I have just returned home after spending 10 days at this Riad with my son and daughter(i am 80 years of age) and felt it a requirement to join Tripadvisor inorder to express my sincere thanks to the entire Miski team who made the holiday rather magical.
Our room was spacious,clean,high ceilings made it light and airy plus the air con worked perfectly which was required as we were experiencing a heatwave.The bathroom was furnished beautifully with a copper sink,big towels and plenty of them.The riad as previously mentioned is a see of tranquility,you quite literally walk from the hustle and bustle into this different world which is calm,quiet and quite intoxicating.
We had several meals prepared by the lovely chef Raja and what a cook-superb.We had lighter options from the menu as well as her famous tagine and were never dissapointed.Breakfast was freshly prepared daily and always different,plenty to go round and if you wanted more you could have it.
Christine is a warm and charming lady,very helpful ,calming and accomodating.On arrival we were given a very informative and useful guide of what to do/where to go with the use of a map-Christine highlighted all the places of interest and gave clear and consise instruction wich we followed and managed well.Christine offers different packages including trips to the Atlas Mountains which can be combined with massage,dinner etc however these can be tailor made to suit your needs and requirements and more importantly they are not pushy,no hard sell here.Her husband Francis has the magical hands of a true masseur coupled with wit and charm,they are terrific hosts.
Sadly, i have read recent reviews which are irrelevant and picky,i wonder if they were actually staying at the same place,and yes there is shade on the roof terrace.
You need to stay at Miski to understand the way it makes you feel and the impression it leaves coupled with the fact that it is perfectly positioned to walk almost everywhere and if you need a taxi that will be arranged,trust me,nothing is too much trouble.
Yousef the young Moroccan man who runs the place on a daily basis who has the local knowledge in abundance and always reliable,he advised different restaurants which were super and anything else we required.We found him to be a genuine young man who appreciated his guests and has a real thirst for knowledge.
Finally i would like to conclude by saying that we opted to stay at Riad Miski for a full 10 days based on the reviews and i feel that we have a much better overview of the place having got to know it properly therefore do not hesitate to stay here,you will have no regrets.
