What a lovely place to stay in the medina. A very unassuming entrance that opens into some wonderful space. Despite the heat the riad offers a very cool space, with a long pool to the rear with loungers set amongst olive trees that catch the breeze "just so".
I really appreciated the free (soft drinks) minibar and laundry service, nice touches, and well set out with little private spaces and alcoves dotted throughout.
You do have a choice with rooms, we had the deluxe rooms (the cheapest) which were at ground level but, you know, I think they were the most authentic and nicest rooms in the whole place. I'd recommend rooms 10 and 11 as they are spacious, quiet and have pretty much their own private courtyard which is really fab. For minor reasons we had to move and were upgraded to upstairs rooms (8 and 9) with their own roof terrace and access to a rooftop pool. So ok, a private lounger but not as nice as beside the ground floor pool anyway and the rooms themselves were noticeably smaller so I'd suggest you think about saving the 400 MAD room rate unless you really, really need a rooftop terrace.
Service was perhaps not as spot on and attentive as some, but it was Ramadan and it was hot so I'm sure it improves outside of that time.
I do recommend this place!
