We stayed at Blanco Riad on our first night in Morrooco after a big day sightseeing in Gibralter, ferry trip, getting through customs in Tangier, and finding our way to Tetouan. Then we really got lost looking for the Riad. All we had to do was find the palace and then call. I have no idea how we missed the palace but we ended up on a car park (which turned out to be the right one) I had the phone number of the owner in Germany (who didn't answer) not the Riad :-(. We sent one of the guys off with a stranger who said he knew where the Riad was and the rest of us stayed in the car. We were two Australian couples in our 60's wondering,on our very first day, if we made a mistake travelling by car independently in Morrocco . It seemed like a long time but back he came with a very helpful staff member and the helpful stranger also re-appeared with a big trolley for the luggage. We had to run to keep up with the guy with the trolley through the crowded souk as we were a bit paranoid about all of our luggage disappearing. The Riad was delightful. The staff were really helpful and the rooms were large with very luxurious en-suites. We had organised dinner there and were so glad we did as we didn't really have the energy to go out to find a restaurant. The meal was great and we had a great time. Free wifi though the signal was a bit week in the rooms and kept dropping out. We enjoyed our Morrocan nreakfast with very sweet mint tea in beauitiful coloured glasses and a silver beaten teapot. Very glad we stayed here and would recommend it to everyone.
