The best of both worlds at the Mountain Riad. Close to the beach, and peaceful in the mountains. Plenty of space to relax on the terrace and do some yoga and view the sunset. Clean rooms and showers. I will stay here next time I visit.

It was a short but pleasant stay at the little oasis on top of the mountain. It's a 5 minute drive from thagazout up the hill and easy to find thanks to sams good description. Nice and quiet place. We would have stayed longer if we hadn't booked another riad before.
