Tucked away up a small alley off a busy street, VDO is a lovely boutique riad.
It's a Relais et Chateaux but this marque has we feel recently confused numbers with quality of entrants, as is the case here.
We had a lovely upstairs room on the triforium above the main quad of the hotel with our own room terrace and plunge pool. Views were lovely. Unfortunately we also had a plunge pool in the bathroom, in the cupboard under the basins it was flooded to about 6 inches deep.
The main pool in the hotel is more ornamental than recreational and too near the bar to appeal to the bashful.
The riad is ideally located for exploring the hotel on foot, about ten minutes stroll from the main square and souks.
Much more personal than La Mamonia down the road that's rather impersonal if architecturally more interesting.
