Overall we really enjoyed our stay in the Riad. Centrally located which means you are in the middle of the maze of alleyways. This obviously creates its own challenges - the first day we struggled to find our way home, but there are always helpful locals to take you back for a fee.
The room was beautiful and authentic looking, very atmospheric which we were looking for however, I would recommend taking a torch because the lights are very muted and its hard to see in cupboards and wardrobes.
The pool isn't really big enough to swim in but am sure it's refreshing to have a dip in the summer heat.
The staff were super helpful, booked restaurants. They recommended places to eat but they were very touristy and expensive and the hammam they recommended again wasn't a traditional one. We very much paid a premium for it.
I was also disappointed by the trip they arranged. This was into the mountains, we were given a price for the driver for the day which we thought reasonable. What they didn't say was that we would need to separately pay the tour guide to take us up the mountain, and would be taken to several tourist stops where we were expected to buy their wares. They also didn't mention that sensible shoes were a 'must'. We had been under the impression that we were driving into the mountains however the road does run out and you have a rather hair raising scramble up the slippery rocks to see the views so the sandals and trainers we had, were at from ideal.
The only other thing that would have improved our trip is if they could have changed some of our larger notes for tipping. We struggled to break out cash out so regularly had to tip heavily because we had no change
Other than that, a really hospitable, well maintained and well located Riad....the less well oriented may be well advised to leave a trail of breadcrumbs the first time they venture out!!
