Heaven on Earth? There are angels everywhere in this delightful riad, situated near the Berrima Mosque. They are present in human form too in the shape of Claudia, Hassan and Sanaa, who look after you from the moment you step through the door.
We spent 3 fabulous nights in this lovely home at the beginning of November and enjoyed every moment of our stay here. Claudia, the owner who speaks seven languages, is a superb hostess and welcomes you with a huge smile every time she sees you.
We arrived a little early after taking the overnight train from Tangier, but she invited us to take breakfast, which was served in the patio by Hassan. It consisted of home made breads, fresh fruit, orange juice, tea, coffee, pastries etc and gave us a taste of what lay in store for us.
We left our bags and went off to explore the town. The riad is situated in the medina near the El Badi Palace and to get to the Jemaa el Fna square you simply cross the Place des Ferblantiers where the lamp makers do their work and set out their produce, then it's straight down a narrow lane to the square. I would say it's a ten minute walk, although it usually took us an hour or more, looking at the various small businesses plying their trade here.
On our return to the riad we were shown our room, which actually turned out to be the three rooms of the suite and our eyes opened wide as we looked around. Beautifully decorated, it is the type of place you look forward to coming back to after a day's exploring. Tea and biscuits are served during the afternoon although we always arrived back after dark to be greeted with candlelit lamps burning in the patio and hallway creating a magical effect.
There were always fresh flowers throughout the riad and we would find little surprises on our return like a small bowl of oranges or little pastries waiting for us. We enjoyed our first taste of Morocco and one of the major reasons was staying in Angel's Riad so we would not hesitate to return there and certainly recommend it as excellent value for money.
