I think this place gets good reviews because compared to its surroundings it is definitely a haven. When one walks in one is charmed by the decor, the owner Patrick, everything is so clean and fresh compared to the donkey poo, small alleyways, dust, rubbish and loose pavements to get there.
My family did a short stay in March. The service by the staff is faultless. The breakfast inc is good, though you will only get carbs and no protein. 2/3 beds were comfortable though the third bed was missing planks in the middle which meant the mattress sagged. The bathroom had an awful sewer smell coming from it the entire time. To top this all off, you do not get a key or code to enter. Once you finally negotiate your way to the Riad you have to knock on the door or press the bell to be let in. You could be standing there for 10 minutes or more and this is what happened for many guests at 12-1am when I was trying to sleep.
Knock, knock, ding-dong, ding-dong, knock, knock. If that's not enough local kids hang around the Main Street to help show you to the Riad if you are lost and then ask you for money afterwards. In fact, I was harassed by the kids for 2 days about it.
It's a lovely Riad compared to where it is, but probably not compared to other Riads and hotels you could choose from.
