Wow - what a find. Upon arrival using the Riad's transfer service we were lead up a wide alley way (Derb) and were met by a nondescript door in a wall, looking like many other Riad's in the city. When the door was opened our first greeting was the incredible fragrance which set the mood for our stay. Even though we arrived early in the day, due to previous earlier check outs our rooms were ready within 10 mins of arrival. The owner provided complementary mint tea and Morroccan pastries to welcome us. We had booked 2 of the higher price rooms and they were superb, very comfy beds and pillows and good quality linen. The bathroom was good and the shower like a mini wet room. Complementary water for the room was also provided. They were very helpful with maps and directions and ideas on 'must sees'. The roof terrace was a lovely tranquil place to relax and recharge before a night time visit to the Jemaa-el-Fna and souks for haggling. The breakfast was sufficient, do not expect English or Continental, you are in Africa, so it was yogurt, crepes, eggs rolls/bread and jam with orange juice, coffee and tea. We had all decided to book a Hammam and massage 'in house' and following our early departure from the UK the owner recommended having the treatment late on the afternoon of our arrival day, the entire experience was amazing and this was the perfect thing to do before eating a traditional Morroccan meal cooked at the Riad. All of the staff that looked after us at the Riad were superb, friendly and very willing to help. I almost don't want to share as I don't want it to be fully booked when I return.
