“The Good, The Better and The Best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2007

We stayed in Riad El Arsa for three nights and had a fantastic time. The staff were welcoming, friendly, professional and were always willing to go the extra mile for us.
El Arsa has everything that we were looking for in a riad: it is a beautiful gem in the heart of the medina and a sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of the souks, just a five minute walk away.
The central courtyard is stunning and complete with beautifully lit plunge pool along one side. Our room had a fabulous vaulted ceiling, and the bathroom was entirely finished in tadelakt plaster - so beautiful. The roof terrace is wonderful and an amazing place to have delicious meals from the kitchen downstairs, or to soak up the sun, or both!
I cannot understand why previous reviewers have had anything but the highest praise for this perfect place. We cannot recommend it more highly and will definitely return.

  • Liked — Friendly service, beautiful surroundings
  • Disliked — Short length of stay
  • Stayed February 2007, traveled on business
