We stayed here for a week. It's a lovely relaxing quiet place beautifully decorated. Carole is welcoming, friendly and helpful. It's a great place to unwind, centrally located too. The breakfasts on the roof overlooking the sea are absolutely delicious and fresh and homemade

After a most comfortable stay last year, my friends and I agreed we had to stay at Karol's riad again this year. Breakfast is varied daily & delicious, Karol has tips (& can make reservations) on tasty restaurants in all price brackets and she can also arrange riding, hamman appointments etc - a concierge service without the 5* hotel prices...

This is the second year in a row that my friends and I have stayed with Carole, and already we can't wait to go back. Her Ryad is lovely, traditional in style, the rooms are clean and very nicely styled and the roof terrace, where breakfast is served, has beautiful views over the old town and out to the sea....

We stayed here for 10 nights with our 4 children. The hotel is located in an old town, 1 min walk to the market. It's not a luxury hotel- there's no tv in the room for example, but none of my children missed it at all! It lets you experience the local life and local culture. Bathrooms are very Moroccan-style...

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful when it came to restaurant recommendations and places to go. The rooftop terrace where we had breakfast had stunning views over the medina and the breakfast was great (Moroccan pancakes, croissants, fruit salad, eggs and fresh orange juice). All of the rooms are a good size and decorated in their own unique style....

A long overdue review for our visit Jan 2016. The ryad is nice and the new owner is lovely; very sweet and helpful. The ryad is centrally located and has a gorgeous view from the roof where wonderful breakfasts were served. Breakfast included eggs which was welcome after all the bread everywhere else. We were warmly greeted by the owner,...

This riad really is a "safe haven" in a peaceful part of the medina. The roof terrace offers fantastic views during breakfast and if you just fancy chilling out and catching some rays on the sun loungers. Staff are so attentive and more than happy to help with any enquiries. Jerome and Carol are amazing people and full of knowledge....

We (2 people) stayed here for two nights. The host (Carol) was just awesome! She always was in close touch with us via email before our arrival wanting to know when we would arrive so they could prepare for our arrival. Upon arrival we were greeted by the lovely housekeeper (I believe she speaks primarily French) and we were shown...
