Ok, where do I start, the lack of English probably with only two people in the Riad - one who could speak enough to get by. And the other couldn't speak a word of English at all.
The location is off a side street. Cars can't get there so you have to walk past very loud and aggressive locals who look threatening and always harass you.
Secondly we weren't told anything about the rooftop part of the riad which was the main reason I booked it.
The hotel staff didn't help with the harassment as they tried to charge for everything even though I paid inclusive.
If you want a relaxing trip - with no hassle then stay in a 5* hotel not a Riad. I love culture but not this particularly located riad. Don't think I would ever return to morocco and if I do I will stay in an English hotel.
Also breakfast was terrible it was just bread and butter or jam. When asked for more flatbread - I was refused it. Which I don't understand. Then on our final morning there, they refused to give us breakfast even though it was paid for.
Definitely ruined my view of Morocco.
