The Riad is located in the medina not reached by car and 20 minuts far from the Jemaa el Fna place. It is very beautiful and well kept. The staff is amazing and really nice in everything, they helped us in all the info and requests we had. They have a spa and a swimming pool, in

Great interesting and quirky Riad. A bit off the beaten track and only accessible by walking about 5 minutes from the main road but just a fantastic place. I cannot praise the staff enough especially Mohammad and Micheal, both these guys looked after us. We booked trips through

Is the car park safe
Hi there. We came by taxi from the airport so didn’t need to know anything about car parking- sorry! The riad is in the Medina though so you have to walk to it via a few alleyways. Our taxi driver dropped us off and someone from the Riad came out to show us the way. ( It is easy enough to find once you’ve done it a couple of times and got your bearings, and felt safe to do so. Local people were also very helpful if we needed directions at any time). Not sure if the Riad has any dedicated parking spots in the nearby square? Perhaps best to check it out directly with the Riad itself. Rgds Eborlondon.

Max 30min, 5 of which is walking the lanes as cars cannot get right to it. Book a driver with the Raid or you may not find it but if you deal with other taxi drivers during your stay, you'll get one to bring you back to the airport for third of the price.

There was no hairdryer in our room but there were toiletries which were adequate. We enjoyed the riad and the staff were always helpful. We arranged transfers with the riad but on the return journey the taxi driver could not find the riad so we were nearly late for the flight. It is easy to find your way around the medina by the riad but the souks can be difficult with so many small streets and no names. Be careful, there are always people who appear to be helpful but only want money. They come up to you and try and take over wanting to show various craft workshops but only for money, We got fed up with it over the course of a week I have never used so many words ending in "off".

"lower level rooms don't get quite so hot in the afternoon..."
"Try another Riad"
"Avoid the rooms in the 2nd courtyard, where you have to go UP 3 flights of stairs and then back down to your room."
"The Ground Floor we were in was Gorgeous ( Not sure about the other rooms) And we had a pet tortoise outside our room in the garden area."
"all wonderfull"
