There are two main houses, each decorated in a different style of art work. The theme of the first one is Delacroix. The Delacroix wing is laid out around a courtyard, with a Jacuzzi in the middle. The rooms are upstairs and are lavishly equipped with comfortable beds, a fireplace, air conditioning and a hair dryer. There is no WiFi there because it is not considered an office, but a vacation location. During my stay, I found it to be exceedingly accommodating and luxurious. The second wing is completely done in the style of Matisse. It is built in a fashion similar to the Delacroix wing; except for instead of a Jacuzzi in the center, there is a small swimming pool.

During my stay, I found the food to be excellent. Our dinner was delicious, as was our breakfast which included a variety of different Moroccan breakfast foods. All drinks are complementary, including wine and sodas. The staff is very polite and willing to serve at a moments notice. I enjoyed this riad immensely as it provide a comfortable place to stay with great service and a wonderful introduction to Moroccan culture and hospitality.
