I've travelled widely and stayed in some wonderful places, but this was the best. Riad Watier is beautiful. Everything about it is wonderful.
Jean is the perfect host: charming, intelligent, knowledgable, efficient, relaxed, kind, funny... He had excellent recommendations perfectly tailored to my wife, young daughter and I (and I know from talking to other guests he was just as good at showing them suitable things to eat, do and see.) All the other staff were splendid too - often above and beyond the call of duty. (Apologies for talking of matters lavatorial, but, to give one example, my four-year-old daughter had an upset stomach and made rather a mess a couple of times, and the maids were wonderfully understanding - and efficient in cleaning up.)
It was worth visiting just to talk to Jean about his life, his books and his art collection. But, on top of that, the Riad is lovely. It is itself a work of art, but one that is comfortable to live in. The food is great, the beds are huge and luxurious, it's clean and it's welcoming... We spent a wonderful four days there and I felt sad to leave. I want to go back already.More
