In terms of this Riad there is very little to fault it. It is stylish and elegant without being pretentious and the staff and service is impecible yet unobtrusive.
We stayed in the Amal suite that has the most amazing bathroom and a really decent size room, although if I was returning with my partner I would definately splash out on the Lile bridal suite (which is just amazing!)
The roof top tarrace has a beautiful panoramic view of the city and the Atlas Mountains and the plunge pool, although small, is a really nice (and very welcomed) touch.
We ate here two nights on our stay and the food was really very good. In fact it was much better and far more reasonable than the places that we ate out on (all of which were supposed 'top notch' in terms of food and cooking). We ate on the room terrace which was relaxed and comfortable.
The only real downside to this riad is if the other guest are inconsiderate it really will impact on your stay. Our last night was totally ruined by the other to sets of guests coming back very late with non-guests, playing music extremely loudly, shouting and singing and generally being louts. Although a member of staff was on sight (non managerial) the problem was not nipped in the bud and I had to deal with this problem after nearly an hour of Lady Gaga and rattling about as they helped themselves to the kitchen. As all rooms overlook the courtyard there was no way to avoid being impacted by this noise and as we had to be up for a flight a 6.00 am we were less than impressed.
However, this is as a result of very poorly mannered guests and is probably not a regular occurance. All in all a wonderful place but I would recommend the management consider how the riad is managed in the evenings
