The hotel was our first stop on a 2 week long, spring break caravan adventure in Morocco with our 4 young children (all under 10) and grandparents. We chose the Riad Blanco because it had a good write up, was convenient and was fair priced.
Turned out to be a great choice. They were ready for us. When we arrived at the port, just as they had told us via email, they had organized a transfer which was seamless. When we arrived into the center of Tetouan, there were a couple of people to greet our group of 8 and shuffle all our luggage to the Riad hidden on a side street.
We were all so pleasantly surprised at how beautiful, authentic and professional it all felt. The open atrium in the center was bright and airy. Only later in the trip did I realize how that was not too typical. The rooms were beautifully decorated, spacious and they had even prepared a crib for our youngest.
We had a amazing dinner and dessert at the Riad (served with a lot of pomp) and slept in 3 adjacent rooms. It was perfect. When we woke up, they had arranged a guide for the medina who spoke perfect English and was patient enough to deal with our huge group.
After another day sitting on the waterfront and buying more rugs and tea lamps than we could really use, we were ready to head out to Fez. Just as we were about to get on our mini-bus, one of the waiters from the hotel hopped on the bus with a basket of fresh fruit , dried dates and figs and some bread and yogurt for the ride, It was amazing. They treated us like royalty from the minute we showed up and past the time we left.
Great, great, great.....
