Previously enjoyed a stay at sister riad papillon, so decided to try the suites at cinnamon to end our 2 week Moroccan trip this time.
The staff are very helpful and friendly, and kindly stopped burning the fragrant oils during my stay (at my request as I have allergies to them). The food was delicious, both breakfast and dinner, and plenty of it.
The suites are stylish, a modern take on traditional values with hints of Buddhism and spirituality thrown in, and it works to provide a very calming space in which to relax.
I have to say that I'm not sure Cinnamon is as good value as the cheaper Papillon (with much smaller rooms), apart from the extra space in the suites, the communal riad spaces are pretty similar. It was also disappointing to find the dipping pool on the terrace was empty, as the pool on the patio although lovely wasn't very private, and we didn't feel we would be comfortable using it.
Having said that, I would recommend Riad Cinnamon for a bit of a splurge, the extra space in the suites is really welcome in a country where a lot of riad rooms are tiny and dark, and it was a pleasure spending some time just chilling in the suite.
Staff were also kind in letting us use one of the rooms after we'd checked out since we had a late flight that day, so we were able to shower and freshen up before departing in the afternoon, really appreciated.
