Super séjour dans ce joli riad :) nous avons pu profiter de la terrasse et de la piscine, c'était très agréable. La résidence est bien située (15mn à pied du centre de la Médina) tout en étant calme.
Notre chauffeur nous attendait a l'aéroport, pas de prise de tête, Jeff avait tout géré.
Sur ses conseils également, nous avons passé une journée dans la vallée de l'Ourika, magnifique.
Bref, nous recommandons et reviendrons avec plaisir.
Lovely place! Really nice pool to cool off, and the riad is really nicely designed with a beautiful roof terrace! Had a really great stay!
Unfortunate, I never met Jeff but his friend was able to show us the place. He was very nice, but did not speak english at all. We had someone who speaks arabic, otherwise I have no idea how we would have found this place.
The apartment was very nice and very big. It is a great experience to live in a traditional Riad. Everything is clean and neat. We enjoyed our stay a lot and I recommend this place!
le logement était tout à fait conforme aux photos du site. Il est très agréable et très bien situé (3min à pied de l'entrée de la médina, 15min de la place Jama el fna). La résidence est très calme et il y a tout ce qu'il faut sur place (épicerie,restauration, pharmacie,location pour excursion) à des prix vraiment raisonnables. Le plus, les piscines sont très belles et bien entretenues et bien agréable avec les températures exceptionnelles du mois de mai que nous avons eu, jusqu'à 46° en milieu de séjour! Seul petit hic, nous n'avons pas pu nous connecter au wifi contrairement à ce qui était indiqué dans l'annonce.
Pour le reste, le séjour à été parfait et nous recommandons vraiment cette location. Merci à Nourredine qui nous très bien accueilli.

* Nice, quiet location, not touristy
* Terrace was great
* Lots of room for us, seems like good value overall
* The swimming pool was closed, apparently this only opens in April
* Very cold at night (February)
* No internet
* Lingering smell of cigarettes
Overall, we had a really good time, though.
It's a gated complex, just outside the ramparts, with lots of Morrocan families living there, as well as a few tourists.
You can get internet
You can get internet at a (nice and quiet) cafe within the complex, and as it turned out having no internet was not a problem for us (but nevertheless it shouldn't be advertised as having internet).
It's possible to walk to djamaa el fna square, not too far, but pretty stressful as there is a lot of traffic going through the little winding streets.
Luckily it's pretty cheap by taxi from here, though, and pretty easy to get a taxi if you walk out to the Route des Ramparts main road nearby. If you get a small taxi (max 3 people) and insist on the counter, it costs under 20 dirham. For more than 3 people you have to take the larger taxi which costs 50 dirhams. (So, if you want to be clever just take two small taxis!)
We found that taxis back from djamaa el fna square didn't want to use the counter, because they would need to return empty, and so we needed to negotiate a slightly higher price in advance.
Not so convenient for eating out, as we basically found ourselves taking taxis out all the time to eat (since the food is so good here). A place right in the centre would be easier for this, but a lot more chaotic I think.
Don't much to be provided in the way of 'essentials', but that's probably just the way it is in Morroco.
(In other places we went by airbnb it was great not to need to buy things like washing up liquid, dishwasher powder, etc. and if we do buy any just leave for the next people, but in Morroco I think that anything left behind will just get taken.)
Otherwise, we really enjoyed our stay in Morroco!
The place was as advertised, wonderful place and great location. The only drawbacks that we had a blocked sink and the house keeper couldn't clear it and not enough heaters ( only one and two air conditioners ). Definitely will recommend in summer.
