This is not your typical review because this is not your typical Riad. Palais Amani is located in the old Medina and requires the usual hike along narrow, stone walkways to get there. You arrive at an otherwise nondescript, old wooden door. It is here where the typical stops and the extraordinary begins. The staff is very professional and yet at the same time they were the friendliest people we met during our travels through Morocco. Our welcoming began by entering the most beautiful courtyard surrounded by full grown orange and lemon trees and a stunning fountain in the center with mosaic columns and floors. It was such a beautiful and calming space. All it needed was an elderly, authentically well dressed, and genuinely nice man with a twinkle in his eye to serve mint tea to guests. Of course, it had that also. We enjoyed tea with the “elder” Mohammed several times during our stay and even though our languages lacked much commonality, we enjoyed our “conversations.” Our suite was very large with all the comforts of home. Large windows with colorful stained glass overlooked the courtyard. Wooden indoor shutters provided privacy. The room was appointed so well that it was hard to leave each morning. Breakfast and dinner were served in the garden just steps from the entrance to our room. The cool early morning and night air made for a perfect dining experience. The bathroom was spacious and there was even an upstairs which could accommodate another person with a bed and separate bath. We were fortunate to have booked a cooking class with the Fez Cooking School which is on the premises in the courtyard and conducted by Chef Hammoud and, in our case, an Arabic-English translator, a young woman named Soukaina. The class included a shopping journey into the old Medina which was one of the most interesting things we did in Morocco. Its ancient maze of shops and vendors is truly remarkable and amazingly well preserved. Chef and Soukaina led the way as they showed us a typical day for Moroccans, stopping for fresh produce and spices for the meal we would prepare, visiting a shop keeper for a bowl of fava bean soup, a staple in the Moroccan diet, and a stop at the poulterer for a look at the chickens used for that night’s dinner. The sights and sounds in the Medina were in many respects unchanged from hundreds of years ago. Back at Palais Amani, we started our cooking class. Soukaina translated our instructions and we had a great time. One of us is a very good cook. The other had issues boiling water. At the end, I was a better cook and my husband learned how to expertly boil water. Actually, he learned much more than that! Unfortunately, we were at times too busy to enjoy all that Palais Amani has to offer. There is an extraordinary rooftop area where you can dine or have drinks which offers breathtaking panoramic views of the city, of sunsets, and the surrounding countryside. We enjoyed dinner on the rooftop one night and throughly enjoyed the cool breeze and full moon. The only reason we didn’t enjoy the rooftop more was because the courtyard and its gardens are captivating! We are from Florida and are not impressed with citrus trees, but these fully grown, 25 feet tall canopied orange and lemon trees covered in fruit was a wonderful way to start each morning and end each evening. The large mosaic tiled fountain in the center of the courtyard offered tranquility not otherwise found in the bustling Medina. We only explored the old city, but there is also a modern and quite upscale version of Fes to explore as well. As always, it is the people who elevate a 5 star facility into a 5 star experience. At Palais Amani, our 5 star experience was provided by Abdul in reception, Chef Hammoud and his staff, Soukaina our interpreter, and the “elder” Mohammed. We stayed three nights and when it was time to go, it seemed as though we had just arrived. Go to Fez, and stay at Palais Amani.

We spent two nights here in the architectural marvel! The hotel staff upgraded us for free to a suite that was fit for royalty. We were able to use the hammam while we were there and we felt so refreshed afterwards! You could easily spend a week here and still not see all the sites.

We treated ourselves to a hammam of “1001 Nights” at the Palais Amani Spa during our visit to Fes. Highlight of our visit! We were tired from travel and walking the medina and this was the perfect medicine. From the front desk to the baths to the massage - we loved it. After experiencing four different hammams in four different cities of Morocco, this was my favorite.
