Driss, the husband of the owner, was extremely welcoming when he picked us up from the airport after our midnight arrival. He spoke very good English, was really informative about Tangier, and was great to talk with about veganism. An issue regarding the airport shuttle service cost us an unexpected $35 that we hadn't factored into the cost. The website advertises an airport pickup available, but doesn't list a price. When I called to arrange the pickup, no one mentioned the cost. I assumed that meant this was a free service included in the stay, which made staying that far out of town very worth it. Sadly, it costs a lot to get picked up (it would cost more in a taxi). This should have been listed on the booking page. All the other hotels in the area list the cost of airport pickup.
Beautifully decorated. Lovely breakfast each morning. Very nice terrace for lounging--I highly recommend sitting there and listening to one of the evening calls to prayer. The owner and each member of the staff were very pleasant and kind. Quiet noisy outside of my room each night--of course that's not the riad's fault and could very well be an isolated incident. Also just a touch expensive.
