I am trying to decide between Bab Firdaus, Maison Mnabha, Riad de L'orangeraie, and Terrasse Des Oliviers.
(oh, also a place called Riad Dyor my friend wants to go to which looks kind of pretentious).
It is such a hard decision to make because they all look so lovely.
Maison Mnabha looks dazzling, a very Moroccan feast for the senses with all the spectacular ornate tiling and ethnic decoration. But no pool in the middle of June might be hell.
Riad L'Orangeraie has been reviewed so well and seems like a friendly haven of calm, and of course it has the pool. But is it "Moroccan" enough? Seems more Greek... all those white walls.
Terrasse Des Oliviers looks so sweet and welcoming, with the pool and the flower covered conservatory.. I can just see myself having breakfast up there in total happiness. But again, is doesnt seem to have those dazzling Moroccan design aspects Ive seen in other Riads. And is it a bit far from the square?
Finally there is Bab Firdaus, which seems to tick all the boxes, and looks truely breathtaking. Pool, terrace, location, very Moroccan looking, beautiful decor. Buuuut, is it a bit posh? I want to go their for a relaxed and indulgent few days with some friends, but Im affraid it might be full of boring rich old people.. which can have an effect on the vibe of a place!!
Any thoughts or advice would be so appreciated. Hopefully wherever we choose we are bound to have a great time. But it would be great to get a few pointers from anyone in the know. Thanks in advance for any help.
