Not the most luxurious riad, but not the most expensive either.
Plus points - traditional Moroccan style & décor, EXCELLENT traditional dinners cooked by Zenab & served by(English-speaking) Abdulla, both of whom are friendly& welcoming, plus helpful French owners Jean-Marc & Chantal.
Minus points - it is NOT easy to find, even with a street plan & having negotiated our way through the maze of tiny alleys several times, we got lost! A few arrows with the name of the Riad would help.
Our shower water was unreliable, temperature-wise & due to the small screen sprayed water all over, soaking the bath mat. There was nowhere to hang it to dry - we had to ask for replacements as it wasn't changed daily.
As all the rooms look onto the courtyard (the main eating & relaxing area) they could be noisy, due to the TV, CD player, children running about or people chatting late into the night.
We were warned by the owner that the feral cats could be a nuisance, & the only time I used a lounger-bed on the roof terrace I gave up after 5 minutes because of the smell of cats' pee.
