My wife and I stayed at Dar El Assafir in the last week of February 2012, we loved it! This was our 2nd riad experience and this one totally outshined the previous...
I e-mailed a week before arriving, asking for a room with a quiet location. Well, that's exactly what we got! A room doesn't begin to describe the 3-bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment we got, the place was huge!
The whole layout of this riad is appealing: 2 courtyards (of which one had a plunge pool) end a nice roof terrace for enjoying a sunny February breakfast. The breakfast consisted of freshly baked msammen and another small roll, pieces of a baguette, jams, yoghurt and freshly squeezed OJ.
The staff were very friendly and in no way out to sell you excursions and whatnot.
No minusses at all? Hmm, the location is very good (a bit close to the Bab Doukkala mosque), on the edge of the medina. Our previous riad was smack in the middle of a local market street, which added to the atmosphere. But then that one didn't have parking right outside the door. Which means El Assafir is perfect if you have a rental car.
Cleaning maybe could be done more thoroughly, but it was done well enough for North African standards. The bed was a bit hard as well.
All in all we recommend this place heartily.
