transfers too and from the airport. We were delighted to be presented with a selection of... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lovingly restored by the owners, Rachid and Jan, this luxury riad has been renovated and decorated using traditional materials and craftsmanship to give a haven of peace and tranquility. The whole riad oozes Moroccan charm and each of the 4 suites has its own unique identity. The salon is ideal for dining in the cooler months, reading a book or playing games. The courtyard is great for sipping tea, listening to the splashes of the fountain, while the terrace is fabulous for breakfast, sunbathing or siestas in the shade. With Rachid and Jan living on-site, the hospitality and customer service are second-to-none and the combination of their local knowledge and awareness of international expectations ensures a warm and comfortable stay. ... more   less
