We absolutely loved our stay in Sidi Kaouki,
it was so relaxing and we felt so well looked after, the staff were just incredible.
We did the cookery course one of the days there and it was fantastic,
we could’t eat for the rest of the day!
Rebali Riads – I cannot speak highly enough of this set up. The larger villa worked perfectly predominantly because we had our own pool so that we did not have to worry about the children making too much noise. On the first 4 days there we were the only couple with children so would have been rather disruptive at the main pool! The owner/managers Mohammed and Fatima could not have been more helpful and welcoming in the gentlest way. They let my daughter go every morning and help them prepare breakfast and they even looked after her for a couple of hours when we went riding. The food was delicious and we went with the chef to the market and bought fish and vegetables and then came back and had a cooking lesson that evening. It was very special.
The location is great for those who want a safe environment but it to feel a little less manicured in the surrounding countryside which is definitely very simple – but that combination suited us perfectly. We all swam in the sea, went surfing, camel riding, horse riding, cooking and even all had a Hamman but the little ones found this too hot. The Hamman at RR is great and was the best Hamman I have ever had and was much better than the one we had in Marrakech.
We were very sad to leave RR and the children both cried – which was very sweet. I am not surprised it is a great place and very relaxing and thank you for recommending it.
For us, it was an excellent choice. The location, quality of the Riad and the superb team at the Riad all helped to make it a superb holiday.
You have an exceptional team with Mohammed and Fatima. I spent time in the kitchen with Hassna learning her cake recipes. It is rare to find such an exceptional team of people, from manager through to gardener. Everyone was genuinely interested that we were having a good time. Absolutely superb evening meals which we thought were tremendous value.
Absolutely lovely – spacious, comfortable and very relaxing. Loved the staff – the manager and assistant manager were both terrific, very helpful, very well informed and nothing was too much trouble. Really excellent – as were all the other staff. Delicious food every evening. Monica, in the hamman was wonderful – what an expert. The beach at Sidi Kaouki is a knock out. We turned left and walked along until the rocks, then headed inland and found a small cafe. Not sure I want you to promote this as part of the beauty of the place was the emptiness and lack of tourists! Lots of birds to see and young boys with small scruffy herds of goats wandering along the scrubland behind the acres of sand – just magical. Saw a wild tortoise in the sand dunes – maybe the highlight of that day!
We loved everything about Rebali Riads. We usually self-cater, so it was a real luxury to have the option of being catered for by Rebali’s chef. We only self-catered 1 night out of 8 and the rest of the time we dined in our villa – fantastic food & different every evening. The breakfasts were amazing too. The managers and staff were really kind & helpful. Mohammed booked various activities for us (a camel ride to a nearby village for lunch with a Berber family, horse riding along the beach, surf lessons for the kids, taxi rides to Essaouira) all of which were great fun – especially the fact that the camels & horses came into the garden to collect us. Tea & cake at 5pm was a great chance to talk to other guests & swap information. We’re already trying to work out when we can go again!
We stayed for 5 nights and would love to have more. The Villa (Sila) was even better than in the photo’s. The service from Mohammed and Meryam was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. Afternoon tea is an inspired idea. Meeting other guests and sharing experiences whilst still able to retain privacy. The chef was delightful and the breakfasts and evening meals were of the highest quality. The evening meals were very good value. I cannot recomend it highly enough, the excursions were varied and there was more we wanted to do. A good way to leave, knowing you want to come back for more.
Loved Rebali Riads, Mohammed was fantastic, catering for our every need.
We absolutely LOVED Rebali Riads. Great service lovely people. Wonderful accommodation.
It is the best place I have ever been in Africa. Me and my family absolutely adored it. It has a lot of activities for us and the children. My children hate doing irritating, childish activities, but the ones selected here were absolutely perfect. Everything was amazing. Thanks to all the staff and Mohamed! We are desperate to go back!
Everything about this place is excellent, probably this is down to having the friendliest staff I have been privileged to have met. Mohammed is really very efficient and well educated, nothing is too much trouble for the staff; food is absolutely first class. I can reccommend the trip to an ordinary home in the village just up the road, this is the home of the gardener at the Riad – his mother is so hospitable and a good cook; a must do to see deeper into the local culture. I was here for a week in September lovely weather brilliant night skys a real hit.
