Our driver pulled up outside a building site and rang the riad for assistance with our baggage. We walked along a muddy dirt track to a very ordinary door, walked down a flight of stairs and were blown away. We stayed in a few riads during our 3 weeks in morocco, but nothing as extraordinary as this. The internal courtyard was palatial, as were the rooms and the roof area was a lovely place for a beer (which you buy elsewhere). The staff were very helpful, especially after a wee hiccup around our son's early morning departure, and the food plentiful. There is renovation work going on inside, but that didn't worry us - and the weather was too cool to use the pool anyway. Wld have loved to have had wifi in the rooms. And a bar in the riad! But it was morocco.
