My two daughters and I spent several delightful days at this exceptional Riad. It was a perfect retreat from the heat , noise and of course, fun of the medina. The staff were gacious and kind and the room ( Jasmine) was perfect for the three of us. The bathroom was spacious and elegant and squeeky clean. The air conditioning was a joy in July and provided a relaxed night's sleep, which encouraged us to get up , enjoy a delicious breakfast in the courtyard and then head off for a day of adventure. At the end of our stay, we were dying to explore more of Morocco .The staff introduced us to "Mr.Mohamed " He devised a splendid round trip tour for us, over the High Atlas mountains , out to the desert , down through the south and up the Atlantic coast. We had the time of our lives! We can't wait to come back!
My only piece of advice to other guests, would be to order a meal in the Riad on the evening that you arrive. We ventured out into the Ja El Fna to eat .Trying to find our way back home again through the back streets that night was stressful....save that experience for daylight hours!
That being said, whenever I feel stressed in my daily life, I will visualise myself back in the candle-lit courtyard of the Riad Ariah, sipping mint tea and dipping my toes in the pool..... bliss!
