I have been back in NYC for several days, and pondering how best to write a review that will sum up my experience staying at this Riad. Words just are not enough, as much of what I experienced has to do with feelings and sense.
There are so many small things that truly made my stay one that I will never forget. As you can see from the website the rooms are very nice. They are also much more spacious than they actually appear. I stayed in the Leon Suite.
Upon arrival we were greeted with fresh mint tea, house made pastries and a quick conversation with our host letting us know a bit about where we were staying and were given a map.
Every day that followed was perfect. Each morning we ate our breakfast on the roof terrace (included in the fee) which was comprised of more delicious mint tea, tasty pastries, delicious yogurt, and fresh fruit all made at the Riad by the very talented chef. It was served by the very kind and charming Hassan each morning.
Hassan was also kind enough to show me around the souks, and teach me a few things about Morocco (including tips on how to use my new tagine that he helped me purchase).
Please note that each staff person was terrific, not just Hassan.
Our room was kept spotless. The robes in our room were very comfortable (I actually purchased one because I just couldn't part with it after wearing one during my stay). There was a rose bush outside our door which I stopped and smelled every time before entering our room. As someone that lives in the chaos of NYC, taking the time to smell a rose is not something I get to do every day. There are lovely flowers throughout the Riad.
The food they served at the Riad was some of the best that I had during my stay in Morocco. And, if you have time I highly suggest that you take one of the lessons offered by the chef-you will not regret it.
When we would return to the Riad after a long day of walking around we were greeted upon request with either wine or beer, and nuts that we would enjoy on the roof terrace while watching the sun go down.
Every single staff person at this wonderful place, is very kind, efficient, and truly make a person feel welcome.
I was somewhat nervous about traveling to Morocco as a woman but after only being in the city for a few hours I found that my concern was unnecessary.
Especially, due to the fact that I would return every day to such a wonderful and safe place.
I was truly sad when I had to leave this Riad that I called home for awhile and hope to return someday. -Saije
