We stayed at Riad Chi Chi in late October and when the taxi driver rang from the train station to get directions we wrongly assumed he was saying we would be arriving shortly. There was a guy waiting near where the taxi dropped us off and he took us down the rather daunting alleys to Riad Chi Chi - we wouldnt have gone down the last alley except there was a sign Riad Chi Chi. The baggage guy then demanded 300 MAD which was about 10 times the amount - he was very intimidating and by the time the Riad door was opened we had paid. The Riad building is lovely but as we had stayed at another nearer the main square found this one to be out of the way of the restaurants on the square and more difficult to access. Yvonne was there on our first night to guide us to a restaurant she did offer to come and collect us but we found out way back with the help of GPS.
