Myself and my two sisters spent three great days at the Riad Dix Neuf under the attentive care of Christian (manager) and his wonderful staff (mohammed et al). Like most people we were struggling to decide on one riad but were so glad we chose to stay here. The decor is understated but beautiful and we made full use of the shared living spaces on the ground floor to chill out, play scrabble/cards and drink G&Ts etc. The roof terrace was also lovely with comfy ratan sun loungers and umbrellas if you fancy a bit of sunbathing (fyi it was warm enough to sunbathe in a bikini in the first week of nov but chilly in the evening so take a wrap/sweater for dinner on the roof - highly recommended!). Which brings me to the food. Breakfasts were immense and gorgeous, we stocked up on morrocan crepes, delicious homemade yoghurt and fruit to keep us going until dinner time (with a mint tea and biscuit break about 4pm!). We ate at the riad 2 out of three nights and both times the food was gorgeous. You don't know what you're having until the night so fussy or unadventurous types take note! But we enjoyed among other things a very tasty monkfish tagine and slow cooked lamb with prunes.
We shared a room (sabah) and though we had an extra bed on the floor, it wasn't too cramped, though we are sisters so used to bunking in together. We had a wonderful subterranean black stone bathroom but if you like natural daylight to apply make-up etc, this is possibly not the best choice for you. Situation wise the riad is on the outskirts of the souks and close to the main square. It's set on quite a bustling street but inside all is calm and serene. We even slept through the call to prayer a few times! I could go on gushing for ages but we really did feel totally at home here and the riad felt more like staying in a luxury self catered holiday home than a hotel. Christian is the perfect host and we can't wait to go back! Don't hesitate to book.
Oh and one more thing to note, as three women in their 20s-30s we nearly didn't book the riad as it has no onsite hamman/spa, one thing we were determined to do on our short trip, but the maison d'arabe, a boutiquey hotel nearby, has a good spa/hamman that we used on our last day so it really wasn't a problem at all.
