Don't be deceived by the small door. It opens to a beautiful courtyard where you will have your breakfast. I guess it applies to all the beautiful riad in Morocco! The Moorish architecture truly blew me away.
Kasem, the manager, met us and our guide at the parking lot to assist us with the luggage. A very friendly and helpful person. We were treated with Moroccan sweets and mint tea. He explained that we could order our dinner in advance. I wished I wasn't so full so that I could have dinner at the riad.
When he brought us to our room, I was amazed by how huge the room was. It could comfortably fit a family of 4 - a queen sized bed, a single bed and sofa bed. My favourite spot has to be by the window overlooking the courtyard. Simply therapeutic. The room across ours was larger with their own private balcony.
Breakfast served was made for a queen I am sure. Everything was delicious especially the baghrir and spicy Moroccan crepes. And I love the pistachio yoghurt!
Fathia one of the staff who served us at breakfast. She was such a joy to be with. Always smiling, giggling and even though my Arabic was preschool level, she tried to engage a conversation with me.
I had a wonderful stay here in Riad Ahlam. Ahlam means dreams in Arabic, and I definitely had wonderful sleep with sweet dreams here. Highly recommended!
