Beautiful Riad hotel

Caloundra, Australia

We had three nights in this room on the top floor up four flights, no lift, under the roof terrace. It was large with a separate toilet (with its own door) and large bathroom. The porter took our bags up thank goodness, but we didn’t expect a lift of course. It was light and airy and a good view from the roof over the beach. The courtyard hosted three Moroccan musicians each evening for happy hour, so don’t try to take a nap then. They were great, and loud. We had breakfast included but I’m afraid it wasn’t special. They couldn’t help me with my gluten free diet so an omelette was my meal for all breakfasts. We did have dinner there the first night but found much better meals in the restaurants nearby. It was very clean. My bed creaked an awful lot when trying to get up quietly at night.

LOVELY RIAD IN NICE TOWN

Danbury, Connecticut

Excellent location. Quirky yet comfy rooms. No A/C, but it is Morocco. Pretty public area. Nice staff. Ate lunch in the restaurant. The equivalent of 13 USD for three spectacular courses. Certainly worth trying.
