This riad is situated in a great location in the medina but close enough to an exit so you don't have to carry your suitcases far. It is peaceful and beautifully designed. The staff were so friendly and attentive. They recommended places for us to visit and even explained how the locals buy their fish from the market and get it cooked for them (which we did). We stayed in the Oriental room for 6 nights and it was lovely with rustic furniture and a large bathtub. The breakfast every morning consisted of fresh fruit salad, toast, pancakes, croissants, pan au chocolate and fresh orange juice. They also provide free bottles of water whenever you need it. There is a terrace with chairs to sunbathe or read. The trick is to find a place out of the wind! I would advise taking a thin cardigan & scarf for protection from the coastal wind.
