What a magnificent place to rest your head. We are in the middle of the town, we see and enjoy the locals. Go for stroll or just soak up the charm of this hotel. If only the rest of the world could offer such clasis authentic hotels. Enjoy

We loved this riad. It was cozy and had many wonderful extras. We would come here again and recommend it. It fit perfectly into our tour with Soulfull Travel Adventures. It was a relaxing oasis after a wonderful day exploring.

I think that my title is a fairly accurate base description of this hotel. However, I think that there is a lot of room for improvement here. We arrived at the Riad after almost 10 hours of travel (plane, train and automobile). I had emailed to advise of my arrival time, but evidently there is no one that is keeping...

First of all we thank you for choosing The ARABESQUE, Mrs , we were surprised that the services did not meet your expectations, following your claim that you have exceeded the limits, we respect your point of view.

The lamb tagine was amazingly tender and delicious. After the lamb, the chicken tagine was not as tasty as it felt overcooked. The 2 Moroccan musicians were friendly and helped along with our birthday celebration even though we couldn't communicate in words. The ambiance was authentic and inviting. Overall a good experience.

Hello , Thank you for appreciating the ambience and dinner except the chicken was overcooked, you could cancel out there and ask for another. I will think of your complaint to properly present the next time. Thank you

As part of our tour of Morocco we booked a two night stay at the Riad Arabesque. Our arrival by car left us wondering what we had gotten ourselves into. The road up the the Riad was unmade and seemed to go through a builder's recycling dump and a small shanty town. (We have since found out that this entrance...

We came to Riad Arabesque for a dinner as part of our coach tour of Morocco. I have to say it was one of the best meals I had in Morocco because of the food, the ambiance of the setting and the absolute beauty of the Riad itself. We had lamb tagine with sides of eggplant, a tomato jam and...

I recently had the pleasure to step back in time whilst visiting Fez. Riad Arabesque is a gateway to a world of palaces and pleasures of the good life from times gone by. The location adjacent to the Palais Jamai is without peer, and the views from the terrace give a 360 panorama over one of the most ancient and...

This is probably the the most beautiful place we've ever stayed at and we've traveled a lot and have been lucky enough to stay at a lot of wonderful places.

As a group of 10 people we all opted for the Riad option for our coach tour at an additional charge. Wow, we made the correct decision. The walk down the alley way from our coach was a little concerning wondering what we had let ourselves in for. On arriving and entering the Riad we immediately fell in love with...
