“Lovely Riad, great value for money!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011 via mobile

My boyfriend and I have recently stayed at Riad Spa Du Chameau and enjoyed it very much.

The Riad itself is done to a hight standard and the place was always spotlessly clean.The Riad is fairly new hence the reason for so little reviews but you can rest assure it is excellent accommodation and great value for money.

The staff speak little English but were happy to help anyway they could. Breakfast was served on the roof terrace and consisted of pastries, pancake, bread, orange juice and coffee.I think this is standard across Riads.

The location is in the heart of the Medina and down a some small ally ways.It may be a little daunting for single travellers as the closer to the Riad the small and quieter the allys.A map is however provided by the Riad, failing that a local will always offer to guide you through the maze but expect to pay them.

The Riad itself is a 15 minute walk to the main sq or a 3minute walk to moukef place where you can catch a taxi.

All in all if you are looking for a Riad in the centre of the Medina and want to see a little of how the locals really live I can't recommend this Riad enough.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2011

We stayed here for two nights in mid-October 2011. It is a beautifully laid-out, clean and very comfortable Riad. The rooms have air conditioning which is a big plus and the beds/baths are huge which is a good thing because I am huge ! The staff were helpful, the breakfasts good and the place peaceful. It's a circa 15 minute walk through a proper Moroccan souk until you reach the tourist souks and the main square. The Riad provided us with a basic map which we managed to follow to get there and back. Would more-than-likely stay here again if I come back to the city.

Excellent stay, spotless throughout, beautifully decorated Moroccan theme rooms with a massive bed, maybe even bigger than kingsize! The roof top terrace is just as in the pictures online, really beautiful.

We stayed in 5 different riads on out trip and this one had one of the best breakfasts we had including freshly squeezed orange juice. In fact it was one of the best riads we stayed in overall.

The service was brilliant, we were welcomed with a mint tea and offered regular mint teas throughout our stay. Initially we got ripped off by some people on the street on the way to the hostel who wanted a lot of money for walking us 3 streets to find the riad, but once we got in the manager of the riad (Ejam) went out and sorted it for us. We had room service every day and (much to our embarrassment) all our clothes neatly folded.

The riad was in the old medina about 15 minute walk from the central square. It was really quiet and relaxing which was really needed after the hustle and bustle of the city, i would not want to be too much closer to the main square. We ended up getting very lost the first few times walking to the square as the streets are like a maze, but when we told the manager he gave us his mobile number and said to call him if we were lost (which we did at about midnight one night after wandering for a good hour) and he walked out to come and find us. He even drew us a really detailed hand drawn map to help and after a few walks to and from the square we eventually got to know the way. Tip for directions...dont use shops as landmarks as they totally close at night!

We didn't use the all spa facilities as it was too hot, but they looked really clean the plunge pool was also very clean and very refreshing.

Overall it was a brilliant stay, we were totally looked after throughout our whole stay, really clean, beautiful decor, excellent breakfast and the manager (Ejam) could not have done more to help us! We would defiantly come back!

Room Tip: We stayed in two different rooms...both of similar very high standard, both had excellent air condit...
