We stayed in this marvellous riad for three nights. Firstly the accommodation was first class, immaculately clean, beautiful with excellent air conditioning, a must for July in Fez! The gardens were verdant and full of surprises; a chess board,orange peach and lime trees, water features, an amazingly refreshing pool and during the evenings the smell of jasmine was overwhelming. The riad is in walking distance of many of the attractions in the medina and the staff organised an excellent guide for us.
All the staff who looked after us during our stay were so kind,helpful and courteous. A special mention for Imane who made us feel very comfortable and who made our stay in Riad Alkantara memorable. Nothing was too much trouble for her, she spoke excellent English and was always available for advice. She is a real asset to the Riad! Thank you.
