We stayed here for 6 nights and it was a great experience. We have stayed in a few riads in Morocco and this is probably the most tranquil and homely. The riad is a small beautiful building and feels more like staying in a private home than a hotel. Not only was the riad beautiful and a tranquil haven from the hustle and bustle outside, but all the people working there were very friendly and really seemed to make an effort to make our stay pleasant! The riad is located in a very central and good location for exploring the souks and the main attractions in the medina. Nearby you will also find lots of restaurants suchas "La Perle d'Asilah" which are great options for lunch or dinner. They paid attention to detail, breakfasts were incredible fresh and delicious, and there was even a bookcradle of (good) books to borrow while we were there. Everything seemed very clean and cared for and what's more, very warm and comfortable, it has a nice roof terrace with a great seavieuw, beautifully lit in the evenings. The best thing however, is definately the food! We had our best lunch and dinner at Dar Azaouia, everything homemade, fresh moroccan bread with starters and dips from any meditaranean country, after huge tajines with the most fresh fish I've ever eaten. I still taste the salty sea watering in my mouth. The poched fish with wild mushrooms is recommended. The desserts are original and the love and care in the kitchen drips from the plates. Well-done for the chef! If I go to Asilah again, I would definitely come back to Dar Azaouia.
