The Riad is beautiful, the location is fantastic (assuming you want to spend time in the Square and the souks), and the staff was like having a personal concierge 24x7. The place is intimate, quiet, clean, and just large enough for us. Nice amenities like breakfast on the rooftop every morning, rose petals on the bed, a plunge pool (which was nice given the August heat), and a room for reading or games. Our room had a quiet air conditioning unit, a wonderful bed with crisp linens, a safe, and a large bathroom with open shower. There's no TV, but there is free wifi, so just bring your device if you need electronic entertainment. The staff made arrangements for a trip to the mountains, a city guide, getting our laundry done, finding a hamam, reserving a camel ride, etc. They gave us a mobile phone with their numbers preprogrammed in case we ever got lost or needed help. They were absolutely wonderful. There are more luxurious places I'm sure, but I don't think I Could have been happier given our great location and personalized attention.

The garden patio, where you can enjoy the flowers and aromatic plants while the fountain trickles in the background and the pool patio, an invitation to the art of relaxation, beside the sky blue mosaic pool. ... more less
