I stayed here with a friend for a week. The staff here, Khamissa, Abdou and Fatima couldn't be more helpful and frindly. Khamissa and Abdou do speak English but if you know any French then they speak that fluently.
The place was very clean and breakfast was excellent. . If you get the chance to have dinner here then do. Fatima's food it terrific. It has a roof terrace which is lovely to come home to after walking for miles around the Souks, and breakfast could be served up here if you wish.
The Riad is situated out of the hustle of the Souks and night life. It's in a local community (but most Riads are) and you get to experience the locals at first hand.
We took a taxi to the coast, Essauuira, which is a lovely fishing port. We also took a taxi up to the Cascades at the foot of the Atlas Mountains, this is not a stroll so do wear adequet footwear. We shared both taxis with a French couple who where staying at Zenithya, so it can't hurt to ask if there are others staying there who might be up for sharing.
If you are an animal lover then this might be an upsetting holiday. The cats and horses that are everywhere are not in the best of health, and this was the only thing about this holiday that I didn't like.
