To be honest, I thought some of the previous reviews had to be fake, as the first few sentences of many of them are pretty similar. But I was dead wrong--Riad Cherrata was fantastic and Valerie was awesome. She hosted my wife and I for two nights and did everything she could to make our stay and experience at comfortable as possible. She provided us a complimentary cell phone to use, hand-drawn maps, and made all of our meal reservations at good area restaurants (as we didn't speak French or Arabic). The interior of the riad itself is beautiful and the complimentary terrace breakfast every morning couldn't be beat; we also stayed in the Maillechort room, which was spotless. Valerie even made a point of walking us out to our taxi to say goodbye as we left for the airport--we couldn't have asked for more for our first trip to Morocco. Fantastic--thank you again Valerie!
