I stayed here in March 2013 with my husband and our two friends. The Riad is beautiful and the staff very courteous and helpful. Oliver made us laugh and was always there if we needed him. We stayed in the Ghalia room which is small but adequate although the shower room is tiny and the shower sprayed everywhere (only the suites have a bath). There is a large window into the Riad, above the door, which let in a lot of light early in the morning. The lighting is very dim in the rooms and no good to read by or if you want to use the mirror. There is no plunge pool. It is more like a large decorative pool. Breakfast was very good and plentiful and available till 12 noon. Location is brilliant being easy to find and only 5 minutes from the main square (Jemaa-el-Fna) There is no bar as such but drinks are available on request. The A/C in the room cannot be controlled within the room. For dinner, go to Le Grand Cafe de la Poste, then try the cocktails on the top floor or for lunch, go to Kosybar just off Jemaa-el-Fna square.
