This is a beautiful little oasis away from the craziness and heat (depending on the time of year) of the Medina. All the photos posted here and on the website are a great reflection of what the riad is really like. I selected this riad because of its position (which really is fabulous – 5mins walk to the main market), the well appointed rooms (nicely decorated in the traditional style and more spacious than many of the others that I saw online), the size of the riad (ie not too big), great reviews and reasonable price. It lived up to all my expectations but the real surprise was the wonderful hosts – Mohammed and Fatima. It was not physically possible for them to be more kind or accommodating. My partner speaks only a little French (I can’t at all) but it really wasn’t a problem. The breakfasts prepared by Fatima were ample, delicious and changed each day. While the pool is traditional and small it is perfect for sitting back comfortably at the end of a tiring day. One suggestion, if you like having a glass or two at night make sure you bring your own alcohol because it is not possible to buy it in the Medina. While most of the more expensive restaurants serve alcohol it is also nice to have an aperitif at the riad – like us, you might find that you want to maximize your time there. While we didn’t eat at the riad in the evenings, I imagine Fatima’s dinners are wonderful, given the quality of the breakfast.
