Just back from a fabulous magic carpet ride through Morocco. We did quite a bit of traveling around the country and our riads were an important part of our overall enjoyment of the cities we visited.
Our 3 night stay at Riad Laaroussa was over and above anything we expected. There are many other reviews here on TA singing the praises of the beauty and comfort of the riad itself, the wonderful food, excellent location, the perfect views, fabulous terrace, and especially, the warmth and hospitality extended by owners Cathy and Fred, and the entire RL staff. I'll join in that chorus and sing back-up harmony. We simply loved it there.
I was having a little tummy trouble (having just arrived from Chefchaoun and some dubious roadside cafe dining) one night. My husband sought out Fred who immediately leapt to the rescue with very helpful advice and actions. Soon the lovely Fatima Zohra (also known as FZ) delivered a tagine platter filled with steaming freshly prepared rice and a side of two bananas to my bedside, along with a warm embrace and tender well wishes. (Rice is not typically served in most Moroccan dishes and the staff went out to the market just to buy it for me.) This was exactly what I needed, along with a good night's sleep. I woke feeling 100% better and ready to continue exploring Fes. What could have been a very low point in our travels is now a sweet memory and one we'll never forget.
If you're planning to visit this beautiful and astonishing city, enhance your stay by making Riad Laaroussa your home base. You simply can't do better!
