Before I start I think my review is slightly tainted by circumstances beyond everyone's control. When booking our 1 night stay I had some contact with Maria, who was really helpful and was eager to ensure we had a good stay, offering pick ups and dinner on our arrival and her cheerful emails made us look forward to our time there.
Unfortunately we had to cut some sightseeing from our itinerary due to my partner falling ill the night before so we arrived at the Riad earlier than the staff had expected us. We were met by a very sweet lady (one of the cooks) who was very kind and served us tea and biscuits, but she did not speak English and our French is very poor, so our initial contact was a little stilted. She showed us to our room, which was very nice. From that point on I was essentially a lone guest as my partner slept off his illness. I was brought coffee on the roof terrace, which is really lovely with large swing chairs and loungers.
As a lone guest I found the Riad lacking, there was no one around to chat to, and although there are books in the lounge area they are mainly reference. I realise that generally you find your entertainment outside the riad walls and this is where you relax after a busy day but many people do travel alone and have down time, and as one albeit for a brief time the lack of company and anything to do spoilt the atmosphere for me. As I said at the start much of this was not the fault of the staff or the loveliness of the riad itself, just circumstances.
We also booked a car to the airport the following day which was on time and very efficient.
