We arrived from the camel trek and had Bernard, the host himself waiting for us in the parking. He guided us the way to the Riad and when we reached, we were greeted with the mint tea and some snacks. He briefed us with the map and how to go around and also made sure that we are comfortable in our room. Breakfast was awesome and we were well taken care of. The hosts were incredibly great and they made sure that guests feel at home. In the morning Bernard showed us the way around to the Jemma El-Fenna. He accompanied us to the place, advised us on the fares and where to go about and what to see. We had our flight in the eve and before proceeding to the airport we wished to have some snacks in the Riad. They out performed and what we were presented was not snacks but complete meal starting from juice, salad, meal and desert. Not only this, they even packed cookies for our way back. Food prepared by Sofien and sisters is one of the best we had in our complete Morocco trip. Wouldn't have mind having all the meals in the riad itself given a chance. Great hospitality by the hosts.
Few things - We stayed in Chambre musc. Very little leg space on the two sides of the bed and also the rooms do not have locks. There is a locker where u can keep your valuables but the rest you leave it in your room which will not be locked in your absence. The shower area is very small, hence, the water spills all over the restroom when you take shower.
But the hospitality by Francoise and Bernard will force you to discount everything and you will love the place. Great location, just five minutes from the main square. Overall if you are looking for a place where you are not treated as visitors but as personal guests, then Riad Argan is the place.
