Booking was actually a pleasure.. odd to say I know, but I build up quite a good rapport with Andrew, who was very helpful and understood my needs perfectly.
just to note this is a gay friendly Riad.
On arriving, at the airport (Please take a pen with you! you have to fill out a travel card and there are no pens, you WILL be in passport control for at least an hour!) our taxi was waiting, whisked us to the Medina where we were med by Abdu. A very charming host and extremely helpful. we were led through the busy, noisy maze of lanes to the Riad where as soon as the door closed and we entered the courtyard we were transported to a cool, peaceful, beautifully decorated oasis. I was amazed.
dinner was served on our first night and as it was my partners birthday they had prepared a very large birthday cake, all home made!
the decor and atmosphere is truly enchanting, photos don't do it justice. The views from the roof are amazing, do try and get up there for sunrise and sun set.
The staff booked various outings or booked tables at restaurants, and also walked us there when we didn't know the way (you will get lost in the Medina, is all part of the experience!)
