We booked this riad based on the reviews, and were not disappointed.
Liked: Hosts / owners (Grant & Michele) were very agreeable, friendly and attentive. Staff were well trained, polite and helpful. The riad had a calm and peaceful atmosphere. It was relatively newly built (about 5 years old) from an old house lived in by a number of prostitute families. Current owners knocked down the old house and built a new house from the ground up. Room & bathroom were spacious. Roof top had lovely views and was relaxing after a hustled day (we did not like by harassed and pestered by shops). The decorations in the house and room were very nice (a credit to Michele) in line with Moroccan culture. Breakfasts were good with a few choices.
Could have been better: Bed was not as comfortable as we would like. Plumbing was not great - toilet had to be flushed twice or more, water in basins drained very slowly, shower pressures were adequate but water drained very slowly - due to the old plumbing system with small pipes. Hot water in each room was heated by a separate tank, so the second person might have a warm instead of hot shower. There is no bath, only shower.
Overall, our stay was enjoyable and pleasant.
