As all the reviews on Trip Advisor were SO good, I was a bit worried the riad was almost destined to fall short. On arrival, you are welcomed warmly and plenty of time is spent with you explaining where to go and answering any questions on the area. This Riad only has 12 rooms, and over the days we stayed it began to feel like home! The layout is great as there are plenty of places to have a relaxing mint tea whether it be on the terrace, in the lounge or on one of the other floors. The team there are brilliant; genuinely friendly and surpass themselves to go that extra mile for you. Small touches like fetching blankets so you can sit outside to watch sunsets at night when it's cooler, packed lunches, remembering how you like your eggs/tea in the morning are a welcoming change from chain hotels.
We also had the set dinner - wow. All i can say is I have never seen so much (yummy!) food in my life. It was great! The Moroccan salads were the best we had all holiday and the lamb was delicious. Breakfast was also plentiful and set you up for the day ahead- great home-made yoghurt and bread daily.
The location is also perfect. An easy stroll to the main square and really close to 3 of the main attractions. Bedrooms were spotless and lovely comfy pillows. Also liked the dressing gowns.
On the plane home, we overheard some other people discussing their stay in a 5 star hotel and they said the service they received was half hearted at best. Choose this riad and I can guarantee you will have the opposite experience- this riad and it's fabulous team made our holiday so special as they really did deliver wonderful service. I hope to go again soon!
