We stayed two nights at one of the suite rooms at courtyard level. Nice decoration, size of room and bathroom was fine. Everything was clean. Some smell of - we think - cats in the room, but okay. The riad itself is very nice renovated and decorated. The courtyard is beautiful. Two big terraces on the roof, compared to other rooftop pools in Marroco this one is very big. The riad is centrally located and easy to find, after first help. Public parking on the street is also easy to find (streets without big traffic). One will pick you up there. The ladies who manage the riad are very friendly and their cooking is suberb. We had one of the best tahjines we got at Marroco. Meknes is good for a day especially as a starting point before going f.e. to Fes. Everything at the Medina is smaller and more relaxing than Fes, but the last one is the real highlight of the four royal cities. We looked at some other riads at Meknes. In our opinion Riad al Ma is one of the best options at Meknes, especially if you consider value money relation.
