Every guide book, guide and taxi driver will tell you about the marvellous Hotel Mamounia. Even Churchill said it was the best hotel he had stayed in. Well he couldn't have been to the Riad Ilayka. The service provided by Nadia and Anna and their wonderful staff could not be bettered.The rooms are beautiful, the service impeccable and the warmth of the welcome overpowering. The only spooky thing was at one point I thought Anna and Nadia might be clairvoyant as they seem to be able to predict ones need and provide it before one had realised one needed it. The only thing that don't understand is "snack" ; ask for one only if you want six bowls of various dips, three flat breads, assorted fried samosas and honey pastries with mint tea.
