The Riad is really cheap and with that in mind, it's great. The room was lovely with a comfortable bed and a nice design. The bathroom was big, though you have to remember to replace the plug in the shower basin after showering otherwise it makes the bathroom smell of drains. People have complained in other reviews about the water, but if you ask the staff will show you how to get the hot water running.
The Riad itself is ok, though not great. The communal area downstairs is quite nice but not particularly special, the "sun terrace" is really just a concrete roof. The breakfast is tasty but not inspiring - drink, bread and jam, but the juice is freshly squeezed.
The staff are really friendly and gave us good advice about where to eat and about buying argan oil.
