We stayed at Riad Laaroussa for 3 nights during our 19 days of travel in Morocco. By the time we arrived, we had stayed at a few other properties. We enjoyed the rooftop view and the lab, Bob. We missed our dog at home and having him curl up next to our feet while we were on the roof was sweet. But, Fred and his wonderful staff of primarily women, is what made us really like this place! One afternoon, the women made lamb chops and chips for the three of us and it was one of my husband's favorite food memories during our Moroccan journey. And, although Fred meets people from all over the world everyday, he takes time to have a conversation with most of his guests. He talked with us and I saw him in the mornings conversing with other guests. We were impressed he had a passion for meeting and talking with visitors, after so many years of running a riad.
We stayed in the Green Room and it's traditional and lovely, the way one would image a room in a riad in Fez to have been 500 years ago. We had a fireplace, spacious bathroom, and beautiful original tiles throughout the room.
Again, we really enjoyed the women who work here. They were fun to talk to and do a fantastic job of looking after everyone!
