We arrived after a 4 day tour and an emotional farewell with our guide; the manager, Haj, immediately upset our youngest son by belittling him for his attachment to our Berber friend...what a rascist! We were pressurised into a very expensive meal and once it became apparent that we weren't going to spend out on meals and hammam at the riad we were ignored, treated to further rascist remarks and nearly ripped off for 2k dirham! Haj arranged a fake guide who shlepped up around the Medina in figures-of-8 and too many shops; the cleaners actually fought on two separate occasions; the showers were tepid and the air con in the boys' room was broken (although miraculously fixed for 2 rich Italian ladies once they'd cleared the kids out)...suffice to say the place is very beautiful, what luxury like this comes at a price I'm not willing to pay again. We felt trapped, unwelcome and swindled, Haj ought to be thoroughly ashamed of himself, as, thanks to him and his crappy mate Abdul, we will not be returning to Fez and will warn our friends what an unfriendly place this is.
