Lovely position in the old Medina, and staff could not have been more helpful. Met at the airport as arranged and given mint tea on our arrival. The rooms were a big disappointed because they were very dark and cold, although we did have heaters to warm the place up-it still felt damp. The room with the big terrace, which is lovely-is quite open-and not secure as it only has plastic sheeting round. So every time one went out-everything had to be put in the bedroom & that door locked. Also the bathroom was across the terrace-so a nightime visit was very cold! The pool, which we thought we may be able to sit round, even if it was too cold to use-was not possible as it is just an one tile wide walk round area, and completely dark as the coconut and palm trees, obliterate the sky. It looks lovely-but just not what one would expect. The roof terrace was excellent-and having breakfast there each morning was a delight. The storks are on the top of the old palace building next to us-and the sounds they make are interesting. The food supplied by Fatima and staff was always top quality and they really could not do enough to make the stay as pleasant as possible. Wifi/internet was advertised-but could only be accessed from inside Paolo's office, again cold and dark-but not up on the terrace in the sun. We loved the Souks, the people generally are friendly and helpful-and weather in the day was great. So I would like to return to Morocco-I loved it-but would not stay in this Riyad again. Staff exceptional and first class-but rooms to us were too dismal and dark. When you come from England-you hanker for the sunlight and unless you went up onto the communal terrace-you couldn't see it. So a nice experience and again-staff were wonderful.
