This ryad was booked for us by the travel company that we engaged for a 15 day tour. Being aware that 5 star hotels by American standards seem rare in Morocco, this was described as one of the best Chefchaouen had to offer. Maybe it is, but it was certainly not our finest stay in Morocco, well below other hotels that could be considered even a 3 star and not what you would expect when the word "spa" is used in conjunction with a hotel. The room was not very clean and one might consider wearing protective sandals in the shower. This property reminded me of a hostel. The location is great. That's about it.
My family and I absolutely loved Lina Ryad! We stayed in three cities (Marrakech, Fes, and Chefchaouen) and this was our favorite riad. The service was just excellent: the two young ladies at the front desk were constantly working to make their customers' stays more comfortable, providing refreshments and booking services and answering questions. My mother has limited mobility, and they were so accommodating in finding a place for her to charge her scooter on the lobby level. (Please note, there are steps leading up to the lobby level, however, and someone with mobility challenges may not find any riad to be the most accessible.) One night, we were too tired to go out to eat, so they assisted us in ordering in from one of the restaurants nearby, even delivering the meal and…
We spent our first night in Morocco at this charming Riad in Chefchaouen the blue city. Our room was in the front portion that had interiors openings to the atrium above the reception. There was a TV in the room but we couldn’t get it to work. We had both a dinner and breakfast in the main lobby area and the service was very good. The only downside was the noise from the lobby in our room. Asking for a room in the rear of the Riad may be a bit quieter.
The riad was quite lovely. Breakfast was freshly made and tasty. The eggs were prepared the way we like them. We had the haman body scrub. This was our first so I can’t rate it but it was very nice. Would do again. We were on the third floor with no elevator so we got good exercise. The room was nice, the showery was good (no bath tub) and WiFi was good. My one complaint was there was power outage both nights we were there but they only lasted for an hour or two. Survivable. Bring a bathing suit as the pool is heated. By appointment only so it was private.
I found this hotel last minute, while on our drive to Chechaouen. This place in nestled on the hill, you do have to walk about 5 mins up. But completely worth every step. The staff was so wonderful and helpful, and the hotel and rooms are absolutely stunning. Make sure you get a Moroccan Hammam before you leave!!
