My mom and I spent 1 week in Morocco. We spent half at Riad Laaroussa. (For the other half, we wished we were back at the riad). We stayed in the red room -- overlooking a lush courtyard. Each morning, we woke up to birdsong. The room was immaculate (and this is from 2 clean freaks). The riad itself is exquisite. Look into any hallway or nook, and it has been lovingly restored. There is no surface glamour here. The beauty runs through every beam, stair, and doorway. But what made this visit extraordinary were the owners (Fred and Cathy) and staff. This is not just a place to rest your head. It's a home. Comforts abound. When my mom chose to sit in the courtyard, the owner lit a fire nearby. Moments later, staff arrived with tea and cookies. This is a place that anticipates your needs (before you know them!). They even welcomed my mom in the kitchen -- where she giggled with staff. On the last day, the staff kindly packed us sandwiches for our journey to Marrakech. Riad Laaroussa is a tough act to follow! So either stay here last (on your trip) or ask the owner for riad recommendations in other cities. Thank you, Riad Laaroussa!
