We stayed in August 2010 for 5 days and had the whole riad to ourselves as it was the lowest of low season and not many people were crazy enough as we were to travel to Marrakesh at that time. It was 49 degrees C the day we arrived and the breakfast butter melted in front of us! Weather aside we loved our stay so much we can't wait to go back.
Riad La Rose D'Orient is a fabulous new riad but has been meticulously built and decorated by very caring owners. The couple and their staff were fabulous in arranging our first night's dinner (lamb tagine and cous cous like we've never had before!), restaurant recommendations and general advice on gettting around.
They even helped me arrange a secret birthday surprise - a 2 day side trip to Essourira - highly recommended.
The rooms and bathrooms are private and beautiful with plenty of space and good aircon. The traditional Moroccan decor was such a treat and it was lovely wandering the souks trying to work out how we could have a Moroccan room back home.
Although it is not in the centre of town, it is an interesting and easy walk to the square and it is well lit and feels safe. The location is nice and quiet ensuring a good night's sleep.
The rooftop covered spa was refreshinly cool in the heat and we used it everyday. The pool downstairs is so pretty but we didn't use it, preferring the roof top.
