We spent 4 days at Riad Akka in their 'best' room. The room was huge, huge bathroom and lovely bath (great to soak away tired muscles after walking for hours in the souks). Adiz (sorry, cant remamber spelling) was the local Moroccan night manager and breakfast server - he was lovely, good english, polite - he even went out shopping to get me some good quality saffron to take home. French lady owns the riad and anther french lady is the day manager -both lovely ladies who were more than happy to help with questions or restaurant recommendations. We had a lovely dinner in the riad on the last night which was great. The pool is fantastic for cooling off in after the 40 degree heat. Location is about a 5-10minute walk to the main square, but down a quiet alley, which meant our sleeps were very peaceful. For the price - this place is great value (only 4 rooms too!) - much cheaper than other riads, but nicer decor and great staff.
Cant wait to get back there!
