A wonderful journey back in time seasoned with a taste of the glorious days of the traditional Moroccan lifestyle...I recommend Riad Rcif for every one who loves to get a feel of luxury and intimacy.. The suite, the food, the comfort... Many historical sites are steps away through the tiny paved old pathways of the old medina

The most amazing place I have ever stayed in. Excellent service hospitality above expectations. Accomodation superb. All personel going the extra mile. The view from the terrace is breath taking and one can spend hours seeing something new every view second. Once again thank you all for making your Palace my home during our stay

To stay at Riad Rcif is a truly amazing experience. It's a former palace that has been restored and every inch is a wonder for the eyes. Absolutely incredible. The host and his family take great care of you. We stayed in Suite Aida and it is beautiful, like being in a museum but with modern amenities. A 10 out...

The customer service is outstanding and the staff are friendly and helpful . Whilst there were minor issues in regards to the air conditioning not working and also the basins being small causing water to fill up the basin itself, the staff did their best to accommodate accordingly. The quality of the food is amazing and the hotel is conveniently...

This place was jaw dropping. No pictures can give you an accurate depiction of its beauty. Everything is hand carved and painted. Hasan, one of the staff members, was super awesome and always accomodating - I wanted to take him with me. Lol. Hicham, the owner, was also very nice and knowledgeable about the area. This stay definitely exceeded all...

I was absolutely blown away when I walked into this Riad. It has exceeded every expectation. Hospitality, food, and accommodations were superb. The staff members were kind and always helpful. Especially Hasan who went out of his way to make the guests feel comfortable and accommodated. The food made by Fatima, was authentic and flavorful, to say the least. Awesome...
