“Best place in Fez.”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

I loved my 5 day stay at Riad Tara. This is exactly what you need in Fez-- great staff, great location and a comfortable relaxing atmosphere. Price is unbeatable. Btissam and Fatiya were incredibly helpful. Riad Tara felt like home.

I was most impressed by how the owners (Jim and Catherine) and staff came to my rescue. Unfortunately, I had some horrible things happen during my stay at Fez (lost wallet, credit cards, ATM card and a fraudulent transaction involving one of the stores in the medina). They handled the situation in such a professional manner. I will always remember how you all took care of me.

Thank you so much and I hope to visit again soon.

We booked this riad based on other positive reviews and despite the excellent reviews, this place exceeded our expectations in every respect. Excellent rooms, decoration, ambience, service, location and food. Despite being inside the medina, it is very quiet and peaceful and was a welcome oasis from the chaos of the medina. The breakfast and dinners were absolutely divine, the best food so far in Morocco. One night we had a lamb and prune tagine and the other night, we had a chicken tagine with olives and preserved lemons. They preserved the lemons themselves. They also make their own jams for breakfast!! The kitchen is clean and the food was hot, so our preference was to eat at the riad. The staff, especially Btitssame, were so friendly and gracious and it was an absolute pleasure to spend three nights at their home.

Room Tip: We got an upgrade for no extra cost and the room was excellent, so cannot comment on our original ro...

Riad Tara is excellent value with nice rooms and great courtyard and rooftop terrace. Jim and the staff, especially Ibsisamar, are friendly and helpful, nothing too much trouble. The meals were great, food was amazing. Good location for access to shopping in medina and close to an access gate. We had a traditional hammam and massage on Jims recommendation, a must do experience.

The riad is located right at the heart of the Medina.. at first you may feel intimidated by the size of the Medina and its busy alleys but once you know how to navigate, it is centrally located. Access is easy to the market, to restaurants, to the palace, etc.

The hospitality is outstanding! Everyone welcomed and treated us with warmth (even Tara, the cat - the Riad is named after her). I had to leave the Riad to take a plane at 7 in the morning and found that a breakfast was ready at 5 am! Everyone was super dedicated to make sure we had a wonderful stay, and we did.

I am remiss that I did not write a review immediately. Jim & Katrina were the most gracious hosts and their home was comfortable and welcoming. Jim hooked us up with a cab driver, Faiyd) who brought us everywhere we wanted. A trip to the hot baths in Yaacoub Moulay Hot Springs was the best. This is where the locals go. Men only and very inexpensive. Faiyd was so inexpensive that I gave him a large tip., When walking home from the Medina in the evening we would always stop by and chat with the Tobac vender just on the right (small hole in the wall) as you start up the hill to Riad Tara. Great local conversation.

Room Tip: Owner should be in the house

Three of us stayed in this beautiful riad for two nights and had a wonderful time. The owners were very kind and hospitable and arranged for a guided tour of the old town. We also had a wonderful meal. The place is very difficult to find, even with a map and we needed to have someone meet us and guide us to the property.

The riad is perfect (location, owners, staff, cat, building, etc.). I highly recommend this riad. The rooms are very clean. The owner and the staff are very friendly and very helpful. A parking space is in the vicinity of the riad.
