Best place to stay in the Medina!
The staff at the Karmela were super friendly and helpful. The Riad was beautiful and the meals delicious. We booked all our excursions at the front desk and everything couldn’t have gone more smoothly. I highly recommend them.

Just be careful that they don’t send you to an adjacent inferior property that they own. I think Expedia should consider dropping them from their site if they continue to do this.

Had a great time here as the staff was accommodating and helpful and made our stay a pleasant experience. Would definitely return in the future.

2/10 Poor

I never confirmed the booking and nor did I go on this holiday, yet I’ve been charged. Expedia only contacted me thanking me for my visit and asking for feedback. My card was charged without even checking with me or confirming anything.
