The rooms were beautiful and the baths the biggest I've seen! - I had booked the "moon room" for the 4 nights, but after 2 nights Sultana (the cook/housekeeper) requested that we change rooms. Due...

I stayed at this B&B for a week and I could not find a better place to spend my holidays. It was very clean, very cosy environment and a quiet place to relax.. Nelly is very nice and friendly, she is a great hostess. I would definitely stay there again.

The transfer arranged by the riad waited for us, in the airport, for almost 2 hours during which we waited and complained about our luggage. As a result, we entered Vanilla Sma almost at 2:00 a.m. starving and completely frustrated with our luck. Nelly, the wonderful host and Redouan, her assistant, were waiting for us and made all the difference!... More
