When as 4 ladies we arrived at the Riad quite late in the evening we were a little apprehensive as it seemed to be in a very run down back alley but as soon as we entered the Riad and were welcomed by Abdellatif and Sammera were immediately at ease and felt very safe. The Riad is beautifully furnished and each room we went into there were gasps of.... Oh isn't this beautiful , I want one !!! If only we had enough room to pack all we wanted to buy. Abdellatif organised trips for us, booked restaurants , organised transport ,drew maps so we could find our way , told us where was safe to go for 4 women and answered any questions we had. He couldn't have been more helpful or kind,he even shared his cigarettes with my friend who claims she doesn't smoke !! In daylight the location was fine and the narrow streets were interesting not intimidating and certainly very safe even late at night. The people in the adjoining buildings were friendly especially the beautiful children . Samerra was the icing on the cake we were thoroughly spoilt , nothing was too much trouble and always with an amazing smile. Each morning she made breakfast for us which we ate by the inside pool , relaxed and planned our day . We sunbathed on the amazing terrace and Sammera made sure we had confortable sunbeds complete with hats etc . even water and snacks were brought up for us even though we didn't request them. I have stayed in many different standards of hotels but have to say the bed I had in the Riad was probably the most comfortable ever. Sammera rushed off to the market on our last day to buy fresh produce to make us a meal even though it was very short notice and what she prepared was delicious . We all agreed we should have taken more meals in the Riad if this was what you could expect .
