Stay here. That's all my review should read. It's how I feel. Kinda sums it all up really. What a truly lovely riad in one of Morocco's funnest towns. The rooms are beautifully and imaginatively appointed and a cool retreat from the town's buzzy pace. The breakfasts were delicious and plentiful, and the courtyard is a friendly heart to this classy place to stay. Greggy greeted us on arrival and he couldn't have been more attentive. His friendly, discrete service is what made this place so memorable. When we checked in (we were a party of 4) I was unwell and he was very quick to ensure I was in one of the air conditioned rooms ready to rest. He couldn't have been more helpful and throughout the rest of our stay (we were there 2 nights) he and the team proved a happy, attentive group with a real knack for customer service. The reason why this place gets a good rave on Tripadvisor is clear to me now. It deserves it. A wonderful place in a great part of town with a top team running it. My hunch is that you won't find better for the price.
