After weeks and weeks of extensive research in search of the perfect riad we were thrilled when we finally set foot inside this beautiful Riad. From the smooth transfer from the airport in a pre-arranged taxi to our departure when the owners Grant and Michelle personally said their goodbyes, this was an amazing 4 night break which was, in the main, due to our stay at this lovely property.
Grant and Michelle (the english owners) have really hit the spot with their attention to detail and their professionalism whilst managing to retain a laid back friendly approach which immediately makes you feel more like an old friend rather than just a hotel guest. Nothing was too much trouble for any of their staff and Naoual, their head of house was a truly lovely person, always keen to hear what you have been discovering on your trips out of the riad into the madness of the medina and souks. She was an invaluable source of information and really went that extra mile to ensure that we had everything that we needed.
Our suite (the Kaid) was amazing. We have visited a lot of countries over the years but never have we stayed in such a lovely room. The fruit left in our room daily and the beautiful fresh roses were very much appreciated, as was the daily complimentary afternoon moroccean mint tea and pastries.
We decided to dine in on one evening during our stay and the meal was delicious and very reasonably priced. the tagines were the best we experienced anywhere.
Lots has already been said about this wonderful riad. You must experience it for yourself but I defy anyone to find one single fault. It was simply perfect and we long to return in the future.
