Comfortably seated in the groundfloor 'reception' area we were served freshly brewed mint tea
while Nellie made us feel at home and and gave us a verbal guided tour of the Riad and the surrounding area.
My wife had been ill for two days and I was suffering internal upset so we were not the most
inspiring guests! But Nellie, and her staff, for two days went out of their way to make us comfortable, catered to our every wish and served food acceptable to our delicate stomachs. She even sent out for special requests such as bananas, and late one night for hariri from a local restaurant.
Our room was spacious & comfortable with efficient air conditioning. The bath was stylish and
large with a powerful shower.
Everything was just first rate ! Definitely recommended.
As this Raid was booked for us through Alizes Travel of Casablanca, as part of an all-inclusive tour I cannot commment on 'value' [ though I rate it highly !]
