I spent 5 nights at the Riad Idra in Mid-March and it was an unforgettable experience. I have chosen the riad because of its excellent ratings on Tripadvisor and must say, the place has even exceeded my high expecations. The hotel is beautifully furnished and kept in spanking condition by very likeable and friendly staff. Each room is individually and tastefully decorated and you can be sure it looks exactly as on the official pictures. Generally I do not fancy breakfast in hotels. But here it was simply superb: Mr. Omar, the Maître d'Hotel and the other waiters serve a wide range of freshly prepared delicacies (both sweet and salty). In fact, the cuisine of the riad is delicious and I highly reccomend to have at least once dinner at Idra (in fact I ate the best Morrocan dishes here, even though I have also been at a five star restaurant). Also the mint tea is excellent! Karine, the manager of the riad, helped me patiently with every question I had and gave me perfect advice on where to go and what to see. I also booked a trip to the Ourika Valley there. Hicham, the driver and a pleasant and interesting conversational partner, only stopped at the best places and personally made sure I got a reliable guide for my hike to the waterfalls.
The Riad Idra is really an oasis in every respect: beauty, calm, and culinary art, all accompanied by an impeccable service of really dedicated and warmhearted personnel.
Dear Karine, Omar, Hicham and all of you: Thank you very much again!
