Casablanca, Morocco179 contributions51 helpful votes
We were lucky enough for the Riad to open for us the day after lockdown finished in Morocco (we live in Casablanca). Jean-Claude, the owner, was super fast at responding and also following up once we arrived. The Riad is really beautiful, the rooms lovely and the location fantastic. We had a suite (Cannelle) plus a room for our son. The roof terrace is a great place for some wine and olives. But the highlight, as many other visitors have stated, are the on site host Simo and cook/chef, Rachida. The food is incredible (thanks Rachida!) and Simo is out of this world friendly (in a sincere and genuine way). We highly recommend staying here and hope to return one day. Also, the Medina, while crazy and an assault on the senses, is really a fantastic place to be - the people are lovely.

we stayed at Riad Laayoun for 4 nights and it was just incredible. we drank wine and ate Rashida's cooking and getting papampers by Muhamed and didn't want to leave. the staff is supper friendly and helpful. Jean Claude made us feel we were guests in his home. he surprised me on my birthday with cake and a song. The room was comfortable and clean.The rooftop was incredible with panoramic view of Fez. Thank you for making our Fez experience one we will never forget. till next time! Joumana and Daniel...

We stayed 2 wonderful nights at the Riad Laayoun in Fes. The room was fabulous, the rooftop view was incredible and the breakfast was great.. but by far the best thing about Riad Laayoun was the service. Simon gave the warmest welcome and the best help and tips for Fes (and the rest of Morocco) we could’ve asked for. Highly recommend staying with them!

We stayed in Riad Laayoun for 3 nights. This is one of the best place I have stayed in. Riad was comfortable and stylish. Hospitality provided by Jean- Claude and Simo was outstanding. They were both generous and warm.

We spent two nights only in this amazing riad nestled in a quiet but central street right into the Medina of Fez just a few steps from Place R'cif. Everything from accommodation to atmosphere and food was absolutely perfect, Jean-Claude warm but decrete welcome as well as Simon-Mohammed attentive care and assistance made our stay just unique! We would definitely recommend this Riad to stay in Fes and we do hope to visit again.
