We feel most fortunate that we chose to stay at this Riad. Prior to going, there was some communication with Michael which always gives an indication of what to expect. From being met at the airport expectations were exceeded and we immediately destressed.
We had prearranged lunch and it was served in the sunshine on the roof terrace, bliss!
Michel was our host, ably supported by David as Michael was away. These guys have thought of everything to make your stay as easy and enjoyable as possible.
Rooms are very comfortable too, with beds you never wanted to leave. Having a fire lit in the evening was a special touch, together with turndown, water in rooms, great wet room too.
We felt so at home that we ate dinner twice, superbly cooked by Abdel, such a gentleman. Breakfasts were just delicious with everything cooked fresh. We loved the Berber pancakes, but the variety and quantity of food could not be faulted. Afternoon tea was served on the terrace by smiling staff, nothing too much trouble.
There was always someone on hand to offer advice on where to go, or otherwise. Their wealth of local knowledge was invaluable.
We very quickly found our way around and with such a great location everywhere we wanted to go to was within walking distance. The souks were great fun with amicable bargaining and a few purchases.
The weather was unusually warm for this time of year, and coming from cold grey UK, was an added bonus.
We met some very interesting people during our stay, and all very happy they had chosen to stay here. We would heartily recommend this unique small hotel, but there are only five rooms so do not delay!
