Guests at Riad Mamouche will feel they have indeed found paradise as they catch a first glimpse of the tree-filled patio with its central fountain. Intimate seating alcoves are ideal for breakfasting, reading, sipping mint tea or eating a delicious dinner, served by the charming and attentive staff.
