We spent 4 days here at the end of May and had an excellent experience. Before we arrived Philippe was happy to answer all my queries and even telephoned me in Ireland to make further suggestions. We were met at the airport by a really nice driver who took us to the mosque nearest the riad where he handed us over directly to one of the charming staff and we were escorted on the 3 minute walk to this charming place. We were met by the Manager who arranged mint tea and nibbles and even though it was late, arranged to have a meal prepared for us. I think I can safely say that it was in fact the nicest meal we had thoughout our stay, and we had no complaints anywhere else. I recommend the chicken tagine, delicious. The room was just beside the pool, and the bed was extremely comfortable. Breakfast on the rooftop terrace was a great way to start the day and there was far too much to eat, with a fabulous array. We received great advice as to what to see and do and how best to take care of ourselves. A car was arranged to take us on a day trip, again with an extremely nice driver who was full of interesting cultural information. The staff were efficient but relaxed and friendly. My advice is to have at least one meal there and to take the airport transfers, particularly if this is your first visit. My only complaint was that the trip was too short. I'm looking forward to a return visit.
