You walk through a busy market area of the medina, avoiding the crowds, admiring the fresh bakery, watching the cats awaiting something to fall at the butchers and turn into a narrow alley where the local boys are playing soccer and you find a solid brown door with a substantial brass knocker. It opens and you are in a private world of tile, carved plaster, luxurious fabrics and crystal chandeliers, with a private hammam and swimming pool. We stayed in Senior Suite Yacout- STAY IN SENIOR SUITE YACOUT! there is a living room with a fireplace and two day beds, a king size bed with beautiful fabrics and a dome over the bed which is decorated with carved plaster. When you arrive there are rose petals EVERYWHERE (even on the toilet seat cover). The hotel is infused with jasmine scent. The breakfasts feature eggs, cereal, several kinds of bakery, fresh squeezed OJ, homemade yogurt and fruit. You can have them on the rooftop terrace with a view of the Atlas Mountains. Dinners are Marocain. Some of the best lamb we had in 16 days.
After a long hard day of bargaining you can have fresh squeezed OJ sent to your room. Imagine, it's 5 pm and you're hot and tired and just want a little rest before dinner and fresh squeezed OJ magically appears at your room door.
Free WIFI through the riad. Doesn't quite get to the terrace. Customer service is spot on. Best place we stayed in Morocco.
