Guestbook comments from the owner

Khadija, la princesse du riad en a fait un palais pour nous.

Ses bons plats ont été un festin digne des plus grands gourmets.

Sa bonne humeur, son humour, son dévouement, sa disponibilité ont rendu ce séjour très agréable et nous nous sommes sentis ici comme à la maison avec l’aide de Mostapha.

I am writing to thank you for the amazing hospitality I received from Khadija and Mustapha. I can categorically say that it was one of the most pleasant stays I have had.

I'd like to thank you for our lovely stay, all the best from our family to yours.
