I've just returned from an amazing week long stay at the Rhiad Tchaikana over the february half term break. We consisted of a group of 4 girls in their twenties. We were really impressed with the traditional yet modern decor, spacious rooms and beautiful touches throughout the hotel. The rooms were spotlessly clean, and the bathrooms had beautiful touches like the black morrocan soap, orange blossom moisturiser and this dry mud stuff which you could mix with water to make a face mask or body scrub.
From the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble for Barbara to organise for us. We arrived to a delicious 3 course meal in the evening for 15 euros, consisiting of soup, lamb tagine (with the most gorgeous stuffed peaches with almonds and dates) cous cous and freshly baked bread, followed by creme caramel.
In fact, we ended up eating at the Rhiad 4 out of the 7 nights we stayed simply because the food was so beautiful. (They would take hours to prepare and cook the meals during the day, unlike the restaurants who make even the tagines as quickly as possible) We also ate at the Cafe Arab and the night market.
Barbara organised for us to take a day trip to the coast, a trip to the Atlas mountains to eat in a Berber village, a camel trek near the mountains, a traditional Hamman nearby and an amazing cookery class at Le Maison Arabe. The cookery class was 600 Dirham, but well worth it, as we went to a spice shop and were taught so much, then ate our dishes, recieved the recipes and best of all were given a gift at the end- A TAGINE FOR 2!!
We were all incredibly sad to leave, especially as we'd grown incredibly fond of Bushra. (I hope I spelt her name correctly) She's been working there for 8 years or so, and made us feel so welcome.
