We stayed for 5 nights in February and cannot fault the Riad Africa. We stayed in the spotlessly clean Zambezi room and had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. We ate dinner in the riad one evening and the food is excellent, and there's plenty of it. Breakfast was also excellent - varied and plentiful.
The roof terrace was a lovely place for a beer in the afternoon after haggling in the souks, and we spent several relaxed evenings in the salon enjoying a glass of wine in front of the open fire.
Redouan and Tod did everything possible to make our stay comfortable, interesting and enjoyable - in fact ALL the staff were fabulous. We enjoyed our stay so much that we are planning a longer trip to Morocco next year encompassing a stay in the Atlas mountains and a trip to the sahara, and of course we will return to Riad Africa.
