Very reasonable rates and fantastic service. Staff at this Riad always helpful and go out of their way to asist in any way possible. Right from the start, once we booked we emailed asking for directions/advice on taxis etc, Response was really quick and in both french and english. Welcoming drinks on arrival was a nice touch (especially after travelling with 2 children in tow, it was pure luxury). Lots of great recommendations (camel rides which they arranged for us, les 3 portes restaurant, plus lots more).
Rooms not bad - sheets and towels were a bit tired looking, but adequate and clean.
Breakfast fantastic - freshly squeezed orange juice, followed by coffee/tea/hot chocolate, freshly made crepes followed by fresh bread, butter and jam.
Wi-fi good. We were on the 1st floor and able to use in our room, but much better downstairs (lots of room downstairs). Hot water ok. a little erratic, but manageable. We survived 4 days with 2 kids, so not a problem.
Roof top terrace nice to hang out and escape the crowds. Tables and chairs to sit at and have a cool refreshment.
Great location in a quiet alley way in the middle of the Medina (very central to everything). Pharmacy and place to get clothes washed around the corner. 5 min walk to the beach.
As other reviews have said, this is not a luxury Riad, but the staff are so fantastic, you are made to feel like you are the only ones there. So happy we decided to stay here and look forward to returning.
