“To avoid”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

There was never enough hot water for all the rooms (one of us could have the hot shower, but never both of us on the same morning!) They said they called the plumber to fix it however no difference was ever noticed, and we later found out that the boiler wasn’t big enough for the 6 rooms. Our towels have never been changed. The staff and the management booked for us restaurant and excursion. Each times we ended up paying two to three times more than the usual given price i.e. they arranged our New year's eve package diner telling us that would be £35 per person, and we had a surprising bill of £280 Happy New Year!!!!. We feel like we have been ripped off; the place looks lovely, but we would not go back there, and would not recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Don't pay extra for "executive" room as all the rooms are the same!

We spent the last two nights of our trip to Morocco in this Riad. It is in the middle of the bustling,noisy city very near the Souk. Inside is a peaceful haven!
We had booked a triple for the 3 of us.When we arrived,Vincent,the most charming owner decided that my daughter was old enough to have her own room & he did so at no extra cost.
The staff Jamilla,Nadine & Hameed were absolutely wonderful,made us right at home.The food was excellent & in plenty.Jamilla & Nadine were gracious enough to take time off of their busy schedule to give us an impromptu cookery lesson on the pancakes they make for breakfast. Delicious!
The courtyard is charming.The rooms are beautifully decorated in the Moroccan style. You can chill out on the rooftop terrace & have your meals up there.There is a Hammam as well,although we did not use it.
It has been only 2 months since this Riad has been open for business & I am sure it is going to be a great success! We have no reservations about recommending this gem to anyone. We wish Vincent & his staff the very best.

The De Silvas.
