was booked to stay at another riad (same owner) but told we were now staying here as the other one was being decorated. Was only told this a few days before arrival and only because i emailed to ask for the airport transfer. Pictures looked really nice and so did the pool unfortunately not quite the same when we arrived. Firstly insisted on complete payment on arrival, very poor rate given when paid in MDH,s. With airport taxi and city tax ended up paying nearly £300.00 for 5 nights in a double room. The pool was really small, more a plunge pool and freezing cold as it was inside and not heated. The whole riad although typically Moroccan was tired and in need of sprucing up. Went to put some of our jewellry in a trinket pot in our room and found a used condom!!! DISCUSTING. None of the following services stated on website were actually at the riad - tour desk? turkish/steam bath? sauna? massage? restaurant?. what the owner means is that that he can arrange these at extortionate prices. The breakfast was the same every morning - pre-cooked pancakes and then re heated in microwave which made them tough . The walk to the main square and souks took 15 mins and you were lucky to escape with your life trying to avoid being knocked down by motorbikes, cars and horse and carts ( but thats the same everywhere in the medina). Also as a blonde mum and blonde teenage daughter we were constantly having unwanted attention from the moroccans on the walk. Enjoyed the 2nd part of our trip much more when we moved to the new city and stayed in a proper hotel ( the tikida gardens was superb )
