I visited Riad El Yacout a few weeks ago with a group of friends. The time we spent in Fes was exceptional. The city is magical and so full of life! The riad was beautiful, clean and customer service was out of this world. One employee stood out above the rest. Junior was kind, attentive and warm throughout our stay.... More

Situated down a narrow alley Riad El Yacout hides its Moroccan beauty from the eyes of the world. Stepping in through the entrance door the public areas are full of charm and tranquillity. Mint tea and Moroccan pasties are served as one checks in and the hosts are gracious and kind. We were given the choice of two rooms. Unfortunately... More

The swimming pool provided a lovely area to sit for drinks at night or breakfast with a choir of birds and beautiful bougainvillea. Our room was spacious and busy but beautiful with many Moroccan artefacts and rugs. We appreciated the attentive service (... More

If it's good enough for Bono, it's certainly out of this world! (Yes he stayed there, they have a tasteful little photo near the entryway.) The pictures do not do this wonderful riad justice, it is truly beautiful - it underwent years of restoration and the work truly shows. My boyfriend and I just finished a 12 day luxury private...

A pleasant location in the medina of fez. A marvelous door opens into a courtyard that is quite peaceful, a piece of heaven that we will never forget; we cannot wait to be back in this fabulous luxury riad. Upon our arrival we sat at a table in the courtyard drinking mint tea and eating Moroccan pastries. Our suite was... More

The riad is just magnificent. the atrium is so spacious and beautiful and so are the rooms. The staff is very attentive and speaks fluent english which is a bit difficult to find in Morocco. The restaurant offers a wide variety of Moroccan dishes... the pastille and chicken tajine are a must. I enjoyed it very much and hope to... More
