This hotel was a nice surprise because it had the personalized attention of a B&B with the quality of a luxury hotel. Spa and Hammam were very relaxing and the pool and "tent" were welcome additions to the retreat. The food was home-cooked and deliciously authentic.
The best part of this riad was the staff because I really felt like they catered to every one of our needs. We ate every meal here and I appreciated the way the cook was willing to share with me all of her details and secrets to dish preparation. I was impressed with how clean the hotel was kept, with people constantly working to take care of the hotel as well as the guests. I found the food and spa prices to be extremely fair (much lower than if we had stayed at a city hotel) and the service was so genuine. It is about 20 minutes from the Medina (with a free shuttle daily) and 40 minutes from the airport (again free shuttle with at least 2 nights stay). I highly recommend this place for a relaxing mini-break.
