A Riad, which means garden in Arabic, is a traditional Moroccan house or palace with an interior courtyard that usually features a fountain and palm trees with no roof.
The riad craze started in Marrakesh, and quickly spread to Fez and Essaouira. Since then it has gone nationwide and almost in every Moroccan town.
These traditional guesthouses are fantastic value for money and offer similar benefits to many of the hostels in Morocco– a friendly, family-run atmosphere, the odd free meal and private rooms. You will feel a typically
Moroccan! With beautiful decor like tiled courtyards and giant floor cushions
For those seeking an authentic Moroccan style of accommodation, the riad offers its guests a haven of tranquility, an architectural treasure, an insight into tradition, culture and craftsmanship and an opportunity to
meet into an anonymous location.
