When you start looking for guidance on Riads on Trip Advisor, what you find is a mirage of reviews written by users who pop up once and once only, leaving you in somewhat of a quandry as to whether to believe them or not. You start looking for the slight criticisms which make the the review more real, but it is still very difficult to tell. so it was with some trepidation that we entered the first Riad we stayed at in Morocco - Riad Nakhla.
We were very pleased to find a scrupulously clean Riad which was in the process of having the walls and woodwork repainted in time for the summer season. Unfortunately my photos are taken a couple of days into our stay there and do not reflect the state in which we found the room.
Our room was the smallest of the three Riad rooms we stayed in whilst in Morocco, but the price very much reflected this and I thought the Riad was good value for money. There was enough storage space and we didn't feel cramped in the room which was very airy.
The Riad terrace had great views of the sea and a glassed in area for days when the famous Essaourian wind was just too much. We had breakfast up here a couple of days (typical breakfast - Moroccan pancakes, bread, jam, orange juice and tea/coffee - 30 dirhams - not included in room rate).
The location of the Riad was great - just off the main Medina street (Ave de l'Istiqlal), easy to find and handy for the town, beach and harbour. The staff were very helpful and arranged a traditional hamman for us. Unlike the 2 more expensive Riads we stayed in, Nakhla had locks on the doors.
I would definitely recommend this Riad.
