Riad Kalaa Reviews

Riad Kalaa in Rabat was great..

Riad Kalaa in Rabat was great – the only ‘negative’ was a slight smell  of cats in the ground floor room of our suite! The staff were very helpful and the driver a joy (Abdul) 

My French was/is rusty, so I am not sure if I gave Abdul enough cash when we left him at the airport. He had made a detour to Sale and escorted us around the potteries – so helpful. He also took us to Casablanca on Thursday where his knowledge and expert driving were invaluable. We loved Morocco and were very glad to have chosen Rabat rather than Marrakech which I understand is always crowded. Rabat has plenty of interest for a short break and it was great to be on the coast. The markets in Rabat are very close to Riad Kalaa so we didn’t actually need guidance –who needs the shops in city centres which are duplicated all over the world? It was fun discovering the city for ourselves. Ryanair is not a pleasant flying experience but that can’t be helped since they are the only airline flying into Rabat – Stansted ‘sucks'!!
