I stayed in the riad just five days ago and I found it terrible.
I stayed in other places in morocco for €20/30 and I had my own bathroom and breakfast in the morning. I decided to splash out on my last night in Morocco and stay in a really fancy place. Big mistake.
For €150 I was told that I was getting a half day tour of the city, transfer to and from the airport and breakfast. The place was advertised as having a pool and a hamman. All lies.
The pool and hamman are not even build yet. The tour- which lasted one hour went from one shop to another even though I had told the guide at the beginning that I was not interested in buying anything. Plus I had to keep reminding them about my taxi to the airport which came so late I almost missed my flight.
However this wasn't the worst of it. I was travelling as a single woman and the hotel seemed horrified by this and looked at me like I was a parasite when I arrived. Let me explain that I look Moroccan and I was covered from neck to ankle, wearing a hair scarf so it wasn't like I was scanty clad. Hence the atmosphere was very hostile especially when you consider the fact you are paying to be treated like a piece of dirt.
No where else in Morocco did I have such an experience and all I can say is if you a girl on your own don't go!
