We arrived via bus late at night and were promptly picked up by two very friendly staff members.
In fact, everyone working at this riad is wonderfully friendly and accommodating. If we needed a ride somewhere, it was offered free of charge and without hesitation. We never felt pressured into booking a particular tour package and, on the day we did nothing but sit by the pool and chill all day, we were left alone to do our thing.
We loved the rooms here - comfy beds, clean, hot water with great water pressure.
The restaurant here had great food and the complimentary feast at breakfast was enough to fill even the hungriest of bellies.
We also booked a camel safari through Mamouche and our camels were waiting right outside the hotel doors! The safari was great - an hour and a half ride through beautiful dunes to a camp with warm tents. We were served a traditional Moroccan dinner (which even included oranges for dessert!) and our guides played Berber music for us to round out the evening. The guides were very professional and friendly and impressively smart - as each spoke at around 5 languages! (Arabic, Berber, French, English, Spanish...some Italian...who knows what else!) It should be noted though that even though it was just two of us who booked a safari, we were sent out with a group of around 20! We enjoyed the group atmosphere but if you're looking for something more private, that'll probably have to be arranged specially.
Our bags were held while we were out on safari and we were given a room to shower in once we got back. (There is also a common room off the pool area where you can store your bags before the safari and get ready in...it was nice to have, albeit in need of a good cleaning).
Finally, for people like us who love the internet, the wifi signal was strong throughout and the internet worked the entire time we were there at a decent speed considering you're in the middle of the desert!
We definately enjoyed our stay here. Thanks Mamouche!
