Three of my friends and I stayed at Dar Ganou during July 2013 and I just had to confess that we loved this place from the first moment. The conditions are excellent there, and here I refer to hosts, rooms, food, location (very close to center - Jemaa el Fna square - 150 m) and the general atmosphere. We enjoyed a lot the interior courtyard with pool and we also could listen music at night (the living room is directly connected with interior courtyard), even it was the Ramadan at that time. The ryad consists of two stories and there is also a terrace on the roof, where we could enjoyed the urban environment at night.
The rooms are impeccable, decorated in arabic style (air-conditioning, bathroom, they are opened to the interior courtyard). The breakfast is in the same style (a loot of tea, milk, coffee, fruits, cakes), all of the food in very nice arabic tableware (you will not forget it :D).
I also want to thank Veronique and Jean-Marque (the hosts), because they helped us a lot in difficult moments (we found out from them the right prices for market - because in Marroco, generally, you have to negociate everything :D, they helped us to go to desert by an organised trip). Veronique also has a very cute dog that will make your holiday a complete one :D.
I just want to mention that, if you're for the frist time in Marroco, it will be a little difficult to find the ryad (at least, this was our situation), because it is placed, as all the ryads and hotels in Marroco, in the very narrow streets, that's why it is better to contact the host before coming.
Have a nice holiday at Dar Ganou!
PS: Kind regards from Romania (Andra, George, Ion & Raluca). Mersi beaucoup pour tout Veronique and Jean-Marque!
