Isabelle and Christian are wonderful hosts. They are hosts in the true sense for they live in the Riad as well so they are extra careful about security. All other reviews -- about Christian's tour, good breakfasts with the home-made yoghurts and jams, location close to the main sights of the medina, the lush towels -- are all true. There are a few notable things that made our stay even better:
1) one day we had to leave early for our trip at 7:30, so we intended to skip the breakfast that starts at 8. Upon finding that out, Isabelle packed some items for us on short notice. But our guide insisted we have our breakfast before the day-long trip to Ouarzazette. Upon hearing that, Isabelle ran to prepare our breakfast at 7:30 in the morning. Amusingly, Christian is always protective of his guests and tries to find out more about the guides to ensure their legitimacy so he talked to the guide while we had our breakfast.
2) our flight didnt leave till 7pm the next day. Given that they weren't expecting any guests, Christian graciously offered to let is have the room till we left for the airport so we could freshen up before we left.
There are some 1500 Riad's in the city as I have learnt, yet it is not a surprise that this Riad is always busy. They truly make their guests feel at home right away, and I would not trade that level of hospitality for anything else.
