We spent a week here in December 2013 including Christmas Day, as a family group of eight which ranged from my elderly (but intrepid) parents to my very lively 11 year old son. The Riad is spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and comfortably furnished, minimalist but chic and stylish. The staff were extremely kind and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them, the breakfasts on the roof in the morning sun were wonderful and the lunch which was provided for Christmas Day was fantastic. The Riad is about 20 mins walk from the centre of town but after doing it a couple of times, it's not hard to find your way and also it's nice to get away from the crowds and crazy driving! Only slight negative was that the weather was very very cold during our visit and there was nowhere warm and comfy indoors for us to relax together as a family - obviously this wouldn't be a problem in the hotter months of the year when I'm sure the cool courtyard would be a welcome retreat from the heat.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Featured in magazines and guidebooks, Riad Porte Royale was build around 250 years ago and is in an historic but easily accessed quarter of the medina. Recently renovated with traditional materials, the white walls are accented with rugs, rare textiles and artefacts from the caravan routes of Africa and Asia. All five bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms, and the pure Moroccan style make the atmosphere dreamy and zen. Meals at the riad, transport and excursions can be arranged, and is perfect for discerning travellers, families or special occasions. ... more less
