We only spent two nights in August at the El Finn, but they were wonderful. The Riad is beautifully decorated and centrally located. Our first night we stayed in room 15, which was very well appointed with a large lovely bathroom and then, upon meeting Willem, he moved us to room 22, which was even more spectacular. (Even though this room had an outside terrace, in the searing +45 degree heat, we didn’t really have the chance to enjoy. However, on our early morning departure, we were served breakfast there and it was very nice.)
The Riad has lovely sitting areas and a few plunge pools which provide relief when escaping the Medina and the heat.
We had dinner (a delicious lamb and prune tangine) on the rooftop, which was truly beautiful. The staff are incredibly accommodating, from dinner and breakfast service to the cleaning staff (a maid took me on a tour of the unoccupied rooms, when I inquired about the room she was entering to clean, which turned into a mini ‘behind the scenes’ tour of the entire Riad). Everyone was just lovely. They even brought in an outside masseuse to oblige our request for a deep tissue massage, which was miraculous.
I even loved the hand-drawn map they gave us to guide us about the Medina.
A truly wonderful experience and I would highly recommend.
