The staff and owners were very gracious and welcoming. Immediately upon arrival, we were greeted with mint tea and sympathetic ears to an unfortunate incident we had in Rabat. They even upgraded us to a room with a terrace. The rooms are clean and come with a heater. There was also a safe, though I never could get it to work. The courtyard really showcased the intricate-ness and details that took 2 years to renovate. The staff were attentive and helpful, giving advice on how to explore the medina. Its location is a few minutes walk from the Bab Bou Jeloud, outside the medina.
The cons are, the riad was located down at the end of a long dead end alley, with 2 security guards stationed outside the door, which makes you wonder why those are even necessary.
We also had dinner one night there but be aware that the dinner is quite expensive per person - sure the ambience in the courtyard is incredible but it was much more expensive than even a dinner at Cafe de la Poste in Marrakech, a high end French restaurant. I guess we were broadsided by how much it costs, though maybe it was our fault for not asking. We just didn't think it would be that much. Also, lastly, there was a breakdown in communication. we had an arranged private driver through a 3rd party agency to drive us to Merzouga on checkout, who had actually come by the riad twice days prior and even called to let us know of an earlier departure time for that day. This message was never passed onto us. The driver said it may have been intentional because they would have rather had their own hired driver take us.
