“Wonderful riad and great hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

I spent 3 days in riad Tara, everything was perfect. Jim gave good advices to visit Maroc.
My friends and I stayed in amber room, it was very spacious and comfortable. After exploring the medina of Fes it was great to relax in the peaceful riad tara. Having breakfast on the terrace was an unique experience.

Stayed here for 3 nights in September - this is a great place to stay the riad is in a quiet cul de sac only 10 minutes walk from the center of the Medina. The riad is situated near the top of a hill and has fantastic panoramic views over the old city and surrounding area from the rooftop terrace. I had Jim the riad owner arranged a pickup from the airport which was great - the driver spoke English and I got a guided tour on my way to the old city. Jim also arranged for an official guide to show me around the Medina which I would recommend as she took me to a number of out of the way places which would be difficult to find on your own. The pace of life in Fes is slow and it people are extremely friendly - a great place to relax for a few days.

My family and I started in the family sapphire room for one night in august. The riad is inside the medina on the southern side. We were dropped off by car in a car park next to a pharmacy near the riad, and one of the staff met us there and showed us the way to the riad. The riad itself is really lovely, and there is a great view over fes from the roof terrace. We were warmly greeted by the owners jim and catherine, and jim walked with us to the main entrance into the medina centre so we would know the way. it takes around ten minutes. We had dinner at the riad that night and it was delicious! Rooms were very quiet and we slept well!

Had great stay at Riad Tara. The owner Jim is very friendly and helpful. Wonderful riad, fantastic rooms (with industrial airconditioning :-P) and we fell in love with Tara, the riad cat. We had a room on the top floor with an emperor size bed and shower, suitable for kings, queens and emperors. Beautifully decorated and just next to the panoramic roof terrace which has an amazing view over the city. Excellent!

Room Tip: Take the room with the heart shaped mirror!

Riad Tara is managed by a friendly French couple who make every effort to make you feel at home. The Riad itself is a beautiful three-storey house in the Fes Medina, with a large patio where you can keep fresh during hot afternoons. The rooms are large and nicely decorated. The kitchen staff prepare delicious breakfasts in the morning, and are always happy to offer refreshments at other times. The owners are very helpful in suggesting things to do and places to go. Overall, a great place to stay if you are going to Fes.

As we step through the front door we enter an oasis of calm and beauty. Our very romantic room is on the top floor and and was decorated in an enchanting Moroccan style. From the rooftop terrace we have a clear view of the city below. Each morning we enjoyed our delicious breakfast on the terrace while planning the rest of our day. One evening we had dinner at the Riad and were served a delicious tangine in the center courtyard on the ground floor. Our french host, Jim, was very helpful giving us directions and providing a map of the medina. Fes was a fascinating city and we're so glad we chose Riad Tara for our accomodations.

When our taxi driver couldn't get down the narrow streets, the owner, Jim came to meet us. He is French but speaks great English. The breakfasts were the best we had in Morocco and the bed was the biggest bed I have ever slept in. We had a room at the top of the riad. The bathroom is in the same room as the bed. They are not in separate rooms though there is a small partition to screen the toilet. Linen was crisp and fresh. From outside our room there was a roof terrace which we could see over the whole of Fez. We asked to have dinner at the riad and were provided with a delicious candlelit dinner that we couldn't finish. Food is bought fresh from the market, so you do need to ask in the morning. At first getting to the centre of the action is daunting with streets in every direction but after the first trial and error, it riad is an easy 5 minute walk to the centre. Can't rate this riad highly enough. We will be coming back here to stay. A map is provided to help with directions and places of interest. Perfect for all types of travellers. We stayed for 3 nights
