Everything about Riad Fès is a bit of a surprise. The car gets abandoned at the entrance to the Medina and you have to weave your way through the narrow, high-walled streets, wondering when you'll find the place at all. And then you see the R&C awning. A passageway leads you down to the real way in but you are still meandering inside until you make it to the reception, and beyond...the first of the interior courtyards, bedecked in Moroccan tiles, a gem from every aspect. Glance upwards and your eyes are stunned by the majesty of it all. And so it goes on as you explore the interconnected riads, each with its own distinct style, each fit for a King. You immediately appreciate the care and attention that has gone into creating this oasis of sheer style. The first class spa, pool area, wine bar and restaurant (wonderful breakfasts of whatever you wish) all deserve a mention. Extremely helpful staff add to the experience, and you are on the doorstep (well, just beyond it) of the fascinating Medina that dates back over a thousand years - a whole day trip (guide essential - the one recommended by the hotel was polite and friendly and knew his stuff, but didn't insist on bending our ears at every corner). I've been recommending Fez in general and the Riad Fès in particular ever since I got back. The place is a gem.
