I had chosen to stay at Riad Sekkat having looked at the reviews on Tripadvisor. We took advantage of the 3 nights half-board package which was very good value.
I have to admit I had my reservations as we had to pay half of the reservation upfront to secure the booking and had to do it by bank transfer. However Valerie was very helpful and all went smoothly. She was responsive to all emails and queries.
The whole stay from arrival to departure went smoothly. Khalid, who managed the riad in Valerie's absence, was very hospitable, friendly and helpful. We could not have asked for anything more. They prepared lunch for us on the roof terrace al fresco which was a very nice surprise as it was a very sunny day. We informed Khalid the day before when we wanted our breakfast and dinner and he was always obliging.
The riad is about 7 minutes walk to the souks and about 15 minutes walk to the main square.
I thoroughly recommend the riad for couples, families and groups. They have 4 rooms and it is possible to book the whole riad.
Just be aware that they only speak French, although our friend managed to communicate with Khalid via Google Translate.
