We spent two nights in the Riad in May with my 10 year old son. Quite an impression as you open the door of this little paradise. After a long and tiring road in the Atlas followed by a noisy and difficult approach of the Medina, the peaceful perception as you enter is impressive. It is so close to where the action (and the noise) is while being so quiet, spacious and peaceful. This is the first impression that strikes the visitor.
Second comes the beauty of the Riad. Not only its structure (patios, big rooms, "mystery" staircases which made my son's day, the wonderful rooftop,..) but the also decoration. Simply beautiful. Each room is different and worth spending time looking at the details. Excellent taste. Excellent confort.
Then comes the quality of the service. Nicolas and his team are discreet while perfectly efficient and constantly available (yes, it includes nights or early wake ups). Their warmth and joy make you feel totally at home (the lady taking care of the kitchen remembered me from a previous trip with another son five years earlier. She could perfectly describe my other son..!!). They are proactive and will offer solutions even before you have time to phrase your problem. And they will roll up their sleeves to help you solve personal issues which have nothing to do with the Riad. As an example, Nicolas helped me carry an enormous truck tire into the back seat of my truck. He had just taken a shower and he was good for a new one (without talking about his shirt and pants which came out "black"). Not an issue for him.
I will definitely come again with the rest of my family and will surely recommend it to my friends. Zero default.
