Welcome to The Beautiful Mountain Riad,
To help make everyone's stay the best I just ask that people are respectful of others staying at the riad and leave the riad how they find it.
Please wash up and clean the kitchen after cooking to stop any insect problems.
You will find supplies for breakfast on the top shelf inside the fridge this shelf is for everyone. Please feel free to leave your food on any other shelf and don't eat others food.
If you leave food on the top shelf it may well be eaten by others!!!
It would be a great help if you have a car if you could take any full dustbin bags to the dustbins in Taghazout on your way out as there is no refuse collection in the mountains. :)
This is Africa so please be careful with the water, please try not to leave taps running and take short showers.
There is a washing machine available at the riad please ask if you would like to use it. There is a 40 Dirham charge per wash.
If you need any help with anything or you have any questions during your stay please do not hesitate to ask I am always happy to help.
Hope You enjoy your stay !!
Sam and Julie are great hosts. They made us feel welcome. Sam was patient and always ready to help. We checked in quite late and he waited for us and arranged for a pick up from the airport.
I traveled with my wife and children. My daughter's birthday was the next day and in a short notice, Julie baked a delicious cake for her. The room initially assigned to us was small and next day Sam let us use the next room too for free as it was vacant!
The listing was pretty much accurate. We met a few other wonderful guests there. All in all it was a memorable visit.
Beautiful located Riad, great place to relax, Sam and Silvi are great hosts!!! Sam helps in every possible situation renting a car, taking surf classes, transfer from the airport... And Silvi makes one of the best hummus!;)
Looking forward to coming back one day!! Thank you guys:)!
Sam is a perfect host. From the moment the door of the riad opens, you really have the Moroccan feeling. And he did it all by himself!
We really enjoy our stay and going to tell our friends about it!
We, my boyfriend, my 3 year old daughter and I, stayed at Riad Montagne for a week and loved it. A calm and beautiful place to retreat to when Marocco sometimes became a bit overwhelming. Sam, our host was very friendly and helpful. We highly recommend Sams Mountain Riad - Also if you have kids - Molly loved it!
Me and my girlfriend stayed three weeks at Sam's place and enjoyed it very much. Good host and the house with surroundings is as advertised, awesome. Thumbs up!

About the Host, Sam
Im originally from the north of England .
I came to morocco the first time 11 years ago and fell in love. Then 5 years ago I returned for a 5 week holiday and after 2 weeks i rented a house for a year and decided to stay. five years later im still here Having spent 4 years living in Taghazout I longed for something a bit more traditional and less touristy and then found a run down riad in Ait bihi 2.9km into the mountains behind Taghazout and after spending the last 11 months renovating my Riad it has now become the hidden gem just outside Taghazout.
With my years of experience in morocco I can show you the hidden beauty of Morocco and make sure you have a stay to remember.
Your here for a good time not a long time ;)
