My boyfriend and I stayed here for 7 nights at the end of July (2013) and loved it. It's the perfect distance away from all the action of the main square (10 mins easy walk) but we felt incredibly calm (and safe from the constant attention of the locals!) when we were inside the riad.
We took full advantage of the sun terrace and plunge pool, and felt no qualms about wandering around in our swimwear inside the riad, despite reservations at first that this would not be respectful of the culture.
The staff were all incredibly helpful, especially Mouad who looked after us perfectly - bringing us mint tea, beer and wine whenever we asked for it. The breakfast was lovely - different types of traditional pancakes with toast, jam, marmalade and honey. At times we also had fresh fruit and cake too!
I would say that a basic understanding of French phrases would be useful - my French is limited to the remnants of my high school French and I definitely can't speak in full sentences but key words were useful. At times I understood more than I could reply to but it was really useful to be able to do even just that.
My only other comment would be to be aware of the fact that there is no door between the bathroom and bedroom, only a curtain. This is fine for couples and even good friends, but just be aware that there is a slight lack of privacy.
Overall, a delightful place to stay with lovely staff and superb value for money.
