Since my last visit in 2010, they've expanded the Riad. It's now twice as big, and there's a wider selection of rooms. The new rooms are all named after Moroccan cities, and represent their character. The best addition is a big restaurant on the terrace, where you have a wonderful view of Meknes (medina and ville nouvelle).
The owners live in the Riad, which is a good thing because it means they constantly check on the staff and are able to help with whatever request you might have. (for example, I am a picky eater and they made special arrangements to provide me with a vegan breakfast every morning.) I have to say though, that the breakfast is very good. It's definitely a rare thing to get a good breakfast in moroccan Riads, but Riad d'Or is an exception. If you stay few nights, they change it so you get a variety of different things, and they keep the food coming till you're done.
There's also a nice pool on the terrace which was so nice in the hot weather.
Still a great place, and my only reccommendation in Meknes.
