We recently came back from spending 6 nights at Riad Carina and we could not be happier with the service we got. Everything, from the transfer from the airport, to the way we were received was just perfect. Entering the patio area for the first time made us both feel like we had just entered a new world.
The Sahara room was great, the bed was comfy and the bathroom was well appointed and the shower pressure was fine (the shower head could be set a little higher though!). The breakfast we ate every morning was also very good and well thought out. Another extra was the mint tea we got served whenever we wanted which we could enjoy up at the terrace, lying down on the chaise-longs from which you can watch the storks (they have a fascinating ‘welcome home’ ritual that’s worth seeing!).
We would strongly recommend this Riad for whoever wants to experience what living in an old Moroccan home must have felt like, while being about 10/15 walk from the main square and within walking distance of some of the major sights in an area that, in spite of being very lively, it never really felt unsafe, even at 3 o'clock in the morning!
Extra mention goes to the young man who looked after us for almost our entire stay: not only he did a wonderful job but, also, he was genuinely happy to help us out. Huge kudos to him and to the rest of the staff from Riad Carina. Keep it up, you’re doing everything right!
