This is a coverted Judge's riad whose unprepossessing front entrance stands amidst garages and hardware emporia. A short walk down the passageway brings you to a quiet Paradise. You are greeted by charming and solicitous staff who are professional to the fingertips. The peaceful beautifully fountained courtyards lend themselves to fabulous photographs. The bedroom (number 16) is beautiful if only underlit; the bathroom is well planned with all the acoutrements expected of a luxury setting. A visit to the rooftop terrace with its own pool gives a view around that part of town which is not in itself fabulous. The main pool is in a beautiful large courtyard setting with an outdoor but gazeboed dining area on the other side of shrubbery; the lunches are not too heavy and seemed entirely appropriate. There is faint street noise but nothing distracting. The occasional percussive clacking is from the nesting stalks on a nearby tower! The dining and lounge facilities were sumptuous with much welcome open olive wood fires as there was a February chill. The breakfasts and dinners were excellent; we ate in on 2 of the 3 nights.
