I spent 7 nights at the riad. Locationwise really good: not too far from the main attractions, and not too filled with tourists. No noise from the streets. The riad was really clean and aircondition in the room worked perfectly. Wifi worked pretty well. Breakfast was good. They don't have a printer, but I got help with printing the boarding passes.
The real jewels of Riad Menzeh is the staff; I had a really good time with Youssef and Abdou. They were making a long day, but both were always super friendly, helpful and had the time to chat. I was travelling alone, so it was really nice to have someone to explain about the culture, give restaurant tips etc. The next time I travel to Morocco, I'll definitely want to stay where ever these guys are working.
Some general tips: Book a taxi from the airport through the riad or ask them to meet you at the nearest square when you arrive. Seriously. Saves you from a lot of troubles. And downloading the offline Google Maps is a really good idea. Wouldn't have survived without it.
I booked the "2 days 1 night" trip to Zagora through the riad. Seeing the High Atlas Mountains, watching the Milky Way during night while listening to traditional music, camel ride, sunrise... It was all great. Definitely worth the money. But if you go there, make sure you have someone in the same car/minibus who speaks English AND French/Arabic. Our driver wasn't speaking English, but luckily there was a tourist who could translate what the driver was saying. And take enough money with you (the lunch restaurants were a bit pricey and you have to leave tips for guides in many places).
