“Peace, quiet, privacy and LOTS of Room”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2011

The Ryad Laarouss is best described as a private home with a traditional Riad layout. The first floor is a very calming environment - a sitting area and pool where you can enjoy meals. There was a separate room for watching DVD's but we never seemed to find the time.

The second floor had a second sitting room with a long couch and two chairs and a nice collection of music CD's. There were 3 floors and 3 bathrooms on the 2nd floor. We had plenty of room and the kids appreciated having their own bedrooms. We rented out the entire Riad (4 bedrooms) and it was wonderful to have the privacy. We were able to have a home-away-from home with help with cooking and cleaning. Rashida is a wonderful cook and I would definitely recommend at least one dinner at the Riad - for 150 dirham it's unbeatable. The house is very simply and beautifully decorated. The location is also perfect - a 10 to 15 minute walk to all of the major sites.

Rashida speaks some english and we speak no french or arabicso it was a bit challenging communicating. She tries so hard and is so friendly, we did manage and had a few laughs at ourselves.

As we arrived they asked to pay immediately (if you want to pay by card they ask you to add 4%.. incredible!), and only after that they told us that the room that we booked with booking.com was not available (they said it was not their problem but it was booking.com' s fault) and sent us to a worse and dirty structure near the riad. The day after they gave us our room but only at 16.00! We had to stroll around until that time. After half an hour we entered the room the electricity in our room broke so we had to go out and wait until 22 when the problem was finally fixed. The water in the room was cold and the heating broken. We asked for a refund and they gave us just 25€ (paid 86€ per night) and offered the taxi to the airport. When we got to the airport the taxi-driver asked us money since the personal of the Riad didn't pay him. Need something more? Just don't go there.

Sometime bad luck helping it could hapen few problems all in the same time on one guest. This was the case for Pessimo - Worst experience ever (4 January 2011).
- We got Huge electric problem inside the Riad and We regret so much this fact but how prevent this kind of problem ???
- Then Overbooking coming from mistaken handling inside our extranet. That is our fault. But our service refunds a part of money. About the taxi we confirm we paid the taxi ourselves.
But if you check on booking.com commentaries this case does not reflect at all the others fortunately.
