About Riad Mabrouka
Ryad Mabrouka was one of the first riads converted into a guesthouse in Fez. Since its opening, in April 2001, it has received thousands of clients from all over the world. Warm and professional staff offer guest the most enjoyable stay and let them feel true Moroccan hospitality.
The Ryad Mabrouka is a very personal little property and its tranquil, well-tended garden, swimming pool and panoramic views of Fez's medina make it a winner with its guests. Much of the original Arabo-Andalusian style has been maintained through the refurbishment of its original owner, Michel Trezzy. The interior courtyard with sculpted plaster work on the columns, magnificent cedar wooden doors, a babbling fountain and the coloufurl and typical moroccan mosaïcs opens onto a fragant garden of roses and citrus trees and a small but inviting swimming pool. From the roof top terrace, you will delight in the panoramic view of the "Médina" and the neighbouring countryside.
This riad is available as part of any tailor made holiday with Rediscover the World.
Accommodation: Ryad Mabrouka offers 8 rooms and suites, all restored in the Morrocan style with colourful "zelliges"(mosaïcs), sculpted plaster work, and carved cedar wood. All rooms have their own private bathroom facilities, done in mosaïcs and taddelak, and they all have air-conditionning.
Each room is unique in its decor, associating the charm of the traditional Morrocan architecture with family heirloom furnishing of different French styles.
Facilities: riad has some lovely citrus trees offering shade in the Mediterranean garden. Full breakfast included with breads, pastries, jams and fruit juice - all home-made. Dinners and other meals on request from a choice of Moroccan, French and Mediterranean cuisine. Hammam, swimming pool, roof top terrace with panoramic view. During the warm period of the year, breakfast is served in the garden.
During your stay at Ryad Mabrouka, you will enjoy the peaceful mediterranean garden away from the flurry of the medina. You may just sit in the shade of the citrus and orange trees, have a drink or relax by the pool.
The riad's terrace offers a unique view on the old town with its myriads of minarets and on the surrounding hills covered with olive groves and farm land showing a palette of colors varying according to the seasons. Often between November and April the horizon shows the snow capped Middle-Atlas mountains.
On request is a massage service at the riad, a very relaxing offer after a full day visit in the medina! Several hammams are available a few minute walk from the riad, from the traditional and inexpensive local hammam to the more luxurious hammams at other riads.
Transfer Time from Airport: 30 minutes (private transfer).
"We stayed in 14 different hotels, all but two very extremely good and 3 or 4 of them were outstanding. Our favourites were Palais Didi (Meknes), Riad Mabrouka (Fez), Les Borjs de la Kasbah (Marrakech) and Dar Zitoun (Taroudant). All of these were superb in every way."
