After being picked up from the airport and arriving late to the riad, the staff were extremely helpful and also provided us with our first taste of Morocco. The riad was completely tranquil and I was amazed when I realised that we were only a couple of minutes walk from the main square – which was easy to find.
The food was fantastic with breakfast being a great way to start the day. While after the 40 degree heat, dinner served in the coolness of the courtyard was perfect – with the riad serving the best tangine I had tasted. To top it off, if you just wanted to relax the roof terrace was perfect for a little sunbathing or just relaxing in the evening.
The rooms was spacious and while the temperature was hitting 40 degrees everyday while we were there, we still didn’t need to use the fan, as the room managed to remain cool. The staff were fantastic with nothing being too much hassle.
A lovely riad, topped off by exception staff and food.
