The enthusiasm with which other travellers had written about this riad raised our expectations - we were not disappointed. The staff were courteous and pleasant, the ambience extremely tasteful and the food was well cooked and presented with a wide enough choice for us to eat dinner in the restuarant for four out of the seven nights we stayed without getting bored. We upgraded to a suite (booked through a British Airways package holiday) which was superb and made the holiday for us - not so expensive to do it, £160 extra for the week. As others have written, it is extraordinary how you step through a door from the hurly burly of the city into an oasis of calm within the courtyard of the riad. This riad was built in 2007 but based on traditional designs and they have done a cracking job. The pool area looked rather cramped in the photos but we found it was fine in reality. A couple of fairly minor points - service could be very slow at lunchtime (dinner was good) so allow plenty of time and the air freshener in the bathroom was a very strong and persistent scent of naphtha (mothballs) - not to everyone's taste, maybe it's a Moroccan thing? Overall, though, Les Borjs de la Kasbah is highly recommended.
