We stepped from the narrow alleyway down into the old doorway set in a vast wall to arrive at the Riad , Porte Royale which is hidden oasis of peace. The rooms are plain and simple with very comfortable beds and lovely antique Moroccan doors and windows and tribal rugs .
Mohamed and his wife Hagiba welcomed us and continued to look after us so well our whole stay, organising taxis , restaurants , outings and serving us delicious breakfasts . Thank you also to Phillip the owner who went out if his way to help us enjoy such great days out , in the Atlas Mountains on mules , to a really unusual hotel with swimming pool for lunch plus all the taxi arrangments went like clockwork. We went to the souks on many occaisions , and found local people very helpful and welcoming .
The Marjorelle Gardens with the Berber Museum inside was superb and quite different from any garden I have visited. It was a great holiday for all six of us and many thanks !!
