My wife and I visited Riad Laaroussa specifically for a hammam and spa experience having heard and read about the establishment and the great reputation while we were already thoroughly enjoying our stay in a nearby riad in Fes during a one-week trip to the imperial cities of Morocco booked via a UK-based travel agent.
After our Fes guide rang to book a hammam/spa visit, finding our way on foot was very straightforward.
We were ever so impressed by the outstanding architecture, decor, grounds and facilities.
The manager and all staff members we met were efficient and provided faultless hospitality and communication with the utmost professionalism and friendliness from the outset.
After enjoying well-prepared and well-presented refreshments, the hammam/spa was unhurried, relaxing and invigorating with a wide range of options and treatments to choose from. Overall, it was a fantastic experience that was very competitively priced for the first class service and attention provided.
Afterwards, we opted to spend more of the afternoon at the riad to enjoy the ambience and more refreshments.
Other guests and visitors appeared very pleased with Riad Laaroussa and a good rapport between staff and customers seemed evident.
We were grateful to be afforded the time to be shown around some of the unoccupied rooms and suites which, by far, surpassed our high expectations having already seen and been impressed by photos and reviews available via the internet.
In my opinion, Riad Laaroussa thoroughly deserves its many accolades. In fact, the latest TripAdvisor achievements and fond memories of visiting have prompted me to write this unreservedly positive review, albeit some time after visiting.
My wife and I look forward to making time to visit again in the future - to stay in one of the rooms as well as to make the most of the hammam/spa, cookery classes and dining facilities.
