My family and I felt right at home in this lovely riad. Sure, the riad is beautiful, clean and comfortable with a wonderful location, but it's the staff that really make this place special.
Everyone, from the owner to the cleaning and kitchen staff go out of their way to make sure you are being looked after and are enjoying your stay. They really get to know their guests as individuals. We were warmly greeted every time we entered, all remembered what activities we had told them we had planned for that day, and were sure to ask us how we enjoyed them upon returning in the evening. In addition, my family have some dietary restrictions which caused us to leave some portions of our first meal uneaten. The kitchen staff noticed this, inquired about our restrictions and automatically adapted every other meal to our requirements with no further input from out side.
They were more than happy to make arrangements for us, such as finding a wonderful guide through the medina and arranging transport on to Casablanca for our flight out -- even down to packing a breakfast to go upon our ridiculously early (4:00am) departure from Fes, and having Omar meet us in the courtyard to be sure we were safely on our way. Much to my surprise, they were keeping track of when they expected us to arrive in Casablanca, and called our driver right as we were pulling into the airport to be sure all was well, then asked to speak to use so we could also verify everything was going fine.
We absolutely loved our stay, and recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Fes for any length of time. Enjoy!
