We stayed in the Riad Green Mango for two nights and we had the BEST time! We, a party of (demanding) five women, stayed in the rooms on the first floor and slept like babies, the only sound in the morning are singing birds and now and again some call for prayer (not too close by though). The riad is an oasis of tranquility, not too far from the Jemaa el Fna place, about a 15 min. walk (easy to find). You literally leave the busy medina to enter the riad and find peaceful surroundings, exquisitely decorated and with a very cosy atmosphere. We have high standards and an eye for detail, but could not find any flaws in the riad.
Werner welcomed us at the airport and gave us so many useful tips, what to do, how to deal with people, what not to do, etc. while we were enjoying our welcoming thee on the terrace on the rooftop. Seb, the owner, made sure we were allright and gave us some more tips of things to see in the area. The Medersa Ben Youssef certainly is something worth seeing. We had the best time in the jacuzzi, five giggling Belgian women, we had so much fun after a day of sightseeing.
The couscous royale was simply delishious, we had very good wine, the music in the riad was appropriate and well-chosen, allways present in a discrete way. Our entire party of five is unanimous: this was like a dream come true, and we all wish we could come back TODAY.
Keep up the good work! And hopefully we'll soon come back!
