A friend and I recently travelled to Morocco. We chose to stay at Riad Africa based on the trip advisor reviews. We were welcomed by Redouan and made to feel very comfortable. We were expecting to be accommodated in a twin room and this was quickly modified by temporarily placing us in another room and was then rectified the following day. We found the room to satisfactorily accommodate our needs. We were located on the ground floor which I was led to believe by other guest a better option for full wifi connectivity.
The room was equipped with a small television (we didn't find the time to watch it), it had a safe in the wardrobe (could have easily been carried away and therefore should have been secured) and there were was no where to hang your wet towels or to place your shower toiletries. I would suggest travelling with a power board as there were limited power adapters to accommodate our need to charge multiple technology devices on a daily basis.
We found the Riad to be a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the streets and the souks. The pool area allowed for a refreshing cool down from the heat and the roof top a tranquil place for some sun bathing and reading.
The staff, in particular Redouan did everything possible to make us feel comfortable and to ensure that we felt like we were at home. He was keen to learn of our daily experiences and next adventures.
We found the location of the Riad in the Medina to be ideal. We stayed at Riad Africa twice during our visit to Morocco and stayed in the same room on both occasions. The second stay was unplanned. It was tucked away in a small lane which initially was difficult to find. And yes, as mentioned in some other reviews on some evenings it appeared a little dark, but as two female travellers we felt safe and the hotel did have torches available if need be.
The greeting drink, first dinner and breakfast were served with a smile ensuring that all could be done to make our stay comfortable.
Thank you to all the staff for making our stay enjoyable, comfortable and safe.
