Our stay at Riad Laaroussa was one of the highlights of our visit to Morocco. Moroccan-born Frenchman Fred and his American wife Kathy have created a wonderful community within the walls of this beautifully restored Riad in the heart of the Medina.
This is the total accommodation package with every detail attended to: the rooms are beautiful, spacious and air-conditioned, the bathrooms huge for Morocco. The service is impeccable from the moment of arrival when Laarbi the porter meets you and guides you through the myriad streets of the Medina, to the entrance of the Riad where you are greeted by a smiling face, mint tea and scented towels. There is a beautiful rooftop terrace where meals are served and a private Hammam where you can experience a cleansing steam bath and a wonderful massage from Nezha.
My husband spent a day in the kitchen and at the market with Badiae the talented cook, who shared the secrets of Moroccan cuisine- no charge!
I was privileged to be invited to view the old family home of Abdul who had lived all his life in the Medina.
The real asset of this Riad is the staff who exude warmth and hospitality and are willing to share their smiles and their stories with those who are lucky enough to visit. Queen of them all is FZ, an inspiring woman who lifts the spirits by her very presence. We won't soon forget the vision of her and her colleagues spontaneously bursting into song and dance on the rooftop on our last night.
If you are travelling to Morocco, look no further then the Riad Laaroussa as the perfect base from which to explore this fascinating city.
