Beatuful Riad that really lets itself down. Firstly we arranged for a pick up because we knew it was difficult to find. We were charged €25 for a journey that took 10 minutes from the airport. We discovered later that a taxi would be a maximum €10. Our room was the suite which we were upgraded to and it was beautiful. However our towels were not changed the entire 5 days nor was our bed linen changed. We spoke to other guests and they had the same, so it is clearly policy and not an oversight.You only get a free bottle of water the day you arrive, after that it's €2.5 unless you buy from a local shop where it's €0.50. Breakfast was very nice except that it's all bread and cake and the same every day with no choice offered and no fruit.
On the positive side the staff are all extremely nice and helpful and the Riad is absolutely beautiful. It's just a shame they let themselves down in such simple ways.
