Difficult to find, overpriced food. One night we ordered dinner for 3 and then told Aziz we were expecting friends to visit and asked for another 2 meals to be added, what we got was our initial order for 3 in the price of 5 with some extra starters. Furthermore Aziz didn't hesitate to ask me for cigarettes whenever he saw me. The cherry on top of the cake was on our last night Aziz asked us to pay for the accommodation, and we didn't have enough cash at that moment and he didn't accept cards, he couldn't wait for next morning, and forced us to take a taxi to the nearest bank to withdraw cash. As it was difficult for taxis to find the hotel, Aziz ordered a taxi for us for the value of 100 Dirahms (Overpriced by at least 3x) the most tragic event of the whole story was that we saw the taxi driver giving Aziz 80Dirahams in hand.
The only positive action of the Riad was the recommendation of Mustafa as a guide. He was very helpful and had great knowledge of the towns history except from the berber's rugs. Overall a worthily 600Dirahms for a one day guide.
