“Oasis of Tranquility”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

This Riad is run by Alain and Nezha one of the nicest couples we have met on our travels.

This is a beautiful home with lots of little touches to make your stay feel special.

We arranged to be picked up from the airport for EUR 12 which was effortless. This is the best approach as the Riad may be a little hard to find on a first visit.On arrive we were offered mint tea and pastries which were very acceptable.We stayed for 4 nights in two different rooms of which both were very comfortable and clean.

Breakfast was included in our stay which was a selection of pastries, tea ,coffee orange juice, ect which was served in the lounge or on the roof terrace in the warmer months.

We would highly recommend staying here as both Alain and Nezha were excellent hosts. It has has a very relaxed atmosphere and both were on hand when needed.

The Riad itself is about a 20 minute walk through the Souks to the main square with lots to see and buy on the way.

We highly recommend this Riad and would not hesitate to stay again on our next trip

Room Tip: In the colder months choose a room in the middle of the Riad

This riad is just lovely, with lots of small touches in decoration combining to make an amazing ambience in both the communal rooms and the bedrooms. The owners have a wonderful eye for aesthetics. The bed was large and comfortable, the room very dark at night. I have problems sleeping normally but slept really well all 3 nights I stayed here. The breakfasts were a selection of pastries every day which were nice, but some fruit or hot food would have been a nice touch. The rooftop terrace where they pipe out relaxing music is a wonderful place to watch the sun go down and listen to the calls to prayer at the end of the day, it feels very spiritual.

If you do book with this riad, please get in touch with the owners beforehand as we got totally lost and had a bunch of undesirable local young men take us into what felt like a trap and we had to seek refuge in a local shop where they phoned the riad on our behalf to come and pick us up. I would also say the riad is more like 30 minutes' walk from the Jemaa al Fna square. But overall this is astonishingly good value and highly recommended.

You cannot find this riad by yourself. There is no riad sign. Owner has to come to a nearby square to guide you. Lady owner has artistic flair and rooftop terrace is a lovely garden to sit and relax. Breakfast provided was poorest of all breakfasts we had in three weeks travel in Morocco. Scott33
