This was our second visit to Riad Dar Najat, the riad has recently re-opened after a full refurbishment.
We were welcomed back like old friends, the staff are so friendly, it is one of the things we loved about our stay here last time. They all spoke English and the owner Olivier was a great host, he told us all the best places to go shopping and he even showed us around the medina.
The riad itself is a 10 minute walk away from the main Jemma el Fna square, it is in a perfect location, close enough to all the action but far away from all the noise. The souks are a few minutes walk away. We had the riad organise our airport transfer and the taxi got us to within a minutes walk from the riad.
Once you are in the riad, it is a haven of tranquility, it is so peaceful inside. It is a good contrast to the hussle and bussle of the medina. The rooms are tastefully decorated with African artwork, everything in the riad is kept spotless and our room was cleaned everyday. All of the rooms are en-suite and there was hot water whenever we needed it. Clean towels were provided and the beds were very comfortable with clean linen.
There is a lovely terrace at the top of the riad, it is like having your own private little space where you can just "chill out". There is also a nice large Jacuzzi that you can relax in after a hard days shopping.
The food at the riad is delicious, when you stay here, you have to have an evening meal, the food served is traditional Moroccan, I would recommend either the kefta tagine or the chicken tagine, both were cooked to perfection. The cost of the meal is very reasonable and it comes with a variety of vegatable starters, the main meal and a dessert. The riad also has an alcohol license which is nice if you just want to have a bottle of wine in the evening.
We loved our stay here and I would say this riad is suitable for all, whether you are a young couple or a family or a group of friends, the staff will take good care of you. When we were leaving, it felt like we were part of the family, all I can say is that we will definitely be coming back to stay at this riad sometime soon.
