This small riad owned by American couple, Janet and Andrew, though homey and comfortable, felt authentically Moroccan......complete with spectacular sights (a 360〫view of Tangiers from the rooftop terrace), exotic sounds (call to prayer from mosque next door and the neighborhood communal water source outside the front door, and tantalizing smells (the cedar firewood being stored for the winter, Moroccan spices and Janet's fresh baked breakfast delights). The color coordinated decorating touches in each room added to the Moroccan ambience. Our hosts knew exactly what to suggest for our short time there. Their knowledgeable guide took us on a trek through the entire Medina and into parts of the new city stopping at historical sites and places of interest.....who hasn't heard the reputation of Cafe Baba!? They also arranged for their driver to take us on a driving tour to Cap Spartel, Hercules Grotto, and Chez Abdou, a lovely seaside restaurant where you pick out your own fish for them to grill. We couldn't have done all this so quickly and easily without their help. We highly recommend this Riad if you are looking for a truly Moroccan experience.
