I booked the Dar Limoun Amara based on trip advisor reviews and I have to say that I like it too.
We organised a taxi transfer from the airport with them which is probably a must as you would never find it if you tried to yourself. Everything worked well and we were taken from the airport and met a few hundred yards from the Riad itself by a couple of staff (names escape me).
After we had settled in they took us to the Jeema el fna so we could get our barings. It was about a 10 minute walk down quite a busy street which was easy enough to trace back and safe. We were also shown where to get currency and a good place to eat on the first night so all in all the service was excellent as time was given up to help us.
Its the first time that I have stayed in a Riad before so it was very different from accommodation that ive stayed in in the past. I understand that the Dar Limoun Amara is a typical Riad in the sense that the focal point is a open air courtyard in the middle of the Riad with the bedrooms around the courtyard over a couple of floors.
I had a twin room on the ground floor which is quite intimate with the courtyard. The room was basic, nice typical decor, en-suite bathroom with the most fantastic shower...not in its workings but the way it is. I cant desribe it.
The best addition to the room is the air conditioning unit which soon blasts out the cool air.
I think you do have to be a bit adaptable in these rooms if people stay up late chatting or get up for breakfast early you can hear it all. I reckon that that is the case in most Riads though due to their size and the location of the rooms though.
Breakfast is a mixture of pastries, cakes, tea, coffee and juice but as its served in the courtyard you are not always the only ones to eat it!!
There is a nice roof top terrace with seats and sun loungers and a makeshift pool which was good for relaxing.
There is free wifi but I didnt have my laptop. However they did let me use a laptop to check the internet which I thought was very good of them.
I booked this accommodation through Hotels.com who state payment can be made by card.....Its a cash only property.
