My wife, daughter, and I just had a very brief two night stay at the Dar El Menia. Like others have said, Graham and his staff are excellent.
There were three of us traveling, so Graham put us up in their triple room. It was very large, with a balcony overlooking the central courtyard. The bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was very well furnished. And everything, I mean everything, was spotlessly clean.
Graham has an excellent assistant named Jamal, who helped us arrange train travel, find a taxi, and was just a great extension as a co-host. We had a marvelous breakfast on the rooftop terrace.
My best memory of the trip: after a hectic day shopping, to open the door to the riad and find candles burning softly in antique lanterns in the courtyard. It was just an "ahhhhhhh" kind of moment, and exactly what I needed.
Oh, and they have wi-fi!
