I don't get some of the reviews I have read about this riad - it was wonderful. A perfect peaceful retreat, clean, pretty, lovely staff. On a clear day you can see the snowy Atlas from the roof terrace.
The terrace bar is only open in summer (unless it's ramadan), but you can take your own drinks or get a refreshing mint tea anytime. The spa pool would be wonderful in summer, even in March a treat for hot tired feet. Breakfast was good, as veggies it was appreciated to be able to use the kitchen to prepare our own food from time to time. Lots of nice fresh fruit, veg and bread from the local shops plus a pizza takeaway round the corner.
The staff took us to local hammams, sorting it all out for us and leaving me in very caring, kind hands - do take up this offer, for a woman it is the only way to see and take part in the social life of Moroccan women.
I also don't get remarks about 'not the best part of town'. Sorry, if you stay in the Medina, the Kasbah is the best part of town. We felt at home very quickly, being greeted in the street etc. There are some cheeky kids but they are just trying it on - a bit of humour and admiring their football skills are enough. A few sweets or pens will make you friends!
