Beautiful Riad, everything was perfect!
We had a very relaxing stay at Riad Dar Abi. The Riad is beautiful and in a perfect location. Out of all the Riads we stayed in whilst in Morocco, the breakfast here was the best. The room was spotless and the staff were really helpful and very friendly. Thank you Julien and Fatima for being so welcoming! We will be back one day for sure.
