An oasis just on the edge of the medina which allows taxis to get relatively close to the hotel (1 minute walk). Superb grounds with a beautiful roof-top terrace and tranquil courtyard and spacious rooms. Unfortunately, the man on duty spoilt our stay with painfully poor service. We waited at least half an hour to get waited on for dinner...

after arriving by plane it was a brisk walk through the medina to arrive at our riad. Once inside this modest dwelling became a tranquil and delightful stay with the constant smell of incense and the hospitable staff, we were able to relax straightaway. Our room was a good size and fitting in with the decor of mosaics and brass...

Riad Shama and its sister Riad nearby were both stunning, as the pictures suggest. We stayed as a couple for 3 days at Shama and then 1 night at the other Riad. We stayed in the suite at the end of the pool, the room was 30 foot long (or more) with a double vaulted ceiling. The doors opened on...

We have spent 4 days at this riad with 5 friends. Staff was very nice. The location is a little bit far from the centre, but we could always count on our 'angel' driver Fetah to bring us to the centre and pick us up late at night! What a great service!

We stayed 2 nights in a good room in this beautiful riad not far away from the main ancient medersa of the medina. A special thanks to Youssef for his dedication when he fixed our ac troubles. Good value for the money.

There are some very good things about Riad Shama and some not so good. 1. The Riad itself is charming with a lovely pool in the centre of the hotel (garden / courtyard). This is great for relaxing and some guests seem to just sit here all day, bathing when hot and calling for drinks or food when required. The...
