This riad is perfect!
I booked dar fakir exclusively for 14 of us to celebrate my 30th birthday and explore a new places and the building and it's staff helped with our whole experience, I'd love to return one day....... with some HP sauce and cheese for Kirsten the very helpful (and patient) manager!
Pictures don't do this riad justice, its so much more than I expected and I've been looking at the website for a year! Even the smell as you enter is inviting.
We were met by Kirsten who told us about the local area over a glass of mint tea and was so welcoming we got a bit comfortable and nearly cleaned her out if beers!
The staff, especially Hannah were amazing and produced anything food and drink related we asked for with a smile.
We had dinner in the riad on our first night and it was lovely, no one left a thing!
All our trips out and about were sorted by Kirsten almost without us doing anything and we enjoyed all we did.... including our shopping and bartaring which we had advise for too!
Thank you all for making the start of my old age fantastic!
