Paco is the owner of this beautiful and elegant place where you can certainly relax and enjoy the city. The room was very clean and nice, the location is great, just 1 min from the heart of the city. Breakfast was great.
Wi-fi signal in the room was quite weak, but apart from this everything has been outstanding!
Lovely friendly staff very clean and tidy new fresh towels every day breakfast was given when you were ready offered a Moroccan tea on arrival and given our own key to the building so we could come back at any time of the night
No complaints at all excellent value for money, the only thing which is of no fault to the staff was that the wifi was not available in our room as we expected and only in communal areas which was a really minor thing
Paco is a great guy willing to answer all your questions. He also provide you with a map of the city telling you what to not miss! The rooms are so beautiful and the breakfast is good.
The staff was very helpful and friendly. The location is very good, just in the medina. The riad is cosy and nice. The breakfast very good with fresh orange juice and bakery. The room was nice, big enough to spend few nights.
To improve the cleaning and the furniture of the room.
Well located,clean, helpfull and friendly staff...we will certaenly suggest this riad to all out friends.
Wi fi not available in the rooms
Lovely lady showed us around and let us have access to front door key great location very safe, very clean and a good view from the terrace
No wifi in bedrooms but not a major issue
The owners of this Riyad are very friendly and helpful and the location of this place is great.
The staff were wonderful and very kind and helpful. Rooms were lovely and beautiful decor. Great location right in the centre
The bathroom was quite small but it was fine. There wasn't much to dislike !!
Great stay, the breakfast was really nice, staff very friendly and helpful.
Lovely Location and a beautiful and fresh room. The stand out point was the extremely friendly and kind staff who helped us tremendously when we were in a sticky situation. Thank You!
The room we chose was light and airy with a window to the outside. The decor inside is traditional and tasteful. There is always hot water for showers. The staff are very friendly and helpful. This is our second stay here.
Lovely, helpful staff, beautiful room, fantastic location!
I loved everything!
Very nice riad, good location and nice lady who helped us with good tips. We felt at home and would liked to have stayed longer. We had the blue room
No sea view but that didn't matter...
Everything was just perfect and I would come back again!

So easy to find from the Supratours bus station. Nattie is a great host. She answered our many questions with a smile and gave us tips on places to eat. She even had a small breakfast ready for our 6am bus to Marrakesh. We met great folks there and enjoyed our stay very much. We want to come back.
We stayed in the Blue Azur room which is fine only it's up 3 flights of stairs so maybe next time one of the lower rooms. Also the loud speaker for the 4am call to prayer is right outside.
We were made very welcome, nothing was too much trouble. Our hosts were wonderful, there was plenty hot water, a nice breakfast and great advice on where to set and what to do.
Only very minor, but the room was very small - no wardrobe and a very small shower tray - but no complaints for a short stay.
The staff were very helpful, giving us advice on where to eat, what to do, showing us locations on a handy map. Lovely breakfast and mint tea on arrival. The town is a bit of a maze but it wasn't too much trouble to find. Lovely room with en-suite.
Friendly personal, lovely rooms, top cost-performance ratio.
shower overflow in the atlasroom
We received a warm welcome and were given keys to come and go as we pleased so it really felt like a home from home, and the roof terrace was perfect for catching the sun
Very nice port city, great hosts great place to stay, i Will do it again and again
Great location and very friendly. Would highly recommend.
This is the second time I have stayed here and this time came with 6 others on my recommendation. Everyone loved the place. Paco and Annie made us very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. We asked on our second night if Annie would cook us a meal. She did and it was amazing, catering for all tastes and dietary requirements. I would not hesitate to recommend to others (as I have done in the past) and would gladly stay there again.
Nice room comfy bed nice roof terrace nice staff safe
breakfast little bland needed eggs or cheese
Very nice and helpful staff, warm welcome, clean and nice rooms, great stay altogether!
