“unforgettably amazing experience”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

It doesn't get better than this. We are not used to luxury travelling, but this was such a great choice!
Our room was stunning and immaculately clean. Breakfast and dinner were truly impressive, too.
We felt very welcomed and contended. Every detail of our stay was amazing.
Jan and Rachid are great hosts and such kind and warm hearted people! Thank you so much for making us feel so comfortable.
We absolutely loved Sale, walking through the medina at sunset was truly magical. This is the real Morocco!!!

Jan has done a wonderful job in putting together a truly special riad in the heart of Sale. While we were skeptical to stay in Sale, it turned out to be a great decision. It's a great opportunity to explore an authentic Moroccan city. It was very safe and friendly. There is a good chance you'll be the only tourist in the whole city. This city was a true highlight of our trip. The service that Jan and her staff provided were second to none. We were greeted like royalty upon arrival and it didn't just stop there. The room we stayed in was the Mango room. It was beautifully decorated, quiet and spacious. We ate one meal at the Repose, cooked by Jan's husband. Always vegetarian, and amazing! And that's coming from my carnivorous husband. The are a lot of services offered at the Repose. Jan provided us with a booklet of recommendations in Sale and services she could book for you with the locals, such as henna, massage, etc.. She is big on supporting the locals and sharing the wealth, which is so awesome. Our stay in Sale at the Repose was a true highlight of our stay in Morocco. One we'll never forget.

Room Tip: Mango Room was perfect.

Jan and her crew run a wonderful place and take care of their gests. Rooms are great and very comfortable. The vegetarian cooking is delicious. We enjoy each moment of our stay at "The Repose" and we'll never forget how we were welcomed all along our stay. A marvellous place in which we'll come again.

Excellent personal service, good food, great rooms a real taste or Morocco. Jan and familiy are fantastic hosts. I would recommend staying to anyone.

However if you want a typical hotel with a tv in the room pool etc etc then this is not for you, but you will be missing out!

Room Tip: all rooms are excellent.

What an excellent place to relax after a long trip. We were welcomed most graciously with smiles, tea and cookies and later had a most delicious vegetarian dinner. Our room was beautiful, comfortable and harmonious. We enjoy every minute there.

As others so many others have said, Jan runs a great Riad. Morocco in general, especially the medinas can be a bit intimidating to the uninitiated. But Jan is there to help with arrangements advice, and pretty much taking care of guests and everything they may want. The Arabian Room, where we stayed was well appointed, well designed, and quite large.

Wonderful welcome by Jan when we stepped into the Riad after a long day of travel. Tea and snacks were offered as we sat in her "groovy" lounge area.

Each room is wonderfully designed with comfort in mind. Interesting paint colors and textures, pretty bedding to match and each room with it's own exotic feel (although all of Morocco is pretty exotic!).

Meals were wonderfully prepared. Jan only cooks vegetarian; however, in Morocco this is a plus. Plenty of fresh vegetables, couscous, etc.

Jan is a delightful host and certainly makes you feel welcome in her home.

The whole riad oozes Moroccan charm and each of the 4 suites has its own unique identity. The salon is ideal for dining in the cooler months, reading a book or playing games.
