We booked Riad Dalia not knowing exactly what to expect and as we approached down the Medina's dark and narrow streets, we were immediately having second thoughts. But as soon as you open the front door you are confronted by a beautiful and calm oasis of comfort. Like everyone who stays here, we were impressed by the welcome the Mohammed gives. He goes out of his way to make sure that you have everything you need. When we told him where we wanted to go for dinner, not only did he make the reservation but he arranged for one of his friends to come and walk with us to the restaurant so that we would definitely find it. It was absolutely essential that he did that.
The room was plenty large for us and looked at many of the others which were all amply sized. The bathroom was gorgeous and the hot water was plentiful and very hot, something that can be rare in Morocco. The breakfast is a mix of Moroccan and European and while simple is more than sufficient. The common area of the riad is very nice and great to have a drink at the end of the day. We had a couple small issues at the very end of our stay, but I don't think those were really Mohammed's fault.
For the native English speakers: Mohammed speaks and understands English better than he is willing to admit. He's not confident about it though. It would be good to tease it out of him as much as possible so he grows more confident.
