This was our first trip to Morocco and we were not disappointed. We arrived at night and were dropped off by the airport minibus and lead down a narrow alley by the rep, we were a bit unsure what to expect, dark ,narrow alleys & scooters racing around.
Don't be worried what a jem. Once inside the Riad there was a warm welcome from the managers, a lovely couple who showed us to our rooms, which were clean and very comfortable. We were advised that if we went out that night we'd probably get lost as it was so late, so we took the advice and stayed in the Riad.
Next morning around 5am the prayer alarm go's off from the neighbouring Mosque :-):-) bit of a shock but soon went back to sleep we had breakfast on the roof terrace in the morning sun, which was great as was the food all freshly cooked and delicious.
The advice we were given about getting lost come true ,we like going off the beaten track and did get lost but enjoyed finding our way back though all the alleys after an hour or two :-D:-D.
If you want a clean, comfortable, Riad full of culture and delicious fresh home cooked food this Riad won't disappoint.
You have to have at least one evening meal, Iman's cooking is amazng.
We will be planning our next trip around the availability of rooms at this Riad.
Just one last thing french, is their first language but the manager does speak some english and was very helpful.
