Hmmmmm. Not sure. The Riad is away from the noise and bustle of Marrakech and is an oasis of calm, but the rooms are dark, not very comfortably furnished, the bed was hard and there is just a curtain between the bedroom and bathroom. They were clean and serviced every day. The WiFi never worked and the TV only had a negative picture and only one English speaking channel out of hundreds. The Managere couldn't care less about things not working. Breakfasts were adequate, if rather samey. We didn't sample the in-house dinner. As other reviewers have said,m the main square is a 20 minute walk away, but there are good restauants serving wine and beer closer than that. Be warned: the manager will try to get 44 Dhms per person per night out of you for taxes just as you are leaving. This is fine if you are an independant traveller, but if you have gone with a company ie Thompsons etc check that you don't need to pay these. We were stopped frrom leaving the Riad until we had paid the tax as we couldn't get hold of our Rep and now we have the hassle of claiming it back. We saw it happen to other couples, so it is a regular occurrance.
