I spent many hours looking for a Riad for our four day trip and as soon as I saw the photos, I knew this was 'The One'. Perfectly situated in the Medina, ten minutes walk from the main square and five from the Souks, Riad Tarabel has three bedrooms, three lounges and a stunning roof terrace. The central garden has orange trees, a bubbling fountain and a family of tortoises (they bring good luck) that wander around and like to sleep in the Argana room. The decor is extremely tasteful in muted blues, greys, beige and white and all the furniture is really comfortable. We arrived late so we pre-booked a dinner at the Riad which was delicious. Breakfast was yoghurt, fresh fruit and pancakes, taken on the roof terrace to the murmur of summertime music. We'd also come up here mid afternoon to relax and sunbathe. The staff were lovely. They kept our room immaculate, gave us lots of advice on shopping and restaurants and provided endless cups of mint tea and coffee day or night. Without doubt, the most beautiful, inspiring place I have ever stayed - I couldn't recommend it enough.
