The fun starts when you see your luggage disappearing down narrow lanes deep into the medina with a wonderful glimpse into local life as you chase - you'll soon get used to left, left, left to reach the heavy door down the alleyway. And soon you'll find yourself in a world of tranquility, surrounded by retro chic with rooms over three stories centred around a large and magnificent pool. The suites are fantastic and each room has its own character. The rooftop dining is a terrific experience with excellent food and attentive staff only too happy to chat about Morocco, politics, religion and anything else. The riad is wonderfully quiet after the bustle of the medina and the walk to the museum, souks and market square is fascinating - and safe. Well, we've booked again.
