Our relationship with the riad began before we even left England. Allan responded with good humour (and useful information) to my many emailed questions. From the point of our arrival at the riad, centrally located in the medina, to our departure 5 days later, you could not have asked for more helpful and hospitable hosts.All the rooms were beautifully furnished, beds were comfortable, and showers had plenty of hot water. Seemingly, no request was too much for Allan and his staff, and Allan was also a knowledgeable guide, taking us into the souk to show us good places to purchase items (and also pointing out not so good places!) Several of the group went to the cookery school and thoroughly enjoyed themselves, while the rest of us got to eat the results, which were delicious.
I would unreservedly recommend this riad if you are looking for somewhere that will positively enhance your holiday experience.
