We stayed in the" Zen Suite" for 2 nights during our 19 days of travel through Morocco. Although, the breakfast was wonderful and the roses and riad beautiful, it was not relaxing to have 3 people (2 adults, 1 child) staying in a room with no wall to section off the bathroom. There was only a thin curtain, with a gap, to separate it from the "bedroom" area. As we were told by reception, perhaps if we weren't "feeling well", we could go downstairs to the riad courtyard and use the restroom!
I don't expect this when paying a fairly expensive rate to stay at the property. Not only that, but there were windows that looked into the lovely bathroom area from the main walkway to and from rooms. Perhaps, they need to reconsider the "zen suite" or name it something else altogether!
