Having stayed at Riad Chbanate a few months ago, we decided that we would break the habit of a lifetime and actually take the time to review somewhere we've visited. We have both been to the far corners of the world and stayed in some pretty special places but this place has to be the best. In fact, it's the first time we've been somewhere where it would be criminal for us not to spread the word!
The riad itself is sumptous; an idyllic oasis in the sometimes crazy world of Morocco. The rooms are absolutely gorgeous; traditional Moroccan furniture, drapes and decor. Our room (Suite Berbere, the cheapest on offer) was delightful - particularly the enormous limestone bath - and it's hard to imagine how any of the other rooms could be better - although we're sure they are!
Guests are guaranteed excellent service from Jean and the charming Greggy. Both will bend over backwards to assist in any way they can and to ensure everyone's stay is truly memorable. Guests will also be treated to a spectacular breakfast of croissants, pains-au-chocolat, pancakes, jams, spreads, fruit salad, yoghurt, freshly squeezed orange juice and more every morning! The riad also benefits from a gorgeous open-air courtyard where you can relax on low, soft seated furniture and a roof terrace complete with jacuzzi.
We won't rush back to Morocco - only because there are hundreds more countries still to see - but if we do go back, the main reason will be to go back here.
