I was a little unsure about my booking choice after reading some of the TA reviews below, but we only had good things to say about our stay and the staff.
Starting with the Riad itself and the rooms, it is easily the most modern, clean and practical riad of my stay in Morocco. You can tell it has the western touch (dvd room, beer fridge, clean towels/linen, nicely decorated) and small things are all thought about. The terrace is the winning feature, well set out and very inviting place to sit and waste away a few hours while listening to the chill out tunes and overlooking the rooftops of Chefchaouen.
Great location, very easy to find within the entrance of the medina and well signposted.
We had a couple of small hitches, the wifi was terrible on the first day, but fine the others, even when using skype and our hot water in our ensuite went out on our last morning meaning we had to line up for the communal showers, which doesn't bother me but we were leaving and hadn't left enough quite enough time to wait in line. Either way these were small things, which are not really fault of the owners- this is still a third world country and things are unpredictable, not to mention Joe was happy to get fixing it straight away! Fans in the room were a blessing!
Joe was so helpful with directions to get to Spain and we actually rerouted our entire departure based on his advice, which I think worked much better for us. We caught a grand taxi from Chefcahouen to Tangier to get a ferry instead of heading to Ceuta like initially planned.
To be fair to the owners, after reading negative reviews below I can only come to the conclusion that any personality clash may be stemmed from the fact that they have little tolerance for ignorant and obnoxious travelers. If you respect your surroundings, I am sure you will get along with them fine- like we did.
Look forward to staying in your next accommodation if you take on your next adventure in Cambodia some time in the future Joe!
