While everything at this riad was brilliant the helpfulness of the staff was the best I've ever experienced. They really went above and beyond what was expected of them, with everything from directions to telling us how much we should be paying for things. The rooms were excellent and food is delicious.

We were welcomed with a lovely meal of Lamb Tagine cooked by one of the ladies. I would highly recommend this if you land late in the evening, as...

We only have praise for this riad and the staff at this guesthouse! We stayed for three nights at the beginning of May 2013 and stayed in the Rose room for all three nights. This was the beginning of our journey in Morocco and we feel that we got a first-hand feel of what Moroccan hospitality is all about. From...

My partner and I found Riad Papillon at the Destinations exhibition in London and met with the delightful owners Mike and Louise. We love their environmentally friendly approach and their passion for Morocco-this is why we chose their place (as well as the fact we got an amazing deal for staying there for 10 days!) The staff were quite incredible...
