We have just returned from this riad, having hired the entire place for my 50th birthday party. My family and friends, a group of 25 people ranging in ages from 12 to 72 years, were all unanimous in their agreement - the staff, amenities and location of Les Jardins de Mouassine, are second to none.
Transfer from the airport to the riad was expertly handled and when we arrived on Thursday morning, jaded from our journey, we were personally greeted by the staff at the front door and refreshed with mint tea and pastries. David, Mohamed and Imad organised every detail of my birthday party on Saturday night, which included a wonderful Morrocan banquet, musicians and belly dancers, with the utmost care and attention which resulted in a truly memorable evening for all. The atmosphere created was sensational, with the wonderful ladies in the kitchen further delighting us by joining in with the celebration. I cannot thank of all these lovely people enough for making our four day stay an utterly unique and wonderful experience.
If you are looking for a place to stay that will give you personal attention with a capital P, then this is it.
The riad staff arranged everything for us. Some of our party chose to horse ride, others visited the Atlas Mountains. Massages, facials and mud wraps were all had in the riad (with my children particularly enjoying the jaccuzzi after a long day at the souks). Some chose to stay in and made full use of the wonderful homecooked food provided by the kitchen, lunches and suppers being taken variously under the stars on the terrace or, on the atmospheric patio. Bookings were made for us at various restaurants in the citiy, taxis arranged and advice freely given. Breakfast was plentiful and the freshly squeezed orange juice, delicious fruit salad, cakes and pastries, along with bread and cheese, a scrumptious start to the day. Fresh towels were provided daily and the entire riad was impeccably clean throughout.
All in all, a wonderful gem of a find in a bustling city. Do not hesitate to book; my husband and I are going back in October for a romantic long weekend to take in all the sites we didn't manage to see. Others in my party have already booked!
