My wife and I had a four night stay here last week. From the moment we got through airport customs we were catered for admirably by Nicola and his staff. The airport transfer was impeccable and when we were dropped off in the outer region of the City Nicola was there to great us and lead us through the maze of alleys to the Riad. I think we would still be looking now otherwise! Led through into the Riad itself well what a pleasant surprise indeed. This place is an oasis of calm and the attention of the staff make you feel like you are the only ones there at times. We ate that night on the roof and the lamb and prune tajine was great. So much so, I am afraid to say we ate here every night which is something we have never done before. It was worth it and each night we had a lovely three course meal with wine. It may have cost more than eating out but the food, the service and having the rooftop to ourselves made it special. It rained here for 2 of our 4 days and we did a lot of loafing about reading but it really recharged our batteries. For r and r you would struggle to beat it.it reminded me of a mix between the quietness of an old fashioned library and Raffles hotel in Singapore(not that we have ever stayed there). I could go on and on but shall conclude by saying that the owners of this Riad have certainly got the right people in place to make your stay a highly pleasant one indeed. The main square is a 10 min walk away through the souks and Nicola your host knows when to be there for you and when to leave you alone....a skill that is so often lacking in management. Well worthy of its high rating.
