During our 2 week trip through Morocco, we spent 2 nights here in the Cream Suite after being upgraded from the Yellow Room. What a treat and how gracious of them! In the middle of the medina but very quiet. Our room was beautifully decorated with a fireplace. Our driver called to have us met at the gate and once we arrived, the fireplace was lit and the heat was turned on. Now, that is 5 star service. The person who walked us through the medina also had a luggage cart to help us carry the luggage.
Positives - free wifi but sometimes weak. Breakfast can be had anytime with crepes and french toast. The bathroom tends to be cold but there is a little heater in there. A hair dryer is provided in the room.
Negatives - the shower does not have a curtain so when you shower, the water tends to splash on the floor. The room where the toilet sits had a sewer smell. No eggs at breakfast.
We arranged for a half day walking tour through the Riad for 200 dh but somehow, unbeknownst to us, we ended up being on a full day tour (for 300 dh) without him mentioning this. We had to buy the guide lunch and he took us to 5 shops for shopping which was annoying. He also arranged a car and asked us to pay 200 dh at the end just for the car. We refused and had an argument. Although the tour guide was arranged by the Riad, we did not feel it was their fault but it really upset us. We did not even have time for photography after wasting an entire day with him. It is better to do a half day tour and explore the medina on your own afterwards.
Overall we had a great stay in this beautiful Riad. It was the biggest Riad we stayed in with a beautiful courtyard.
