Beautiful place, scrumptious food, good location, easy to get back to without a guide. Fabulous hosts and staff. I thought our riad in Fez was fabulous but this place was better still. Thank you! BOOK IT!

Spent a night here in this beautiful Riad. All the rooms are beautiful with amazing furniture. We had our own little outdoor area which unfortunately didn't get the sun a lot but I expect that is a relief in the hotter months! The service and food were good, we ate a delicious chicken and lemon tageine in splendid isolation. The...

Beautiful riad, not too big, very helpful staff (and Moroccan owned - many riads aren't), very central location, absolutely delicious food served with elegance and care, roof terrace for sitting in the sun. finitely highly recommended. Room lighting dim so take a torch if you want to read in bed!
