Visited this riad in February. It was a group off 11 ladies so we were fortunate enough to have the riad all to ourselves. Bliss!
We arrived and meet very easily by our transfer and meet at the end of the transfer by Yassan who relieved us of our luggage. We were then led through the winding streets to the riad. We had dinner that night which was nice. We also had some entertainment in the form of 2 men playing some instruments and interacting with us! Very interesting.
The riad itself was lovely. The rooms although quite small were lovely and spacious enough for the 2 people that were staying in it. (One room had 3 people). It was furnished beautifully the bathrooms were all very nice. It got cold in the evenings, so we slept with the air conditioning on and under blankets.
The communal areas were all very nice and the terrace was lovely. We enjoyed sitting up there for breakfast and at night, although a little chilli in Feb!
Breakfast in the morning consisted of fruit, yogurt, an egg based dish, bread with butter and jams and fresh orange juice, tea and coffee. It was a lovely start to the day.
We were also given a mobile phone to communicate with the staff if we got lost and they could help us to find our way back. There was a little shop on the corner by the riad so that was convenient also, although nothing was too far away.
Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable stay, and I would certainly stay again.
