I'm reluctant to write thus review as I feel like I'm inviting people to go and stay in my home, that's how I felt when I left, but it would be wrong not to give this place the praise it deserves. We hired this place exclusively as we were a group of 15 celebrating a 30th birthday, and from start to finish the process was smooth. We booked though authentic luxury travel and our drivers (they brought two 8 seater vehicles) were there when we arrived at the airport with clear signs so we knew who they were. Hicham was so calming and charming and he was there to meet us also. Upon our arrival Ilham was there to meet us with Omar and gave us a tour of the property and a map of the local area, showing us where was good to visit. Between Ilham and Hicham we arranged and excursion to the mountains for our entire group, and she even arranged a spa visit for a few of us, which Omar escorted us to.
We were there for 3 nights and on the final night we had a party in the riad. Ilham arranged the entertainment, food and cake for us, all of which was fantastic!! We had a belly dancer, dakka and 2 more musicians throughout the night. The food was the best I had eaten since my arrival!
Abdul, who was with us all night every night was AMAZING. He went above and beyond the call of duty, going out to get us food late at night and making us mint tea at midnight.
The rooms were each individually decorated to a pretty high standard, the roof terrace was perfect for relaxing both day and night, the salon was spacious yet cosy (we had a log fire on every night) and the pool, although small, was enough to be a valued feature. I'm sure in the summer it would be enough to cool of. I truly consider the staff as friends now and would recommend to anyone.
