A huge elegant airy restaurant that a guide led us to. We went for late lunch and had the whole place to ourselves except someone smoking off in the hotel area. One of the best tagines I've had in the 4 weeks there. They called it traditional style even though I don't think the chicken was cooked in the pot...

My wife and I just recently stayed at the Blanco Riad in Tetouan while taking a 4 day trip to Morocco. The hotel staff were very gracious and accommodating. The room was very clean and we felt safe while with them. The hotel provides excellent WiFi service for all levels of the hotel. Hot water was in abundance for the...

I can't recommend this Riad more! You get old world Morocco (the location is in the Medina right next to the Imperial Palace just a few steps down a passage) with beautiful, authentic Moroccan decor plus the comforts of a modern and stylish boutique hotel. We stayed for 2 nights and loved every minute of our stay. It was a...

In the land of spices it seems ironic that the chefs of this country just dont seem to know what to do with them. Tetouan is no exception and if this restuarant is the best of a bad bunch take a packed lunch. Come on Blanco its not really excusable to cook a piece of fish to within an inch...

We had two rooms in October, 2016, for two nights. One was a grand suite.....all old tile......very cool! The hotel is small, with a tiny fountain in the lobby. Friendly, helpful staff hooked us up with an excellent guide. The food was very good....no alcohol, but we did manage to find some beer to bring in with us! Cars cannot...

The riad was great. Our room was large and quiet with lots of natural light. It was tastefully furnished and the bed was comfortable. The riad central patio was well designed. The dinner was so good the first night we had dinner again the second night even though we had many choices of other restaurants. When we asked the owner...

We had a marvelous experience at Blanco Riad! The staff are comfortably multilingual, courteous, and were extremely accommodating to our every need. Mirabel, the owner, patiently answered all of our anxious, pre-departure-to-Morocco email questions quickly and succinctly. Asma, once we arrived, was amazingly helpful and charming, and was entirely correct that Tetouan is the place to get the best exchange...

The Blanco Riad was outstanding, with excellent facilities, a great restaurant, and very warm and accommodating hospitality. The hotel staff arranged a super early and all day taxi journey with little notice, and there was ability to access spa services. Breakfast was fresh and local and the restaurant was the best we could find in Tetouan (and I was with...

Recently stayed three nights at this pretty Riad. Lovely room but a/c faulty so with no question the staff moved us to another room. The thing that made our stay so successful was the attention to detail and helpfulness of the staff and particularly the owner Maribel.
