It's not that I didn't like this, there was absolutely nothing I didn't like about this Riad. I was reassured by a previous review I had read and want to reinforce to others considering booking this Riad...do not be alarmed or put off by the drive to the Riad, you will drive through areas which haven't yet been built up or developed and eventually you will end up on what appears to be little more than a dirt track well away from the city! Stick with it....the haven of luxury that awaits you is more than worth the wait!!
It's fair to say I loved every aspect of staying in this Riad, to be more specific -
Great communication with Jihane before our stay.
Free airport transfers.
Outstandingly beautiful, warm, welcoming, luxurious Riad set in beautiful manicured gardens surrounded by twinkling tea lights!
Stunning outside pool and terrace area.
Fantastic, comfortable, beautifully decorated and appointed bedroom and bathroom.
Great breakfast, lunch and dinners.
Alcohol is not served at the Riad, but you are allowed to bring your own in and they will happily provide you with a bottle opener, ice and glasses!
Free shuttle service (inside office hours) from the Riad to the Medina.
Outside office hours driver can still be arranged from Riad to Medina for very reasonable fare (150 dirhams return).
Very friendly and attentive staff, nothing is too much trouble.
A late check out.
In truth everyone at the Riad was warm, welcoming and friendly...nothing was too much trouble, even the pet dog Hermes was friendly!
To sum up, Riad Jawad is a perfect luxury retreat after a busy day sightseeing in the square and the souks, close enough to everything to be accessible but far enough away to provide a peaceful and relaxing end to the day!
If you're looking for a traditional Riad but one that isn't directly within the chaos, hustle and bustle of the Medina, this place is without question, perfect!
