A lovely place, with lovely people!
We needed some good and quite holidays with my friend, and we had them! Well if you are in the same mood, that's the place to go. A bit off the tracks from the busy crowed, you will be considered as a special guest, from the whole team! A special arrival, where Véronique will start to take care of you, and during the whole stay, by giving all the usefull tricks and tips to get around the city (the must do, day trips, security, advices and so on) all the details you need to feel home and comfy! A special thanks to Abdellatif & Jamila for the super breakfast on the terrace!

The room was very cosy, elegant and modern, cleaned every day (daily changed towels), safety box etc....

The terrace was just lovely, with a incredible landscape over the mountains and the palm grove.... in spite of the temperature, we managed to have a nap on the deckchair, next to the hot tub.

Hope to come back sometimes!

Photos must have been professionally taken when the hotel first opened as the terrace is quite mouldy, with loungers and seats you would not want to lay or sit on.

The owner does not treat this as professional accommodation; we had to frequently exchange notes as she was never around in the five days we stayed. Just checking out and paying was an effort as she did not want to be at the Riad during the three different times we gave her. She kept insisting we needed to be there to pay during the times convenient to her. Considering all of this I would hardly consider this a 24 hour reception.

We also found out the day before we were leaving (via one of her notes), she wanted the full five days paid in cash. When we refused to carry around that much money, she then wanted half paid in cash. When we refused again, she wanted to charge 5% surcharge for a credit card transaction which is not mentioned on the booking anywhere.

Additionally we had problems with the light in our room and had to have the bulb changed daily. Also you must ask for clean towels if you want them.

On the only plus side the young guy who takes care of the guests and serves breakfast is really lovely, sweet and very helpful. We wish him all the best and hope one day he can find a job at a real Riad.
